Kangwon Land, the only casino in South Korea that allows local gamblers, says it is discontinuing credit card cash services at the property starting September 1, 2017.
Announced on Monday last week, the operator said the move is part of a bold policy shift to create a healthy gaming environment for casinos.
While short-term lending services, such as credit cards and cash loan services will be discontinued, deposit and withdrawal services within the scope of customers' deposits will remain unchanged, said the operator.
There are currently 22 cash depositors in and out of the Kangwon Land Casino.
