Betting on horse racing in Tanzania

Betting on horse racing is legal and fully regulated in Tanzania. The country’s reputation in the world of gambling is marked by its pioneering status in the world of betting on equine sports. The Tanzania Investment Act of 1997 and the recently enacted Investment Promotion and Protection Act of 1990 marked the start of legal betting in the country, just as they stimulated much more international investment in the country. Today, the law on online gambling has been drafted so that all resident citizens of Tanzania can avail of online betting on horse racing, though at present only residents of Zanzibar are legally allowed to do so.

Betting on equine sports is big business in Tanzania, especially for the men folk who are in full time employment. Some would say that this business is a booming industry; in fact, it is so well financed that many people are making a comfortable living out of it. There are a number of betting shops throughout the country where you can wager on almost any kind of equestrian event imaginable. You can even go online and place your bets through various websites, like at the official site of your respective Association.

Most of the local individuals and establishments that provide betting on sports, also offer some form of online gambling as well, though most of them do not let non-residents place bets on their sports events. Most of the time, the law forbids non Tanzania residents from wagering or participating in online gambling. So those who are not domiciled in Tanzania cannot engage in betting on equine events in most of the online venues. The government does however allow citizens to conduct online sports wagers at designated bookmakers on their home turf. These bookies are technically registered with the Tanzania Office of the Ombudsman and licensed by the Government of Tanzania. There are also a few private sportsbooks that operate solely online in Tanzania.

A few years back, online gambling was largely unregulated, with no regulation of the operators, and a lot of people were attracted to it because it was easy money. As more people became hooked to the online gambling industry, the Tanzania government cracked down hard and issued a series of laws that effectively banned all online gambling. Though the spirit of the law was meant to restrict access to all forms of online gambling, several operators found loopholes in the law and circumvented the restrictions. Many of these operators still operate from within Tanzania, albeit in a much smaller scale than before. However, the Tanzania Ministry of Justice has been cracking down hard on such activities and recently announced the formation of a new division that will be focused on cracking down illegal activities related to online gambling.

There are some existing restrictions that are applicable to most online gambling activities in Tanzania but some areas have been given permission by the Tanzania Government to open up licensed and regulated casinos. For instance, in Dar es Salaam, there is a license approved by the Tanzania Gaming Commission to open up an authorized gaming facility and operate it in accordance with the law. However, this license has not yet been approved by the Department of Economic and Business Affairs. Anybody who wishes to start a casino, regardless of whether he or she has a government permit, will need to first apply for a license. In essence, any entrepreneur who wishes to engage in business in Tanzania needs to comply with the law and follow the prescribed guidelines and regulations.

The problem lies in how the law treats persons who make money by running bogus lottery games. Since the late 1990s, various lottery syndicates have been running fake games in Tanzania with the help of syndicate members from across the globe. Most of these bogus games were organized and facilitated by syndicates that are based in Africa and the United Kingdom. Today, anyone can set up a lottery office that will allow them to make money by allowing people to place bets on horse racing in Tanzania.

The problem lies in how Tanzania’s Special Economic Tribunal has handled this matter. The Special Economic Tribunal that is accountable for overseeing trade and development in Tanzania has been giving licenses to various operators of sports betting shops in Tanzania. However, this authority was only meant to be a monitor and not to license and regulate licensed sports betting shops. This has led to confusion especially among individuals who run such operations. These operators fear the law and resort to violence when confronted by law enforcement officials.

Fortunately, the government has taken action and is now going after operators who operate fake lottery outlets out of Tanzania. It is estimated that the operation of bogus outlets will cost Tanzania millions of dollars and the government does not want that to happen. If you are interested in making money through gambling or any other means through a non-regulated nation, you will need to ensure that your chosen destination is a safe and legitimate location for putting your bet.
