So now the big question is: Will Japan's new casinos follow in the crooked footsteps of it Asian casino neighbors...mainly Singapore and Macau?
I don't think it will, although I'm not sure why. I guess it has something to do with Japan's centuries-old honor code, called Bushido. Japanese people just don't tolerate thieves and criminals the way other Asian peoples do.
And I imagine Japanese lawmakers will legislate severe penalties against those casino and poker cheats unlucky enough to be caught plying their trade in the land of the Rising Sun.
Do I think this would deter the hordes of casino and poker cheats that invariably invade new gambling meccas?
Absolutely not! Build casinos and the cheats will come...
