Online Gaming in Hong Kong

Hong Kong residents are permitted to bet online with the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The Hong Kong Jockey Club is authorized to offer betting on lotteries, horse racing and football over the internet.

In 2002, the Hong Kong Legislative Council banned offshore gambling, including offshore internet gambling, by passing the Gambling (Amendment) Ordinance. Offshore betting and bookmaking are now criminal offenses and carry criminal penalties against offshore gambling agents that promote, facilitate or advertise their products to Hong Kong residents. The maximum punishment for brokers is seven years in prison and a penalty of 5 million HKD, while individual bettors face nine months in prison and a penalty of 30,000 HKD.

In September 2014, the Home Affairs Bureau said that Hong Kong would not block access to unlicensed betting websites even though those sites cannot operate legally.
