6 Dec 2016

KenyaAnother country of the many lately, that is going to be more strict on gambling issues and especially on marketing and advertising betting services, is Kenya. The country’s parliament parliament is reported to be reviewing a number of proposed regulatory amendments for their “Betting, Lotteries & Gaming Act”. Those measures are going to be extra strict and will bring very tough controls and huge fines to the operators that do not seem to comply with the regulations that are going to be introduced by the Kenyan parliament.

The fine will be at the amount of 7.500 British Pounds up to 35.000 pounds and as the government’s representative, Jakoyo Midiwo, stated, that the goal of this measures is to protect the consumer from scum operators. In fact, Midiwo further proposed that the authority should also have the power to vary, suspend or cancel the licences. Everything will come to a conclusion within the next few months, but the only thing for sure, is that many things ar about to change regarding the gambling stage.
