British Army Claims It Has Eradicated Illegal Casinos From Its Corner of Cyprus


Southern Cyprus — the part of the island that is ethnically and politically Greek — enacted a bill to legalize casino gaming in 2015, creating one license to operate a single casino resort and a number of smaller satellite casinos.

Superintendent Dinos Petrou of the Sovereign Base Areas Police (SBA) said nine illegal casinos had been closed down following a four-year campaign against illicit gambling within the jurisdiction and beyond.


We have been working tirelessly for the past four years now to ensure that we close down all of these illegal casinos and today we are delighted to be able to confirm, that has now happened,” Petrou said.

The US Defense Department has been criticized for allowing slot machines on US overseas bases that rake in millions for the federal government, none of which goes to problem gambling support programs for veterans.
