House: Casino legislation to be amended

The Singapore model for casino gaming adopted by the Bermuda Government in the 2014 Act will be amended to suit the island, the House of Assembly heard this morning.

The updates came from Shawn Crockwell, the Minister of Tourism Development and Transport.

Mr Crockwell said the Casino Gaming Commission is submitting suggestions to make the legislation more appropriate to the “social, cultural and economic realities of Bermuda”.

The amendments will be tabled “as expeditiously as possible”, he said.
