World Gambling Law
While this section is a comprehensive guide to gambling law it is in no way complete. In addition it
should only be used as a general guide to gambling law. It is NOT the law. If you need to reference
specific statutes we suggest you do so at the government websites. However if you are looking for
gambling law for general purposes this section should work just fine.
Use the menu on the left to browse gambling legislation for geographic areas of the world. Try this
page for a quick chart and description of minimum
gambling ages in locations around the world.
Internet Gambling / Online Gambling Law
This is a tricky subject and has been hotly debated for years. The world court says one thing, the
United States say another - states in the United States vary as do many countries around the world.
Several countries have opened their doors welcoming online gambling and they seem to have made the
most lucrative decision. Countries who have outlawed or forbade online gambling have lost out on a
very large revenue stream.
