There are no land-based casinos located in Cape Verde, also known as Cabo Verde, and no online operators that have the headquarters here. However, local players do have an option to go online and choose new casinos from countries that accept their players.
Because the gambling industry here does not have a real market, authorities have opted not to regulate it. There are no laws defining how citizens may gamble, but there are no provisions that prevent them from seeking the services of foreign operators.
Interestingly, the Cape Verde's overseas population is larger than the domestic one, owing to an immigration culture established many years ago. Most of the inhabitants are of mixed African and Portuguese ancestry, while there is also a significant African and European presence.
