Online casinos in Gambia

Legal status of digital casinos in Gambia: legal since 2017, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Gambia since 20171, ever since the relegalization of gambling by the regime of president Adama Barrow.

Licensed brick & mortar Gambian gambling companies can operate internet casino platforms as well.

Many of the Gambian bookmakers (e.g.: Bwinners, the country’s biggest bookmaker) also operate online casinos as well (on the same platforms, they have sports betting and casino games side by side).

Interesting fact: Interestingly, most of the Gambian online casinos are operated by lottery and sports betting companies and the land-based casinos of the country are not the ones, who usually operate digital casinos (details and a list of the land-based casino venues of Gambia can be found below, in the next section).

It is unknown if it is possible to acquire a standalone online casino licence, or only brick & mortar gambling licenses seem to be issued. However, because, the gambling legislation of the Republic of Gambia is not available online sadly, this remains not clear (if you know whether standalone online casinos license are issued please leave a comment).

Officially, only Gambia licensed casinos websites can accept players from the country. However, in reality, this is not enforced due to the low intent penetration rate of the country (51%3, and most people have very slow, low quality internet connections, which are not good enough to paly casino games online), the government does not monitor or restrict the online gambling activities of its citizens. As a result, Gambian players can play on any online casinos, which accept players from the country.

In addition to the smaller, lower quality local online gambling websites, the big intentional online casinos also accept players from Gambia.

/Comment: They have better and more games, because they can afford the latest and the best of everything.  And because the official language of the Gambia is English there is no language barrier. We recommend playing in these international digital casinos instead of the significantly lower quality local alternatives, which are also unsafe due to technical issues, lack of experience and funds (scandals involving African online casinos, e.g.: credit card number leaks, password leaks, phone number leaks are sadly common, the low quality local gambling sites should not be trusted with sensitive personal information)./

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Gambia?

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

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Gambia:

Sadly there isn’t any information regarding the Gambia online casino licensing system, process, fees, requirements online. If you know anything about the online casino licensing system of the country (if any), please leave a comment and help us out, thank you. We did not mange to find anything regarding this during our research.

UPDATE 2022: However, we did mange to uncover some scraps of information regarding the casino licensing process, you can find it in the Gambia casino section below. Some of it might be applicable to Gambian online casino licensing as well.

/Comment: Full disclosure, keep in mind, it is very low quality information, from a now defunct website. Take it with a grain of salt, it should not be relied on in case of a serious project, but this is the only we manged to find./

Land-based casinos in Gambia

Legal status of casinos in Gambia: legal since 2017, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Gambia since the relegalization of gambling in 2017, according to the Gambian casino gambling legislation1.

/Comment: Gambling was entirely banned in 2015, according to a presidential decree of then president Yahya Jammeh4. All of the casinos had to close in 2015 as a result.

However, the regime of the not democratically elected president for life Yahya Jammeh was toppled in 2017. The government and the country’s first democratically elected president Adama Barrow relegalized gambling, including casinos, in hopes of generating more tax revenue (tax evasion is very common in Gambia, especially in the countryside)./

Interesting fact: Gambia is one of the few Muslim majority countries (96% of the population is an adherent of Islam), where casinos are legal, and locals can enter the casinos as well, in clear violation of Sharia (Islamic) law, set forth by the Quran2.

The casino sector of Gambia is not very developed, despite the high number of tourists the country is receiving (around 500,000 tourist per year3, significantly above the Sub-Saharan African average).

UPDATE COVID-19: These are pre-coronavirus numbers, the number of visitors has fallen to 246,000 because of the global pandemic, asa result many of the casino are closed currently, and it is likely that some of them will remain closed permanently (details can be found in the Gambia casino list below).

There are only 2 casinos in Gambia. Due to their reliance on tourists, all 2 of the Gambian casinos are found in Serrekunda, the biggest Gambian city, and there aren’t any in Banjul, the capital.

All of the Gambia casinos are small by international standards and they have low quality old machines (this is typical in Sub-Saharan Africa).

The biggest Gambian casino seems to be the Star Casino in Banjul.

Just like in most poorer African countries there is significant Chinese investment in the gambling sector and many of the Gambian casinos are owned by Chinese companies.

/Comment: It is a lesser known fact that China actually heavily invests in Africa, as a side-effect of the ‘Belt and Road Initiative”, which focuses on transportation and infrastructure megaprojects, but it attracts other types of Chinese investors as well. Chinese casinos is Africa are barely any better then the locally owned alternatives, they are similarly bad with very low quality machines (knock offs made in Southeast Asia)./

Slot halls are also legal, and they significantly outnumber the casinos.

Casinos are not really popular among the locals. They are seen as a posh, upscale form of gambling for tourists and rich people in the cities. There aren’t any real casinos in the countryside (just slot halls, which are almost exclusively visited by locals and tourists rarely set foot in them).

Gambian slot halls are very dilapidated, ugly, small venues (comment: basically just a room with a few barely working machines, sadly this is typical of poorer African countries).

The exact number of slot halls is not known, because the government does not publish any official numbers, and barely any of them have any sort of online presence. However, they are very widespread and there is at least one venue with slots in every town.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Gambia?

Yes, both locals and tourists are allowed to enter the casinos.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Gambia:

The following information is taken directly from the now offline thegambia.info website, which nowadays displays a security risk warning and it is not accessible6.

/Comment: And as is the case with most African websites it was an awful, low quality mess, with broken English, even when it was online. That is why the information below is not really useful. But that is the only thing we manged to find, regarding the casino licences./

From thegambia.info (quoted as is, with minimal changes):

Age requirement of land-based casinos, slot parlours in Gambia: Officially it is 18+, but it is widely ignored. Local and African media is full of pictures of under 18 (sometimes under 14) children standing in line to place bets on sports or to buy lottery tickets7. However, casinos are more strict and only allow adults on the premises.

List of all casinos in Gambia

This is a list of all casinos in Gambia, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment, if one is available.

 

1., Star Casino
This is a picture of the front entrance, facade and neon sign of Star Casino in Bajul, the capital of the Republic of Gambia. This is the biggest casino in Gambia right now. This is the first casino on this list of all Gambian casinos. You can read more about this gaming venue to the right of the picture: its' address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee, and you can watch a video of the venue as well. You can find the other Gambia casinos on this list below this one.

Star Casino Banjul

Star Casino, address: Duplex Complex, Seaview Plaza, Banjul

Star Casino is the biggest casino of Gambia. It is located in the capital.

It is also by far the best looking casino in the country.

The casino is considered an expensive upscale venue (by local standards), despite this it’s very small and it1s full of very old, ugly slot machines (here is a picture of them).

 

Games: around 10 slots, (outdated, low quality slot machines, not a good selection of slots, but it is an average selection by African standards), and around 5 tables (blackjack, 2 Casino Stud Poker, no roulette)

Additionally the casino has 2 poker tables (non-banking poker) as well. However, there is absolutely no information about poker cash games or tournaments on their Facebook page. They are probably not used much, if at all.

 

Video of Star Casino:


Opening hours: 20:00 – 03:00, daily, according to the official Facebook page

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: there is no mention of a dress code anywhere online, but based on my experience with the more upscale African casinos, they pretty much expect smart casual, you might not be let in wearing a casual outfit

Entrance fee: there is no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: The casino gets good reviews 4/5, no major problems, but there are only 5 reviews online, and they don’t look genuine, so don’t rely on this much

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Kololi Casino
This is a picture of the front entrance of Kololi Casino in Serrekunda. This is the second casino on this list of all Gambian casinos. You can read more about this gaming venue to the right of the picture: its' address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee.

Kololi Casino

Kololi Casino, address: C7RH+4CQ, Serekunda (this is the official address, no post code or house number sadly, I have no idea how to find the casino based on this)

Kololi (officially the Kololi Casino Complex) used to be the biggest, best looking and most prestigious casino in Gambia.

UPDATE 2022: However, the venue appears to be closed, at the very least temporarily (that’s why Star Casino is currently the biggest, see above).

Because the casino does not maintain any sort of online presence it is not known, when it will reopen, if it ever will. If you are from Gambia, and if know anything about this gaming venue and when it will reopen please leave a comment at the bottom of the page, thank you.

If Kololoi Casino ever reopens, it will be the biggest and best looking Gambian casino once more.

Despite its’ status the casino does not maintain any sort of online presence. It used to have a website, but ever since the casino closed it is no longer available. Therefore, very little reliable information is available of the venue online. What little is available you can find it below.

Despite it being the previous biggest Gambian casino, it is still small by international standards and the gaming machines are old and low quality (just like in all the other Gambian casinos).

 

Games: around 20 gaming machines (slots, it is not know if there is a video poker machine, very bad and old machines, they often break down, average selection by African standards), and around 8 tables (3 American Roulette wheels, 2 blackjack tables and 3 poker tables, unknown what type exactly)

They also have a poker room, with a few Texas Hold’em non-banking poker tables.

 

Video of Kololi Casino:

There are no videos of the casino online. But you might be able to find some pictures on the archived webpage of the casino.

 

Opening hours: 8:30 PM – 3:00 AM, daily

UPDATE COVID-19: closed, unknown when it will reopen, (likely it will not reopen, based on reviews it was mostly empty, had very few players)

Dress code: there is no mention of a dress code anywhere online, no info

Entrance fee: there is no entrance fee, Gambian casino never charge an entrance fee

Meta review analysis: The casino gets average reviews 3/5, most reviews mention just how empty the place usually is, which is probably the reason why it closed

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

Other:

Primabet Brusubi Casino Club is not actually a casino, it is only a slot hall, so is Jack Hot Casino Senigambia. They are just using misleading names on purpose because most Gambians do not know the difference between a slot hall and a casino.

/Slot hall definition: Slot halls usually are significantly smaller than casinos and they only have slot machines, no table games. slot halls are also mostly frequented by locals, whereas casinos are often visited by tourists and foreigners as well./

 

Other forms of online gambling in Gambia

Most forms of online gambling are legal in Gambia, including: online sports betting, online poker, online lottery and online casino games.

You can learn more about the legal status of the various forms of offline and online gambling in Gambia here.

 

Bitcoin casinos in Gambia

Legal status: not regulated

 

Cryptocurrencies are not regulated in Gambia at all, which means gambling using virtual currencies (bitcoin, litecoin, ripple, ethereum etc….) is not regulated as well*.

Right now players from the Gambia can only place bets using crypto coins by visiting the big international gambling websites, because none of the local Gambian online casinos accept cryptocurrencies.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Gambia.

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, disincentivizing 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!
