Online casinos in Senegal

Legal status: unregulated

 

Online casino gambling is not specifically regulated in Senegal. Officially called the Republic of Senegal, the country is located in West Africa and is bordered by Mali, Mauritania, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, as well as the Atlantic Ocean. Senegal had been discovered by the Portuguese in the 15th century, which was followed by centuries of conflict between the locals and the colonising powers. Senegal was a French colony from 1848 until 1960, when it gained its independence. French remains the official language of the country today.

Casino gambling in general is legal in Senegal, and has been since it was first regulated in 1966. The gambling law of 1966 rather explicitly describes which types of games are allowed in casinos and on what conditions, but naturally makes no mention of online casino games. The gambling law has since been amended, but the later additions did not address the matter of online casino gambling either.

The lack of online casino legislation is not that surprising, seeing as the internet penetration in Senegal is rather low: only about 18 percent of the population has access to the internet. As a result, the online casino market in Senegal is not the most lucrative just yet.

As casinos in general are legal but require a licence to operate, online casino operators might, in theory, be able to apply for a casino licence as well. However, there appears to have been no precedent of this. As a result, there are currently no online casinos based in Senegal.

On the other hand, since casino gambling is considered legal in the country, there is nothing stopping Senegalese gamblers from playing in international online casinos. Most of these online casinos welcome players from Senegal, and many of them are available in French as well.

Land-based casinos in Senegal

 

Brick and mortar casinos are legal in Senegal, and have been for quite a while. Casinos were legalised in 1966 by the law no. 66-53, which has since been amended multiple times. The Senegalese gambling laws regulate many aspects of casino gambling, including the types of games available, the opening hours, conflicts of interest and the conditions of entry to the establishments.

Casinos in Senegal may only operate in possession of a valid licence, which are awarded through individual decrees. Casinos must also pay a four-tiered progressive gambling tax ranging from 20 to 60 percent. At the moment, there are five casinos operating in the country, three of which are located in the capital, Dakar.

The largest casino in Senegal is the Terrou-Bi Casino  and Hotel. The casino is open daily from noon until 4 am, although table games are only available from 10 pm until 3 am. The casino hosts 120 slot machines as well as 13 gaming tables, including games such as Blackjack and Roulette, as well as a dedicated poker room. The resort also offers multiple dining opportunities as well as a business and fitness center.

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Senegal

 

Most forms of online gambling are just as unregulated in Senegal as online casinos are, with no clear laws. However, the government is heavily involved with both lottery and sports betting. In fact, both forms of gambling appear to be a monopoly of the state-backed LONASE. LONASE offers two lottery draws, but tickets to these draws do not appear to be available online.

As in many former French colonies, wagering on horse races is quite popular in Senegal as well. LONASE works in cooperation with the French PMU, offering betting on horse races held in France. While the LONASE has no dedicated website for online sports betting, they have signed a contract with Premier Betting, which offers online sports betting in multiple African countries.

This makes online sports betting the first, and so far only officially sanctioned form of online gambling in Senegal. The most popular sport to bet on is – somewhat predictably – football, but several others are available as well. While there are no online lotteries or online poker sites with a licence in Senegal for now, locals looking for more variety in their games are free to play on international online gambling sites.

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!
By being on this site, you agree to terms and conditions, and privacy policy. You must be at least 18, and if you are a gambling addict, or a citizen of Hungary, please leave the site.
