The government of Japan is reportedly working on a new law that would limit Japanese citizens from visiting the upcoming new land casinos in the country too frequently, with weekly and monthly limits on visits.
The Liberal Democratic Party is working on a plan that would limit Japanese punters from entering land casinos three times per week and ten times per every 28 days. The rules would apply to citizens and foreigners that are living in the country, but visitors to the country wouldn't be held to that rule. Japan recently legalized the development of casinos and the activity of gambling in the country.
The lawmakers are also reportedly working limiting the size of a casino's gaming floor to 3% of the overall footprint or to 15,000 square meters. The country is gearing up to get a head start on the upcoming Olympic games, which are to be held in Tokyo. Whether or not the casinos will be ready in time is up for debate.
