Restricted Casinos in Jordan

In Jordan, they want to increase the attractiveness of the country for foreign tourists and are considering the possibility of lifting the ban on games in the casino. The vice-prime minister of Jordan Ali Abu-Ragheb is lobbying the gambling bill.

Vice-Prime Minister of Jordan Ali Abu al-Ragheb presented a bill that considers the possibility of licensing a casino in the city of Aqaba. Aqaba is a large port city that is located near the Red Sea. Also it is a question of opening of gambling establishments in other locations. For the casino a special gambling zone will be create, where local citizens will not have access. Show more

The application for legalization came from Ali Abu-Rageba at a government seminar on “Investments in Jordan, Chances and Challenges”, which was held on February 13, 2016. The deputy head of government expressed confidence that such a stimulus would help improve the situation with investments in the kingdom.

The city of Aqaba is located near the Israeli recreation zone of Eilat, where the opening of four gambling establishments was discussed the day before. Now in both countries, casinos are banned, since the ruling parties are guided by a conservative religious world view.

The last attempt to legalize gambling in the kingdom was made in 2007. Then, Prime Minister Maruf al-Bahit signed an agreement with the British company Oasis Holding Investment. But many residents of Jordan found such an agreement rather ambivalent. His terms presupposed the operation of a gambling operator in the country for 50 years, as well as state reimbursements of $ 1.4 billion, in the event of an unsuccessful outcome of the transaction. As the government concealed the terms of the new gambling policy, soon the streets of the main cities of Jordan were filled with protesters, and the government accused the entire Minister of Tourism.
