SMS lottery will continue to exist

Premier AsjesWILLEMSTAD – The sales of lottery through the SMS system will continue to exist. The Government is working to make this legally possible. This is according to the Prime Minister of Curacao, Ivar Asjes during the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers.

Earlier, the Prime Minister said that this form of lottery was illegal and that it will be prohibited starting November 1 of this year. Reason for the ban was that the lottery was easy accessible to minors. The former Pueblo Soberano leader, Helmin Wiels was a fierce opponent of this form of lottery.

The Prime Minister was not able to provide much information. He couldn’t say how an adjustment of the law would remedy the problem or whether the ban will be lifted on November 1.
