Casinos in British Virgin Islands
British Virgin Islands gambling laws prohibit any form of gambling, thus land-based casinos are banned from operation. Moreover, authorities can raid any house or place that is suspected as the location of illegal activities such as gambling, betting or holding lottery tickets. They can also confiscate any money or instruments suspiciously linked to these activities. The government might consider allowing casino gambling in the future for cruise ships passing by or landing in one of the islands’ ports as long as local residents aren’t involved in gaming.
