Kenya suspends 19 stubborn operators

Kenya’s Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB) has declined to renew the licenses of 19 betting operators as it continues the vetting of their operations and ownership. The BLCB also left a strong warning to erring operators, saying that it “shall not hesitate to debar non-compliant operators in any category.” Aside from the suspension of licenses, the BLCB said it will conduct quarterly reviews to confirm the compliance of operators with Kenya’s tough new gambling law. The licenses of 13 casinos, six lotteries and eight sports betting firms were also not renewed.
