Tanzania has an elaborate gambling legal framework. Apart from the law, the country also has an established body whose work is to ensure smooth running of the gambling sector. Being among the few countries that embrace online gambling in Africa, Tanzania has gone ahead to put in place a separate law for online gambling.
Both online and land-based casinos are regulated under the Pool and Lotteries Act 1967 together with the National Lotteries Act 1974. With technological advancement which paved way for a new era in gaming, Tanzania established the Gaming Board in 2003. The board's mandate is to regulate both online and offline gaming activities.
