#JamaicaGleaner #Gambling #BGLC #BettingGamingLotteriesCommission OCTOBER 6, 2022: Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) Executive Director Vitus Evans is batting for tougher sentences for unregulated operators in the gaming industry, arguing that judges have been too soft. Evans said that because of this, the enforcement arm of the BGLC has had to bypass those at the bottom of the illegal gaming chain in pursuit of “the big fish”. However, that quest is yet to yield any result as major players are most times informed of investigations and are able to shutter activities beforehand.
