Online casinos in Ghana

Legal status of digital casinos in Ghana: legal since 2006, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Ghana since the introduction of the 2006 Gaming Act1.

Ghana is a predominantly Christian former British colony, and similarly to most other former British colonies (e.g.: Gambia, South Africa) online gambling, including digital casinos, is legal and regulated, despite the country’s poverty and low internet penetration rate (53%2).

There are a few domestic Ghanaian online casinos, although, the biggest online gambling sector of Ghana is online sports betting (this is the case in pretty much all Sub-Sharan African countries).

Most Ghana digital bookmakers operate a online casino section as well.

Apart from these low quality small local operators, the big international online casino platforms can also acquire Ghana online casino licences (details of the Ghana online casino licensing process can be found below).

/Comment: The big international digital casinos have more and better games than the local alternatives, because they can afford the best of everything. We do not recommend the local smaller Ghanaian operators, because they have a tendency to cut corners.

You shouldn’t tust the local operators with sensitive personal information, Scandals and data leaks are not uncommon in the poorer African countries, therefore we strongly recommend using the bigger, safer international operators, which have the money to invest into cybersecurity./

Only licensed Ghana casino websites can accept players from the country. Using unlicensed online casinos is illegal.

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Ghana?

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

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Ghana:

Online casino licenses are issued by the Gaming Commission of Ghana. You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of online casino gambling business in Ghana.

To obtain a Gaming License in Ghana, one has to go through a three-pronged process. To get a license you have to register at:

  1. Registrar General’s Department of Ghana
  2. Gaming Commission of Ghana
  3. Ghana Investment Promotion Centre

 

It’s very complicated. You can find more information about this lengthy process here.

In general:

Online gambling businesses must be registered in Ghana, and they must be at least partially owned by Ghanaian nationals.

And you will need:

  • business proposal
  • certificate of incorporation
  • certificate of incorporation
  • proof of payment of licence and registration fees

There are 49 gambling companies registered in Ghana, you can find a full list of them here (many of them are big international bands).

Land-based casinos in Ghana

Legal status of casinos in Ghana: legal since 1975, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Ghana since 1975, originally according to the 1975 Casino Licensing Decree1. This was replaced by the Gaming Act2 in 2006, which is the current main piece of Ghana casino gambling legislation).

The casino sector is Ghana is surprisingly well-developed (compared to regional average and considering the poverty of the country) thanks to the high number of visitors the country has been receiving for a long time (1 million tourist per year3, well above the Sub-Saharan African average).

UPDATE COVID-19: However, these are pre-coronavirus numbers, the number of visitors has fallen drastically to 355 K per year because of the global pandemic. As a result, many of the gambling venues seem to have closed permanently.

There are currently around 10 proper casinos in the country, and most of them are located in the capital Accra (where most of the tourists congregate). The casinos are generally operated as parts of larger resort complexes.

Sadly, due to the aforementioned low internet penetration rate of the country (details can be found in the Ghana online casino section above), most of the domestic casinos don’t have any sort of official online presence and therefore nothing is known about them. What little info we could find is collected in the list of Ghana casinos below.

The largest casino in Ghana is the Golden Dragon Casino in the Osu Mall, in Accra (the second biggest is most likely the Millionaires’ Casino, also in Accra). However, even this casino is considered small by international standards.

Slot halls* are are illegal in Ghana, only casinos are allowed.

The reason for this is because:

While the casinos are primarily visited by the richer (by African standards) people in the cities, and tourists, foreigners, expats, the slot halls are primarily an entertainment venue for the poorer sections of the society, and tourists rarely visit them. And because of the clientele slot halls tend to attract crime and problem gamblers, therefore they tend have a bad reputation and are detrimental to the image of the country.

/Comment: Which is very important for a country like Ghana, which has a developed tourism sector (by African standards)./

*Slot hall definition: Slot halls only have gaming machines, they don’t have tables, roulette wheels or poker rooms. They are also smaller and in Africa they are often very ugly and dilapidated. Additionally, they are not attached to a hotel and they usually don’t operate restaurants and other facilities. But the biggest difference is in the quality of the venue and clientele.

While casino-hotel complexes tend to increase land-value around them and they don’t lead to higher crime rates, in case of slot halls it’s the opposite.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Ghana?

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

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Ghana:

Casino licenses are issued by the Gaming Commission of Ghana. You have to contact them if you wish to open a casino or a slot hall in Ghana.

List of the Top 4 casinos in Ghana

UPDATE 2022: Originally, this was meant to be a list of all the 10 casinos in Ghana, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment.

However, due to low internet usage in the country, most of the casinos do not have any information about them available online (not even opening hours or address). Therefore, we decided to shorten this list to include only the 4 biggest and best rated casinos, simply because they are the only ones, which have any information about them online.

We hope you can understand, and if the situation changes (which it most likely will, based on our experience with other African countries) we will extend this list as the information emerges online and allows us to do it.

 

1., Millionaires' Casino
This is a picture of the front entrance of Millionaires' Casino in Accra, the capital of the Republic of Ghana. The casino is located within the Grand Tulip Hotel. This is the second biggest casino in Ghana right now. This is the first casino on this list of the top 4 biggest and best rated Ghanaian 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 Ghana casinos on this list below this one.

Millionaires’ Casino

Millionaires’ Casino, address: Golden Tulip Hotel Liberation Road, Accra

Millionaires’ Casino  is the gaming venue of the upscale and expensive Golden Tulip Hotel, in the capital of Ghana, Accra.

The Golden Tulip Hotel is the accommodation of choice for expats, foreign businessmen and local rich people, therefore the casinos is also targeting a similar clientele. As a consequence the venue has a dress code (smart casual) and it is the most expensive casino in Ghana (but it’s also the best rated and has the best gaming machines and casno tables in the entire country).

The casino is the second biggest gaming venue in the country currently, although by international standards this is still conspired small.

There are two casinos called Millionaires’ Casino, this is the Accra one, the other one is located in Kumasi.

/Comment: Ghana does not have actual big casinos at all, this is true for all poorer African countries./

The casino is in operation since 2005.

The casino is owned by the biggest Ghana casino group, the Chinese co-owned Millionaires Gaming Africa Proprietary Limited (Pty) Ltd., which also owns the two Golden Dagon Casinos in the country (see below).

 

Games: around 50 gaming machines (slots, and video poker machines, good selection by African standards, bad selection by international standards), and around 11 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, 5 Card Poker, 7 Card Poker) + 8 electronic roulette terminals

Additionally the casino has 3 poker tables (non-banking poker, Texas Hold’em) as well. However, there is absolutely no information about poker cash games or tournaments online. According to their official website:

“Millionaires Casino Accra offers weekly tournaments as advertised in-house.”

Which means you have to go to the casino in person to learn more about the tournament and cash game timetable and reserve a seat.

Opening hours: Sunday – Thursday 12:00 – 04:00, Friday and Saturday 12:00 – 06:00.

Dress code: there is no mention of a dress code anywhere on their official website, 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 stellar reviews 4.5/5, this is the best rated Ghanaian casino currently, despite it being the most expensive one

 

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

Piccadilly Casino is the third largest Ghana casino (in terms of total number of games).

The casino has two floors. The bottom floor houses most of the slot machines, while table games and high-roller slots are found on the top level

Interestingly the casino used to have a website, but they no longer maintain it for some reason.

 

Games: around 60 gaming machines (slots, and video poker machines, okay selection by African standards, bad selection by international standards), and around 7 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, various poker tables)

Golden Dragon Casino – Osu Mall

Golden Dragon Casino – Osu Mall, address: Oxford Street Shopping Mall, Top Floor, Accra

One of the Chinese owned casinos.

There are 2 Golden Dragon Casinos in Ghana, the other one is in Tema.

This one is located within the Oxford Street Shopping Mall (at the top floor, also known as Osu Mall).

/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)./

You can see the interior of the casino at the top of the page. It’s the most beautiful Ghanaian casino in our opinion, check the video below to see for yourself.

The casino is owned by the biggest Ghana casino group, the Chinese co-owned Millionaires Gaming Africa Proprietary Limited (Pty) Ltd., which also owns the two Millionaires’ Casinos in the country (see below).

It is an expensive upscale casino, mainly catering to the local elite and foreigners. There is a dress code.

 

Games: around 67 gaming machines (slots, and video poker machines, best selection in Ghana, good selection by African standards, okay selection by international standards), and around 14 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, 5 Card Poker, 3 Card Poker, Casino Hold’em Poker) + 16 electronic roulette terminals

Additionally the casino has 3 poker tables (non-banking poker, Texas Hold’em) as well. However, there is absolutely no information about poker cash games or tournaments online. According to their official website:

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 Ghana casinos on this list below this one.

Banco Casino

Banco Casino, address: Ramona Plaza, Oxford Street Osu, Accra

Banco Casino is in operation since 2020.

It is owned by a subsidiary of a Czech casino company, Virgin City Company Ltd.. The parent company operates casinos in the Czech Republic.

Because this is a newly opened casino all of the equipment is modern, and unlike African casino companies, European companies are wiling to invest into high quality gaming machines and electronic tables.

/Comment: Sadly African and Chinese gambling companies usually buy cheap machines (Golden Dragon Casino above is an exception), which are often second-hand or cobbled together from parts (in case of African casinos), or cheap Chinese knockoffs of high quality brands (in case of Chinese owned casinos).

European owned casinos are always the better choice if you are planning to visit casinos in Africa, sadly. Hopefully the local African casino companies will be able to compete one day./

 

Games: around 40 gaming machines (slots, and video poker machines, second best selection in Ghana, good selection by African standards, okay selection by international standards), and around 8 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, Banco Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, baccarat, pontoon) + electronic roulette terminals and video lottery terminals

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!
