LA

Lao Peoples Democratic Republic

Moderate

Laos is a yellow-level online gambling jurisdiction where some types of gambling are allowed for certain individuals.

Laos is located in southern Asia. It borders China to the north, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, Thailand to the south-west and Myanmar to the west.

Overview

Laos might be one of the most complicated jurisdictions in the world when it comes to the practical effects of its regulations for online gambling. On the most basic level, gambling is illegal in the country, and this is generally understood to extend to Internet wagers as well. However, tourists and foreigners are allowed to gamble. What's important to note is that there are no real enforcement mechanisms against online gambling, and because it's not completely clear if gambling online is illegal, tons of people do it.

What's really interesting is that the legal environment puts players in a situation where it's actually safer to play with foreign operators than to play in land-based casinos in Laos if you're from there. The reason for this is that land-based casinos can refuse to pay out your winnings unless you can prove that you're a foreigner, so you essentially lose money when you lose and can't pick up your winnings when you win.

Licensing

The licensing situation for online gambling sites in Laos is tricky at best. Land-based casinos are able to offer online services, but there aren't any widely-available sites through a standardized licensing process like what you'd find in many other countries. What's more is that there doesn't seem to be any serious policing of these casinos, as is seen by the lack of enforcement on keeping Laos citizens out of the casinos to begin with.

Player Protections

Along the lines of what we've said in the above, you aren't going to get any type of protection from the government from gambling of any type in Laos unless you can prove that you're a foreigner. If you're from Laos, however, it's actually safer to find an established, foreign site with a good track record and play there. Tons of people do this, and there are no reports of the government having any type of enforcement mechanisms that keep players from enjoying the games. If you decide to take this route, then just make sure you go with a site that has a long history of reliable payouts and of taking care of their players in terms of support.
