Gaming Authority issues licences

The Gaming Authority has issued a premises licence to Georgetown Investment and Management Services Inc for the establishment of a casino and an operator’s licence to Princess Hotel Casino, Guyana in order to facilitate the operations of a casino.

The Ministry of Home Affairs in making the announcement on Friday stated that both applicants had complied with all the obligations enshrined in the regulations of the Gambling Prevention Amendment Act and were invited by the Gaming Authority to receive the two licences, the Government Information Agency (GINA) reported.

Present at the brief ceremony were members of the Gaming Authority, a representative of the Georgetown Investment and Management Inc and Princess Hotel Casino, Guyana as well as a representative of Buddy’s International Hotel.

According to the Gaming Authority, contrary to a report in Stabroek News on January 29, a casino premises licence is granted only to a new hotel or resort complex with a minimum of 150 rooms allocated for accommodation, GINA stated.
