Gambling Law Update

Government is taking a further look at the existing provisions of the entire Gambling Law and proposed changes to these, says Attorney General, Hon. Samuel Bulgin, QC.

Mr Bulgin explains that the Gambling (Amendments) Bill, 2018, sought to steeply increase penalties to make them more of a deterrent. As provisions of the law have remained unchanged for 54 years, the current penalties are woefully inadequate and fail to reflect the present ramifications of illegal gambling.

The Attorney General emphasises that the Gambling Law and its current provisions against illegal gambling remain in full effect in the Cayman Islands. He adds that the public will be updated once the review is concluded.
