Swazi Gambling Information
Swaziland allows online casinos, internet poker rooms and live casinos. As recently as 2005, Swaziland had a national lottery in the form of Swazi Lotto, but this one-year old lottery company ended operations in 2005. Presumably, the lotto is still legal in Swaziland.
Below is a list of the online and live casinos in Swaziland. The biggest gaming operator in Swaziland is Piggs Peak Caisno, though Royal Swaz Spa has a larger single casino operation.

Online Gambling in Swaziland
Swaziland started issuing licenses in 1998 which allow certain Swazi gaming interests to sponsor online gambling.
The first of these gaming interests to receive a license was Piggs Peak Casino, a brick-and-mortar casino in Swaziland. This casino is allowed to run an online casino and poker room. One thing to keep in mind is that Piggs Peak Online Casino is allowed to deposit Rand (a Swaziland currency) over the internet, which somewhat limits play to Swaziland, Namibia, Lesotho and South Africa. This is further restricted by a 2007 South African law which bans South Africans from playing on Swaziland online casinos and poker rooms.
Here is more information about the two online casinos which are licensed in Swaziland.
