Online Gaming in Jamaica

Online gambling is regulated by the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BCLC). Jamaica offers licenses to operate online bookmakers, poker rooms, casinos and bingo. Residents of Jamaica are not permitted to gamble online.

In 2014, Jamaica amended its gaming law to allow Caymanas Park, the country’s sole pari-mutuel horse track and sportsbook, to take bets via text and mobile phone. It also opened betting on syndicated races from U.S. tracks that offer interstate wagering.

In June 2018, government ministers proposed allowing the government to collect taxes and charge licensing fees for interactive casinos operating in the country. The iGaming legislation would call for the formation of the Jamaica Gaming Commission (JGC), which would oversee all betting on the island. The proposed umbrella regulatory agency would consolidate resources and oversight responsibilities of three current entities, the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission, the Jamaica Racing Commission, and the Casino Gaming Commission.
