Nicaragua to regulate casinos under law that awaited nine years for approval

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Nicaraguan legislators approved a law to regulate casinos, gambling and slot machines, under a bill that was originally presented nine years ago.

Sixty-five of 68 legislators approved the new law after a three year debate. None opposed it.

The president of the legislature’s economic commission said that the new law would considerably boost the state’s coffers.
