Gambling Laws in Honduras

Land-based gambling in Honduras is legal in much of its variety. The Honduran gambling legislation is composed of several laws among which the central place is taken by The Law 488-1977 (Ley de Casinos, Juegos de Envite o Azar) which regulates all sorts of land-based games of chance in the country. This law, however, does not prescribe special regulations for online gambling in Honduras. Thus, online gambling in Honduras remains widely unregulated. Due to the unregulated status, there are various central and South American gaming providers, especially sportsbooks that target players in Honduras. The official body supervising the functioning of the land-based gambling sector is the General Directorate for Games of Chance and Draws (Dirección General de Juegos y Sorteos). According to Honduras gambling laws minors, under 18 years of age are prohibited to participate in gambling activities.

Online lottery in Honduras

The Honduran lottery is the most developed gambling provider in the country operating the market. Its origin date back to 1832 when it was founded by Marco Aurelio Soto. In 1876 it was taken under control of the Honduran presidency and was renamed Loteria del Hospital General de Tegucigalpa, changing also its main purpose towards collecting funds for running the general hospital in the capital. In 1957 the military government made changes in the structuring of the lottery, changing again its name into Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI), under which name it is currently active. In the same year, PANI launched the two most famous lottery games in Honduras: the minor lottery called La Chica and the mayor lottery called “La Grande”. Until today these are the two favorite gambling games of Hondurans. However, PANI has not introduced a possibility for playing online lotteries in Honduras, as of March 2019. As there are no specific Honduran online lottery laws, the online lotto sector in the country is rather unregulated, with many unlicensed international lotto sites still having free access to the Honduras market.
