Sports betting popular in Zambia is increasing online space. It is mainly due to the expansion of Internet coverage, as well as an increase in the number of people connected to mobile communications. With a population of over 14,000,000 people, 60% of them already own mobile phones.
The profitability of the online gambling business is steadily increasing, which is why the Zambian government welcomes bookmakers and licenses its operations. The national Betting Control Act controls bookmaker services. Zambia is also a member of the Gambling Regulators of Africa Forum (GRAF). This organisation studies online betting technology and its impact on the population.
While the government initiates betting legislation, millions of Zambian people join betting sites with and without a licence to make a good stake and get money.
