Online Sports Betting Laws in Rwanda
The Law No.58/2011 from 2011 Governing the Gaming Activities in Rwanda gives two different definitions of betting one on pari mutuel betting and totalizator bets and the other on sportsbook betting. According to the first one pari mutuel urbain or totalizator bets refer to a
betting system in which “all bets of a particular type are placed together in pools, taxes and a house take are removed and payoff odds are calculated by sharing pools among all placed bets. The final payout is not determined until the pool is closed” while the second defines sportsbooks as the business of accepting wagers on sporting events by any means or method of betting or wagering”. This sufficiently broad definition allows for the legal functioning of online spots books in Rwanda too, one of the main actors currently on the market being PremierBet.
Beside the domestic offer, many gamblers from the country are reported by online sports betting news sites to be frequent players on international online sports betting sites too. Most of these platforms that accept players from Rwanda, usually offer not only sports betting games of high quality but also generous online sports betting bonuses.
