Online Bingo in Ethiopia
The general gambling legislation in Ethiopia from 1981 which established the National Lottery Administration, makes the operations of land-based bingo providers, legal, in the country. However, due to the lack of online legislation the online bingo sector in the country is practically inexistent. So far, no explicit legislation has been proposed nor issued regarding the regulation of sites offering online bingo in Ethiopia. That is why this area is considered to be unregulated.
However, beside the unregulated status of online bingo, many offshore online bingo sites offer access to their games for residents of Ethiopia. As various user statistics indicate, these companies report on having many players from the country, mainly attracted by the generous online bingo bonuses and online bingo promotions they provide for their customers.

Online Bingo Laws in Ethiopia
Bingo in Ethiopia does not have any tradition, neither land-based not online. The Sport betting License Directive No 83/2005 while providing for the opening of the internet gambling market in the country only legalized online sports betting, leaving bingo games outside the scope of regulated online gaming. As there are no specific online bingo laws in Ethiopia regulating the work of online bingo sites in the country, this game is considered to be unregulated in Ethiopia.
As of February 2020, however, there are many international online bingo platforms that fill the gap in Ethiopia by offering their bingo products on the domestic market. As online bingo news sites report many payers from Ethiopia, regularly access the sites of offshore companies that provide online bingo games, attracting the Ethiopia’s residents with their special online bingo bonuses and online bingo promotions.

Online Bingo Sites Accepting ETB
Most sites for online bingo accepting players from Ethiopia count as online bingo sites accepting USD. However, in case you are using an online bingo 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.
