Known as one of the most coveted destinations in the world, Indonesia has a lot to offer its visitors. Not only does the country have beautiful beaches, it also offers world-class accommodation and exquisite cuisine. It’s no wonder that people from all over the world visit Indonesia every year to explore its scenic beauty.
One of the main reasons why so many people visit Indonesia is to learn about its culture. Tourists also fall victim to illegal gambling parties, which are hosted by mafioso groups. However, the government takes serious action against suspected gamblers. They can be charged with five years in prison and a fine.
The Indonesian government has long been aware of the prevalence of gambling in the country. In 2012, it banned lottery games. Although lottery was not illegal during the Dutch colonial era, it was not considered legal until after Indonesia’s independence.
The government also controls the lottery system. The system was initially regulated by the governor-general of the Dutch East Indies. It was initially operated as a cash market and entertainment service. It was later adapted into a lottery game.
In the southern regions of the country, the rules are less strict. However, the government takes serious action against gamblers in the north. People who lose their lives to gambling can be caned in front of everyone.
Aside from gambling, Indonesians also have other ways to earn money. One of them is through arisan, which is a savings association. In arisan, members contribute a fixed amount at each meeting. They receive the collected amount over a period of time.
