Live Poker Rooms In Indonesia


In Indonesia, the majority population follows Islam which prohibits all forms of gambling. While poker is not outright banned, it falls under the purview of gambling in the country. This means there are no casinos which house poker rooms or independent live poker rooms are allowed to come up.

The same applies to online poker in Indonesia. The government in Indonesia has strict regulations which deter people from indulging in gambling activities or playing card games like poker.

Anyone caught indulging in illegal gambling activities can face up to 5 years in jail. As per some media reports, players or organisers of gambling set ups who were caught by the law enforcement were publicly beaten.

The anti-gambling sentiment which extends to online poker, saw the government blocking over 500K gambling sites since 2018. The rules are no different for home games. As per news reports, many underground poker games are hosted but they are not legal.

Despite news reports stating that the Asia Pacific online gambling market will hit $37.5 Billion by 2028 (IMARC report), the sky rocketing numbers did not entice the Indonesian government to ease the laws on gambling.
