Horse racing is legal in Bangladesh because of the predominant Islamic influence. Many Islamic countries have a deep adoration for horses and horse races, as they consider it as the sports of kings. Hence, the Bangladesh Government has decided to make an exception for horse racing bets, making it legalized.
Although all kinds of gambling activities, except horse racing and lottery, are illegal in the country, the law is much weaker, when it comes to regulating online gambling. Since there are no mentioned regulations and penalties for online casino players, many sites are accepting players from Bangladesh territory. Besides, punters from this country are thoroughly enjoying exciting games from these offshore online casinos.
Because of the prohibition from the Bangladeshi government, no land-based casinos can operate within the Bangladesh borders. Hence, for gamble loving Bangladeshis, online offshore casinos are the only option to enjoy multiple gambling variants.
Gambling variants like video slot machines, video poker, scratch card games, and table game variants like poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat and more, are largely played by the Bangladeshi gamble lovers.
