Venezuelan Casinos Commission kicks off Mission Zero Illegal Gambling - Friday 12th of August 2005

The Venezuelan National Casinos Commission (CNC), under the Ministry of Tourism, has joined efforts with the National Guard, the National Customs and Tax Administration Service (Seniat) and the Ministry of the Interior and Justice to undertake Mission Zero Illegal Gambling.

This special task covers checking those businesses with slot machines that have not been authorized or licensed by the organization, CNC head Dalila Monserratt said in a press release.

Recently, three businesses, including one restaurant and two horse race centers, were checked, resulting in seizure of 32 slot machines.

As reported by Monserratt, about 1,000 slot machines operate illegally. The official urged the owners of such businesses to refrain from infringing rules and regulations in order to prevent any penalties.

The Mission will cover the whole nation to remove gradually illegal gambling.
