In just six months, Samoa will have its first casino.

Two casino licences have been granted, one to a large Samoan resort, Aggie Grey’s, and another to a Chinese company called ETG.

Authorities say the casinos will mean more jobs for local people and more tourism dollars.

But local Churches say Samoans with little money to lose will gamble it away.

Cathy Harper reports.

Presenter: Cathy Harper

Speaker: The chief executive of Samoa’s Gambling Control Authority, Robbie Kearney
