Given Ethiopia's tricky legislative iGaming position, it's not easy to determine the legal landscape within the country. Online and mobile casinos rely fully on international offshore sites that have been licensed and are being supervised by offshore gambling authorities.
Therefore, the legal framework isn't yet well-suited to the rise of Ethiopian mobile casino sites. What the lack of clarity in the law does, is fill up players' heads with questions, as to where they might play or not.
Plus, the rapid growth of mobile devices in Ethiopia shows a need for the country's legal system to catch up with the times.
Nevertheless, although there's no local gambling authority supervising mobile casinos, players can still rely on offshore ones such as the Malta Gaming Authority or the UK Gambling Commission - thus allowing them to play at top-rated sites and apps.
