Recently, the authorities of North Vancouver are considering the possibility of triggering a green signal for the establishment of a new casino in the region. This will lead to the further expansion of the Canadian gambling Industry as one of the most revenue-driven one.
It is precisely defined as a "gaming center" which will be located at Lower Lonsdale's Shipyards District.
Gambling activities have been prohibited in the North Vancouver for more than twenty years. The success of building the casino would start a new era in the history of the place. The result of the open polling by the members of the City Council made it clear that establishing slot machines in the area is not that distant anymore.
The question for the legalization of the gambling activities is not new. In 2013 also, Playtime Gaming had asked for the permission to establish slot machines in one of the fast developing areas Shipyards District.
According to media reports, the proposal from Playtime Gaming included not only the expansion of the retail sector but also the burgeoning of hotel and resort accommodations. A public theatre and green open spaces along with an underground parking is also included in the proposal as a part of the entertainment and cultural facilities. The inclusions of the slot machines are also suggested.
Though the result is still uncertain, still it seems like Playtime Gaming is moving closer to complete its project.
With six thriving community gaming centers, Playtime Gaming is regarded as the company with leading positions in the gambling sector of British Columbia. Their casinos are different from the traditional brick and mortar ones as they feature slot machines and electronic blackjack only.
The advantages and disadvantages of expanding the gambling sector would be discussed by the local officials.
The impact of the gambling activities on particularly economy and communities will be reviewed.
It was announced that many questions are there which needs to be discussed before finalizing the decision.
Economy benefits, the diversification of the gaming centre and the source of getting decent revenue are some of them. However, one major concern also includes that gambling legislation can also increase criminal occurrences and complicate several social issues.
Majority of the local authorities support the legislation and the officials of North Vancouver do not underestimate the benefits that the gambling legislation would bring to the region. Now, it depends on time whether the gambling sector of North Vancouver is going to be expanded or not.
