Online Casinos in Guadeloupe
According to French gambling laws that apply to Guadeloupe, being an integral part of France, online casino gambling is strictly limited. Until 2010, online gambling was completely illegal. When the new regulations took effect, online sports betting, online horse racing and online poker became legalized. Web-based casino gaming is considered as a much more addictive activity than those however, and therefore it wasn’t legalized. Only a few online casinos have French licenses and the regulations applying to them are quite rigorous.
There is a pressure from the European Union towards the French government to legalize online casino gambling nevertheless. That might easily happen in the near future, but until then players in Guadeloupe have to try their luck at foreign gambling destinations.
