Gambling Laws in Namibia

Various forms of land-based gambling in Namibia are legal under the current gambling legislation in the country. The Casinos and Gambling Houses Act also known as Act 32 of 1994 as well as the Moratorium Act (Act 28 of 1996) serve as the current main regulatory acts of the gaming industry in the country. This last act came into operation on the 1st January 1997 and introduced a temporary suspension of granting gambling licenses and lasts until present time. At the end of 2018, a new Gaming and Entertainment Control Bill has been drafted which was recently discussed in the Namibian parliament. As there are currently no specific online gambling laws in Namibia, it is generally considered that online gambling in Namibia is not regulated.  The body responsible for regulation of the legal gambling in the country is an office within the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Currently, due to the proposal of the new bill, this ministry is planning the establishment of a Gambling Board that will regulate the gambling sector in the country from 2019. According to Namibian gambling laws, minors, under 18 years of age are prohibited to participate in any lotto activities.
