Editor's Comment: The gambling industry in Panama continues to grow. When I first got to Panama back in 1987 all of the casinos were small, dank, smoke filled, well worn, owned and operated by the government. They were all privatized during the administration of Ernesto Perez Balladares (1994-1999). Now most of the larger casinos are practically brand new, large, modern, and making money hand over fist. Panama can't rival Las Vegas, but casinos and gambling are an attraction that many enjoy while visiting the Republic of Panama. I like to play in Poker tournaments every now and then, and I like to play a little recreational Blackjack, when I can afford it.
