These days, gambling in Peru is recognized as a legal activity, but the industry has had a lot of ups and downs. For a long time, gambling was considered an illegal activity, then it became legal in the 90s, but went through a transformation during the early 2000s, etc.
All land-based casinos are strictly regulated and the taxes are pretty high. As of 2021, there are over 70,000 slot machines in 700 parlours and 22 land-based casinos in Peru. As for online gambling, these activities fall in the third category – they are not regulated. There is no specific law that determines whether online casinos are legal or not in the country, hence Peruvians are more than welcome to access foreign casino sites.
Not only that, but the authorities are also lenient towards operators that have based their online casino in the country. Most of the countries that do not have specific regulations for online gambling allow their residents to access off-shore sites but do not allow operators to be based in the country. That is not the case with Peru. The government is very loose on these regulations.
