Javier Silvania, Curaçao’s minister of finance, has criticized what he calls “misinformation” regarding the country’s new gambling law. The National Ordinance for Games of Chance (LOK) was introduced to parliament in December, and if approved, will replace the existing National Ordinance on Offshore Games of Hazard (NOOGH) legislation. Silvania clarified two points in his statement: the importance of accurate information and the current licensing process under NOOGH. He pledged his support for the Curaçao Gaming Control Board during the transition period. The Critical Milestones document outlines the transition from NOOGH to LOK, with the final date for certain actions set for March 31, 2024. The GCB has renewed all gambling licenses in Curaçao, with renewals ceasing in January 2025.
