Online casinos in Mauritius

Legal status of digital casinos in Mauritius: legal since 2007, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Mauritius since 2007, according to the Gambling Regulatory Act1.

/Comment: It’s not surprising that the online gambling sector was regulated early on, considering that the internet penetration rate of Mauritius is 64.9%4, which is among the highest rates in Sub-Saharan Africa./

Online casino gambling is regulated in Mauritius, it is addressed specifically by the gambling legislation as “interactive gambling”. Online casino licences In Mauritius are issued by the Gambling Regulatory Authority (details of the Mauritius online casino licensing process and requirements can be found below).

Only licensed domestic digital casino platforms can accept players from the country, according to part 18, article 91 of the Gambling Regulatory Act:

“PART XVIII – INTERACTIVE GAMBLING
91. Regulation of interactive gambling
(1) No person shall operate interactive gambling unless he holds the appropriate licence.”

Using unlicensed offshore online casino websites is illegal.

In fact, all foreign online casinos are blocked in Mauritius, according to article 91, section 6 of the Gambling Regulatory Act:

“any internet service provider in Mauritius, through the Information and Communication Technologies Authority established under the Information and Communication Technologies Act 2001, to block access by persons physically present in Mauritius to interactive gambling sites outside Mauritius;”

However, this does not seem to be strictly enforced, according to our test.

/Comment: We have tested this with a Mauritius VPN, and we could access many of the bigger unlicensed gambling platforms./

The internet penetration rate in Mauritius is 64.9%2, which is among the highest rates in Sub-Saharan Africa. This s probably the reason why online gambling was legalised as early as 2007 (in 2007 around 80% of all African countries did not yet enact regulations regarding internet gambling).

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Mauritius?

However, the restrictions mentioned on this page apply to tourists as well, and they can only access Mauritian domestic gambling websites, while they are using the internet infrastructure of the country.

Land-based casinos in Mauritius

Legal status of casinos in Mauritius: legal since 1973, operators require a licence, slot halls are legal too

 

Casinos are legal in Mauritius since 1973, according to the Gaming Act1.

Casinos must obtain a gambling licence from the Mauritian Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA) and pay the corresponding licensing fees and taxes (you can read more about the Mauritius casino licences below).

Slot halls (called “gaming houses” by the Mauritanian gambling legislation) are also legal, a gaming house licence is required to operate one.

There are 16 casinos post-pandemic, at the time of writing.

UPDATE 2022: There used to be around 20 casinos prior to covid-19, a few of them closed because of the global pandemic and resulting decline in the number of tourists.

The number of gaming houses is not known.

Some of the casinos are standalone venues, and gaming establishment are not required to be attached to hotels.

The biggest casino is Port Louis Casino Caudan Waterfront in the capital and its’ namesake, Port Louis.

Unlike in most other countries, the government plays a very active role in the casino sector, through the company SIC Management Services Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the the State Investment Corporation. This state-owned company operates 4 casinos, these are:

  • Le Grand Casino du Domaine Les Pailles
  • Casino Mauritius in Curepipe
  • Port Louis Casino
  • Flic en Flac Casino

 

The biggest casino group is Senator Club, which operates 8 gambling establishments in the Republic of Mauritius (not all of them are casinos, some of them are gaming houses):

  • Senator Gaming House Caesar
  • Senator Club Mahebourg
  • Senator Club Casino Triolet
  • Senator Club Casino Grand Bay
  • Casino Senator Flacq
  • Senator Club Casino Rose Belle
  • Senator Club Casino – Chemin Grenier
  • Senator Texas Club Casino Vacoas

 

The casino sector is strongly reliant on tourism. Prior to the global pandemic Mauritius was visited by 1.38 million people per year (the majority of these visitors were tourists)2.

Tourists mainly come from Europe (in descending order of importance: France, the United Kingdom and Germany).

The relatively high number of tourists is the primary reason why around 16 casinos can stay in business in Mauritius despite the low population and the prevalent poverty.

/Comment: Many of the tourists (around 100 K per year) visit both Mauritius and the nearby French Reunion Island as well./

UPDATE 2022: These are pre-coronavirus numbers. The Mauritian tourism and hospitality sector was very badly affected by the global pandemic. However, the exact extent of the decrease is not yet known, because the authorities haven’t published any official figures since 2019. Nevertheless, multiple gambling establishments and hotel complexes closed down permanently as a result.

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

Le Grand Casino du Domaine Les Pailles

Le Grand Casino du Domaine Les Pailles, address: RF4Q+3F8, Domaine Les Pailles, Port Louis

Le Grand Casino du Domaine Les Pailles is one of the 4 casinos owned by the state-owned SIC Management Services Co. Ltd.. This is the second biggest casino of the group and of Maurtitus.

/Comment: The group is called “Casinos of Mauritius”, you can find more information about them on their very outdated and ugly website./

The casino looks somewhat neglected on the outside, and the inside of the casinos is also not much better. Even though this is the biggest casino of the island nation, it is not a very high quality one, not even by local standards.

This is reflected in its’ rating, 3.5/5, based on online reviews, among the worst Mauritius casinos (bottom 30%).

The casino complex has multiple restaurants and a bar as well. It is in operation since 1993, and it is located in a colonial era landmark building.

This is a “casino club”, which means they focus on table games with high limits, and they don’t have many gaming machines, additionally the venue has a dress code and it is expensive. They primarily try to attract “high-rollers” (high value players, rich people).

 

Games: around 40 gaming machines (slots and video poker, older, 10+ years old low quality machines, not a very good selection, expected better from the biggest Mauritian casino), and around 150 tables (Oasis Stud Poker, American Roulette, blackjack) + an unknown number of electronic roulette machines

The casino has a VIP room.

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!

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!
