Japan’s Casino Regulatory Commission has listed nine casino games that will be permitted to operate inside the nation’s casinos, with traditional Japanese games such as pachinko, pachislot and mahjong all notable exclusions.
The nine games, contained within the Casino Regulatory Commission’s draft regulations, include 21 variants of games currently banned in Japan but set to be legalised as part of the government’s IR development plans.
The nine games are listed as baccarat (2 types), blackjack (4 types), poker (8 types), Sic Bo, craps, Casino War, money wheel and pai gow, plus electronic games.
Public feedback on the draft regulations will be accepted until May 9. After that, final casino regulations will be decided.
