As stated earlier, there are numerous casinos in South America. Slot Machines, Roulette, Blackjack, Craps, Poker, Punto Banco, Texas Hold’em Poker, American Roulette, Baccarat, Lucky Ladies, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Video Poker, and Point and Banking are the main games in South American casinos though there are far too many available.
And in addition to casinos, there are many sportsbooks and sports betting shops, poker rooms, and clubs, bingo halls, racetracks for pari-mutuel and fixed-odds betting on horse races, cruise ships and floating casinos, and lottery offices and outlets.
Regarding lotteries, each country has its own national lottery which is either run by a state monopoly or handed over to one or more private companies. Some countries (Brazil as a prime example) also allow each state, province, or region to operate its own lottery service.
These national and state lotteries offer a wide range of lottery games and bingo. Well, the fact that each country is unique should be considered, so games vary from country to country. For instance, Loto 5, Quiniela, and Loto are popular in Argentina while lottery tickets and scratch cards are popular in Peru.
Sports (including horse racing) betting is also popular amongst South Americans. There are numerous shops where offtrack horse racing betting takes place and racetracks generally offer pari-mutuel and fixed-odds betting. Football matches are widely wagered on and basketball, baseball, rugby, motorsports, volleyball, golf, tennis, and hockey events are also widespread.
Online gambling, as well as Bitcoin gambling, is subjective to each country. For one, Brazil has a number of confusing laws governing online gambling but Bitcoin is widely accepted. Both online and Bitcoin gambling are unregulated in Paraguay but residents are not prosecuted for gambling on offshore gambling websites, which is the case in Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Bolivia.
In Argentina, on the other hand, online gambling is flawlessly legal and adequately regulated while Bitcoin gambling is not regulated but broadly popular. Lastly, online gambling is legal in Venezuela although the only two licensees have declared bankruptcy and Bitcoin gambling is widespread though not regulated.
