Paraguay Casino Guide

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Paraguay (officially the Republic of Paraguay, the Heart of South America, a landlocked country with a population of 7,359,000, with two official languages: Spanish and Guarini). Find out which are the best land-based casinos and licensed online casino sites in Paraguay, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

Online casinos in Paraguay

Legal status of Paraguay internet casino sites: legal since 2017, requires licence

 

Even though gambling, and in particular brick & mortar casino gambling has a long tradition in Paraguay (legal since 1943, details can be found below this section, in the land-based casinos section), online casino gambling is still a new phenomena, only legal since 2017. The main piece of online gambling legislation is the 2017 Decreto Conajzar 73071.

The government of Paraguay considered online casinos illegal for very long time, because they were automatically treated as though they were connected to money laundering activities.

/Comment: In all fairness, online casino are often used in money laundering schemes by organized crime groups, and most of them are owned by shell companies registered in offshore tax havens. However, nowadays, it’s mostly unlicensed bitcoin casinos which are used for such purposes, because it’s even easier and more hassle-free. Apparently, the government of Paraguay is not yet aware of this recent trend./

Rouge domestic companies operating unlicensed online casinos are committing a crime, and they are prosecuted accordingly.

E.g.: Paraguayan authorities cracked down on an illegal online gambling ring, and have taken 80 Taiwanese nationals into custody with charges of running an illegal online gambling business that mainly targeted the Chinese market1 (gambling is illegal in mainland China). Most of these Taiwanese criminals resided in Paraguay illegally, and were involved in other criminal activates as well. Involvement of the Chinese mafia (the Triad) is suspected.

This shows that the Paraguayan government takes the fight against illegally operating online casino operators seriously, at least when domestic companies are involved. However, licensees online casinos are operating legally, and Conajzar, The National Commission of Games of Chance issues online casino licenses among other online gambling licenses as well.

By scrolling below, you can find a list of online casinos accepting Paraguayan players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Paraguay?

Yes, the online gambling laws of any country only apply to citizens and lawful permanent residents, 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 Paraguay:

Online gambling licensing and regulation is done by the Comisión Nacional de Juegos de Azar (the Conajzar, The National Commission of Games of Chance). Only companies, which posses a brick and mortar casino licence can apply. The application process, requirements, fees are sadly not known.

If you know anything about the fees, process and additional requirements of online casino licenses, then please drop a comment with the details. I couldn’t unearth any additional info sadly.

Land-based casinos in Paraguay

Legal status of Paraguay brick & mortar casinos: legal since 1943, requires licence

 

Casinos have been legal in Paraguay since 1943. The current main piece of the gambling legislation is Law No. 10161 from 1997 (amended many times since).

The 1980s and 1990s could be called the ‘golden age’ of casino gambling in Paraguay, with dozens of new “casinos” (slot halls, but they called themselves casinos often, but they only had gamign machines, no tables, dealers or croupiers) opening throughout the country. Unfortunately, the prevalence of gaming venues led to a surge of problem gambling and organized crime groups also used them for  money laundering. As a result, the Paraguayan government decided to crack down on these often unlicensed venues in the early 200s. By 2005 most of them were forcibly colsed.

The casino regulation currently in effect in was established in light of the 2005 ban, and is significantly more strict than the previous casino acts. In accordance with this, all casinos must be licensed by the Paraguayan Gambling Commission, the Comisión Nacional de Juegos de Azar (colloquially known as the Conjazar, details of the licensing process, fees, requirements can be found below).

Since 2005, 20 casinos have managed to comply with the stricter gambling regulations. But there are still many (100+) slot halls in the country.

The largest casino in Paraguay is the Casino Carnaval, in Encarnación. You can read about the casino in the list below.

You can find the TOP biggest brick-and-mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Paraguay?

Yes, both locals and tourists can play in the casinos.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Paraguay:

Gambling licensing and regulation is done by the Comisión Nacional de Juegos de Azar (the Conajzar, The National Commission of Games of Chance). Their website, the licensing process, fees, requirements and all info are only available in Spanish. Therefore, if you don’t speak the language, you will need to get a translator.

Only the requirements of a casino license are documented, and even that is dependent on which province the casino will be located.

Usually, in order to get a casino license a company must invest at least $3 million (but usually we are talking about $50 – 70 million project costs, it’s unlikely they will take an applicant that only plans to invest $3 million seriously). The casinos usually must be attached to a hotel (one known exception is Asunción).

Only provinces with at least 250 K inhabitants can have a casinos, one per 250 K inhabitants + the capital can have one casinos. The provinces which qualify are:

 

The maximum number of casino licenses currently is around 25 based on the population number and distribution.

/Calculation: 7,359,000 – total population/250,000 = it would be 29 casino licenses, but some provinces don’t have 250 000 people living in them, you have to subtract that number from this, and the total is around 25/

And there are at least 20 casinos already, which means all the good spots are taken.

Slot halls, only need permission from local government in order to operate. they can only have gaming machines, it’s uncertain whether electronic tables are considered a gaming machine or a table games. If you know what’s the official stance of the government on this issue please drop a comment, thank you.

/Comment: Because if electronic tables are legal, then what’s the point of getting a casino license? What’s the point of going through the bureaucratic nightmare of getting a casino license then, and paying higher taxes, fees? People mostly care about slots and electronic tables are a great substitute, in fact, more profitable than regular tables…./

In 2016, slot machines were banned from public places, convenience stores and other small businesses. Slot halls are now required to be located at least 500 meters away from educational facilities and places of worship. More restrictions on slot parlours are expected in the future.

A license is usually issued for 20 years. The licensing process is a public tender, and chosen applicants are offered a concession contract. The re are monthly fixed license fees, the amount depends on the location, type, province.

Gamble responsibly,

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!
