Hawaii makes another attempt at legalizing gambling

Hawaii is the latest state to legalize sports betting and poker. Representatives John Mizuno and Daniel Holt want to see Kalihi transformed into a hub for regulated gambling. They want companies to establish gambling operations in the state and not just take their profits back to other states. Eric Ford, Mizuno's gambling specialist, was sentenced to 20 months in prison for running an illegal gambling operation in Kona. He is not keen on letting ex-convicts get their hands on gambling ownership or businesses. Former Honolulu police Deputy Chief John McCarthy thinks people running such businesses should be held to the highest possible standards.

Lawmakers try new tactic to being legal gambling to Hawaii

Representatives John Mizuno and Daniel Holt are pushing a gambling bill. They want to open small privately-owned gambling parlors where patrons would play poker and place bets on sports. The money would go to law enforcement to crack down on illegal gambling and to gambling addiction programs. Eric Ford, who was sentenced to 20 months in prison for masterminding an illegal casino operation in Kona, is the expert on the proposal. He says the parlor owners would have to be local and have a 35-year residency in Hawaii. Retired Honolulu police deputy chief John McCarthy says it would increase social and criminal problems. Governor Josh Green is willing to consider the ideas.

Gambling bill coming, but what does that mean?

Hawaiian Representative John Mizuno is introducing a sports and card gaming bill tomorrow, Jan. 9. He wants to keep local money in the local economy. Hawai'i residents spend $400 to $800 million a year in Las Vegas. The bill would allow customers to enter sports book and cards rooms after they have registered with the premises and paid a daily fee. House Committee on Economic Development Chair Daniel Holt supports the bill. The legislation addresses social concerns about gambling. It will encourage people to stay in Hawai’i and keep their money here.

Ninth Island: The Las Vegas-Hawaii connection

Sam Boyd is credited with creating the Hawaiian interest in Las Vegas out of nothing. Sam Boyd's downtown California Hotel & Casino was near bankruptcy in the mid-1970s. He wanted to lure Southern Californians to downtown Las Las. He visited Hawaii and cultivated relationships with people there. They were buying all-inclusive vacation packages to Las Nevada. The California project was completed in 1975 at a cost of $10 million. It was located off the Strip. Las Angeles is called Hawaii's "Ninth Island" because of its laid-back lifestyle.

Strict Regulation, High Taxes: How Would A Casino Work In Hawaii?

Hawaii has considered many gambling proposals over the last three decades. The Legislature has ordered studies on all those forms of gambling. All the proposals failed. This year, several lawmakers are back with measures to allow a single casino in Waikiki and regulate online sports betting and online fantasy sports games. House Vice Speaker John Mizuno says the measures won't pass because 2022 is an election year. The House is up for reelection. Hawaii is one of two states that prohibit all forms. of gaming.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser sportswriter Stephen Tsai wrote a column about the differences between Hawaii and Las Vegas. He thinks Las Nevada is a better tourism destination than Hawaii. Tsia believes the public was hornswoggled into paying $750 million in room-tax money to help build $2 billion Allegiant Stadium.
