Madagascar

Undefined
Madagascar is a white-level online gambling jurisdiction because it's not certain if online gambling is legal there.

Madagascar is located off of the south-east coast of Africa. The Mozambique Channel is located to the west with Mozambique 250-500 miles to the west. The Indian Ocean is to the east.

Overview

Also known as the Malagasy Republic, Madagascar has an interesting mix of laws and regulations on gambling that makes it unclear if online gambling is allowed. In short, they explicitly allow casino games online in their laws on the subject, but there is no mention of other types of gambling aside from a law from the 1960s that prohibits lotteries. Even with all of this, there is no mention of online games in any of their laws, and this makes things particularly complicated when it comes to trying to determine the legality of any form of online gambling in the country.

Licensing

While no licensing process is in place in Madagascar for any form of online gambling site, there are licenses given for land-based casinos. This is a good sign because it means that there are already procedures and officials in place that could pivot over to the online sector in the future. Already having a licensing body for land-based games in place makes it a lot more likely that any proposed legislation for online gambling will pass in the future.

With that having been said, there's been no indication that anyone is interested in regulating the industry in Madagascar at this time. No government officials have brought it up, and there hasn't been any suggested legislation of any kind.

Player Protections

With no licensing body in place for online gambling, there is no type of protection for players who choose to place bets on the Internet. Any future attempt to regulate the industry would most likely include some good levels of protection, however, because the land-based casinos they have also include processes for players who have disputes, and these disputes are taken very seriously.

It's worth noting that there are no laws making online gambling with foreign sites illegal, so you should have no problem playing with foreign operators. However, because you'll have no form of player protection in place, we recommend that you only play with sites that have built up a reputation for being reliable.
