    is online poker ok in hong kong?

    I like to play online poker now and then and someone (who is not a trusted source!) told me its not allowed in hong kong.

    Can anyone tell me if this is true?

    Another source tells me it's fine and he and many others do it. (any poker player is not an entirely trusted source lol)

    Being a public forum, if it is indeed wrong to play online poker in hk. Please tell me do any of your *friends* do it anyway, and have there been any problems?

    only mark 6(lottery), horse race betting and soccer betting are the legal forms of gambling in HK.

    Online gambling is illegal in HK unless it is just for fun and no money involve.
