Guatemala is one of the countries in the world with the funniest attitude towards gambling. The Central American nation has laws that make gaming legal and illegal at the same time. The law states that gambling is banned, but operators can practice if they get a license from the Ministry of Interior. That's pretty much what every other business does, no?
Due to these contradictory laws, betting and casino gambling is alive and well in the 17-million population country. Roulette is one of the most popular games both in land-based and online casinos.
The introduction of live online roulette has made the game's popularity spike even further. People enjoy playing remotely but having the same experience they would have if they visited a physical casino. That 65% of the country's population has access to the internet has helped the game to spread.
The straightforwardness of the game is also a big factor in its popularity. Players just activate the 'Live Roulette' option on the gaming site menu and voila! They are inside the casino. They can place bets, interact with the dealer and receive payments, all from the comfort of their couch. The whole experience is livelier than plain online roulette.
