Antigua and Barbuda Gambling Laws, the legal status of casino gambling, poker, bingo, sports betting, lottery, cryptocurrency games of chance + licensed online wagering platforms

 

Both gambling (legal since 1963) and online gambling (since 1994) are legal on the islands of 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, the main pieces of gambling legislation are the Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007*, and the Gambling Act 2016** amended with the 2017 Gambling Amendment Act). Not only is online gambling legal in the country, it 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.

/Comment: And considering that the population of Antigua and Barbuda is an ageing population******, the relative contribution of the online gambling sector among working age, adult, ordinary citizens is probably considerably higher, based on a preliminary look at the numbers it’s probably 10%+, which means that every tenth person with a job was employed by the online casinos and betting platforms licensed in the country. You can only see higher figures in offshore tax havens and micronations./

 

However, the online gambling sector of the country was destroyed by the US, in just a few years, between 1999-2003. The US political “elite”, and the so called 1%, leveraged their enormous influence, and managed to get all the big financial institution, payment processors and internet service providers (these are collectively called master service providers) to deny service, stop transactions, restrict access, and just make it impossible for Antigua and Barbuda licensed online casinos to operate, even though they were legally operating licensed gambling establishments, 100% perfectly legal according to the laws of Antigua and Barbuda, and international laws at that time (this happens outside of the world of gambling sector too, the US is often resorting to this sort of tactics, even today, some good examples are Parler, and what happened to Subscribestar, same tactics, same 1% and the Fortune 500).

/Comment: Although, in all fairness, and this is not mentioned in the video below, most of these online casinos and bookmakers in Antigua and Barbuda primarily accepted US players and haven’t paid any taxes to the US government, didn’t get local licenses in any of the states, directly competed with tax-paying licensed domestic online gambling businesses, and they even accepted players from states where online gambling was illegal. Not to mention, they used underhanded methods to go around the US Federal Wire Act of 1961 (US federal gambling laws are very complicated, you can read more about the US gambling, online betting, wagering laws, regulations here if you are interested)./

 

The following video provides a short summary of this situation and gambling conflict with the USA:

 

Even though the World Trade Organization ruled in favour of Antigua and Barbuda the US government still hasn’t paid, and owes about $100 million to the tiny country. Because so much of their tourism sector is dependent on US visitors, fearing sanctions from the US, they buried the hatchet, and they moved on.

This is pretty common btw., on an international level, small countries can never win against the big countries, despite all the posturing, and talk of the importance of the word of law. At the end of the day, they can just simply refuse to pay, and nobody would risk a global conflict over something like this.

As a side note, Antigua had to reinstate income tax, for the first time since 1975, to make up for revenue lost because of the disintegration of their online gambling sector, which was devastating for the country and the populace. How suicide rate correlates with the destruction of the online gambling sector by the American 1% is probably the best way to illustrate just how bad of an effect this had on everyday, working, 9-to-5 locals (online gambling jobs were usually better paying jobs, often with above average wages): 

This is a graph of Antigua and Barbuda suicide rates between 2000-2021. This is meant to illustrate the correlation between the increase in suicides, the loss of high paying jobs) and the destruction of the prosperous online gambling sector in the country.
Explanation: The earliest data is from 2000 sadly, no info about the suicide rate is available prior to 2000 (it was not measured), but even this is telling. Notice the spike in the total, completed suicides around 2000, at the beginning, which is in line with the 1999-2003 timeline of the destruction of the online gambling sector by the US government, Wall Street and the complicit US IT sector (which was complicit even back then, just like today). In 2000, there were 4x more suicides than 2018, which is quite a huge and drastic increase.

 

 

Even though the the significance of the country’s online gambling licensing has diminished greatly, it actually never stopped.

However, US residents have not been able to access Antigua and Barbuda licensed online gambling platforms since the stricter regulations of 2003 (despite the WTO ruling, the number of gambling companies licensed in the country has dropped from 93 to 38 by the end of 2003, and only a few of those are still in operation nowadays, these are usually smaller companies, only accept cryptocurrency, and they voluntarily ban US visitors to avoid the eye of the US government and competition).

BUT! Antigua and Barbuda is one of the jurisdictions whitelisted by the UK Gambling Commission, which means UK residents are allowed to access the services of Antiguan and Barbudan gambling operators. Which means that the US market is out, but the also very lucrative UK market is in.

/UPDATE 2021: now that the UK has left the EU (info about the UK gambling situation post Brexit can be found here), even whitelisted operators are required to apply for a UK gambling license, and go through the lengthy and expensive accreditation process. What will be the future of the whitelist is not known currently, but IMO it will probably be discontinued./

 

Additionally, Antigua, the main island is also the home (and some say the hideout), of controversial North American casino mogul Calvin Ayre (who is in his 60s now, and he is often portrayed in the media as a playboy, the Hugh Hefner of the casino world. He is best known for his money, primarily, and his run-ins with the law in Canada, the USA, and as the owner of Bovada and Bodog (at least one of which was sold in 2009 to the Canadian First Nations Morris Mohawk Gaming Group of Kahnawake, and among us, gambling bloggers and people working in the gambling industry, he is also known for his fantastic gambling news portal, which I have used, and linked to in many of my guides, sadly Calvinayre.com was officially retired in 2021, and it is in the process of being phased out). The former owner of Bovada is investing in a cryptocurrency portal nowadays. He aims to contribute to the cryptocurrency revolution, which provides an alternative to the US petrodollar based banking system, and the network of payment processors, which are the gatekeepers of the 1%. Godspeed, I wish them the best of luck, we definitely could use as many alternatives as possible….

 

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.

 

Gambling licensing in Antigua and Barbuda

The Directorate of Offshore Gaming is the licensing and regulatory body, and it issues two types of gambling licenses: the Interactive Wagering (sports betting, betting), and the Interactive Gambling (casino games, lottery, keno, bingo) licenses, contact them if you wish to set up a gambling or online gambling business in the country. To be eligible for a license, the company must be a business incorporated under the laws of Antigua and Barbuda, within the country, no exceptions.

Additionally you will need:

 

Besides the initial $15,000 fee, the aspiring operator has to pay the following:

 

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.

This only applies to online gambling, if you wish to set up a land-based gambling establishment you need  all this + you have to follow the specific and lengthy instructions relevant to your specific type of gambling establishment in Gambling Act 2016. It’s much more complicated and expensive.

Summary:

 

 

Casino gambling in Antigua and Barbuda

Brick & mortar casino gambling in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require license

Online casino gambling in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require license

 

Land-based and online casino gambling are both legal in Antigua and Barbuda, both require an interactive gambling license issued by the Directorate of Offshore Gambling.

There are 4 casinos and around 10 slot halls, all of them are on the main, bigger, more populous island, Antigua (has around a 100 K residents, the entry point for tourists) has all the gambling establishments, while the significantly smaller Barbuda (only has around 1700 residents, tourists rarely visit) has 0 gambling establishments.  At certain points, before COVID-19 especially, there were 6 casinos and around 12 slot halls,, but over time, specifically as a direct result of the Asian coronavirus only 4 casinos managed to stay in business.

/Comment: But fear not, a new casino is expected to open in 2023, it will be the twin islands’ first 5 star luxury resort + casino, this is the pet project of local rich guy, serial entrepreneur and casino expert Calvin Ayre, it will be called Ayre Resort & Casino, and the company behind the project is Ayre Group ;), me an him have the same naming convention (wish we would share a bank account too…), I can relate, personal branding makes you unique and also makes the project personally important to you, a part of you, your family, whatever happens to it will have a direct effect on how people perceive you, your image, your “personal brand”, and that makes you work extra hard, and if it comes off as pompous, arrogant it’s still worth it. Because motivation is worth it’s weight in gold, actually worth much more, and if you are a self-made entrepreneur, you can easily relate./

The amount of online casinos which have an Antigua and Barbuda gambling license keeps dwindling since 2000, due to the conflict with the US, because of the issues with the UK whitelist, and because of competition from the tax haven micronations (, which are the new centres of online casino licensing sadly). There are probably less than 10 online casino companies still licensed in the country, but no official list of licensees is being published for years now (at its height there were 93 companies , with 500+ online casinos licensed here).

Bingo in Antigua and Barbuda

Bingo in Antigua and Barbuda: non-profit bingo is mentioned in the gambling legislation, non-profit bingo is legal and tax exempt, commercial, for profit, land-based bingo is also legal with an interactive gambling licence technically

Online Bingo in Antigua and Barbuda: legal with an interactive gambling license

 

Only non-profit bingo, and private bingo (social gambling) are mentioned in the Gambling Act 2016, and that’s the only piece of gambling legislation that mentions bingo, apart from a single sentence in Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007, which lists among the gambling activities covered by an interactive gambling license. Therefore, it is technically legal, both offline and online.

However, as with most land-based forms of gambling, it needs to be approved by the government, and ultimately, it has the final say in what is allowed or what is not allowed, regardless of what is in the gambling legislation. And it is very unlikely that the government would allow a bingo hall, considering how underregulated land-based bingo is (except non-profit). Especially, considering, that the taxation of a bingo hall is not yet established (and you can be certain that the government really cares about that tax revenue). There are no bingo halls in Antigua and Barbuda currently, and in my honest opinion, an attempt to establish one would be rejected by the government until bingo halls get a legislative overhaul, which is probably not going to happen any time soon.

Online bingo is definitely legal, and it is specifically mentioned in the Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007 as a legal gambling activity, with an interactive gambling license. And the licensing and taxation of such online businesses is very straightforward. Despite this, I have never come across an online bingo site licensed in Antigua and Barbuda, but if you know any, please drop a link to that website in the comments section.

The following bingo websites accept players from Antigua and Barbuda:

Poker in Antigua and Barbuda

Poker in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require an interactive gambling license

Online Poker in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require an interactive gambling license

 

Poker is legal in Antigua and Barbuda; operators are required to obtain an interactive gambling license. There is no separate card room or poker club license, therefore the fixed license fees will be the same whether you open a casino or just a poker club. This is probably the reason why there aren’t any card clubs on any of the islands.

Poker tables are available in 2 of the 4 casinos in Antigua and Barbuda. There is not a wide range of poker types available, it’s just the usual casino staple of Texas Hold’em and Caribbean Stud Poker. Poker games are also sometimes available in the casinos of the bigger cruise ships, which often stop at the docks of St. John (the capital) or Antigua and Barbuda.

There are a few online poker sites based in Antigua and Barbuda, which are accessible for players online as well as local Antigua and Barbuda players.

The following online poker sites accept players from Antigua and Barbuda.

Lottery in Antigua and Barbuda

Land-based, offline lottery in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require an interactive gambling license

Online lottery in Antigua and Barbuda: legal, operators require an interactive gambling license

 

Both land-based and online lottery are legal with an interactive gambling license. Companies can get licensed and operate out of Antigua and Barbuda and accept players internationally.

Several types of lottery games are available in Antigua and Barbuda. As the twin islands are situated in the Caribbean Sea, they have a common lottery with Anguilla, Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Maarten and the Virgin Islands. This is the Caribbean Lottery, which is owned by IGT – International Game Technology, which is the world’s largest private lottery operator, among many other things, and it is one of the biggest gambling companies. Games offered include Keno, scratch cards, Super Lotto and also syndicated Mega Millions and Powerball. The Caribbean Lottery games are only available at physical lottery retailers, and there is no online platform yet.

Foreign online lottery platforms are also freely accessible and are not blocked, some of them accept Antigua and Barbuda players, this is only theoretically legal if the platform in question has a local interactive gambling license .

/Comment: However, this is not enforced at all, nobody actually checks this, not to mention, it’s a very complicated legal question with no easy answer. Just think about it, what if you are from Antigua and Barbuda and you visit the online lottery platform of a Hungarian online gambling company, but the servers, where the transaction, the data, the information of your visit was stored was in France, and the payment processor, which handled your transactions was in New York. Where does the actual gambling activity, the purchase of lottery tickets take place? Which country’s gambling laws apply in this case? Hungary? USA? The state of New York? France? Or Antigua and Barbuda? Or all of them, or a subset of them? It’s a legal nightmare, and that’s why people generally don’t really care whether an online gambling website is licensed or not. It’s too much effort to even determine which laws apply to what, and the government can’t realistically expect the average person to know all of this, or to even care about it./

 

Buying lottery tickets in person, while abroad, is perfectly legal (this is because they are outside of the jurisdiction of the country, and you are too, while making the purchase).

The following website let people from Antigua and Barbuda purchase lottery tickets online:

 

BitCoin, cryptocurrency gambling in Antigua and Barbuda

Bitcoin gambling in Antigua and Barbuda: not specifically regulated, but probably legal for brick & mortar casinos, and probably illegal for online casinos

 

Cryptocurrency gambling, cryptocurrencies are not mentioned specifically in the Antigua and Barbuda gambling legislation. However, some parts (outlined below) of the two main gambling acts could easily include cryptocurrencies.

The only relevant section in the Gambling Act 2016 is a definition of the gaming token:

“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”

IMO, this definition could easily include cryptocurrencies.

 

And in Interactive Gaming and Interactive Wagering Regulations 2007, the main piece of gambling legislation regulating online gambling, this is the only 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.

The following bitcoin gambling sites are available for players from the country.

Description
Antigua and Barbuda was the first country on Earth to issue online gambling licenses, as early as 1994, when less than 1% of the people had access to the internet in their homes.
