Bangalore: India’s largest casino resort that is ventured in Daman and is spread across 10 acres with 60,000 square feet is expected to operate from 2014, said Jaydev Modi, Chairman of Delta Corp, reports Rediff.



Though Deltin owns many other casinos in India, the company operates the Daman project from Mumbai and Gujarat. The Deltin is just a three hours drive from Mumbai and is also in close proximity from major cities in Gujarat,” said Modi.



However, Deltin is going to be the first land-based casino in India, as there were only off-shore casinos in some places of Goa. Modi said that like Chinese, Indians are very passionate about gambling and India is one of the emerging markets for the same.



Infact Modi even confronted that, many state governments are coming forward with special laws to welcome casinos in their state, as they have got to know that casinos can be the biggest contributors to their states' kitties.

1: Casinos are definitely good for the local economy. Having lived in U.S it's quite evident to me that along with casinos other 'supporting' industries such as prostitution, drugs, money lending and vice also mushroom. The lax indian laws would suit such operators. The local government will be hard pressed to overcome the political / business interests. It's worth trying for sure. The idea is always good on paper, it's the implementation that matters.
