Playing Online Poker from Vietnam

When traveling to Vietnam, some people are skeptical and under the dilemma that whether they will be able to play online poker from Vietnam. This could well be largely due to the guidelines imposed by the Vietnamese government forbidding native citizens from gambling. The hysteria continues for Online Poker lovers as Vietnam doesn’t have any legal, per se, online poker arrangements or services and to top it all if you are using any foreign based sites, it will be considered a criminal offense in Vietnam. But that’s like looking at the glass half filled or half empty as there is always a work around to beat the system.

Some people will say it is easier said than done, but in this case it is easier done than said. You would not have any difficulty in getting hold of a proper reliable internet connection as there are a lot of cafes offering wireless/dsl internet that is steadfast and dependable. One thing that you must definitely avoid is local joint as there are a lot of restrictions and government sanctioned blockages, but all tourist areas are free from blockages and you should not have any difficulty getting your hands on one of your favorite online poker sites like Natural8. Usually most of the best poker US sites accept players from Vietnam.

Some of the frequently visited poker sites in Vietnam include Poker Stars, Full Tilt, Unibet Poker, Poker Mira, Party Poker, Winner Poker, Virgin Poker, Everest Poker, Bet365 Poker, Betway Poker, Betvictor Poker and the list goes on. If you are still paranoid and in two minds but would definitely want to catch up on your favorite website without being getting under the scanner of the officials, you should try using a VPN and make sure you encrypt your data packets. However, that wouldn’t be required if you are looking forward to playing poker in Vietnam. Just relax and enjoy your favorite game.
