Lawmakers continue to challenge Ecuador's gambling ban with a new initiative now on the table.


ECUADOR CASINO LICENCES Lawmaker Wants Referendum on Casinos


Lawmaker Marco Vinicio Harb has proposed that the public be consulted if article 236 of Ecuador’s Criminal Code should be eliminated


Stiff legal penalties are currently in place when it comes to gambling. Article 236 of current rules establish that “the person who administers, puts into operation or establishes casinos, gambling halls, gambling houses or businesses dedicated to the carrying out of games of chance, will be sanctioned with a prison sentence of up to three years.”


In September 2010 then President of Ecuador Rafael Correa announced that his government was seeking to ban casinos as part of a referendum. Almost four million Ecuadorians (47.7 per cent of the voters) voted that that they were in favour of the ban practically ending the industry overnight.


Te new public consultation would ensure that gambling establishments would be “properly regulated by the Ecuadorian state and relevant laws”.


However attempts to relaunch the industry via a referendum have already failed. In October Te Constitutional Court of Ecuador (CC) announced that two local consultation initiatives on the return of casinos was unconstitutional and


argued that even if they did get the necessary votes they would be unenforceable as national laws would have to be changed. Tis was after the national Electoral Council of Ecuador (CNE) decided to approve the creation of a popular consultation on gaming in both the cities of Salinas, in the province of Santa Elena, and in Bahía de Caraquez, in the province of Manabí in 2018. Gaming would have been used as a way to generate much needed revenue after Bahía de Caraquez was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 2016. Te other was put forward by the mayor of Salinas, Daniel Cisneros. Te CC decided to unify both referendum requests for consideration.


Despite these setbacks momentum has been growing to allow for the return of casinos. In May a new project put forward by Mauricio Villacís, President of the Association of Ex- Workers for the casino secto, would allow for the reopening of all the casinos in Ecuador. According to Villacís the country is losing out on millions in tax revenue and “more than 20,000 jobs directly and indirectly linked to this activity, with an approximate investment of about US$400m.”


Venezuela Government opens new Crypto-run casino


Te Venezuelan government has authorised the operation of a casino at the Humbolt hotel in Caracas where all bets will be processed in petro, the country’s national digital currency. Te President, Nicolás Maduro, pointed out that all the funds raised will be allocated to social investment in areas such as education and health.


During a joint state radio and television broadcast, Maduro said he had authorised bets via petro in order to obtain additional resources.


Te new measure is the latest attempt related to the use of digital currency in order to boost the country’s beleaguered economy.


"I have authorized legal bets on petro. For example, in the hotel Humbolt there will be an international casino and everyone who wants to bet will bet via petro, all those resources will enter the State for health and education, in


convertible currency. You can come to bet, there will be offers, special prices. You buy your petro, you can buy it if you bring Yuan, if you bring yen, dollars, euros or any other crypto currency, buy your petros and make your lawful bets allowed by the state as covered by national laws,” Maduro said.


However the government did not offer many other details about the use of petro and other crypto currencies such as Bitcoins in the casino and left many other questions unanswered. Te Venezuelan government launched its digital coin in 2018, as a defence against U.S. sanctions that have cut off Venezuela from international capital markets. It is backed by the country’s oil reserves, the world’s largest. Te country remains in a deep economic crisis amid widespread corruption, a devalued currency and crippling sanctions by the U.S. and the EU.
