The operators of the 7 largest Gaming Lounge operations in Jamaica have announced the formation of the Jamaica Gaming Association (JGA).

Mr. Brian George President and CEO of Supreme Ventures Ltd was elected as Chairman of the Association and Mr. Adam Epstein CEO of Sizzling Slots as Secretary.

The primary aims and objectives of the Association are:

A) Work with the Betting Gaming & Lotteries Commission towards the practical implementation and oversight of new policies geared towards the enhancement of the integrity of the industry particularly in the areas of Anti Money Laundering (AML) and the requirements under the Proceeds of Crime (POCA) legislation.
B) Working with relevant bodies such as RISE Life Management Services to ensure the widest implementation of Responsible Gaming Principles and Practices.
C) Identify and promote policies which can stimulate the long term growth, innovation and reinvestment in the industry by its members.
D) Provide a platform for all operators in the Gaming Industry to have a coordinated voice on matters affecting the industry.

In commenting on the formation of the Association, Mr. Brian George stated that this initiative, which is long overdue, will give the industry a legitimate voice on policy and regulatory matters which affect the industry as a whole. Mr. George also indicated that the Association has already been in active dialogue with the BGLC and provided feedback on the planned introduction of the new Minimum Standards related to AML and POCA which the BGLC will be formalizing in the near future.
