Cruz seeks to ban Guam casino cafes

 

Benjamin Cruz, vice speaker of the Guam legislature, asked the island’s attorney general to review his draft bill to prohibit casino cafes as Guam Sweepstakes Corp., a subsidiary of PhilWeb Corp. prepares to open a second location. The cafes give customers the chance to play games such as blackjack and keno to acquire points that can be converted into sweepstakes entries, which Cruz argued represents illegal gambling.
