Namibia

Moderate
Namibia is a yellow-level online gambling jurisdiction since it's completely legal to play online, but the licensing process isn't fully in place.

Namibia is located on the south-west coast of Africa. It borders Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south. It shares minor eastern borders with Zambia and Zimbabwe with the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Overview

Namibia is a good example of what happens to an industry when its legs are cut out from under it before the government expects it to walk. Back in the late 1990s, the government stopped any new licenses from being given for any type of gambling. This ban on new licensees continued until 2006 where it was overturned. However, the industry still hasn't recovered from the bind this put them in.

All types of gambling, including playing on the Internet, is legal in Namibia. Players have no problem logging in wherever they want with no government interference, even with foreign operators. The domestic side of the industry, however, it still stagnate after the almost decade-long ban on new licenses being issued even though it's also been a decade since the ban was lifted.

Licensing

The licensing process in Namibia is pretty straight-forward, and though it's designed for land-based companies, they seem to be open to licensing online companies as well. With that having been said, there's no real indication of what goes into getting one of these licenses or if they'll actually license online gambling companies, so it's hard to say with any level of certainty how good their process actually is.

With all of that aside, they face a real problem with their gambling industry. After the legs were cut off with the ban on new licensees, interest in the industry pretty much died in Namibia. Even now that they've removed this ban for several years, its effects are still around, and the industry is suffering in a major way.

Player Protections

Corruption has been an issue in the past that Namibia has had to deal with in the land-based gambling industry, so if they were to license online sites in the future, some time would need to pass while they try to build a reputation for legitimacy before it would be reasonable to recommend playing at sites with a Namibia license.

That being said, online gambling is completely legal in this country. Though you'll get no protection from the government for playing with foreign sites, you'll also not be hindered by police or government policies in any way.
