In Mexico, the Laredo authorities are considering authorizing the installation of slot machines in canteens and bars. A maximum limit of five slot machines per site would be established. For final approval, this proposal would have to be passed to the Cabildo.
It has not yet been possible to determine what would be the advantages and disadvantages of installing slot machines in these gaming venues in order to establish the viability of the project.
The prizes of these slot machines would not be exceeding $ 5 and also there would be more prizes as vouchers to exchange for products.
The legal impact that these free slot machines could have will be studied. In Laredo, 40 legally declared slot machines are operating.
In what has to do with the cost to obtain permission to operate slot machines it has registered an increase for those who want to incorporate these games of chance.
