Macau government officials are fulfilling a pledge made previously that they planned to bar children from entering their casinos.

A new draft law has been filed that places restrictions for access, stay and gambling in casinos. The Administration, according to news reports, had vowed previously to prevent anyone under the age of 21 from entering the casinos.

Also the new law specifies that any winnings gained by an underage player will be forfeited to the government. This is in addition to placing fines on both the violators and the respected properties.
