Tanzania Gambling Guide (on the picture: Le Grande Casino, in Dar es-Salaam, the largest city of Tanzania)

Summary: Gambling is legal in Tanzania since 1967 (officially the United Republic of Tanzania, a bigger African country with a population of around 62 million, formerly a British colony, the country, where Mount Kilimanjaro Africa’s highest mountain is located).

Online gambling is legal as well since 2013.

You can find a list of online gambling websites, which accept players from Tanzania by scrolling below, or click here to jump to that list:

History of Gambling in Tanzania - click to expand

1963: Independence from the United Kingdom.

1963 – 1967: The legal status of gambling between the independence of the country and the publication of the first Tanzanian gambling act in 1967 is unknown (comment: we would describe it as “not yet regulated”).

1967: Gambling was first officially legalized in 1967 with the Pools and Lotteries Act7, which legalized lottery and lottery-like games.

1974:  The National Lotteries Act of 1974 overhauled and monopolized the lottery sector and introduced the now defunct Tanzanian national lottery.

The lottery sector was eventually liberalized once more, sometime between 1992 and 2003 (exact date unknown).

1992: The National Investment (Promotion and Protection) (Amendment) Act of 1992 and the Tanzania Investment Act of 1997 legalized casinos.

These acts allowed hotels to add casinos to their operations if certain requirements were met.

2003: The 2003 Gaming Act entirely overhauled the sector, legalized more forms of gambling (including online gambling), introduced stricter more thorough regulations.

The Gaming Act (and its’ subsequent amendments) act as the main piece of the gambling legislation.

2012: Online gambling is legalized as well with the 2012 Gaming (Internet Gaming) Regulations, effective from 2013.

2013: The first online gambling licence is issued in Tanzania, to iplay8casino.com.

Gambling is legal in Tanzania since 1967 (legalized with the 1967 Pools and Lotteries Act). 

The main piece of the gambling legislation nowadays is the 2019 Revised Gaming Act of Tanzania9 (which replaced the old 2003 Gaming Act1), and its’ amendments2.

Based on the types of the available licences, all the main form of gambling are legal (details can be found below, in the Tanzania gambling licensing section).

Despite the size of the country (62 million, the most populous Sub-Saharan African country) the gambling sector was rather small prior to 2007. According to the Gambling Board of Tanzania it only consisted of 8 casinos (and 219 gaming machines in slot halls outside of the casinos), no domestic online gambling companies, and the national lottery.

UPDATE: However, the gambling sector underwent a rapid expansion since then and it is responsible for 3% of the GP and employs 20,000 people. There are even domestic internet gambling companies in Tanzania.

Online gambling is also legal since 2013, according to the Gaming (Internet Gaming) Regulations8, which were first published in 2012 (in force since 2013, prior to 2013 online gambling licences were  not issued).

/Comment: The 2019 revised edition already includes online gambling regulations. Consequently internet gambling was legalized between 2003 and 2019. However, the only thing we managed to uncover was the first online gambling licence was issued in 2013. That is why we are using 2013 as the date of legalization./

Due to issues with the licensing system, and lack of specific regulation, digital gambling licenses were not issued by the Gambling Board of Tanzania until 2013.

Additionally, Tanzania had a very low internet usage rate at that time, in 2014 it was only 14.9%3, which made the operation of Tanzania internet wagering companies prior to 2013 unfeasible.

UPDATE 2022: However, as of 2022 the internet penetration rate is 50%4 and there are multiple Tanzanian internet betting companies active in the country.

The first ever online gambling site that was awarded with a Tanzanian online gambling licence is iplay8casino.com (UPDATE: defunct), which began operating in 2013 and others soon followed.

All the main forms of online gambling are legal in Tanzania.

/Comment: The gambling laws mentioned on this page apply to the semi-autonomous province of Zanzibar as well, officially. However, Zanzibar is 99% Muslim, therefore gambling activities are looked upon less favourably in the province than on the mainland. However, gambling is officially still legal in Zanzibar./

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Tanzanian players.

 

Can tourists play online from Tanzania?

Yes, the laws discussed on this webpage only apply to Tanzania citizens, and they do not apply to tourists. Tourists (expats, non-citizens, illegal migrants) can play online freely.

 

Betting on blood sports in Tanzania

All forms of blood sports are officially illegal in Tanzania.

Betting on blood sports is also illegal.

 

Tanzania’s tourism and hospitality sector is still rather underdeveloped considering the country’s size and beneficial location.

Tanzania only receives approximately 1 million visitors per year, which is an above average value by Southern African standards (mostly from nearby South Africa)5, but it a low value by global standards.

This explains the low number of casinos in the country, especially in the countryside (details can be found below, in the Tanzania casino gambling sector).

UPDATE COVID-19: However, the global pandemic badly affected the Tanzanian tourism and hospitality sector. The number of visitors has fallen to 365 K per year (1/3 of the pre-pandemic value).

If you are thinking about visiting the underappreciated African country you can get an idea of what to expect by watching the video below:

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in Tanzania

Casinos in Tanzania: legal since 1992, operators require a licence

Online casino gambling in Tanzania: legal since 2013, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Tanzania since 1992.

Casinos were legalized by the 1992 National Investment (Promotion and Protection) (Amendment) Act.

Although this has taken quite some time, the legalization had the desired effect (in 1992 there weren’t any casinos, in 2007 there were 8 casinos attached to hotels, and in 2022 there are now 15 casino hotels, despite the global pandemic).

Currently casino gambling is regulated by the 2019 Revised Edition of the 2003 Gaming Act. Licenses are issued to operators by the Gaming Board of Tanzania.

You can read more about the casino sector of Tanzania, and you can find a list of all casino venues here, with info about the address, number and types of games, entrance fee, dress code, and with a video of each one etc…

Online casinos are legal as well.

Online gambling is also legal in the country. The first operator to receive a license was iplay8casino.com in 2013.

Since then many other online casino licences have been issued to both domestic and international casino companies (with Tanzanian subsidiaries).

The online casinos below accept players from Tanzania.

Bingo in Tanzania

Bingo halls in Tanzania: legal, operators require a licence

Online bingo in Tanzania: legal, operators require a licence

 

Bingo is definitely legal in Tanzania and gambling companies can apply for a bingo licence.

It is unknown how many bingo halls there are in Tanzania, because most of them don1t appear to have any form of online presence, but there are definitely a few bingo halls in Tanzania, e.g.: Bingo Hall at Morogoro, Upanga Club etc….

/Comment: Very little information is available online about the Tanzanian bingo sector.

If you are from Tanzania, and if you know anything about the bingo sector in your country please leave a message in the comments section below. Thank you./ 

Online bingo is also legal. However, it seems like it is only possible to conduct bingo over the internet with an internet casino licence. There doesn’t appear to be any way to acquire a standalone digital bingo licence from the gambling authority.

Licensed gambling websites can accept Tanzanian bingo players. However, due to the small market and the low value of Tanzanian players very few (if any) companies currently allow Tanzanians to play bingo online. The few we have managed to find you can see below.

The following bingo websites accept players from Tanzania.

Poker in Tanzania

Poker halls in Tanzania: legal since 1992, operators require a licence

Online poker in Tanzania: legal since 2013, operators require a licence

 

Poker is legal in Tanzania since the legalization of casinos in 1992.

Many of the licensed brick and mortar casinos in Tanzania offer various kinds of poker games to their players (mostly banking poker, but a few of the biggest venues have poker rooms, where players can play non-banking poker against each other during cash games, or in tournaments).

Online poker is also legla. However, similarly to digital bingo, online poker also requires an online casino licence, and there is no standalone digital poker licence that companies could attain.

There are no domestic Tanzanian internet poker platforms, which is indicative of the small size, and low popularity of this competitive card game in the country.

Licensed internet poker networks can accept Tanzanian players.

The following online poker sites accept players from Tanzania.

Sports Betting in Tanzania

Bookmakers, betting shops in Tanzania: legal since 1967, operators require a licence

Online sports betting in Tanzania: legal since 2013, operators require a licence

 

Sports betting is legal in Tanzania since 1967 (it was among the first forms of wagering to be legalized, alongside lottery).

There are multiple different types of betting licences a company can acquire (betting shop, bookmaker, betting terminal licence).

Unlike in many African countries sports betting is not a monopoly of the government, and private bookmakers, domestic and foreign, are welcome. This has led to a thriving betting scene in the country with many bookmakers (sports betting is the most popular form of wagering in the country).

There are hundreds of betting shops throughout the country, although, most of them are located in and around the big cities, and very few of them are located in the poor countryside.

Some international betting companies have also established a presence in the Tanzanian market.

Online sports is also legal in Tanzania.

Digital sportsbooks can acquire a licence in the country, and licensed betting websites can accept Tanzanian bettors.

The online sportsbooks below accept punters from Tanzania.

Lottery in Tanzania

Lottery in Tanzania: legal since 1967, operators require a licence

Online lottery in Tanzania: illegal

 

Lottery is legal in Tanzania since the passing of the 1967 Pools and Lotteries Act.

Unlike in most African countries the lottery is not a monopoly of the state. However, this was not always the case.

In 1974, with the passing of the National Lotteries Act the government of Tanzania monopolized the sector and established the National Lottery of Tanzania (called Bahati Nasibu Ya Taifa, currently operated by Murhandziwa Limited, a Tanzania registered subsidiary of the South African Gidani International).

However, this monopoly was later dismantled and nowadays private lottery companies can also operate in Tanzania (with a commercial lottery licence).

Online lottery is not yet legal.

None of the Tanzanian lottery operators have a digital platform, including the Tanzanian NAtional Lottery Bahati Nasibu Ya Taifa.

According to Tanzania gambling laws players can not buy lottery tickets from foreign online lotteries, that is considered illegal.

However, citizens of Tanzania can participate in foreign lottery draws, in person, as tourists visiting other countries, or online, from so called “lottery purchasing services”*.

*Lottery purchasing service explanation: Lottery purchasing services are businesses, which purchase physical lottery tickets for you in a foreign country, if you make a purchase on their website (you can see an example of such a website below). This makes them exempt from numerous lottery laws.

The following websites allow people from Tanzania to purchase lottery tickets online.

Online lottery platforms, which accept players from Tanzania - click to see

The following internet lottery sites allow players from Tanzania to purchase lottery tickets online:

There aren't any online lottery sites, which would accept players from the country. Because online lottery is either illegal or a monopoly of the state-owned national lottery of the country (you can read the details above).

 

Bitcoin gambling in Tanzania

Bitcoin wagering in Tanzania: not regulated

 

Bitcoin gambling is not yet regulated in Tanzania.

There is no mention of digital currencies in any of Tanzania’s gambling acts.

Bitcoin and virtual currencies themselves are also not yet regulated in the country. As a result none of the domestic Tanzania licensed gambling companies accept crypto coins.

Tanzanian players can place bets on foreign bitcoin gambling websites in the meantime without repercussions.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Tanzania.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivizing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
