It is currently not legal to play in casinos in Algeria. In fact, gambling in all forms is prohibited in Algeria by the country’s penal code, which was established in the 1960s after Algeria gained independence from France.
The Algerian government takes a strict stance against gambling due to religious and cultural reasons, and views it as a form of vice that can have negative consequences on individuals and society as a whole. Penalties for gambling can be severe, including fines and imprisonment.
While gambling is not legal in Algeria, there are still underground gambling activities that take place in the country, particularly in major cities. However, participating in these activities carries a high risk of legal consequences.
