Mexican casinos have not caught on quite yet – a couple opened in 2006 but are no longer open and from our reports there are no current re-openings yet scheduled. It looked for a moment in 2006 like things were going to be worked out but with the restrictions put on casino gambling by the Mexican government in 1935 they seem to be stuck… for now. We hope that we will see legalized casinos throughout the country soon.
