Online gambling is a billion dollar industry that originated in the early 1990s, and today there are thousands of online gambling companies with hundreds of millions customers from all over the world.
While sports betting and casino games have a huge popularity all around the world, the African market is determined by professionals as not yet developed. However, Uganda is one of the first countries in Africa to develop gambling more seriously. It all began in 2004, when the national lottery and casino operators started their activities. Three years later, in 2007, sports betting came into the spotlight, mainly due to the growing interest in European football and English Premier League in particular. Sport Betting Africa was the first sports betting operator to launch in the country.
Of course, even before that the Ugandans have bet on various gambling games, though not so large. The first legal framework in this field dates back to 1967 and 1968 when the National Lotteries Act and the Gaming and Pool Betting (Control and Taxation) Act were adopted. They were merged and updated in 2013, and now the law is called Lotteries and Gaming Bill. It also imposed a license fee on all gambling operators who want to obtain a $ 3,500 license. The gambling sector is also one of the most serious sources of revenue for the republican budget, with about 15 billion schilling annually.
