Perjudian di Indonesia - Gambling in Indonesia
Gambling is illegal in Indonesia. It is the world's most populous Muslim country, with about 85% of its 240 million citizens practicing Islam. Under Islam, gambling of all kinds is strictly prohibited. This means there are no legal Indonesian casinos, poker rooms, bingo halls, or betting shops.
Gambling still takes place, however, and is quite popular, especially in some tourist towns. Underground gambling arcades and sports betting rings can be found in many of the major cities. Because of their uncertain status they often get raided.
