Panama’s big-time gamblers head for the casinos instead of the racetrack

Friday, September 24, 2010


Panama’s gamblers definitely prefer casinos. Official figures show that about 70 percent of bets are made in the casinos.

In recent years, the racetrack, bingos and lottery have lost their appeal by comparison with the gambling tables and coin-slot machines.

The government’s statistics show that $690 million was spent in casinos in Panama in the first seven months of this year.
