Mr Dunch stated: “The BCGC is pleased to announce this landmark event in working to introduce the casino product into a Bermuda integrated resort.”

“We feel that this is an important step towards realizing the public policy goals of the Casino Act, by increasing employment and investment in Bermuda, as well as enhancing the tourism product.”

    Who is going to be hired to run the casino and do they have any ties to current and former MPs? We need to be vigilent bermuda.

      Exactly why no casino application should be considered until a special commission of inquiry into the JETGATE DEBACLE IS CARRIED OUT .

      Allow the OBA / UBP party to first come clean on the issue .

      Encourage Thad Hollis to make public his findings .

      Before Bermuda allows casino gambling , we must start off on the right foot .

      Also , since HP has the money to start up , they must have saved enough cash reserve to give up the five year tax concessions granted by the former PLP government …

      We need to understand as a country going forward , as to why Craig Cannonier resign as premier !!

    The PLP are already getting things rolling with Caisnos. Keep up the good work.

      No doubt. Cancelled that meeting but that won’t deter them.

    • no love says:

      LOL! Sure all happened in a week. Entire application was created in 3 days. Keep drinking that special tea. That tea keeps your green glasses on and helps to avoid the facts mate!

    We don’t even have regulations in place and we are taking applications? Time to stop this OBA appointed Commission in its tracks and get our people in play. Let’s give our entrepreneurs in Bermuda a chance to make a good living in this new industry. The only jobs we are seeing are in the OBA appointed Commission and I am sure Michael Fahy is looking for a J.O.B. now!

    Rise up PLP! Lead us forward.

    did you read the article? This has nothing to do with PLP.

    • George says:

      I beg to differ. The urgency of getting through a partially completed application (yes read the article the application is not complete) has a lot to do with the PLP winning the election.
      July 21 was not a drop dead date for submission.

      • Double S says:

        Give it a rest…this has nothing to do with the PLP…they just had their first cabinet meeting today.

        And let’s not forget the PLP generally voted AGAINST the gaming legislation.

        Wonder if they were able to get things sorted with their now infamous trip…gaming gate anyone?

  5. Coffee says:

    Proceed with great caution …

    Give it to them AFTER , they build a purpose built structure at the Carlyle Beach property ….

    I beg this government not to allow this type of business mixing with pleasure anywhere near City Hall
