Public Gaming's Regulatory News

Regulatory

Existing laws governing gambling in the nation were written in 1947, and were never changed to reflect the fact that gambling now takes place in the virtual world just as frequently as in brick-and-mortar casinos.   According to Mexican Gaming Commission President Fernando Zarate Salgado, the new laws took into consideration input from industry representatives, businesses, academics and even anti-gambling groups. If any major issues are found with the bill, there’s still time to work out the details. No specific details have been leaked, though it is expected that the  regulations should be friendlier to the gambling industry than those proposed in a draft seen last year.
