Antigua and Barbuda Casino Guide

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Antigua and Barbuda (the twin islands are part of the Commonwealth of Nations, and formerly they were part of the British Empire, independent only since 1981). Find out which are the best casinos and online casino sites in Antigua and Barbuda, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

 

Antigua and Barbuda online casinos

Legal status: legal since 1994, operators need a license

 

Online casinos are legal in Antigua and Barbuda since 1994. The main piece of gambling legislation regulating online gambling is the Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007*. Those companies who wish to operate any form of gambling activities in or from the islands must apply for a gambling licence.

Actually, the country was one of the world’s largest online gambling licensing hubs between 1994 and 2003, with 93 licensed online gambling companies operating out of the country. And it was the first country to issue online gambling licenses (according to the Free Trade and Processing Zone Act 1994**, as a reference, in 1995, only 0.04% of the world’s population had access to the internet in their home***, they were really ahead of their time, and it paid off). The small island country was an important and defining chess piece of the early 2000s online gambling industry.  The sector, at its peak, employed over 4000 people, and managed hundreds of licensed wagering platforms of all kind (according to Colin Murdoch, ambassador, and secretary for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Immigration, you can see the interview in the video below), which is quite significant considering that the population off the country is only around 92 K people, this means that as much as 5% of the entire population worked in the online gambling industry.

However, nowadays the online gambling licensing sector is only a shadow of its former self and online casinos switched to offshore tax havens for even better tax rates, and to distance themselves from the country after the US attack. Barely any online gambling companies are licensed here (probably less than 10, but for years now, The Directorate of Offshore Gaming doesn’t list an official number or list of licensed online casinos, companies).

The following video provides a short summary of this gambling conflict with the USA, which led to the demise of the Antigua and Barbuda online gambling sector:

 

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Antigua and Barbuda?

Yes, the laws discussed here only apply to residents of the country, if you are a tourist (or a non-citizen expat, or illegal), you can play online freely while enjoying your vacation.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Antigua and Barbuda: The Directorate of Offshore Gaming is the licensing and regulatory body, you have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of online gambling business in the country. They issue two types of gambling licenses: the Interactive Wagering (sports betting, betting, online sports books), and the Interactive Gambling (online casino, lottery, keno, bingo, casino, slot hall) licenses, contact them if you wish to set up a gambling or online gambling business in the country.

 

In order to be eligible for an online casino licence (interactive gambling licence) you will need:

  • To fill out a Personal Information Form. You, the owner, each business partner, CEO, executives, and each shareholder with 5% or greater controlling interest in the company must fill out one (you can find it on their website).
  • A completed Business Entity Identification Form (you can find it on their website). The organization needs to include details about their financial and litigation history (if any).
  • A non-refundable $15,000 “deposit” (registration fee, let’s be honest, if a deposit is non-refundable, it’s not a deposit, it’s a fee…).

 

Besides the initial $15,000 fee, the aspiring operator has to pay the following for an interactive gambling license:

  • Interactive Gaming License Fee – the license needed for an online casino, $100 K per year
  • Annual Renewal Fee – $5,000 per year, per license
  • Player Reserve – the company must have at least $100 K in reserve at all times, on a separate bank account, the bank account can’t be used for anything else, this can only be accessed to pay out players’ winnings if there is not enough money on the main bank accounts, can’t be used to pay for bills, business expense, wages, dividends etc…
  • License Fee for Key People – $1,000 for each key person within the business, during the first year of operation, it is $250 per person after the first year.
  • Monitoring System Fee – fee of the mandatory cheating, hacking monitoring service, $25 K per year for one license and it’s $45 K per year for two licenses (not known how much if you have more than two licenses).

 

Apart from these, depending on the exact type of games you will be offering on your online gambling platform, you will most likely have to do other things too, and pay other associated fees, but it depends on the actual project, you have to contact the The Directorate of Offshore Gaming for the details, with your project’s details.

Additionally, the company needs to have a “significant physical presence in the country” even when it comes to online gambling operations, which means that your actual main office, where your employees work, needs to be on one of the two islands, and just getting an address and a virtual office, just like in an offshore tax haven, is not going to be enough.

It usually takes 60 days for the Commission to come to a decision.

Casinos in Antigua and Barbuda

Casinos are legal since 1963 on the islands of Antigua and Barbuda. The main piece of gambling legislation regulating casino is the Gambling Act 2016 (which is amended by the Gambling Amendment Act 2017**). Out of the two, only the bigger, more populous, more visited Antigua has casinos, 4 casinos to be precise, down from a maximum of 6 casinos around 2010. Mostly due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak. Casinos in the country are reliant on the ever fluctuating number of tourists (mostly from the US) visiting the islands, and pandemic hit them hard.

In order to set up a casino, or an sort of gambling establishments with casino games or gaming machines, a company needs to acquire an interactive gambling license (see below at the casino licensing section). Slot halls are also legal, they require the same licence

The largest casino in Antigua and Barbuda is the King’s Casino in St. John’s, the capital of the islands. King’s Casino offers hundreds of slot machines as well as poker, blackjack, craps and roulette over 14000 square feet.

The King’s Casino is also home to the world’s largest slot machine, named the Colossus. The Colossus towers over other machines as well as players at a staggering height of 15 feet. The $50,000 jackpot is not to be underestimated either.

UPDATE 2021: King’s Casino won’t be the largest for long, Calvin Ayre, local millionaire, and a gambling industry veteran (former owner of Bodog and Bovada) also lives in the country, and he is expected to open his own 5-star luxury resort + casino complex in a few years, Ayre Resort & Casino. This casinos will be at least twice the size of King’s Casino.

 

Can locals enter Antigua and Barbuda casinos?

Yes, unlike in many smaller countries, micronations and the entire Arab world, Antigua and Barbuda casinos are not for tourists only, and locals are allowed to enter too.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Antigua and Barbuda: The Directorate of Offshore Gaming is the licensing and regulatory body, you have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling establishment in the country. They issue two types of gambling licenses: the Interactive Wagering (sports betting, betting), and the Interactive Gambling (online casino, lottery, keno, bingo, casino, slot hall) licenses, contact them if you wish to set up a gambling or online gambling business in the country.

In order to be eligible for a casino licence (interactive gambling licence) you will need:

  • To fill out a Personal Information Form. You, the owner, each business partner, CEO, executives, and each shareholder with 5% or greater controlling interest in the company must fill out one (you can find it on their website).
  • A completed Business Entity Identification Form (you can find it on their website). The organization needs to include details about their financial and litigation history (if any).
  • A non-refundable $15,000 “deposit” (registration fee, let’s be honest, if a deposit is non-refundable, it’s not a deposit, it’s a fee…).

 

Besides the initial $15,000 fee, the aspiring operator has to pay the following for an interactive gambling license:

  • Interactive Gaming License Fee – the license needed for a casino, $100 K per year
  • Annual Renewal Fee – $5,000 per year, per license
  • Player Reserve – the company must have at least $100 K in reserve at all times, on a separate bank account, the bank account can’t be used for anything else, this can only be accessed to pay out players’ winnings if there is not enough money on the main bank accounts, can’t be used to pay for bills, business expense, wages, dividends etc…
  • License Fee for Key People – $1,000 for each key person within the business, during the first year of operation, it is $250 per person after the first year.
  • Monitoring System Fee – fee of the mandatory cheating, hacking monitoring service, $25 K per year for one license and it’s $45 K per year for two licenses (not known how much if you have more than two licenses).

 

Apart from these, depending on the exact type and location of your brick & mortar gambling business, you will most likely have to do other things too, and pay other associated fees, but it depends on the actual project, you have to contact the The Directorate of Offshore Gaming for the details, with your project’s details.

Additionally, the company needs to have a “significant physical presence in the country”, which means that your actual main office, where your employees work, needs to be on one of the two islands, and just getting an address and a virtual office, just like in an offshore tax haven, is not going to be enough.

It usually takes 60 days for the Commission to come to a decision.

List of casinos in Antigua and Barbuda

1., King's Casino
This is a picture of the entrance of King's Casino, Antigua and Barbuda's biggest casino. This is the first element of this list of all the best and biggest brick & mortar casino gambling establishments on the islands. You can find the other gambling establishments on this list below this one. To the right of the picture you can read more about this casino.

King’s Casino

King’s Casino, address: King’s Building, Heritage Quay., High St, St John’s

This is the casino on the picture at the top of the website. This is Antigua and Barbuda’s biggest casino, and is said to be the best as well (has the best reviews, and most table games and machines). They are probably best know for being the home of Colossus, the world’s biggest slot machine (15 ft tall, and as wide as 5 people next to each other). Although, I’m not sure if the XXL slot machine is still in operation, because they no longer advertise it on their website. The casino is open since 1988. 18+.

 

Games: around 350 slots (mostly older slots from 2010, and older + the gigantic slot machine, Colossus), around 10 tables (Spanish 21, Caribbean Stud, blackjack, 3 Card Poker), no roulette according to reviews + sports book

 

Video of King’s Casino:

I couldn’t find any video of the casino. If you know of any, please drop a link to it in the comments section.

 

Opening hours: 10:00 – 02:00, daily, except Sunday, when it’s 10:00 – 24:00

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets above average reviews, 3.5/5, on reviews sites, despite the outdated machines, most of the complaints mention “unfriendly, miserable looking staff”, and  “homeless looking shady people” in and around the casino, but most reviews seem to be positive, not sure how true these complaints are

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Paradise Casino
This is a picture of the logo of Paradise Casino, one of the 4 currently operating Antigua and Barbuda casinos. On this page you can read about the licensing, taxation, legal status, age requirement, address, number of games, opening hours of gaming venues and licensed online casino platforms in the country.

Paradise Casino

Paradise Casino, address: Lower Market Street,St. John’s, Antigua

Paradise Casino is the biggest of the Paradise chain of gambling establishments in Antigua and Barbuda, these are: Paradise East, Paradise Deluxe, Paradise at the Cinema, Paradise casino (this one). All of the Paradise gaming venues are owned by the same company which owns King’s Casino. Only Paradise casino qualifies as a casino, the others are only slot halls (in order for a gambling establishment to be considered a casino, it must have live tables with dealers, or live roulette wheels with croupiers, if it only has slots, it’s a slot parlour). Hot slots is also a slot hall, which belongs to the owners of King’s casino, but for unknown reasons, it does not share the Paradise brand.

The casino has only minimal online presence (only an infrequently updated Facebook page), and very little is known of this casino.

 

Games: around 100 slots + some table games, not known how many and what type (if you know it, please drop a comment at the bottom of the page)

 

Video of King’s Casino:

I couldn’t find any video of the casino. If you know of any, please drop a link to it in the comments section.

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code

Meta review analysis: the casino only has 5 reviews, at least one of them is fake, and one appears to be an employee, therefore it’s not possible to make an analysis, doesn’t have enough genuine reviews yet

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

Bitcoin, cryptocurrency casinos in Antigua and Barbuda

Not specifically regulated. But it’s possibly legal, the wording of the two main gambling acts is very cryptocurrency friendly.

The Gambling Act 2016 says the following about gaming tokens:

“Gaming token: gaming token means East Caribbean Dollars, United States Dollars, other currency or a
token, credit or other thing that enables a bet to be made on a gaming machine, but does not
include a gaming machine credit”

other currency or a token, credit or other thing that enables a bet to be made” , which includes cryptocurrencies.

And the Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007 only has one relevant section:

“146. A licence holder shall not accept cash or currency from a
player. A licence holder may accept payments from a
player by any of the following methods:
(a) credit cards;
(b) debit cards;
(c) electronic transfer;
(d) wire transfer;
(e) cheques; or
(f) any other payment method approved by the
Commission.”

IMO, this could potentially include cryptocurrencies, but I couldn’t find any info on whether the The Directorate of Offshore Gaming approved any cryptocurrency or not. If you know, please drop a comment below with a link to this official announcement.

To the best of my knowledge, The Directorate of Offshore Gaming never made any official announcements regarding cryptocurrencies, which means that Antigua and Barbuda licensed online gambling websites can not yet accept cryptocurrencies (if this is not true, please drop a comment, I was unable to find any official source regarding this, it’s all IMO). However, the gambling acts are written in a way (and I only analyzed the gambling acts) that it is already cryptocurrency-friendly (I have seen much, much worse). And even if some changes will be needed to fully legalize cryptocurrency wagering, minor changes will be enough, in case of online gambling, a simple an official announcement of the gambling regulatory agency would suffice.

 

 

Other forms of gambling in Antigua and Barbuda

Apart from the casinos, slot halls (a.k.a. slot parlours) and the licensed online casinos, online bookmakers, gambling platforms already discussed above, Antigua and Barbuda has very few other forms of games of chance present on the islands.

The only other forms of gambling are: non-profit bingo (organized by charities, for fundraising purposes, in support of charitable causes), and the Caribbean Lottery, a common lottery, shared by Anguilla, Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Maarten and the Virgin Islands, which also syndicates US Powerball and Mega Millions lottery tickets. The entire gambling sector (excluding the lottery) is dependent on the tourism sector, or it is online gambling targeting other countries from the inception.

 

 

History of online gambling in Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda was among the first states to legalise and regulate online gambling, as the law regarding online gambling companies was created as early as 1994. During the first few years, there were more online gambling sites licensed in Antigua than in any other countries.

Since then several other countries have realised the potential income from granting licences to online gambling firms for a certain fee. As a result, such companies no longer flock to Antigua and Barbuda en masse, but a large percentage of online gambling operators are still officially based in Antigua and Barbuda.

Antigua and Barbuda has had a long dispute with the United States regarding the latter’s online gambling policies. Antigua argued to the World Trade Organization that the USA violated the General Agreement on Trade Service, and the WTO ruled in the favor of the islands. It was determined that the US remote gambling laws are, in some ways discriminatory against foreign online betting companies.

Antigua and Barbuda became a whitelisted jurisdiction in 2008, which meant at the time that online gambling companies licensed within the state could legally advertise and provide their services to the UK market. However, since 2014 online gambling companies need to be licensed in the UK as well in order to operate within the country, which means that being licensed in a whitelisted country no longer provides an advantage to online gambling operators.

Last Updated on 2021-04-10 by Simon

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!

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!
