What is Tembak Ikan gambling? It is an Indonesian river which flows through Borneo and the mainland of Sumatra. The name Borneo came about because early man would have used the currents to go from the inland to the ocean. They would have carried with them whatever they could carry, including plants. This would have been one way of crossing the sea.
The banks of the river were often used as a place for trading, farming and other uses. Gambling also became an important part of these activities. This brought in a lot of local people who would visit the many temples, meeting their friends and fellow travellers. Temples are the major source of income for many in Borneo and this led to the establishment of a number of casinos in Borneo.
The demand for more gambling was so great that it prompted the government to step in and interfere. The aim was to regulate the river to ensure that there were enough food and fishing for the people. Initially the Chinese were the biggest users of this natural resource. These people brought with them their own methods of gambling including the world’s oldest known gambling table. It was called the Hong Kong table.
