Uganda has over 45 million people, almost 26 million of whom are active players. Young people are the most active. 70% of Ugandans under 30 bets on sports every day.
Despite the low-income level of Ugandans, sports betting is flourishing. Ugandans love sports and appreciate the opportunity to make money from sports betting, including online betting.
By 2022, more than 2,000 operators will be available to Ugandans online. The National Gaming Board Uganda (NGBU), under the Lotteries and Gaming Act No 7, aims to limit their number and reduce the population’s dependence on gambling.
Still, players continue to select more and more new online betting sites in Uganda.
The abundance of bookmakers working under state or European licenses makes a choice difficult. Nevertheless, excellent betting sites in Uganda with a proven reputation are still open to the Ugandan people.
