Gaming Authority rejects Sleepin Casino application


The Guyana Gaming Authority has rejected the application by Sleepin International Hotel and Casino Inc for a Casino Operator’s License and a Casino Premises License. The Gaming Authority in a release today cited the organization’s failure to provide the Authority with documents evidencing its financial soundness and capability, one of the critical criteria for the granting of such licenses. 

The Gaming Authority said that having received and thoroughly considered the application it unanimously found no evidence upon which it could arrive at a determination that Sleepin International Hotel & Casino Inc. qualifies for the issuance of the licenses .

The release further stated that this deficiency is a grave defect in the applications, which necessitates a refusal of the applications for a Casino Operator’s License and a Casino Premises License, since the regulations Section 29 (a) (1) (c) speak clearly and specifically to “the financial soundness and financial capability of the applicant.”
