(Mexico).- Armando García Méndez, coordinator of the Sub commission of Games and Draws of the Chamber of Representatives, informed that the games and draws bill is ready. It has fines from us$ 14,650 to us$ 219,700, or the total closure of illegal gambling venues.


e commented that he hopes the initiative to be presented before the ending of the period of ordinary sessions, in which it will be established the prohibition of slots in drugstores and shops.

He affirmed that, in all the centres, betting machines should be connected to a unique central system, where the fiscal issue would be controlled, as well as players and people with gambling problems, because it could be identified how much they bet and win, and this way, money laundering could be avoided. Besides, they search for a regulation to obtain more income for the state.

He said that another proposal is to ban slots, and handle the cash flow via cards or tickets, which would allow the control of casinos, and how much do they have to pay in prizes and taxes, as well as to identify people with gambling problems.
