Israel Online Casinos Could Be Developed

10 December 2013

Israeli regulators are starting to open up to the idea of allowing online and land based casinos in the state in the near future. Discussions about the legalization of the casino industry in Israel came up after Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval explained to Israeli politicians that the country has huge potential to become a gaming hub, which will boost tourism considerably. Earlier this year, Sandoval discussed to Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about water conservation and various industries, but also brought up the proposal regarding the expansion of online and land-based gambling.

When it comes to the location of the possible upcoming brick-and-mortar casinos, Israeli news revealed that a potential site where casinos could be developed is a town found in the Negev Desert, only two hours away from Tel Aviv. The Mitzpe Ramon area is considered one of the most appropriate locations where operators could start multiple land based casinos in Israel, since the town is close to a crater-like geological form considered unique on Earth. Furthermore, the town already houses a luxury hotel that can host individuals who would gamble in the town’s casinos. Nevada representatives also pointed out that an Israel gaming hub would be similar to Las Vegas, especially since 60 percent of this state is occupied by the Negev Desert, which is similar to Nevada’s desert landforms. Israeli officials said they believe that they could benefit from the know-how of Las Vegas operators when it comes to developing casinos.

Despite the fact that at this point in time, Israel has many political parties that have different opinions about operators starting land based casinos in the state, the development of the gaming industry would be a great opportunity for regulators to boost tourism and create more jobs. On the other hand, there are various religious groups that are against casinos, so there is nothing left to do but wait and see what politicians will decide in the years to come.
