South Korea

Operating an online gambling site in Korea is illegal. Koreans may gamble at foreign websites, as the government has no jurisdiction over them, although it can be difficult to establish an account. Using agents to collect and pay is illegal as well.

Additionally, Korea has been trying to slow down its massive online video game industry, saying much of the nation’s youth is addicted to the games. Playing restrictions have been implemented, with anyone under the age of 16 not allowed to play between midnight and dawn. Those restrictions are currently being challenged in court.
