Online gambling in Israel

“Gambling in Israel has undergone major changes in the last decade. In the past, loopholes concerning the complete ban on casinos were exploited by using floating casinos or by establishing venues in Palestinian Territories. Online gambling was deemed illegal in 2007 and a new legislative measure aims to create a blacklist of websites that are blocked from access in the country.”

Despite the Israeli government’s unambiguous stance toward online gambling, many operators still accept players from Israel. Victor Chandler actually offer Hebrew language support and website capabilities to cater specifically to the Israeli market. This is despite CEO Michael Carlton being detained by Israeli police during a 2006 visit to participate in a Parliamentary discussion on anti-gambling laws.

Interestingly, as an aside, Israel holds a significant place in the online gambling industry landscape as home to many companies owning and operating online casinos or casino affiliate programs. Casino software giant Playtech and a number of its larger licensee casinos were founded by Israel’s Teddy Sagi while a number of other influential industry operators have roots in Israel.
