Sorry to burst Rep. Ron Stephens bubble but gambling is prohibited on Lake Lanier which is under federal jurisdiction and goverened by ER 1130-2-550
15 Nov 96. It would take considerable effort to change this regulation as it applys nationwide and is unlikely.

Jekyl is going to turn into another fancy novelty place which are everywhere. Why did they not leave it alone. It is one of a kind,or was. We will not be back after vacationing there for the past 20 years.

The cruise ships are not regulated like the gaming commissions regulate casino gambling on shore. Remember that the machines are computer controlled as to the payout ratio and our laws do not apply to ships of foreign registry.. In other words, save your money on the ships,stay out of the casinos and save it for a trip to the real thing at the Gulf Coast.
