Gambling is Illegal in Indonesia
Gambling is illegal in Indonesia, and those who try to play it face serious consequences. The government is working hard to block online gambling sites, but as you might imagine this is no easy task.
In fact, the government has taken a number of steps towards a full ban since they announced their ambitions in 2012. They have shut down a few locally hosted sites over the past few months, but it is clear that regulating and policing the internet is more complicated than they originally thought.
Until the authorities can make major changes to their gambling laws, foreign websites will be the only place you can wager in Indonesia. There are some ways to get around the ban though.
One way is by registering at an international website and using a virtual private network (VPN). This can allow you to access the gambling website from anywhere in the world, so long as you have an IP address in that country.
Another option is by contacting a local online gambling site with support services that are familiar with the legal environment in Indonesia. These can help you avoid any potential problems.
In addition, there are also several social casinos that allow you to play games with play chips without spending any real money, but this would still be considered gambling as none of your winnings can be withdrawn. Skins gambling and fantasy sports betting are also deemed illegal in Indonesia.
