A recent meeting in the Ecuador city of Guayaqui could open the door for casino gaming to return to the country


ECUADOR LICENCES Ecuador Casinos - Back on the Cards?


Businessmen from the gambling sector have held a meeting with members from the Ecuadorian Committee on Human and Union Rights (CEDHUS) as well as representatives of the Central Government, to propose the reopening of casinos. Te meeting which was held in the city of Guayaqui was attended by the head of small businesses (MYPES) as well as other high ranking government officials in order to discuss the issue with foreign owners of gambling halls and casinos, as well as Francisco Zambrano Campuzano, President of CEDHUS.


Zambrano Campuzano, promoter of the meeting, said that with the exit of casinos in Ecuador, more than 100,000 direct and indirect employees were left jobless. He also went onto say that with the regulated and controlled return of gaming, state revenue would increase and the industry would provide jobs to more than 100,000 people. From a legal point of view, with the departure of casinos and gambling halls, the constitution as well as a number of local and international laws had been broken, he said.


Members of the gaming industry delivered a document at the meeting which reflected their willingness to return and reinvest in Ecuador. Tey also asked that delegates from the Ministry of Tourism, Labour, Health as well as the Interior be invited to attend the next working meeting.


Te news would signal a huge turnaround in Argentina


GLI accreditation as testing lab in Mendoza


GLI is the first independent test laboratory to be awarded certification accreditation in the Province of Mendoza, Argentina.


GLI’s Director of Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes said, “Continuing with our commitment to the regulatory entities, GLI prepared and submitted the petition for accreditation per the regulatory requirements as outlined by the jurisdiction.


“Having been granted accreditation, we are ready to receive submissions for the jurisdiction of Mendoza. We are very thankful to the Inspection and Legal Department of the Provincial


government policy. In September 2010 then President of Ecuador Rafael Correa announced that his government was seeking to ban casinos. Claiming that casinos in Ecuador had become hotbeds of corruption and money laundering Correa told local press that his administration would put the question before the Ecuadorian people as part of a referendum. If the Ecuadorian people agreed with the President’s views on the issue then all of the fifty five casinos and bingo halls in Ecuador would be closed down forthwith.


Almost four million Ecuadorians (47.7 per cent of the voters) voted that that they were in favour of such a move meaning that many skilled and experienced casinos workers, many of whom had been working in the industry for almost fifteen years were left jobless. It also meant that the government lost around US$20m in tax revenue per year.


Under previous legislation, casinos operating in Ecuador had to offer—in addition to slots—at least four different types of table gaming in five- star hotels and two to three types of table gaming in three- and four-star hotels, respectively. Tis was then changed in 2008 when the “Regulation of Casinos in the Tourism Law” was approved by President Correa. According to article 5 of this act casinos could in the future only be part of a “hotel de lujo” meaning in a five star hotel located in a tourist hot spot.


Institute of Games and Casinos for their guidance during the process and to the board of directors for approving our accreditation as we look forward to continuing collaboration with them in their regulatory efforts,” continued Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes.


GLI has been accredited for the certification of gaming devices by the Provincial Institute of Games and Casinos of the Province of Mendoza of Argentina since 2012. With the issuance of a new and updated regulation strengthening the requirements for test laboratories last year, GLI submitted its application to comply with the process and successfully achieved its accreditation under the new requirements.


With this renewed accreditation, GLI gives continuity to its certification services for the Mendoza jurisdiction.


Paraguay


Deputy Amado Florentín, a member of Te Authentic Liberal Radical Party (PLRA), has presented a new bill that would prohibit the operation of casinos in property owned by the state. Te Deputy expects that the new rule could be analysed by the full Chamber of Deputies within the next month and would amend Paraguay's gaming laws which date back to 1997. Te bill would then be referred to the Constitutional Affairs and Legislation Commission for review. Deputy Florentín said that Paraguayan rules when it comes to granting gaming licences were highly restrictive and added that the use of state property for casinos was not in keeping with with Paraguayan gaming laws.
