Accordingly, recently, many pupils, college students, teachers, and educational officials have been taking part in online gambling, violating the law and causing negative effects to themselves as well as their family and the society.

Therefore, the Department asks related agencies to boost the task of raising people’s awareness of avoiding any possible online gambling activities.

Simultaneously, educational institutes must cooperate with the local authorities to receive reports from residents regarding online gambling among pupils, students, teachers, and officials while regularly examining to timely address the issue.
