Suriname

None
Suriname is a blue-level online gambling jurisdiction since there are no laws regulating the industry on any level.

Suriname is located in the center of the north coast of South America. It borders the Atlantic Ocean to the north with Guyana to the west, French Guiana to the east and Brazil to the south.

Overview

Some countries have largely ignored online gambling so far, and Suriname is one of those. Along these lines, they have no laws regulating online gambling sites of any kind. They also have no laws against playing at online casinos or in other types of online gambling. In spite of this, they do have legalized land-based gambling with a number of casinos, and they have a very structured licensing process in place for this.

The disconnect between their approach to online gambling and their approach to land-based gambling could continue to last if the government doesn't think it's worth the time and resources to regulate. There are two main scenarios where they could find the motivation to regulate the online sector: to protect and tax players, and to make money from providing online gambling licenses.

Licensing

No licensing process currently exists for online gambling in Suriname. However, they do have a well-formed structure for granting land-based gambling licenses to brick and mortar casinos. This has lead some industry experts to believe that this country will regulate online casino play within the next several years in an effort to capitalize off of the licensing fees and revenues that could come in with the taxing of online games.

If they do add licensing for online gambling at some point, then it's pretty safe to assume that the process will be fairly legitimate if it's anything like their licensing process for land-based establishments. They have a fairly strong reputation for taking these matters seriously and trying to keep a clean look when it comes to the gambling and casino business.

Player Protections

No player protections exist in Suriname, but since there are no laws against online gambling, there's also nothing illegal about playing in this country. The only drawback, and the drawback that most players face all over the world, is that there is no formal way to appeal decisions by online casino operators and no way to get money back from shady dealings. This is why it's critical that players from Suriname stick with reputable brands that have a long history of taking care of their players.

One motivation for regulating the online gambling industry in the future could be to add protection for their players. This is typically seen when a country offers online gambling licenses and requires that their players avoid foreign sites. It's unclear whether this is the path that Suriname would take if they regulate the industry any time soon.
