Gambling in Gambia
In 2015, Gambia’s government banned all forms of gambling. This came after a massive surge in gambling shops began appearing in the nation’s capital, Banjul during the 2000’s. There are now no legal forms of gambling here, and punishments for getting caught gambling can result in heavy fines and even jail time.

Gambia’s gambling ban of 2015 also included internet gambling. It is now illegal for any gambling website to operate from within Gambia’s borders.
It is not entirely clear if the government will prosecute players for using foreign gambling sites, but it seems likely that if caught, the player will face consequences.
