City hall to put squeeze on casinos

Guadalajara city hall wants to double the license fee for casinos to operate in the municipality but judging from the much heavier charges applied in some other parts of the country, local gambling impresarios won’t be overly concerned.

Guadalajara city councilors will vote to increase the cost of permits for the 11 casinos in the municipality from 420,000 to one million pesos in 2014.

The amount may not be as high as it seems. A casino permit fee in Puerto Vallarta is a whopping 8.3 million pesos a year.

Guadalajara councilors suggested the new fee was probably too low but fear casinos owners will take legal action if they approve an even higher increase.
