Guam Casino Guide

 

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Guam, is an unincorporated territory of the United States, since the Spanish-American war, when it was transferred to the United States. Its current status was established in 1950 by the Guam Organic Act. This Organic Act lays the foundations for the legal framework in Guam.. Find out what the best casinos and online casino sites are in Guam, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

Online casinos in Guam

Legal status: illegal, players are not prosecuted

 

Online casino gambling is not explicitly regulated by the gambling laws of Guam. As an unincorporated territory of the United States, the constitution, rulings and acts of the US apply in the absence of local regulation (and in case of conflict US federal laws usually take priority) . This means, that Guam has the right to create its own online casino regulation within the federal framework (since 2011, since the reinterpretation of the 1961 Wire act, to be precise). In case there is no local legislation, US federal gambling laws (click here for info about US gambling and online gambling laws) apply, such as the UIEGA – Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006, and the 1961 Wire Act.

In short: unless specifically legalized by a state, or territory, online gambling is technically illegal (except for horse and dog racing betting and Native American gambling, which are legal on a federal level).

This means that online casinos, and online casino gambling is illegal in Guam. Additionally, the the main piece of gambling legislation of Guam, the 2019 Guam Statutes – Title 9 – Crimes & Corrections – Chapter 64 – Gambling*, lists all authorized gambling activity in Guam (at article 2 – Authorized activities) and online casino gambling is not among them (however, this only focuses on land-based, brick & mortar, offline games of chances, and federal laws supersede it if there is a conflict, regardless the intent is clear).

However, neither federal nor local authorities prosecute or fine online players,  and online casinos which accept US players tend to accept players from Guam as well. You can see these website below.

 

Can tourists play in online casinos while vising Guam?

Yes they can. The laws, rules, regulations discussed on this page apply only to residents of Guam.

 

Guam online casino tax: N/A, but other forms of gambling are taxed at 4% (tax base is gross revenue), if it would be legal, it would be 4%

 

Age requirement to play in online casinos in Guam: officially there is no age requirement because online casinos are not legal, but US online casinos are usually 18+ or 21+, it would probably be similar

 

For players, taxation of winnings from an online casino in Guam: taxable, personal income tax applies, and 30% withholding tax for non US residents, including illegals (can be reclaimed but it’s expensive, you need a specialized company to help you with it, not worth it if you only won a couple of hundreds of $)

+ 24% federal tax if you won (net winnings, amounts are reduced by the wagers, bet of the player):

 

Online casino licensing Guam: All licensing and regulation is done by the Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation. If you wish to set up a gambling business, non-profit gambling, amusement devices, carnival games of chance you have to contact them. But there is no online casino license.

Land-based casinos in Guam

Legal status: illegal

 

While casino gambling is legal in multiple US states, Guam is not among them. Casinos, slot machines and video poker machines, have been prohibited on the island for multiple decades. However, casino like gambling during fiestas and carnivals was legal up until 2017, and these had temporary casinos with everything you would except in a casino, except slot machines. However, due to abuse, and lack of transparency, regional smaller fiestas can no longer have casino gambling or temporary casinos since 2017*.

Casino gambling is now strictly regulated, and restricted only to the Guam Island Fair and Liberation Day Carnival. The following casinos games are approved and legal during the event according to § 64.62. of the gambling legislation (§ 64.62 – Rules and Regulations to Permit Games of Chance at the Guam Island Fair and Liberation Day Carnival) :

 

The population of Guam appears to stand firmly behind the restrictions: the proposal to legalise casinos in Guam has come up a few times in the past years, but was voted down repeatedly. In fact the trend seems to be more restrictions and bans, here are some examples:

 

I think it’s pretty clear which direction the gambling regulation is going.

UPDATE 2021: The Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation said it will no longer grant licenses for the operation of electronic gaming machines, specifically Liberty, Uncle Sam and Symbolix machines. Existing licenses will be revoked.** Game rooms were slot halls posing as arcades, which were legal prior to 2020. From now on, only amusement devices that do not pay out money are allowed.

 

Guam casino tax: N/A, but other forms of gambling are taxed at 4% (tax base is gross revenue), if casinos were legal it would be 4%

 

 Age requirement to enter a casino in Guam: officially there is no age requirement because casinos are not legal, but casinos in the USA are usually 18+ or 21+, it would probably be similar

 

For players, taxation of winnings from a casino in Guam: it should be taxable, personal income tax would apply, and 30% withholding tax for non US residents, including illegals (can be reclaimed but it’s expensive, you need a specialized company to help you with it, not worth it if you only won a couple of hundreds of $)

+ 24% federal tax if you won (net winnings, amounts are reduced by the wagers, bet of the player):

 

Online casino licensing Guam: All licensing and regulation is done by the Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation. If you wish to set up a gambling business, non-profit gambling, amusement devices, carnival games of chance you have to contact them. But there is no casino license.

Bitcoin, cryptocurrency casinos Guam

There are no casinos or bitcoin, litecoin, etheruem accepting casinos in Guam.

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Guam

Guam is one of the few places in the world where betting on a blood sport is still legal. Traditional cockfighting, and betting on these cockfights is still legal in licensed cockpits despite the objections of the US federal government.

The situation in Guam is also unique because there is no national lottery. Instead, the lottery equivalent on the island is the Sports Bingo, which is technically bingo game that plays very much like a lottery.

The only forms of gambling on the island are gambling during the carnival, Sports Bingo, betting on cockfights, and non-profit bingo.

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!
