Jamaica has been a popular vacation destination for some time, and its about to get even hotter. The Tourism minister of Jamaica, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett announced that the country will open their first casino this year.

Three resorts are to be named for new casino building. Bartlett confirmed that due to the gathering interest in casino licensing, resorts are moving ahead with plans. If their negotiations go well with the government,  three licenses would be bestowed over the next three years.

Bartlett stated recently, “Jamaica will soon become a destination that offers casino gambling experience, rather than a casino destination. The operations will take place in Montego Bay, another at a development in Trelawny and the third in the Western end of the island.”

Jamaica already has luxury resorts that cater to high-roller types that would be in line to open Las Vegas style poker rooms and other casino gaming. Bartlett made it clear that the casinos would be operated in a controlled way and be integrated into the existing resorts simply as an added feature for visitors.

“Legislations for casino operation are completed, the regulations are now being done and members of the Commission, which was recently established, have already started their work.” He went on to say, “Applications for licenses to operate casinos are now being accepted.”

The lucky three resorts to get those licenses should prove to be the hottest destinations in Jamaica this year.
