You may never have heard of the county borough of Torfaen, for it is an area of Gwent in South Wales in the UK, and like many other places across Great Britain it is one that has had some rather archaic laws in place regarding land based casinos.
In fact, up until recently any casino operator that wanted to apply for a casino license there would not have been allowed to do so, for there was a ban in place forbidding them to even apply to build and open a casino, but that ban is about to end.
It will be at the end of January 2019 that casino operators will be able to apply for a casino license in Torfaen, as councillors have just voted to allow such applications to be presented to them, and each one they say is going to be considered on the merits of the application.
It is doubtful that there will be a huge number of applications to open a casino in the county borough of Torfaen, however, there could be a casino operator that is willing to do so, for the population is over 92,000 people, so there would be no shortage of potential customers.
