|Initiative for legalising sportbetting in Vietnam|
According to reports in Interactive Gaming News, a national sports organisation has revealed plans to legalise the betting on soccer. Until today, sports betting is illegal in Vietnam, but illegal gaming is believed to be taking place massively.
The legalisation of betting should prevent illegal gaming and should allow control on match fixing. The proposal for the legalisation of soccer betting provides for a financial contribution from betting to local soccer activities.
