In Latin America, where's the online gambling legal:

Only a few Latin countries allow online gambling. Below are a few of them:



Colombia made online gambling, including sports betting & online casinos, legal in 2016. Since then, the industry has exploded, bringing in $19.6 Mn for the government in 2019. Colombia's internet gambling profits are driven by sports betting, as they are in many other sports-loving countries.


Argentina & Brazil are two countries that share a border.

Legalizing online gambling is a provincial affair in Argentina. Mobile betting is legal in 14 of the country's 24 jurisdictions, with some also allowing online casinos. iGaming is a $2.4 Bn industry, according to our study report. After years of protest, Latin America's most populous country authorized internet gambling in 2018. Licensing attempts have been reluctant to take off, but the business is likely to exceed $1 Bn in the coming years.


Mexico, Paraguay, & Peru are three of the world's most populous countries.

Mexico allows land-based enterprises to provide internet gambling. As a result, many Mexicans prefer to place their bets at offshore casinos & sportsbooks. The finest Bitcoin casinos offer superior security, high-quality games, and simple banking. Offshore betting becomes more enticing as a result of this. Most forms of online gambling are permitted in Paraguay. However, the industry is modest, generating only about $4 Mn each year. Peru, on the other hand, allows slot machines and table games. Races, sports betting, and lottery games, however, are prohibited.


Costa Rica and Panama are two countries in Central America.

Costa Rica and Panama, as previously indicated, have long promoted internet casinos. Costa Rica has about 400 gambling establishments. Surprisingly, many businesses are unable to provide their services to Costa Ricans. Panama has laws that are similar to those in the United States. Hundreds of online casinos obtain licenses in the country but offer their services to people from other countries. Panama is a popular choice for investors because of its cheap taxes and licensing costs.


Market Driving factors:

Offshore Gambling Sites That Are Safe:

The simple accessibility of offshore gambling sites is the key cause for the desire for online gambling in Latin America. Many of these businesses have licenses from Latin American countries such as Panama, Costa Rica, and Curacao. They give excellent safety and service. Importantly, these operators have earned a reputation for being reliable. People have no reason to avoid them any longer.


Support on the Go:

In the last 15 years, tens of millions of individuals in Latin America have used mobile phones to access the Internet. Importantly, mobile technology has progressed to the point where even a low-cost Android handset can run hundreds of sophisticated games. People who use their smartphones for pleasure don't need to go looking for a desktop computer to play slots or place soccer bets. They only require their smartphone. They must, of course, select a reputable mobile gaming website.


Latin America Online Gambling Market



For the iGaming sector, Latin America holds a lot of promise. Markets that have already opted to regulate online casinos & sportsbooks are enjoying steady growth, while countries with favourable rules on the horizon are expecting explosive growth over the coming years. The legal position of online gambling differs from country to country throughout the continent. Except for official lotteries, several countries, like Ecuador & Brazil, now outlaw all kinds of gambling, with the assumption that online gambling is included. While it is not formally controlled in other nations, it is also not aggressively forbidden.


Bolivia & Nicaragua included the online gaming as part of their broader gambling regulation system. Online gambling is controlled on a province-by-province basis in Argentina. Bolivia, Mexico, & Brazil are among the countries that are exploring or pursuing changes to their online gaming legislation. Proposed legislation is now being considered in the latter two countries. Meanwhile, Colombia has been changing its regulatory framework in order to better accommodate the digital age. Brazil is known as Latin America's sleeping giant, but there are several more markets that offer iGaming operators options worth considering. As we approach 2021, we provide a country-by-country breakdown of the South American online gambling business.



Argentina is Latin America's 4th biggest country and 2nd largest economy, with a population of approximately 45 million people. Gambling is controlled on a province-by-provincial basis, with operators limited to serving citizens of their home province. Operators are allowed to offer nearly any form of gambling in those that wish to regulate.


The online gaming and betting industry in the country is expected to produce $2.4 billion in yearly income. In order to recover from the 2020 financial catastrophe, the government recently declared that the federal tax on internet gambling would be raised from 2% to 5%. This is distinct from provincial and municipal taxes; the province of Buenos Aires levies a 25% tax on gross gaming earnings. Buenos Aires is a city in Argentina.


Markets with a Wide Range of Options:

Another reason why people are flocking to online gambling sites is that there is something for everyone. It makes no difference if people enjoy soccer betting, video game competitions, or bingo. If people really can play it online, there's a website that will sell it to people. The best part is that many gambling companies offer all of these betting options on a single website. On the same app, user may play slots, engage in a poker tournament, and wager on sports. This makes things easier.
