The Hawaiian Islands tucked away in the centre of the Pacific Ocean, were a result of a number of volcanic eruptions on the sea bed which later surfaced above the ocean and then formed many islands. Some of these islands i.e. ‘kauai’ are so green and full of blossoms which gave the island a picturesque and green look! These islands form a chain across the pacific for thousands of miles and are indeed wonders of the world in their own unique way, and have become part of the United States in 1959.
The islands are thinly populated and most of the people seen out there are largely visitors, and apart from enjoying the scenic view of the islands, the food and the colour which is so much a part of Hawaii. The islands don’t permit public betting as they are of the opinion that games are for fun and should be played for fun and not money!
However, this is not to be misconstrued that gambling in Hawaii is not available. In fact Texas Hold’em poker and Bingo have become increasingly popular with the locals, and they are now thrusting towards legalize gambling, given the fact that nearly 60% of the state’s revenue comes from those visitors touring the islands. With the arrival of so many cruise ships there are also possibilities that ‘on board casinos’ could be opened up to both tourists and the locals.
If gambling in Hawaii gets legalized then the tourist traffic would also increase and the islands would have the potential to grow their income and open luxurious casinos, as there is no shortage of experienced casino operators who are waiting with bated breath to open casinos either as part of a hotel or resort and enjoy the returns.
However, Hawaiians have the chance of playing their favorite table and slot games from the comfort of their home until such time that gambling goes public!
