Bahamas to debate online gaming

Bahamas to debate online gaming

The Bahamas, well known for its paradise-like beaches, natural beauty and tourist friendly industry, also has a blooming land-based casino industry. But the Bahamas are also known for its violent storms which keep tourists away for months at a time and generate millions of dollars in losses.

This is one of the reasons why a group of local merchants and tourist industry professionals are trying to push for a bill to introduce online gambling to the island. The idea is to offset the losses experienced by the devastating storms with the income generated by the taxation of online gaming revenue. The proposal has been met with enthusiasm by interest groups in the industry.
