Casino gaming in Singapore is highly regulated. To curb illegal syndicates, the government opened up two state-owned sites whose operations exclusively rely on input and guidelines from the government. Private firms, sportsbooks and online casinos are highly illegal and can attract criminal charges. New service providers need legalization before entering the market.
Marina Bay leads in the legal land-based casino establishments. Marina Bay Sands is the largest casino with 700 table games, 2500 gaming machines and numerous video poker machines. However, the Singaporean government is entrusted with running all the facilities. Any proceeds out of the casino gaming are channelled to the government's funds.
