The government will ban all slot machine parlours and betting centres outside casino premises, Secretary for Economy and Finance Francis Tam Pak Yuen has reiterated.

“Our goal is to eliminate all slot parlours not situated in casinos,” Mr Tam told the Legislative Assembly.

He said the government’s intention was to impose a similar ban on betting centres outside casinos.

He said the purpose was to avert the adverse social effects of gaming by removing the temptation to gamble from residential areas.

Mr Tam did not say when the bans would be imposed.
