The online gambling market in Ecuador has seen significant activity over the years, with international operators offering their services to Ecuadorian players.

These operators often hold licenses from jurisdictions like Malta or Curaçao.

Ecuador, with a population of approximately 18 million people, uses the United States Dollar (USD) as its official currency.

Some of the most well-known operators among Ecuadorians include Betsson, Coolbet, Bet365, and Betano.

Regulatory Environment

In June 2024, a Real Decree was published that introduced a form of regulation for the online gambling sector in Ecuador.
