If you gamble on online casinos, and have come across Indonesian players, you may have noticed many of them play the game Domino QQ.
What is Domino QQ, and why do so many Indonesian players play it online?
What is Domino QQ? — A game that was invented in Indonesia, Domino QQ is a mix of dominoes and poker. The game is played with dominoes or a set of special playing cards, with 28 dominoes or cards in a game.
Just like poker, bets are placed in a pot as the game is played out. The winner is the person with the highest score, and is the one eventually awarded the pot.
Why do so many Indonesians play Domino QQ online? — As the game was invented in Indonesia, it makes sense it would be popular with Indonesian gamblers.
Why so many play the game online, however, is mainly connected to two important things.
First, online gambling is easily accessible by most of Indonesia. It also has the same conveniences to them as it does to the rest of the world, in that it can be accessed at any time and from anywhere. As long as they have an Internet connection.
Probably the main reason why Indonesians play Domino QQ online in such large numbers, however, is due to gambling being banned in Indonesia.
In order to avoid being detected by the police if they play in underground games, therefore, many Indonesians now gamble on the Internet. Especially as Internet-based gambling has not yet been the victim of the police crackdown offline gambling has experienced.
Indonesian-owned sites — Finally, as there are several major online casinos owned (e.g. BandarQQ) by Indonesian companies, Indonesians can easily gamble in their own language. This makes gambling even easier for them as they do not have to struggle with casinos in languages they do not understand.
