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

 

Gambling and online gambling are legal in the island country of Aruba. The first time gambling was codified, and officially legalized, was 1959, when the first gambling establishment opened in the country. Online gambling legalization officially started in 1999, with the legalization of the online lottery platform Lotto pa Deporte. The main pieces of gambling legislation are: Ordinance on Licenses* (regulating licensing of gambling activities, establishments), Ordinance on Lotteries** (as the name suggest, regulates anything lottery related), State Ordinance for Hazard Games*** (general gambling law).

Aruba is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, along with Curaçao, Sint Marteen and of course, the Netherlands. While the legal system of the country is based on the Dutch system, this is not evident in the gambling legislation at all. This is because the country can make its own laws, which includes the regulation of games of chance and internet wagering, which are vastly different from its more restrictive, more bureaucratic Dutch counterpart (the laws of which are largely influenced by the EU harmonization and convergence directive).

Most forms of gambling are legal and regulated in Aruba, with all operators requiring a license (see below at the licensing section). However, the country has been heavily criticised for its lax enforcement of gambling laws, which has allegedly enabled some casinos to be used for money laundering in the past. However, this has been addressed, and there have been no recent scandals.

Aruba is famous for its casinos, the first of which opened in 1959 (it’s not a big deal anymore, but back in the 60s – 70s not that many countries in the Caribbean had casinos, and Aruba was known as the “Las Vegas of the Caribbean” along with Cuba).

The country is still a favourite of tourist with a penchant for gambling, and a love for the Caribbean. Although, now that casinos are ubiquitous in the region, relying on casinos is no longer enough, and competition for tourists in the region has intensified.

The Aruban government places heavy emphasis on protecting locals from problem gambling and the negative effects of the local casinos on the island. There is a limit in place, locals are only allowed 8 casino visits per month (but they are still allowed to enter the gaming venues, unlike in many other smaller countries).

UPDATE 2021: The COVID-19 pandemic badly effected the tourist oriented Aruba gambling sector. But interestingly, only one of the 15 casinos closed permanently. However, in the aftermath of the pandemic, more closures are expected. Sadly, this is more of an exception than the norm, and the other countries in the region were affected more. Also, some claim that the 8 visits per month rule for locals is reportedly not enforced, because of the decrease in the number of visitors. The remaining casinos are cash-strapped, and need to rely much more on local visitors (this is according to social media posts, reviews, and comments only, not sure how serious the issue is, or how widespread it is, but it definitely sounds believable, ethics are the first thing to go, when a business is desperate for money…).

You can see a list of online gambling websites which accept players from Aruba below.

If you are new to Aruba, never heard of it, never been there, check out the following short travel video to get a feel for the place:

 

/Looks pretty nice! I wish I had the free time and money to visit. Maybe one day… :). Definitely one for the bucket list./

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Aruba?

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 Aruba

Department of Casino Affairs (DAC – Departamento di Asuntonan di Casino), a subdepartment of the ministry of Justice, is responsible for the licensing and regulation of gambling activities and establishments on the island. Sadly, the government’s webpage is only fully available in Dutch and Papiamento (the English version is “in the process of being translated” for years now…). Therefore, if you wish to set up a gambling business, you need to hire a translator and contact them.

If you are thinking about setting up a business in Aruba, you will need the following documents in Dutch or Papiamento:

 

The licenses are valid for five years. Licensed companies pay a fixed a monthly fee of 5000 AF (Aruban Florin) license fee + the gambling tax below. Interestingly, locally licensed online gambling companies can not accept players from the Netherlands. Nearby Curaçao and Sint Marteen have the same restriction in place too (all are constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands).

Online gambling licensing is actually a huge source of revenue for Curaçao and Aruba. Hundreds of online gambling platforms operate with licenses from the two (mostly online casinos, and Curacao is much more popular when it comes to licenses). The biggest advantages of an Aruba license are:

Casino gambling in Aruba: legal, requires license

Online casino gambling in Aruba: legal, requires license

 

Casino gambling is legal in Aruba, and it is an important, sector of the economy since 1959. Tourist from the United States,Venezuela and The Netherlands accounts for about 80% of the total number of visitors.* And tourism (with gambling and all other tourism dependent revenues included) contributes about 70% of the GDP.**

A small graph illustrating the % contribution of tourism and the gambling sector to the GDP, directly and indirectly in Aruba. The contribution of the tourism sector to the GDP is is 73.6% indirectly, and 30.4% directly.
Aruba – tourism and GDP

 

Companies who wish to operate a casino gambling establishment in Aruba need to obtain a gambling license. Land-based casinos may only be operated attached to a hotel. Therefore, casino operators are also required to have a hotel license.

Currently the island hosts 21 20 brick and mortar casinos (UPDATE COVID-19:  due to the coronavirus pandemic, 1 casino closed permanently, the new total is 20), in these establishments all the main forms of casino gambling are available. Games include, but are not limited to, baccarat, craps, blackjack, roulette, poker and slot machines, video poker machines, the usual casino staples. And of course, Caribbean Stud Poker, which can be found in almost every casino in or near the Caribbean (in fact, it is claimed that Caribbean Stud Poker was invented in the country in 1988). Most of the Aruban casinos are open from 11 am until the early morning, with the Crystal Casino in Oranjestad being the only one that is open 24 hours a day.

Locals are also allowed to visit the casinos in Aruba, but are limited to 8 visits per month. However, this measure, aiming to prevent gambling addiction among the locals, does not seem to be strictly enforced according to online reviews and social media posts (no really high quality source for this sadly, take it with a grain of salt). The legal age to enter casinos in Aruba is 18, and most of the casinos use $ – US dollars.

Apart from casinos gaming machines can be placed at airports with a special licence.

Online casinos are also legal in Aruba with a remote gambling license.

Bingo in Aruba

Bingo in Aruba: legal, license required, not specifically regulated

Online Bingo in Aruba:legal, license required, not specifically regulated

 

Bingo is legal in Aruba, although it’s not mentioned anywhere in the gambling legislation. Gambling must take place in the licensed casinos attached to hotels. Bingo games are organized in most of the land-based casinos in Aruba, usually in the afternoon, on the weekends, and are actually quite popular. However, there is an exception, Bingo Club Caiquetio, which is not located in a casino. I have no idea how this exception came to be, but if you know anything about how they are able to operate without a casino license, and outside of a casino, please drop a comment.

Online bingo is not mentioned anywhere in the gambling legislation. It’s definitely legal with an online gambling license, because licensed online bingo projects have been announced, but apart from this, nothing is known.*

The following bingo websites accept players from Aruba:

Poker in Aruba

Poker in Aruba: legal, operators require license

Online Poker in Aruba: legal, operators require license

 

Poker is legal in Aruba, and can be played in any of the country’s brick and mortar casinos.

The most popular type of poker is probably Caribbean Stud Poker, which is the main form of poker in the Caribbean. Caribbean Stud Poker was actually invented in nearby Antigua and Barbuda in the 1980s.

Aruba has also hosted bigger poker events too, like the Players Poker Championship, which was held at the Hilton Aruba Resort & Casino. UPDATE 2021: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all poker events are suspended indefinitely, and casinos closed their poker sections.

Online poker is also legal in Aruba, with the remote gambling permit.

The following online poker sites accept players from Aruba.

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!
