Gambling in Panama

Panamanian Betting Law

By Reno Rollins

Legal forms of gambling in Panama include horse racing, casinos and pari-mutual betting. Bingo halls can be found throughout the country, and a large number of lottery venders are always present on the streets of the city.

The lottery is the most popular form of gambling in Panama, and it is played twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Profits from the state-run lottery help support local charities and hospitals. The lottery is operated by Loteria Nacional de Beneficiencia.

Online Gambling in Panama

With its comprehensive body of Internet gambling laws, Panama is very similar to the operations in The Isle of Man. This means that online gambling companies can base their operations in the country but continue to comply with U.S. law. With no military, no tax and free use of the U.S. dollar as legal tender, many have pointed to Panama as the ideal country from which to run an online gambling website.

All Internet companies operating in Panama must be registered under the Online Gaming Act of 2002. This regulation made it legal to engage in online international wagering from within Panama.

Online sites which operate out of Panama include Poker Host, 888 Bingo, Club Blackjack, Italian VIP Club, Legendz Sports and Bet Online.
