The first legal betting in Singapore began with the government’s launch of Singapore Pools in 1968. The lotteries were created as a way to curb illegal gambling in the country, and largely did away with the illegal betting syndicates that once ruled the scene there.
The next legal betting opportunity came for Singaporeans with the official opening of the Singapore Racecourse (Kanji Racecourse or Singapore Turf Club) March 4, 2000. However the history of the club goes way back to 1842.
And then the big guns came with Genting focusing on family entertainment and Sands relying on convention and MICE space to make up the other 95% of their properties. Licensing guidelines allowed a maximum of 5% of the properties to be used for gaming.
