Guam - The Mayor's Council of Guam is working out the details to have casino-type gambling during this year's Liberation Carnival. The governor signed an executive order giving the Council the authority to manage Liberation activities.

And according to executive director Angel Sablan, this means they can have gambling if they choose to. Sablan adds they plan to have casino games such as dice, baccarat and poker to name few. Sablan says it's been eight years since they had casino games at the carnival.

He says during that time they generated nearly $400,000, which went to a good cause. He told KUAM News, "It will go to charitable causes, whether or not economically there will be as much activity in this casino as in 2002 or years before we don't know, but we certainly know that in village fiestas and even now you have social gambling going on in different village and homes, so people have been asking whether we can do this."

Sablan adds opening bids for vendors will begin on this Friday at 6:01pm at the Mayors Council's Office in Hagatna.
