UN COMITÉ LEGISLATIVO DE NUEVO MÉXICOHA pedido una enmienda de la legislación para reducir de cinco a tres el número de casinos concedidos a la Nación Navajo de Nuevo México.

LA SOCIEDADE DE JOGOS DE MACAU DESEA REABRIR el establecimiento de juego de su Macau Jockey Club, cerrado hace casi una década. El casino anterior del Jockey Club solo estaba operativo durante los días de carreras, en los que ofrecía varias mesas y tragaperras antes de su reubicación en el Grandview Hotel en 2004.


LAS AUTORIDADES REGULADORAS DEL JUEGO DE Macau consideran ahora la introducción de un tope en los ter- minales de juego electrónicos que acompañe a los límites sobre las mesas de juego en vivo con croupier. El Secretario de Economía y Finanzas, Francis Tam Pak Yuen, ha admitido públicamente que la limitación del crecimiento del juego tradi- cional de mesa a un crecimiento compuesto anual del 3% hasta finales de 2022 podría no ser suficiente.


LAS CIFRAS PUBLICADAS POR EL GOBIERNO panameño muestran que los ingresos generados por el juego entre noviembre de 2012 y diciembre de 2013 se elevaron a 2682,2 millones de dólares, lo que supone un incremento del 12,1%. En el mismo período, el sector registró ingresos que superan en cerca de 288,5 millones de dólares a los del año anterior.

NEW CASINO FOR MAR DEL PLATA


A new casino has opened in the tourist resort of Mar del Plata in Argentina after over three years in enforced hibernation


Argentina - New operations


A new casino located in the popular seaside resort of Mar del Plata has once more opened for busi- ness after an 18 year lapse. The casino located as part of the Hotel Sasso, will offer roulette and card games and will in the future also host major poker tournaments. Although the casino has been equipped and been ready to begin operations for over three years, it has until now remained closed due to political infighting between the national government and the government of the province of Buenos Aires. However, Governor of the province, Daniel Scioli, finally signed the casino licence in February, initially allowing the casino to run eight roulette wheels and four gaming tables. The new opening takes the number of casi- nos now operating in the city to four.


Head of the Casinos Employees (Association la Asociación de Empleados de Casinos) Jorge Baino stated: “This will undoubtedly be the most modern room and impressive casino in the province," and confirmed that the new casino will create 200 permanent and 300 temporary jobs.


The casino stands at 1,300sq.m., has parking facil- ities for 170 vehicles and will in the future also be allowed to offer craps tables and later slot machines, although it is unclear as yet exactly when these will be permitted or how many slot machines will be allowed.


Gaming in the province of Buenos Aires has been booming over recent years and despite the current economic climate in Argentina continues to grow with the 12 state run casinos reporting increased gaming revenues of more than 30 per cent year on year. The increase is down to the fact that the majority of Argentines can no longer afford to travel abroad for their holidays due to government restrictions.


In July 2012, the government banned people from buying dollars for the purpose of saving them and Argentines are only permitted $100 a day when travelling outside the country. Since August 2012 Argentines must pay a 15 per cent tax surcharge on all credit card transactions made abroad and this went up to 25 per cent in March 2013. Now in the summer holiday hotels in resorts such as Mar del Plata are recording record number of visitors with hotel bookings standing at above 90 per cent. 700,000 tourists visited Mar del Plata in December last year, a figure slightly higher than the same month in 2012.


Gaming board issues stronger player protection measures


CHILE Chile’s gaming body the Superintendence of Casinos (SCJ) has introduced a new measure which allows gamblers who are worried that they may have a gambling problem to voluntarily exclude themselves from casi- nos. The Gaming Control Board of the Superintendence of Casinos has exclusive powers to award, reject, renew and revoke operat- ing permits for casinos in the country and licenses for gam- bling and associated services.


Although in Chile no formal stud-


ies have been carried out on the issue of pathological gambling, worldwide prevalence studies estimate that anywhere from less than 1 per cent to 2 per cent of the adult population suffers from gambling addiction. The new measures were agreed upon after the SJC submitted its proposals for public debate and were developed after consulting a number of private and civil inter- est groups including the Chilean Association of Casinos and Games (AACI) and the Association of Players in Therapy (AJUTER ).


The new rules recognise that family plays a central part in the lives of those who suffer from gambling addiction not only in its detection, but also in its preven- tion, treatment and rehabilita- tion. Consequently, the new rules state that another family mem- ber must also sign the form of voluntary self-exclusion as well as the applicant.


Should the person afflicted with gambling addiction try to re enter a casino their co applicant will be contacted by casino staff.


Self exclusions are indefinite, but may be revoked if the applicant and the family member both sign the form revoking the self exclu- sion measures. Operators are also obliged to block gaming cards of those who have exclud- ed themselves from casinos and must also refrain from sending out information regarding tour- naments, special events and pro- motions. Casinos must also remove the details of those who have been self excluded from marketing databases.
