Casinos in Panama
There are more than two dozen casinos in Panama today. All kinds of gambling are legal in the country, and the gambling industry has been stable there for many years. Most of Panama's 28 casinos are located in or near Panama City. Many casinos in Panama only offer slot machines and are therefore more like small gambling halls than proper casinos. Larger gambling venues will offer a wider range of game machines along with table games like Blackjack and Roulette. Each of the casinos in Panama is privately owned, though all are strictly regulated and controlled by the Junto de Control de Juegos, which is Panama's Gaming Commission, part of the Ministry of Finance.
Online Casinos in Panama
Panama also offers a wide range of internet casinos, accessible to both locals and to foreign gamblers. Since 2002, the government of Panama has been issuing licenses that allow companies to offer online gambling services form websites hosted in Panama. The companies operate tax-free when dealing with foreign customers, but many also allow players in Panama to join and play online. There are no restrictions on players using foreign online casinos in Panama, so this is another good option. There are hundreds of foreign casinos online, and some even offer Spanish support for players in Latin America.
