Gambling Laws in Rwanda

Land-based gambling in Rwanda is legal in much of its variety. The Rwandan gambling legislation is composed of several laws that regulate the gambling activities in the country. The central place among them is taken by the Law No.58/2011 from 2011 Governing the Gaming Activities in Rwanda. This law makes various forms of land-based gambling legal. It also grants a general licensing system for internet gambling, but does not contain any type of further specifications. The Law No.58/2011 assigned a Consultative Gaming Committee as a body that has a key role in advising the gambling authorities of the country on various gambling polices. Beside the general framework for having a licensing system for online gambling not much has been done in this sector. Most of the online gambling is still not regulated within the current Rwandan gambling laws framework, the only exception being the online betting sector. In this regard, Rwanda has been home of several online betting operators which are licensed under the current laws of the country to provide betting services in the country. According to Rwandan gambling laws minors, under 18 years of age are prohibited to participate in gambling activities.
