Casino gambling and construction of proposed resorts that might go along with it are still delayed in Bermuda where a key Bermuda legislator is questioning the status of the territory’s four-year old plan to introduce the first-ever casino/resort.

In a July 6 Parliamentary session, Shadow Minister Michael Dunkley said “time has raced on and it seems as if nothing, or very little, has taken place.”

Dunkley also is concerned about a lack of progress in filling the vacant executive officer’s post for Bermuda’s Casino Gaming Commission.

Richard Schuetz, a casino industry expert, following two years in office, resigned from the post in August 2017 citing “personal reasons.” 

“If gaming is not set up properly, it will not work for the betterment of Bermuda, our people and the investors,” said Dunkley.
