Seychelles Gambling Guide (on the picture: Gran Kaz Entertainment Centre and Casino near the capital Victoria, despite the name Gran Kaz is actually only a slot hall and not an actual casino)

Find out which are the best land-based casinos and licensed online casino sites in the Seychelles, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

Online casinos in the Seychelles

Legal status of digital casinos in the Seychelles: legal since 2003, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in the Seychelles since 2003, according to the 2003 Interactive Gaming Act1.

Online gambling was originally legalized in the early 2000s to take advantage of the then nascent online casino industry, which was growing exponentially and was dominated by offshore licensing hubs at that time.

The Seychelles tried to compete with such huge online gambling licensing hubs as Panama & Curacao (the two biggest at that time, UPDATE 2022: Panama is no longer a big licensing hub, but Curacao is still one of the largest).

However, they could not compete for the following reasons:

1., the Caribbean and Central American offshore licensing centres at that time also operated as tax havens with a significant North American clientele (which means rich people and companies not afraid of not entirely ethical business ventures, and back then internet gambling had a really bad reputation).

2., The Caribbean countries started earlier, e.g.: Curacao started as early as 1996, when the internet first started to become affordable to the average person in North America, which means they were well-positioned to take advantage of the early online gambling boom.

3., Bad reputation of Africa. Even to this day African countries are seen as war-torn hellholes with starving children, malaria, ebola and AIDS, not something that would encourage investment. Obviously this s no entirely true, and there are huge differences between the various countries (the Seychelles is definitely among the better ones, while something like e.g.: the Democratic Republic of the Congo lives up to the stereotype), but most people don’t know this).

As a result they could never successfully compete.

UPDATE 2022: Despite the fact that up until 2022 online gambling websites licensed in the Seychelles were exempt from gambling and corporate tax. This has been abolished (see below in the Seychelles online casino taxation section).

The Seychelles is a minor, insignificant online casino licensing hub. In fact, we couldn’t find any Seychelles licensed online casinos at the time of writing.

/Comment: Rumour has it that online casino licences were never actually issued in the Seychelles, for legal reasons. However, this is unconfirmed, although it would explain the seeming lack of Seychelles licensed gambling websites./

Officially, Seychelles players can only play in Seychelles licensed online casinos. However, just like in all of the other African countries, this is not enforced at all, and players can play freely online.

Interesting fact: The Seychelles is one of the few countries in the world, and the only country in Africa, to have legalized online casinos prior to legalizing land-based casinos (which they have only legalized in 2014, details can be found in the next section about land-based Seychelles casinos).

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting the Seychelles?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country. The laws mentioned above only apply to the citizens of the Seychelles.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of the Seychelles: 

The Seychelles Financial Services Authority is responsible for the regulation and licensing of online casinos on the islands.

You can find information about the fees, requirements and the process here.

Taxation of online casino sites in the Seychelles:

The Seychelles online gambling tax rates were overhauled in 2022, and the 0% tax rate was abolished2.

The current Seychelles online casino tax rates are the following:

Seychelles online casino tax
Activity: Rate: Tax Base (per year):
Online casino tax 15% gross gaming revenue, on taxable income of up to SCR 1 million*
25% gross gaming revenue, on taxable income above SCR 1 million

 

*1 million Seychellois rupee is approximately €74,000, at the time of writing.

There is no specific online gambling tax in the Seychelles (except in the case of lottery, which is taxed at a 10% rate), the tax rates above are the general corporate tax rates, which apply to online gambling companies as well, since 2022.

Land-based casinos in the Seychelles

Legal status of casinos in the Seychelles: legal since 2014, operators require a licence, slot halls are also legal

 

Casinos are legal in the Seychelles since 2014, according to the Seychelles Gambling Act1. Additionally, apart from casino licences, slot hall licences are issued too.

Even though the number of tourists the country receives is not significant (428 K2, a low number by international standards).

However, considering that the population is only around 100 K this is quite an achievement. This means that the Seychelles receives around 4 tourists per every citizen, per year.

/Comment: This is the highest tourist per citizen value in all of Africa and one of the highest in the entire world, excluding micronations./

UPDATE 2022: However, these are all pre-coronavirus numbers, the number of tourists has fallen drastically to around 100 K since the start of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

As a result the number of gambling establishments (which rely heavily on tourists) decreased (from 6 casinos and 8 slot halls to 4 casinos and 7 slot halls).

Additionally, the 0% casino tax rate was abolished in 2022 as well (details below, in the Seychelles casino taxation section).

/Comment: Land-based and online casinos didn’t have to pay any sort of gambling or corporate tax in the Seychelles up until 2022, to encourage growth of the sector./

Most of the casinos and slot halls are located in and around Victoria, the capital (3 of the 4 casinos are located in Victoria or its’ vicinity).

There are 5 casinos and 8 slot halls on the islands.

All casino operators must posses a valid gambling licence from the Financial Services Authority and adhere to the regulations set forth in the Gambling Act.

The largest Seychelles casino is the Star Casino Victoria, and the biggest casino group in the country is the Berjaya International Hotels and Resorts company, which operates Berjaya International Casino.

/Comment: Most slot halls in the Seychelles call themselves casinos, which is very misleading (case in point, Gran Kaz Entertainment Centre and Casino, pictured at the top of the page). There are only 4 casinos on the islands currently, you can see all 4 of them in the list below. The rest are only slot halls.

The difference between casinos and slot halls is explained below./

  • Slot halls: usually smaller, only have gaming machines (slots mostly), have slot machine licensees only.
  • Casinos: usually bigger, attached to hotels, have live dealer tables and card games as well (e.g.: poker), usually attached to big hotels, casino licence.

 

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in the Seychelles?

Yes, both locals and tourists can visit the casinos in the Seychelles, unlike in some other countries (e.g.: in most Muslim countries casinos are only available to tourists, locals can not enter, but due to the Christian colonial background, used to be a colony of Britain, this is not the case in the Seychelles).

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of the Seychelles:

The Seychelles Financial Services Authority is responsible for the regulation and licensing of land-based casinos on the islands.

The licensing fees and requirements are set by the 2020 Seychelles Gambling (Fees) Regulations Act5. You can find information about the fees, requirements and the process here.

Berjaya International Casino (full name: Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino) is operated by the Berjaya International Hotels and Resorts company, which operates around 30 hotels worldwide, and they also operate a few casinos as well.

According to its’ official website, at the casino you can:

“Stay on top of all the action at our in-house casino and enjoy the buzz of the gaming floor when you are here! For pulse-quickening excitement, nothing beats the sights and sounds of the resort’s betting tables and slot machines.”

Even though the casino has its’ own webpage there is very little information available of the venue on it (it’s basically just 4-5 lines of dumb, gimmicky, self-advertisement). And there is conflicting information online about the number and types of games available at the venue.

What little is known of the casino can be found below (although, due to conflicting sources we are uncertain of the accuracy of the numbers below, if you can verify any of them please leave a comment at the bottom of the page, thank you).

However, very little is know of the venue, despite this claim. And they only maintain a seldom used Facebook page with only very basic information (which you can see below).

Based on the slots vs. tables ratio this is a casino club (casino clubs focus on tables with high limits not slots, have VIP rooms, target a wealthy upper middle class+ clientele, very expensive luxury venues).

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, 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!
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.
