Online Poker in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The poker scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina is limited, with only a few poker tables in the country’s casinos. Yet, there is the Asocijcija poker igračaBiH (APIBIH), a non-profit organization that promotes the game, by organizing events such as the BH Poker League and the BH Poker Cup.
While the rules in the land-based Grand Casino in Republika Srpska are more strict - players can only compete against the casino and not each other - this entity is the only one that regulates online poker sites in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Online Poker Laws in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Although there are no separate Bosnian online poker laws, the general regulations of gambling in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) and in the Republika Srpska apply to this game too.
There are currently three licensed websites in the Bosnian Serb entity. However, online poker news sites report that the traffic on those is considerably small. This is why players seek to access international online poker sites, as they can play for higher stakes and in a lot more competitive environments. And even though Bosnians from the FBiH are not able to play on domestic websites, they can too access some of the largest poker rooms in the world.
