How would you compare it to Strike Sapphire Casino?

What language does a Korean/Japanese/Chinese gambling site use?  Is it multiple?

Coinbase for selling BTCs or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.
PM me with any questions on these sites!  Happy to help!

I am not sure whether online gambling is 100% legal in South Korea. I have friends there and they have told me that even porn sites are blocked there. A large number of people use VPN in South Korea. (I am not talking about the DPRK).

No surprise there lol, I think even Facebook is blocked (or google, I forget which one) but then again it's a popular games development company so I think it's legal to some extent.

@Kj I haven't player either but from a design perspective I think Satoshinori takes the cake.

Gotcha; is that an English based site?

I live in Korea and first off, other than some porn sites, I have never come across a blocked site, Facebook, google etc... I think you may be confused with China there.  As for the design it really looks Korean to me.  Korea is infamous for heavy use of Java which makes this site and many others impossible to use with a mac computer.  
As for the online gambling laws, I'm not sure there.  Gambling in general is illegal for Korea citizens, I'll check with some friends and see what the online policy is.
I guess this site is hoping the government will look the other way because they are using bitcoin and not Korea won.  I'll be shocked if it's legal.

OK... my friend was mostly referring about porn sites. Some of his sites and blogs were blocked by the authorities.

If gambling in general is illegal, then there is not much hope for online gambling as well.

Korea blocks porn? Time to bring democracy to the peninsula. We will present our evidence of your weapons of mass destruction to the UN next week.  Cheesy

There is a lot of activism by various American evangelical and baptists Christian organizations in South Korea. Some one-third of the population has been already converted. The Christian lobby is very powerful there. The porn-blockade was lobbied by them.

I grew up in a southern baptist church. It takes a long time to fully deprogram from that kind of upbringing. Making laws to keep religious people happy is a dangerous precedent to say the least.

Well... you can't win elections by alienating one-third of the population.  Grin They are a very vocal minority, and very powerful one as well. In democracy such instances are not that rare to find.
