If you're hoping to try your luck on a slot machine, don't look to Mexico for your chance.
According to the Associated Press, Mexico has decided to ban slot machines and place a limit on casino licenses.
The ban, which went into effect on Thursday, was decided upon after Mexico found itself facing a number of scandals in connection with casinos and casino permits.
Under the new rules, permits have been decreased to 25 years (previously permits granted operators up to 40 years) and permit holders are no longer allowed to lease out their concessions to others.
