Media sources are reporting that Barbados’ moratorium on casino gambling could be coming to an end. The government hopes that allowing casino gambling may slow the erosion of personal income levels. Opposition from various religious groups will surely surface. Supporters say that adhering to proper security measures would limit many of the potentially harmful impacts of the gaming facilities. Barbados is closely watching Jamaica as they finalize plans to allow casinos, and will use Jamaica’s progress to push forward their plans for legalized casinos.
