It seems that anticorruption groups in Jordan could beat the battle: in fact, officially gambling is illegal in Jordan. So, all gambling games (casinos and lotteries) are outlaw according to the Jordan laws.

However, the business isn’t died at all, yet. In fact, Jordan’s King Abdullah encouraged the prime minister Ma’arouf al-Bakhit to introduce new reforms in order to allow the project of the Dead Sea casino.
