Casinos and online casinos US Virgin Islands

 

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in the US Virgin Islands (officially the United States Virgin Islands, US-VI, a United States unincorporated territory). Find out which are the best available casinos and online casino sites are in the Virgin Islands, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

 

Online casinos in the US Virgin Islands

Legal status: legal since 2013, online casinos need a license

 

Online casino gambling is legal according to the Virgin Islands Internet Gaming and Internet Gambling Act*. It was first made legal in 2001, but due to federal US gambling laws it was suspended until 2013. The issue was the 1961 Wire Act. However, in 2011 the Department of Justice stated that Interstate transmissions of wire communications that do not relate to a ‘sporting event or contest’ fall outside the reach of the Wire Act”, which made it possible for states and territories to legalize online casino gambling.

UPDATE: Since 2018, the legalization of online sports betting was made possible too, because the The 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was declared unconstitutional in 2018. This allows states and terrorizes to legalize sports betting and online sports betting.

Currently, online casino gambling is legal in the US Virgin Islands. Online casinos may only offer their services legally if they have obtained an online casino licence. There are currently at least two companies that have received a master service licence for 10 years, St. Croix Internet Group LLC. and USVI Host. These licensed operators can accept players from all jurisdictions where online casino gambling is legal. However, due to various problems, legal issues, and issues with master services providers, the online gambling licensing is causing some problems for the island nation.

If you are thinking about setting up an online gambling business, contact the The Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission.

Although licences have been issued, there are currently no online casinos operating from within the US Virgin Islands to the best of our knowledge (if you know any please drop a comment below). This means there are technically no local online casinos. However, individual players are not prosecuted for playing on international online casino sites, nor are there such websites blocked by internet service providers. And, even though this is technically illegal, online casinos which accept US players tend accept players from the Virgin Islands as well. You can see these online casino platforms below.

 

Can tourists play in online casinos while vising US Virgin Islands?

Yes they can. The laws, rules, regulations discussed on this page apply only to residents of US Virgin Islands.

“(b) The Master Service Providers and the Licensees shall be subject to an annual tax on Gross Service Provider Revenues, gross Internet gaming revenues and gross Internet gambling revenues as applicable and as defined in section 603 of this chapter, as follows:

  • (i) A Master Service Provider shall pay an annual tax of two and one-half (2 ½) percent of its Gross Service Provider Revenue; and
  • (ii) A Licensee shall pay an annual tax of one and one-half (1 ½) percent of its Gross Internet Gaming Revenues and Gross Internet Gambling Revenues.”

Land-based casinos in the US Virgin Islands

Legal status: legal since 1995, requires a licence

 

Land-based casino gambling is legal in the Virgin Islands, and it is regulated by the Virgin Islands Casino and Resort Control Act of 1995*. In accordance with this law, casino gambling may only be conducted in establishments connected to hotels, resorts. Casinos are categorized from tier I to tier IV based on the size of the hotel.

The entity supervising land-based casinos in the US Virgin Islands is the Casino Control Commission, while The Division of Gaming Enforcement is tasked with enforcing the regulations set forth in the law, as well as investigating any violations.

Currently there is only one actual casino in The Virgin Islands, Carina Bay Beach Resort & Casino (in order to qualify as a casino, a gambling establishment needs to have live dealer/croupier tables, not jut gaming machines), and 1 hotel has slot machines, which is called a casino on their website and brochures and advertisements, but technically it’s a slot hall. And there is one standalone electronic casino (electronic casinos is a slot hall that has electronic tables, but no live tables) the Parrot Club (+2 gambling establishments are under construction, and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, probably one or two casinos will permanently close).

All casinos are 21+, passport (for locals ID) is required, no dress code and no entrance fee at any of the US-VI casinos.

You can find the details of these gambling establishments in the list below.

 

Can tourists locals in casinos while vising US Virgin Islands?

  • (b) Ten (10%) percent per annum during the third and fourth years of operations which annual tax on gross
    revenue shall not be reduced when or if the casino or the hotel or the hotel complex is sold or transferred to
    a new licensee(s) and or owner(s), and
  • (c) Twelve (12%) percent per annum for each succeeding year which annual tax on gross revenue shall not
    be reduced when or if the casino on the hotel or the hotel complex is sold or transferred to a new licensee(s)
    and or owner(s). Gross revenues from casino gaming shall not be subject to gross receipts tax. However,

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.
