Online casinos in Belize

Legal status of Belize online casinos: technically illegal for locals, not enforced, players are not prosecuted, legal for licensed companies to accept players internationally

 

Online casinos in Belize are legal since 1995, and regulated by Belize’s Computer Wagering Act*. The entity supervising online casino gambling is the Belize Computer Wagering Licensing Board. Online casino require a license to operate, and can accept players internationally, but not from Belize (this is common among online licensing hubs, to protect locals from problem gambling, and ensure that the companies focus their efforts on foreign markets. There is no online casino licensing in place for foreign companies who wish to accept players from Belize and get a local license. It’s technically illegal for foreign companies to do it, but the government doesn’t block these websites and players who play in these online casinos are not prosecuted or fined.

The online casinos below are not licensed in Belize, and accept players from the country.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Belize?

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 Belize:

The licensing and regulatory authority in Belize is the Belize Computer Wagering Licensing Board, you have to contact them if you wish to set up an online casino platform in the country (they don’t have a website, there is no contact info, you have to contact the government from the website linked, if you have their contact info, please drop it in the comments section below).

By law, licensed online gambling and betting companies may not offer their services to residents of Belize. Applicants are vetted, and only a “fit and proper person” will be considered eligible for a license (no convictions, no legal issues, enough money, prior experience in the gambling industry).

Customer service facilities of online gambling providers licensed in Belize need to be located within the country. However, the servers themselves can be located elsewhere.

Licensed companies are required to maintain a separate bank account, that is only used to process wagers, and may charge a processing fee up to 5%, or USD 20, whichever is greater. Operators also face a 15% withholding tax on payments of winnings or prizes. Licenses are valid for a year, from April 1 – to March 31. One licence per person, per company.

Corporate tax: 25%

 

Licensing fees: two types of licenses, regular $ 100 000 , exclusive $200 000 per year + one time $10 000 licensing fee

 

A gambling license from Belize is considered the best gambling license from the Caribbean region for the following:

PART II – Control of Computer Wagering – 8 (2):

“In case the licence holder fails to pay any wagers won by the computer users, or any tax or other sum due from him in connection with the computer wagering service, or to perform any other obligations which he is bound to perform, the Board may deduct such money from the cash deposit made by such person or may recover it from that person by such other means as the law allows.”

Which means, if the company refuse to pay out your winnings, you can contact the licensing board, and they will try to get the money for you from the company or the person who owns the licensed company. This is a rarity among offshore gambling licenses, and the overwhelming majority, as much as 90% of them don’t offer such protection.

Land-based casinos in Belize

Legal status: legal, requires a license

 

Land-based casinos are legal, and there are 7 casinos in the country currently.. Just like with online casinos, land-based casino operators must obtain a casino licence in order to offer their services legally.

Brick and mortar casinos in Belize are supervised by the Belize Gaming Control Board. The minimum age for both obtaining a casino licence and entering a casino in Belize is 18 years. Although it is not specifically stated in the law, casino licences are generally issued to establishments operating as part of a hotel complex, and they mostly cater to guest of the hotel, and tourists.

Belize is located on the shore of the Caribbean Sea, bordering Mexico. The country is a popular tourist destination among those looking for casino gambling during their vacation. Most of these tourists are visiting from the US, and some are from Mexico, where casino gambling opportunities are somewhat limited.

There are currently 7 land-based casinos in operation in Belize, this is despite the COVID-19 pandemic. UPDATE 2021: Belize is actually the only Caribbean country where the number of casinos  increased despite the coronavirus epidemic, and the number of casinos went from 4 in 2015 to 7 in 2021.

The Princess group has the most gaming venues, 3. The largest casino is Golden Princess Casinos, located in the Ramada Plaza Hotel. The Princess Casino offers almost 500 gaming machines as well as a variety of gaming tables, including roulette, blackjack and various forms of poker.

 

Can locals enter the casinos in Belize?

Yes, unlike in many small countries (and many muslim countries) with a strong tourism sector, the casinos are open to the locals as well, not just the tourists.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Belize:

The offline games of chance licenses are issued by the Gaming Control Board, Belmopan, Belize, Tel. (501) 822-0405, Fax (501) 822-2854, Email: [email protected] (the contact info doesn’t work, please let me know in the comments section). You have to contact them if you wish to set up a casino in the country.

List of the TOP 5 best and biggest brick & mortar casinos in Belize

 

1., Ramada by Wyndham Princess Casino
This is a picture of the front gate of Ramada by Ramada by Wyndham Princess Casino, formerly Golden Princess Casino, this is Belize's biggest and best casinos. This is the first element of this list of the TOP 5 best and biggest casino gambling establishments in the country. 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.
Ramada by Wyndham Princess Casino

Ramada by Wyndham Princess Casino, address: Newton Barracks Rd, Belize City

A very convoluted and dumb name (it’s an SEO name, if you know anything about SEO, you will know what’s up…), let’s break it down, it refers to Ramada by Windham (a company), whom the Ramada Plaza Hotel belongs, where the Golden Princess Casino is located (this casino), and from all these names they created this word salad. It was formerly called Golden Princess Casino Belize City, which is only a little bit better…. But after all, people don’t care about the name. The casino has very little info available online. But based on what little is there (the other casinos in Belize also have terrible online presence), it is probably Belize’s biggest and best casino with a 1525 m2 size.

 

Games: around 500 slots, around 14 tables (American Roulette, Caribbean Poker, blackjack, baccarat, Texas Hold-em Poker)

The casino also has bingo, a poker room, and a VIP room.

Bitcoin, crypto casinos in Belize

Cryptocurrency gambling is not specifically regulated in Belize. However, bitcoin is definitely not illegal, and actually, the country is home to a digital currency exchange, 247exchange. Online gambling is also legal, and players can use bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, bitcoin etc., or any other cryptocurrency to play online. And there is at least one bitcoin casino with a Belize online casino license, BitcoinPenguin (but there maybe more), which means that accepting crypto is oaky with the government and the Belize Computer Wagering Licensing Board.

According to Computer Wagering Licensing – Part 2 Control of Computer Wagering – Act 9 (4):

“There shall be no cash deposits by any computer user and funds may be placed on deposit only by cheque, cashier’s cheque, money order, wire transfer or other electronic means.”

Which means, that cryptocurrency is okay, because they are all electronic, therefore fine, according to the regulations governing games of chance.

 

Other forms of online gambling in Belize

Belize is most known in the gambling industry for its online gambling licensing. However, the country is probably the least popular internet wagering licensing hub in the Caribbean, because of the relatively high 25% corporate tax and the gambling withholding tax, only a handful of online gambling companies are licensed here.

Bingo is also legal, and it is played in some of the casinos, but it’s not a big bingo scene. The largest bingo operator in Belize is Mega-Bingo, but they do not actually offer any of their games online. There are also no other online bingo operators based in Belize.

The Belizean National Lottery also has a website, but only the winning numbers are available for checking, they do not sell lottery tickets online, in fact, they don’t even have a website.

The situation is much the same for online sports betting as well: there are some licensed online sports betting sites, but these are not available to locals, and wen it comes to land-based bookmakers, there is only one casino that has a sports book.

 

 

The following online gambling websites accept players from Belize:

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!
