Casino in Singapore

Post by Casino » Sat, 16 Apr 2005 10:16 pm

What are your thoughts on having a casino in Singapore? It is common in many countries, why are some people here holding back, thinking it's a bad idea? It is because many Chinese are avid gamblers and it may affect the families?

Have or don't have it did not make any different. If the person really want to gamber there are thousand of way can get it done. What the government now is doing i personally think is to make Singapore more of an interesting place to stay in. I really feel bore staying this island. If now you will to ask me to name one of your favour place of interesting in Singapore. I can tell you straight non. Bec i can't find any thing interesting place here. So what so Unique about Singapore.? "Uniquely Singapore" I don't think so. Not till the Casino come in. Than i can agreed about using this tagline.

Its too bad Singapore doesnt have much natural resources or wildlife/fauna. But I think it's still a nice country to stay in.

RE casino - I think they have made the right decision. One has to consider the economic benefits the casino and resorts will bring to Singapore. The country's really lagging behind in terms of tourism, and this could be the boost the industry needs. Although, I would have liked to see more action taken to discourage local s'poreans from visiting these glorified gambling dens. I really dont think a petty $2000 annual fee will be enough to scare off Singaporeans. Heck, they spend that much just flying overseas to gamble...I think it'll also be a nightmare trying to regulate who can and cant enter the casinos. Would people need to bring passports etc on entry? Sounds hard... If the government is really concern about the social ills affecting its nation, then more needs to be done...
