Guam gambling bill ‘will not legalise casinos’

 

A  controversial gambling bill will not legalize casino gambling, poker machines and slot machines in Guam but would instead tax existing legal forms of gambling, the governor’s legal counsel has said. Guam Governor Eddie Calvo has been waiting for advice from his legal advisers before deciding whether to sign the bill into law. The bill will collect tax and licensing fees from bingo, lottery, cockfighting, carnival gaming and other legal forms of gambling.
