Madagascar Casinos Guide (on the picture: Colbert Casino in the capital, Antananarivo)

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Madagascar (officially the Republic of Madagascar, previously known as the Malagasy Republic, a Christian island country in Southeast Africa, a former French colony, with a population of 28.4 million, the 5th poorest country in the world). Find out which are the best land-based casinos and licensed online casino sites in Madagascar, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

Online casinos in Madagascar

Legal status of digital casinos in Madagascar: legal, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Madagascar, according to 1971 Law No. 71-011 Regulating Gambling Houses and Fixing the Tax Regime of These Houses1.

Online casino gambling is not specifically regulated in Madagascar, the very outdated 1971 casino legislation applies to intern casino gambling activates as well.

UPDATE 2022: However, the government officially decided to start the process of modernizing the very outdated gambling legislation, which did not change much since the 70s2 (when it comes to casino regulations, and the country also lacks a comprehensive gambling legislation, it’s very fragmented currently).

Only licensed brick & mortar casino venues can operate casinos websites in Madagascar. there is no standalone online casino licensing process.

The Ministry of the Interior and Decentralisation is responsible for the regulation and licensing of casino gambling, including licensed Madagascan digital casino platforms.

Despite the very low internet penetration rate in the country (22%3) there are Madagascar licensed online casinos (e.g.: Bet261).

In fact, between 2016 and 2017 the licensing of new online casinos were suspended, which is indicative that there are enough Madagascar casino websites that they attract the attention of the authorities.

/Comment: The government does not publish any official figures regarding this, therefore it is uncertain how many casino websites are actually licensed in Madagascar./

The licensing of new online casino was reinstated in 2017.

Officially, only licensed online casinos should be able to accept Madagascan players. However, because of the outdated legislation, the low internet penetration rate, and the general poverty of the country, this is not enforced.

UPDATE 2022: Madagascan players can play freely online, foreign online gambling websites are not blocked, regardless if they have a licence or not, and players are not prosecuted for placing bets in unlicensed online casinos. However, it is officially illegal and therefore we do not recommend it.

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Madagascar?

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

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Madagascar: 

The Ministry of the Interior and Decentralisation is responsible for the licensing and regulation of the Madagascan casino gambling sector, including the licencing of internet casinos. Their website is only available in French.

The licencing requirements, fees and process are not known, if you know anything about them please leave a comment at the bottom of the page. Thank you.

Taxation of online casino sites in Madagascar:

The gambling taxation system of Madagascar is very outdated, but we think the following applies to internet casinos as well:

Madagascar online casino tax
Activity: Rate: Tax Base:
Online casino tax An according to Article 10. 07. 01 of  the General Tax Code:

  • “slot machines: 400,000 Malagasy Ariary/device per year (€94.35)
  • other devices: 100,000 Malagasy Ariary/device per year (€23.59)”
fixed fee

 

Even though the applicable articles of the Madagascar General Tax Code are written with land-based casinos in mind, we think these apply to digital slots and digital table games as well.

/Comment: This is not certain, but based on our experience with other smaller African countries with similarly outdated legislation, this is usually the case./

Gambling taxes are payable in addition to licensing fees and regular taxes (e.g.: corporate tax, which is 23% in Madagascar), according to the Madagascar General Tax Code4.

 

For the players, taxation of online casino gambling winnings in Madagascar:

How much, if any, taxes players have to pay on their winnings is not known. If you know how much tax is payable on gambling winnings in Madagascar please leave a comment, we couldn’t find any information regarding this in the Tax Code or anywhere online.

Land-based casinos in Madagascar

Legal status of casinos in Madagascar: legal since 1971, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Madagascar, according to Law 71-011 Regulating Gambling Houses and Fixing the Tax Regime of These Houses1.

Casinos are called “gambling houses” by the archaic gambling legislation from the 70s. As a result of the outdated laws the casino sector is very underregulated.

UPDATE 2022: However, the government officially decided to start the process of modernizing the very outdated gambling legislation, which did not change much since the 70s2 (and the country also lacks a comprehensive gambling legislation, it’s very fragmented currently).

Madagascar, even though it is world-renowned for its’ biodiversity, it didn’t have a developed tourism and hospitality sector until 2019. The number of tourists peaked in 2019, when around 500 K people visited the country (most of them tourists)3.

UPDATE COVID-19: Sadly, decades of work were entirely undone by the global pandemic, which decimated the sector completely. In 2020 the number of visitors was only 87 K, less than 1/5 of the 2019 value.

This resulted in many casino closures.

There are 6 casinos in Madagascar post-pandemic, namely:

  • Casino Carlton
  • Casino Marina Antananarivo
  • Hôtel Colbert – SPA & Casino
  • Casino Mellis
  • Hôtel de l’Avenue Casino (a.k.a. Diamond Club Casino)
  • Casino Alliance

 

All of them are located in or near the capital Antananarivo, and they are all attached to hotels (you can see the biggest 5 of these casinos in the list below).

The largest casino in Madagascar is Colbert Hotel and Casino (on the picture at the top of the page).

There are no slot halls in Madagascar, slot hall licenses are not issued, only licensed casinos attached to hotels are allowed to operate.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Madagascar?

Yes, both tourists and locals can visit the casinos of country.

Taxation of brick & mortar gambling establishments in Madagascar:

The casino tax rates in Madagascar are the following:

Madagascar casino tax
Activity: Rate: Tax Base:
Casino tax Fixed fee, according to Article 8 of Law No. 71-011:

“Access to the gaming rooms gives rise to the collection of stamp duty , the quota of which is fixed as follows:

  • 500 FMG*, if the entry is valid for one day;
  • 2,000 FMG*, if the entry is valid for one week;
  • 6,000 FMG*, if the entry is valid for one month;
  • 25,000 FMG*, if the entry is valid for one year.”

An according to Article 10. 07. 01 of  the General Tax Code:

  • “slot machines: 400,000 Malagasy Ariary/device per year (€94.35)
  • other devices: 100,000 Malagasy Ariary/device per year (€23.59)”
fixed fee

 

*Explanation: FMG stands for Malagasy Francs, which was the national currency until 2005. The current national currency is Malagasy Ariary.

However, the gambling legislation is so outdated that it lists the fixed fees in Malagasy Francs. It is unknown how much the gambling companies have to pay exactly, but we have converted them to Malagasy Ariary using the 2022 values:

  • 100 Malagasy Ariary, per day (€ 0.024);
  • 400 Malagasy Ariary, per day (€ 0.09);
  • 1200 Malagasy Ariary, per day (€ 0.28);
  • 5000 Malagasy Ariary, per day (€ 1.18);

 

As a result of the outdated legislation the gambling tax rate is unbelievably low, probably the lowest in the entire world.

Gambling taxes are payable in addition to licensing fees and regular taxes (e.g.: corporate tax, which is 23% in Madagascar), according to the Madagascar General Tax Code4.

 

For the players, taxation of casino winnings in Madagascar:

How much, if any, taxes players have to pay on their casino winnings is not known. If you know how much tax is payable on gambling winnings in Madagascar please leave a comment, we couldn’t find any information regarding this in the Tax Code or anywhere online.

  • send me a link to your website, or your employer's website
  • send me 1-2 sentences about you and/or your business etc.., something that describes the business, what you do, something that makes potential clients interested
  • send me one single picture of your company's logo, or a picture of your office, or one of your certificates, credentials which you are proud of etc... (but don't send a picture of yourself, for legal reasons I want to avoid uploading pictures of people)

The picture must be 150x150 pixels.
Contact me through the live chat, it's in the bottom right corner of the website, or in the comments section at the bottom of this page, with a link to the website you wish to advertise. If you qualify, I will give you my email address where we can discuss everything (I won't be putting my email address on the page, due to the extreme amount of spam I receive as it is).
In exchange: In order to appear for free on this website, you have to link back to this guide, from your website. It must be your website, your employer's website, a law blog or something similar. The link doesn't have to be in a prominent position, or on the homepage. It can be placed at the bottom of an unimportant page, where people don't see it, that's fine with me. And 1 sentence is enough, something like this: "We are featured on Simon's Gambling and Casino Blog, at <link here>."
That's all, if you are interested, get in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you.

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.

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!
