Online gambling included in regulatory review
S Iswaran, the Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry said the Singapore Government has embarked on a review of the country's regulatory framework on all forms of gambling, including online.

Developments in other countries would be carefully studied before drawing up a framework confirmed Iswaran.
On the terrestrial casino side, a key amendment will be the introduction of a visit limit to the two Integrated Resorts casinos in Singapore.
