    and here's me thinking Gaming means CounterStrike and Need for Speed

    If gambling is to be legalised in certain areas of Sri Lanka then how is it that there are gambling places and widely advertised CASINOS in Colombo and in some other areas in Sri Lanka. It should be neither legal or illegal. Even though I am not a gambler, if the majority wants, why not but those who preach "Dharmarajya" and "mathata thitha" cannot agree to this. The consequences that could follow would be disastrous with prostitution, drugs, liquor and various crimes.

    No clergy allowed please.

    Tim Tam Wednesday, 10 November 2010 07:46 AM

    mathata thitha..... but gambling........?

    Aro Wednesday, 10 November 2010 06:14 AM

    Sumal Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:14 AM

    Basically there is no entertainments in Sri Lanka to spend the evening or weekends. Sri Lankans need more fun.

    kumar Tuesday, 09 November 2010 04:51 PM

    Agree with you, terra and all others; gambling is bad but being a Budhist country, we must stop animal sacrifices, killing of cattle for meat and ban liquor sales. But we can allow booze in the casinos as well as beef for "bytes" and why not, a little bit of the "room service".

    Siri Lanka Tuesday, 09 November 2010 04:26 PM

    Budu Haamuduruwaneeee

    There are no thugs and hooligans in Vegas ,discipline is strictly enforced by the Mafia.They don't want to get a
    bad reputation to their gambling city. There are no rapes and murders ,in Vegas.
    Go and check it out your self.

    Nandimithra. Tuesday, 09 November 2010 03:25 PM

    Very little they say is true to Buddhism - it is called opportunism.

    legaltalk Tuesday, 09 November 2010 03:23 PM

    Sampath, that's because the poor sri lankans including children are already gambling away buying lottery tickets.

    casinos, betting centres and lottery tickets have been part and parcel of sri lankan culture for decades now. the gaming act is for the purpose of regulating these establishments and bringing in some order. gambling has been legal in sri lanka for a long time!

    DXB Tuesday, 09 November 2010 12:56 PM

    Will Sri Lanka Monkey congress (SLMC) vote in support of this bill ?

    sampath Tuesday, 09 November 2010 03:00 PM

    They should only allow foreignors and rich sri lankans to enter the casinos

    Ranjit Silva Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:45 PM

    Is gaming the resurrection of the most important for the resurrection of our country.

    Minister Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:39 PM

    So, then, what JHU said about its not going to be presented in the Parliament is not true?

    Porn Star Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:39 PM

    Why not forwarding a bill to the parliament "Leagalising the Prostitution" too.

    Dee Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:17 PM

    "Gaming Bill- Re-Mix" , thats funkey.

    pbj Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:11 PM

    Shovini Tuesday, 09 November 2010 01:03 PM

    Sarama & Gantaraya Tuesday, 09 November 2010 01:02 PM

    Gambling is bad, no matter how much revenue it generates.
