News Reports: Genting to Abandon Ballot Initiative


(Orlando) – After spending nearly a $1 million over the past several months on pollsters and lawyers, Genting appears to have come up snake-eyes again in their efforts to build the biggest casino in the world in Florida.

“In seven months they spent what the average Floridian makes in about 25 years — and learned what we have said all along — that Florida voters don’t want economic havoc, addiction and crime that mega-casinos would bring,” said No Casinos President John Sowinski.  “Their polling data clearly showed that voters — like the Florida Legislature — would reject their casino legalization effort.”

No Casinos will remain vigilant — closely monitoring the Legislature’s committee on Gaming and informing voters of the economic, social and law enforcement costs of high-stakes casino gambling.
