Online casinos in Kenya

Legal status of digital casinos in Kenya: legal since 2011, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Kenya since 2011, according to 2011 amendment to the 1966 Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act1.

Licensed casino companies can operate digital casino platforms2. E.g.: Flamingo Group, the biggest casino group of Kenya, used to operate an online casinos as well (details of the Flamingo Casinos can be found below, in the brick & mortar casino section)4.

/Comment: The Kenyan online gambling market is still growing, considering that only 42% of Kenyans have access to the internet3. Although, in the cities, where the majority of the wealthier population lives, have much higher internet penetration rates./

Only licensed casinos websites can accept players from Kenya.

International online gambling companies can acquire licenses as well, but they need to set up Kenyan subsidiaries for this (details can be found below in the Kenya online casino licensing section).

Using unlicensed digital casinos is illegal and such unlicensed websites are sometimes blocked.

/Comment: It’s unknown how pervasive this blocking is, if you are from Kenya and if you know please leave a comment. Thank you./

Some international online casinos already welcome players from Kenya and they have better and more games than the local low quality competition. Therefore, we recommend choosing them over the local alternatives.

Additionally, scams, data leaks and privacy violations are very common with smaller African casino companies, which do not have the capital to invest into cybersecurity and they have to cut corners to be able compete with big gambling companies. We recommend avoiding Kenyan owned online casinos for this reason.

UPDATE 2022: In fact, it seems like even by cutting corners they were not able to compete with the international online casinos, and many of the smaller Kenyan online casino ceased operation, including the online casino of the Kenyan Flamingo Casino Group.

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Kenya?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country. Although, as long as you are using Kenyan internet casino websites, which do not have a Kenyan online casino licence might be blocked regardless of your nationality.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Kenya:

Online gambling licences (including Kenyan online casino licences) are issued by the the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB). Their website and all the information is available in English (it is on of the two official languages of the country).

You can find more information about the licencing requirements and process here.

You can find the up to date licencing fees and other associated costs here.

You can find a full list of licensed Kenyan online casinos companies here.

UPDATE 2022: For some reason the website of the Betting Control and Licensing Board is offline for some time now. You can browse the 2022 archived version of their website here, it contains all the information you might need.

List of the Top 5 casinos in Kenya

This is a list of all casinos in the Ivory Coast, 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., Flamingo Casino Westlands Nairobi
This is a picture of the front entrance and sign of Casino Flamingo Westlands Nairobi within the capital, one of the three Flaming Group casinos in the Republic of Kenya. This is the biggest Kenyan casino. This is the first gaming venue on this list of all Kenya 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.

Casino Flamingo Westlands Nairobi

Flamingo Casino Westlands Nairobi, address: Fortis Tower ground floor, Woodvale Grove, Westlands, Nairobi

This is the biggest casino of Kenya and the biggest of the 3 Flamingo Group casinos.

The other 2 Flaming Group casinos are:

  • Flamingo Casino Nairobi, Capital Centre
  • Flamingo Casino Mombasa. North Coast

 

The Flaming Group is the biggest casino group of Kenya right now.

UPDATE 2022: The Flaming Group used to operate an online casino as well, one of the few Kenya licensed casinos websites. However, they seem to have discontinued it for unknow reasons.

It is an expensive and upscale venue.

 

Games: around 160 officially (but in reality, based on videos and pictures it’s less than a 100) gaming machines (slots and video poker, 10+ years old machines, good selection by African standards, bad selection by international standards), and around 15 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, various forms of poker, not known which types, no info about it anywhere online) + an unknown number of electronic roulette machines

The casino also has a poker section, with 2 poker tables for cash games and tournaments (at least according to casino directory sites, many of this listings are 5+ years old). However, sadly there is no information about them online and there is not poker schedule to be found on their official website.

 

Video of Flamingo Casino Westlands Nairobi:

 

 

Opening hours: 

Gaming machines: 12:00 – 04:00, daily

Table games: Daily: 12:00 – 04:00, daily

 

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no information about it on the official website, but considering that this is the country’s biggest casino and that it is an upscale venue, I’m convinced that smart casual is the dress code, just how strictly it is enforced is uncertain

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets good reviews, on average 4/5, some reviews mention that it is an “elitist casino, only rich people are welcome, if you are not rich, they don’t want you” (copied from the review) and some complain that the machines are still very old despite this being the biggest venue of Kenya, but no majori problems

 

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

2., Millionaires' Casino
This is a picture of the front entrance of Millionaires' Casino in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. This is one of the 6 Millionaires' casinos, and only one of the group in Kenya. This is the second biggest casino in the country. 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.

Millionaires’ Casino Nairobi

Millionaires’ Casino Nairobi, address: Limuru Road, Two Rivers Mall, Level 0 Nairobi, Kenya

This is the Kenya venue of the Millionaires’ Gaming Africa casino company, which operates 4 casinos in Ghana, one in Columbia and this one in Kenya.

The Golden Dragon brand of casinos also belong to this group.

It is an expensive, upscale venue, just like all the other Millionaires’ Casinos.

This is the best rated Kenya casino currently (based on the aggregate of online reviews).

 

Games: around 95 gaming machines (slots and video poker, 10+ years old machines, good selection by African standards, bad selection by international standards), and around 10 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, various forms of poker, not known which types, no info about it anywhere online) + an unknown number of electronic roulette machines

The casino also has a poker section, which functions as a private VIP room, which you can rent. It seems like cash games and tournaments are not organized regularly, which is not surprising considering how small the poker scene of Kenya is.

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!

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!
