Betting Guide in South Koreaby Jiten Achary Web Master
In South Korea, online betting has been extremely popular. From people getting afraid of gambling to get the permission to gamble online, many things have changed. Now, they are free to play casino games and do betting on the internet.
Legal to bet in Korea
Koreans were only allowed to bet on certain games such as boat-racing and bicycle racing, but things really overturned when South Korea joined the UN. Till 1997, Korea started Sports Toto by which they are now offering bets on football, volleyball, golf etc.
In 2000, they legalized casinos, 2 in Busan, 3 in Kyongju, 2 in Incheon and 8 in Cheju-do. But only some casinos offer to gamble to Korean people.
In 2011, pokerstars.com which is an online gambling website organized a poker tournament. It included 268 players and the winner was rewarded with KRW 717,489,000.
Police work hard enough to stop the mafia-betting and match-fixing are but not too serious about the foreign online betting sites and gambling with friends on holidays.
The steps of betting online from Korea
It is the most important thing to use foreign currency, foreign bookies, and their methods as well. The websites which are being operated by Korea for gambling purposes are mostly run by the mafia and are definitely illegal.
The process is messed up but there are solutions as well. You need to have a verified e-wallet in Euro and a VPN as well which will redirect you to gambling websites. Having all this can ease the chances of online betting and whatever you win can be paid out anytime at the Korean machines.
An e-wallet works as an online bank. Skrill is a place where you can open an account.
• Make sure that you use Euro currency as your account money
• To send money to Skrill, you can use online banking methods or wire transfer.
• When the bank asks you about Skrill, do not mention the actual purpose behind it or the transfers will stop. You can give them another reason but don’t mention gambling.
• You can order a free Skrill MasterCard which will help you in withdrawing money from the ATM.
Step 2- Be ready with your English documents
The online bookies and the E-wallets will ask you for your photo ID and address proof. Better use a passport size photograph. If you are not having a passport, apply it in any provincial offices. Address verification is an even tougher thing to deal with. They ask you for your recent utility bill which will certainly be in Korean and not in English. To get the English version of the bill, you can visit your local district office and you will get one.
Step 3- Buy a Singapore VPN
Korean government does not have any authority over the bookmarkers from the other countries because their websites are legal in European countries and they are legal under the international law as well. For protecting the Sports Toto revenue, the government takes action by blocking some of the gambling websites. Sometimes these websites are redirected to warning.or.kr. You can purchase a Singapore VPN for $15.00 US per month and thus it will become quite convenient for you.
Step 4- Find out an online betting site
Now when you are done with all your documentation process, it is time that you find out some online gambling website and give it a play. The site must be verified either at Toto Community or Toto verification site.
So, here is the guide to online betting in Korea. Hope you will be benefitted!
