Churches: Bermuda Casino Boat Plan Gambles with Island's Future - Tuesday 12th of April 2005

A coalition of churches including the AME has hit out at plans for croupier training and for a casino boat moored off Bermuda.

"Spokesman Rev Harold Lambe said churches were dismayed by the direct or indirect promotion of gambling in Bermuda which he said was illegal.

"Last week The Royal Gazette reported how a centre had been set up for croupier training by the owners of the Spinning Wheel while the Corinthian, now moored in St. George's, might soon be used for a casino.

"...The 196-foot luxury Corinthian made headlines early last year when a local company, Corinthian Ltd. announced its plans to set up and operate the ship as a casino off Bermuda's coast.

"Gamblers would be able to use the casino once it sailed into international waters 12 miles off Bermuda
