The gaming industry in Gabon is regulated, at least in part, unlike many other African nations. In addition to being legal, land-based gaming is also extensively accessible. Land-based gambling is governed by the Réglementation Générale des Jeux de Hasard legislation. This statute describes the process of obtaining a casino license and the taxation procedure. Operators must give the Gabon budget 4.5 percent of their annual income if they wish to launch a physical XAF casino.
Gamblers focus their attention on the worldwide legal online casinos in Gabon. Players have access to all the top international live online gaming sites. The Gambling Authority of Gabon does not currently provide online gambling licenses, and there are no rules governing internet gambling in Gabon.
