I've read the bill that was passed (https://www.bvibeacon.com/wp-conten...-Gaming-and-Betting-Control-Act-2020.pdf), but still cannot discern many of the specifics, or is that because the industry's presence is still in its gestation phase? For example, how many casinos will be licensed, and where (Tortola only, or VG as well), and what games will be allowed?

I realize that I'm inviting "the rumor mill" to weigh in, but has anyone heard any specifics?

GeorgeC1, it's indeed true, as per the link to the legislation that I posted at the thread's inception. Also: https://www.bvibeacon.com/gambling-law-17-others-take-effect/ and https://bvinews.com/is-bvi-prepared-for-gambling-laws-pitfalls-it-will-create-loan-sharks/. Thus, as to whether it's a good idea or not, that ship has sailed; I'm just trying to get the particulars.
