Bahamas Eye Internet Gambling
By staff
The Chairman of the Gaming Board for The Bahamas called for regulations that would stabilize the fast growing industry of Internet gambling. Gaming Board Chairman Kenyatta Gibson made this appeal as he officially opened The Sixth Annual International Symposium on Internet and Wireless Gambling Law and Management. He said that The Bahamas was excited to learn more about Internet Gambling, which it does not regulate. The Government is proposing new amendments to the Gaming Act, and there is a proposed challenge in the Supreme Court of the Bahamas to lift the prohibition of Bahamians playing in local casinos. 'But at the same time,' Mr. Gibson said, 'let there be no doubt that The Bahamas is poised and ready to take advantage of every opportunity and trend in the gaming industry.' The Bahamas congratulates its sister CARICOM member-state Antigua and Barbuda on the pace set in establishing its Internet Gaming Services, he said . The gold rush is on.
