Online Poker in Botswana

As of October 2019, no explicit legislation has been proposed nor issued regarding the regulation of sites offering online poker in Botswana. Due to the lack of online legislation the online poker sector in the country is practically inexistent. The general gambling legislation in Botswana makes only the operations of land-based poker providers legal in the country. That is why this area is considered to be unregulated.  However, beside the unregulated status of online poker, many offshore online poker sites offer access to their games for residents of Botswana. As various user statistics indicate, these companies report on having many players from the country, mainly attracted by the generous online poker bonuses and online poker promotions they provide for their customers.

Online Poker Laws in Botswana

Online poker laws in Botswana have not been issued as of October 2019. The Gambling Act 2012  and the follow-up Gambling Regulations from 2016 provide certain guidelines for the regulation of casino games, within which it is widely considered that the regulation of poker also falls. The Gambling Act defines casino games as “those games irrespective of whether or not the result of that game is determined by chance or a measure of skill, played with playing cards, dice, gaming machine or any other device used to determine win or loss in outcome of a wager for money or other valuable consideration” However, while the land-based poker games are regulated through the definition of casino games in Botswana, there are no specific online poker laws regulating the work of online poker sites in Botswana.  As of October 2019, however, there are many international online poker platforms that fill the gap in Botswana by offering their poker products on the domestic market. As online poker news sites report many payers from Botswana, regularly access the sites of offshore companies that provide online poker games, attracting the Botswana’s residents with their special online poker bonuses and online poker promotions.

Online Poker Payment Methods in Botswana

Online gambling operators accepting players from Botswana aim at establishing strong ties between them and their customers by providing them with the necessary safety in every aspect of the games. For this purpose they offer secured payment options mainly relying on the use of credit and debit cards such as VISA and MasterCard. However, there are also other options to deposit and withdraw money from their websites which include Skrill, PaySafeCard, Trustly or Neteller. For more information on these other payment options check out our online Poker reviews directory.

Online Poker Sites Accepting BWP

Most sites for online poker accepting players from Botswana count as online poker sites accepting USD. However in case you are using an online poker site which does not support your domestic currency, it is recommended for you to set up an e-wallet account on the currencies supported by the site in order to minimize the frequency of applying exchange fees.
