Nicaraguan Casino and Card Room Gaming

Casino gaming in Nicaragua remained largely unregulated from the 1950s until 2010, when the Special Law for the Control and Regulation of Casinos and Games Rooms was passed.

In April 2010, the Nicaraguan Tourism Institute began officially regulating the operation of slot halls and casinos under the newly passed Special Law. The law defines four types of casinos and prohibits slot machines and table games at places that do not hold a proper license. Class A casinos must have at least 71 slot machines and three table games. Class B casinos must have between 25 and 70 slot machines. Class C casinos must have between 16 and 24 machines. Class D casinos must have between 10 and 15 machines.

The "Safe Week-End" law, passed in June 2006, requires casinos to close at 1am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as part of an effort to reduce late-night violence, crime and automotive accidents.

In 2014, the Nicaraguan government transferred oversight of the gaming industry from of the Ministry of Tourism to the Ministry of Finance.
