The Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) in Jamaica is seeking feedback from the public regarding proposed guidelines for advertising and marketing of gambling and related products in the country. 

To make it easy for people to participate, the BGLC has created an electronic survey accessible at www.bglcconsultation.com. The survey will be open for input until December 1, 2023. In addition, there will be an in-person session held at the Terra Nova All Suite Hotel in Kingston, where stakeholders are invited to share their perspectives on the proposed guidelines.

Wendy Robertson, the Manager of Corporate Affairs and Communication at BGLC, advises people to visit the consultation summary and click on the form that leads directly to the e-survey.

The goal of the proposed guidelines is to strike a balance between promoting responsible gambling and mitigating potential negative impacts of gambling-related advertising.

These guidelines are in line with the BGLC’s mandate to protect consumers and establish a fair and regulated gambling environment in the country.

This public consultation follows significant efforts in Jamaica’s gambling sector, including discussions on legalizing and regulating online gambling. The government aims to take advantage of technological advancements while implementing measures to prevent illegal activities and ensure compliance with regulations.

Additionally, there have been developments in the country’s casino gaming sector, with discussions on amendments to the Casino Gaming Act in 2021 to promote economic growth through large-scale investments.
