Online casinos in Egypt

Legal status of digital casinos in Egypt: illegal, players are not prosecuted

 

Online casinos are not specifically regulated in Egypt. Online casino gambling is not mentioned anywhere in the Egyptian gambling legislation.

However, according to Law No. 175 of 2018 – Anti-Cyber and Information Technology Crimes Law1, all forms of online gambling is technically illegal.

According the Penal Code operating an unlicensed gambling websites is a criminal offence, and operators are punished by:

  • a fine of 1000 Egyptian pounds (€ 50)
  • imprisonment for a period of 6 months

 

However, players who play on offshore online gambling websites are not prosecuted2. Some international internet casinos accept Egyptian payers.

/Officially:”لم يضع القانون نصا واضحا لتجريم المقامرة الالكترونية، إلوأموال ” – unofficial translation: ‘The law did not specifically make online gambling a criminal offence’, and that is why players are not prosecuted, only organizers and operators of illegal websites are./

UPDATE 2022: I added this section because you might be wondering:

How is it legal for online casinos to accept players from Egypt? Isn’t it illegal?

It’s only illegal for Egyptian citizens to play online. These foreign online gambling websites, which accept players from Egypt, are registered and licensed in foreign countries and the Egyptian laws only apply within the borders of the country (within the so called jurisdiction, they do not apply to these foreign gambling websites).

According to the local gambling laws of the countries in which these offshore gambling companies operate it’s perfectly legal to accept players from Egypt.

But it’s not legal for Egyptian citizens to place bets on these platforms.

International law can be complicated, and enforcement is even more tricky, I hope this clears this up.

However, I officially do not recommend playing online from Egypt, it’s illegal, and you should always act according to the laws of your country, even if it’s not enforced, play at your own risk.

There are no domestic Egypt licensed digital casino platforms, and online casinos licences are not issued.

On the other hand, land-based casinos are completely legal (you can see the details below, in the next section, above the Egypt casino list).

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Egyptian players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Egypt?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Egypt:

N/A, online casino licences are not issued.

Land-based casinos in Egypt

Legal status of casinos in Egypt: legal since 1955, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Egypt since 1955, according to Law No. 18 of 19551, which was replaced by bill 1/1973 Concerning Hotels and Touristic Resorts Activity2, which is the main piece of the casino gambling legislation.

A licence from the The Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities is needed to operate a casino (details of the casino licensing process can be found below, at the Egypt casino licence section), operating illegal gambling establishments is illegal and a criminal offence according to the Egypt Penal Code3:

“Whoever provides a location for gambling games (…) shall be punished with detention and a fine not exceeding one thousand pounds and/or imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months.” – (1000 Egyptian pounds = € 50)

Locals (Egyptian citizens) are forbidden to place bets at  the casinos, only tourists, non-Egyptian citizens with foreign passports are allowed to enter and play.

Additionally, casinos must be attached to hotels, standalone casino can not operate in Egypt. Slot halls are also illegal, and slot hall licences are not issued.

Luckily for the casino operators Egypt is a well-known tourist hot psot, and it gets around 13 million visitors per year4. This greatly helps the casino sector, which is entirely reliant on these travelers.

UPDATE COVID-19: These are post coronavirus pandemic numbers, the numbers have dropped significantly, to 3.2 million, and as a result many casinos have closed.

There are around 25 casinos in Egypt, the biggest of which is Sinai Grand Casino (and the second biggest is Casino Royale). And the biggest Egyptian casino group is the Raineau Group, which owns Sonesta Casino, Sinia grand Casino and Nile City Casino.

Interesting fact: There is also a floating casino in Egypt, the Casino Barriere Le Pacha, which is probably the most unique casino in the country. You can find it in the casino list below.

Casino only accept USD and/or EUR, none of the Egypt casinos accept the national currency, the Egyptian pound. Mayn of the casinos are 24/7.

Because the gambling establishments are so strongly reliant on tourists the overwhelming majority of them can only be found in Cairo, the capital, and the resort town of Sharm Al Shiekh, and in their vicinity.

Interesting fact: It is unknown how the government reconciles the legalization of casinos with the Islamic values of the majority Muslim population.

According to teachings of Quran: gambling (maisir) is forbidden (haram) for Muslims (90% of the population of Egypt is an adherents of Islam, Islamic values are deeply entrenched in the society)5.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Egypt?

No, only tourists (non-Egyptian citizens) can enter the casinos. You must show your foreign passport to enter any of the gaming venues.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Egypt:

The The Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities is responsible for issuing licences to casino gambling establishments in Egypt. You have to contact them if you want to open a casino in the country. Their website is not available in English at the time of writing.

The licensing fees and requirements are not known, if you know anything about them please leave a comment. Thank you.

Other forms of online gambling in Egypt

Being a predominantly Muslim country, most forms of gambling are off-limits to locals, but there are some exceptions to this rule. Sports betting is legal and it is available to locals since 2005, when the Egyptian National Post Organization and Intralot signed an agreement to create an Egyptian bookmaker.

Lottery is also legal and available to the locals since 1960. The Lottery Coalition; the national lottery of Egypt, was founded in 1976.

There is no clear legislation regarding online gambling in Egypt, it is technically illegal but it it’s not properly addressed by the gambling legislation. It is a complicated topic, but  in short: operating gambling websites is illegal in Egypt, but players, who visit foreign gambling websites are not prosecuted.

There are no domestic online gambling operators licensed in the country for now.

You can read more about the legal status of gambling in Egypt here.

 

Bitcoin casino Egypt

Legal status: de facto illegal, but it is not specifically regulated

 

Placing bets using virtual currencies is not specifically regulated in Egypt. However, cryptocurrencies themselves are de facto illegal in the country, for the following 2 reasons:

  1. Egypt is a Muslim country, where much of the population takes religions very seriously. Therefore, when Egypt’s Dar al-Ifta issued a fatwa (official interpretation of sharia law) regarding bitcoin*, it influenced the perception and acceptance of cryptocurrencies in Egypt to a large extent. According to this fatwa issued b the Dar al-Ifta using, selling, mining bitcoin is against the teachings of Islam, and therefore true Muslims should avoid it. (Comment: A comparable equivalent of this in Christianity would be if the Pope would come out against bitcoin, urging Catholics to avoid using cryptocurrencies.)
  2. Additionally, Egypt’s Central Bank started the process of banning cryptocurrency trading without a license shortly after this**. However, they never did actually issue a ban. Regardless, this greatly influenced the acceptance and adoption of crypto coins in the country.

 

As you can see cryptocurrencies (e.g.: bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, ripple etc…) were neve actually banned. However, because of the hostile environment none of the gambling establishments in Egypt currently accept virtual currencies. And it is unlikely that they will accept them in the foreseeable future.

Regardless, using, selling, buying bitcoin or similar crypto coins is not illegal and players who place bets via bitcoin online are not prosecuted.

Because of the complete lack of domestic bitcoin gambling opportunities currently Egyptian players can only place bets via digital currencies on international gambling websites, a few of which accept players from Egypt, you can see them below.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Egypt.

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!
