In recent years, there has been an increase in the total number of online casinos and gambling opening up in Somalia. The government has issued strict regulations and rules about online gambling in Somalia. One of these rules prohibits the operation of gambling and online casinos in areas outside the supervised zones. There is also a ban on the issue of credit cards to online gamblers in Somalia.
Many Somalis who are concerned about the increasing trend of online gambling adopt the approach that they should be regulated. However, most government officials do not like this idea as it may hinder the growth of the country. This may be one of the reasons why there are very few laws formulated regarding online gambling in Somalia.
There are some areas in Somalia where online casinos are totally illegal. Some areas do not permit any gambling activity in their casinos. The president and the ministries usually reserve the right to close down any establishment that is found to be doing illegal activities. Even though it is difficult for the people to get rid of online casinos, the government does not support their continued operation either. They allow only registered individuals to work in online casinos.
There are many legal online casinos operating in Somalia. It is illegal to operate them but they remain unclear to gamble for money. This is a huge attraction to people who wish to take part in online gambling.
There are no checks on the people entering the country as long as they are abiding by the rules of law and keeping the country's rules and regulation in mind. There are no offices or licensed bodies to inspect or prevent people from accessing any online casinos. It is up to the individual to decide if they want to risk their hard-earned money and privacy by going into an online casino in Mogadishu.
