Government officials in Bermuda have confirmed that they could change gambling laws on the island, which might allow a national lottery and hotel casinos, according to the Bermuda Sun.
Ewart Brown, the premier of Bermuda, said the government
and the Bermuda Hotel Association are working with consultants to conduct a
study investigating the social and economic impact new laws could bring.
“I am well aware of the strong feelings about gaming that
are prevalent in the community,” Mr. Brown was quoted by the paper as
saying. “The aim of this feasibility study is to openly and fully address
all aspects of this issue so that we make decisions based on facts.”
