The Royal Gazette

Dr. Abarbanel has been speaking to politicians and counselors in Bermuda about preventative measures that intend to minimize the problem gambling that could arise when Bermuda’s first casino opens soon. According to Dr. Abarbanel, local counselors and others she has spoken to have responded positively about her efforts. Dr. Abarbanel hopes that a casino tax could provide the funding for resources to combat problem gambling and its societal costs.
