Betting Control and Licensing Board

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB) governs the authorization of lotteries and prize competition as well as eradication of illegal gambling activities in Kenya. It was established through an Act of Parliament (Chapter 131 Laws of Kenya of 1966). On 1 July 2019, the Betting Control and Licensing Board postponed renewing the licenses of eight sports betting operators,[1] including Sportpesa, Betin and Betway which controlled 85% of the total betting market in Kenya.[2]
