Online casinos in Liberia

Legal status: legal, requires a licence

Online casino gambling is, at least in theory, legal in Liberia. Officially called the Republic of Liberia, the country is located in Western Africa, and is bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea and Ivory Coast, as well as the Atlantic Ocean. Liberia had been a colony of the American Colonization Society, and declared its independence in 1847, as the first among African nations. English, along with its local variations remains the official language of Liberia today.

Online casino gambling is officially legal in Liberia. In fact, Liberia strove to be among the first countries to legalise and regulate online casino gambling back in 1999. In 2000, the government signed an agreement with Starnet, which was supposed to provide the technical background for a state-backed online casino. However, no such online casino has been created to date.

Interestingly, the most recent Liberian gambling regulation issued by the National Lottery Authority, the body regulating gambling in the country makes no mention of online casino gambling. However, since 2015 it is officially mandatory for online gambling operators to obtain a licence; otherwise they can not offer their games to Liberian players legally. To date, there have been no reports of any online casino operators applying for a Liberian licence, nor are there any online casino sites based within the country.

Technically, in accordance with the Liberian laws, international online casino sites without a licence should not accept players from Liberia either. However, the local authorities appear rather lax in this question. International online casino sites are not blocked, and locals face no repercussions for playing in such online casinos. In fact, most international online casino sites welcome players from Liberia.

Land-based casinos in Liberia

While the legal status of online casino gambling in Liberia can be somewhat confusing, brick and mortar casinos are most definitely legal in the country. Liberian casinos are regulated by the Gaming Regulation of 2016, accepted by the National Lottery Authority, the entity supervising casino gambling in Liberia. The NLA also issues licences to Liberian casinos.

In accordance with the Gaming Regulation, all casinos must apply for and receive a casino licence in order to operate legally within the country. There is a multitude of prerequisites for obtaining such a licence: casinos may only be opened in approved locations, operators must pass the technical and financial requirements, and so on. Casino operators also have to pay the associated licensing fee and gambling tax. Casino licences in Liberia are only valid for one year, but may be renewed.

There are currently only two licensed  casinos in Liberia, the Oceano Casino and the Palm Spring Casino, both of which are located in the capital city, Monrovia. Since gaming machines are treated separately in the gaming regulation, there is also most likely a larger number of gaming parlours. The largest casino in Liberia is the Oceano Casino, with about 30 gaming machines as well as more than 20 gaming tables. Table games available include roulette, blackjack, Oasis Stud Poker and Hold’em Poker. The casino is part of the Mamba Hotel and is open daily from 8 pm.

 

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Liberia

Most forms of gambling are legal in Liberia, both in online and land-based form. In theory, both online and offline gambling operators would have to apply for a gambling licence from the National Lottery Authority. In practice, there is no evidence that online gambling operators could obtain gambling licences in Liberia. Sportsbetting and lotteries are, similarly to casinos, controlled by the NLA. Interestingly, the authority does not appear to operate it’s own national lottery or sportsbook, but supervises only the lawful operation of all gambling activities.

At one point, there had been an agreement that Starnet would provide the technical knowledge and background for the Liberian online sports betting scene. However, there appear to be no locally based online sports betting, or other online gambling companies in Liberia.

Fortunately, since online gambling in general is legal, locals are free to play on international online gambling sites instead. Most international online poker, online lottery and online sports betting sites welcome players from Liberia.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!

    Thanks for the blog! I have also a casino website in Liberia named Starbet Liberia. I will surely follow all the steps for my business. Thanks once again!

    1. Great, glad to be of some use. I will update this page about Liberia in about 2-3 months, as time permits, it’s somewhat outdated currently (the time of the last update is always at the bottom of each page, at “Last updated:”). Please bookmark the blog, or this page to be able to find it easier later, search engines are unreliable, the website sometimes does not show up in search at all, sometimes it’s on first page, very fickle, very unreliable.

      Good luck with your business.
