Q. What is the legal age for online gambling in Singapore?
A. Like the national lottery, you must be over the age of 18 to gamble online.
Q. Is online gambling safe?
A. Online gambling is a major worldwide industry and there are several regulatory organisations in place to protect online gamers, as well as the online casinos themselves.
The vast majority of online casinos are completely safe. Dishonest or fraudulent sites are exposed very quickly. The use of reputable software providers such as Microgaming and Playtech proves that the site employs the very latest random number generators - a sign that their games are entirely fair. Most casinos also reveal their monthly audited accounts on their websites so you can see exactly where their money is going.
