If you are as interested in online gambling as we are, you’ll surely like our today’s guest – Chanisa Mongkhonkay. Chanisa is a website manager at Thailand CasinoHex, a place where users can learn insight into gaming, how to gamble, find reliable online casinos, and benefit from lots of daily tips and strategies. Hello, Chanisa, and thanks for joining us today. Can you tell our readers more about CasinoHEX?
Casino HEX is a website that engages gambling experts from all over the world. Our goal is to provide users with a safe and fun environment and educate them on everything related to gambling. We have websites that target specific countries and locations to give users the most recent and updated information. For example, Canada, South Africa, and New Zealand.
Thai CasinoHEX has been operating since 2019 and helps players to understand local legislation, learn how to play different games, and be able to find secure and reliable online casinos. Our website is useful both for beginners and experienced gamblers because we process lots of information and news, and share the most important facts and details.
What’s your role as a website manager?
The website manager position may sound too general. And it surely is! (laughs) Every day I face lots of challenges and have an opportunity to communicate with people from all over the world who share the same passions: gambling, IT, and much more. I am responsible for creating content for Thai Casino HEX, so many guidelines and reviews that you see on the platform are written by me. I also search for new brands and software developers, read reviews and comments, and keep abreast to share the most recent news.
Plus, I regularly test our website and its pages to make sure that it is user-friendly and convenient. You know, CasinoHEX is not a regular international company. We are more like a family, so love helping each other and eagerly share tips and advice if we see that something can be improved.
Sounds rather challenging. Where do you find the time and energy?
Well, the answer is rather simple: I just love what I do. For more than 8 years I have been engaged in gambling. First, as a player and then as a manager and content creator. I am sure that my experience, skills, and background can be rather useful. And receiving positive and thankful messages motivates me to do more.
Is there anything that makes Thai gamblers different?
Thanks to globalization and Internet development, the borders are quickly erasing and there are not so many differences between players from America, Asia, or Africa. They simply want to have fun, escape boredom, and try to win some money. There are both careful and risky Thai gamblers, those who prefer slots and table games. The main distinguishing feature is that they prefer traditional themes, so will most likely choose an Asian-themed title.
What is the current situation with gambling in Thailand?
According to the Gambling Act 1935, gambling, apart from the government-run lottery and horse racing, is illegal. From time to time, the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society together with other institutions cooperates to shut down land-based and online casinos. If a bettor is caught, they might pay a fine. However, no one will break into your house just because they think you are gambling. If you play at online casinos from home without telling everyone about it, you won’t get yourself into trouble.
Do you think the legislation will change one day?
More than 60% of locals gamble on a regular basis, so the market is very dynamic and continues to grow. We have already witnessed some shifts and there are a few hints that the government will have to soften the laws to keep up with the times and tendencies.
In an attempt to reduce crime, the Thai government is trying to shut down access to online casinos but there are lots of ways how locals can play at gambling sites without any restrictions. That is why we are sure that with time the situation might change and local players will have more freedom.
What are the most popular games among Thai players?
As I have already mentioned, local gamblers have rather diverse tastes, so it is difficult to name a particular game that predominates. However, unlike European and American players, Thai gamblers will more likely choose Hi-Lo, blackjack, baccarat, and roulette. The popularity of slots is also growing not only because there are thousands of them on the market but also because it’s possible to choose themed and branded slots, and obtain lots of promotions including free spins. Thai players also like sports gambling which already has a big share of the market.
Are there any tips and tricks you could share with the readers?
You know, the first and the most important reason for starting working for CasinoHEX was sharing my experience and knowledge with others. That is why I can talk about gambling tips and tricks for hours. I know that our interview time is limited, so will share the most important issues.
First of all, you should always play responsibly. Yes, gambling is fun and entertaining but you need to manage your bankroll wisely and know when to leave the table not to lose more than you can afford. Luckily, many casinos support responsible gambling measures, such as self-exclusion and setting time limits.
Another piece of advice is to pick only trustworthy and licensed casinos. Thus, you can be sure that your money and personal information won’t be lost or stolen, and that the games are not rigged. At CasinoHEX, we review gambling sites and regularly publish lists of the best platforms. On our website, you can also get familiar with detailed descriptions of different games and strategies to improve your gambling.
Thank you, Chanisa, for such an interesting interview. We are sure that our readers have learned a lot!
Thanks for inviting me. Hope I was helpful and dispelled some myths concerning gambling.
