Cyprus Casino & Gambling Overview

Cyprus Casinos & Gambling

Although gambling is officially illegal in Cyprus, due to the fragmented nature of the political system there, casinos do operate. All forms of gambling by citizens have been prohibited since the birth of the Republic in 1960. The Betting Act 2012 specifically outlaws online betting. Following the legislation the government ordered internet service providers to block 270 unlicensed online gambling domains or face €300k fines. Many online casinos were formerly licensed in Cypress but article 79 of the law outlawed them. The only exceptions are fixed odds sports betting and lottery style gambling provided by the Greek state monopoly of OPAP, controlled by world lottery giant G-Tech.

Plans are in the works for a single legal casino to  most likely be built in Nicosia. However the mayors of all five districts are fighting the proposal and insisting on at least one casino per district. There are reportedly over 20 illegal casinos operating in Cyprus, but the term “illegal” may depend on your political beliefs. Although international law regards the Republic of Cypress to be the legitimate government of the entire island, the northern part is de facto controlled by Turkey and refers to itself as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. This is where the casinos are to be found.
