Costa Rica boasts hundreds of registered live casinos in operation despite the lack of a gambling regulatory body. All the operators need is a power of attorney and statutory documents for company establishment. With no gaming licenses to be acquired, the country is an attractive market for casino operators. That said, it is upon the country's citizens to look for reputable casinos where they can enjoy safe gambling.
Costa Rica is one of those countries that are yet to put in place a gambling regulatory authority. First and foremost, the country has not enacted any legislation to regulate gambling in its jurisdiction. As such, there are no grounds under which a casino licensing authority can be set up, even though this doesn't in any way mean that the government of Costa Rica has completely closed doors to forming such an authority. Therefore, who knows if the country will consider enacting gambling regulation laws in the near future?
