About 25 slot machines that were functioning illegally downtown Lima were closed recently by the Municipality of Lima, said Treasury Manager Mario Vargas. He added that also 60 Chinese machines were confiscated, working in conjunction with the Ministry of Commerce.
Vargas pointed out that action against illegal functioning of casinos and other gaming revenues will harden and intensify in order to protect the public, victim of unscrupulous casino operators.
However, the Treasury Manager warned about the warranty or precautionary measures administrators resort to as a way of obtaining the suspension of judiciary coactive processes. These measures prevent the Municipality’s intervention until the problem comes to a solution.
