Your personal background.
Offshore operators of sports betting services are
getting attracted to
Africa in large numbers for very good reasons.



Here are some of those reasons:


High Population of Unemployed Youth
More than 200 million people in Africa are in the age group of 15 to 24 and a large
number of them do not have jobs. Certain African countries have an unemployment rates that are as high as 25%.
In addition, the population
of Africa is believed to become twice as big by 2050 and the continent
will have the world's
largest
youth population.
The sports betting industry gives these young people an opportunity to earn as they enjoy their favorite sports
events.



Great Love for Sports
Africans are crazy about sports. Although football has the largest number of fans,
cricket also has its fair share of followers.
In Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Kenya, rugby also enjoys a great deal of popularity.
European football leagues in general and the Spanish, English, Italian, and French leagues
in particular have African fans in millions.




Africans
also love placing bets on sports such
as hockey, basketball, tennis, car, boxing, horse races,
motorcycle racing, and other sports. They are especially enthusiastic about
placing bets on outcomes of matches, number of goals, players who
score the most, and so on. It is this African craze for sports
that makes its sports betting industry one of the
most lucrative in the world.



Lenient Sports Betting Laws
European and US sports betting
companies are fast expanding into Africa because of the lenient sports betting laws in most African countries.
In fact, South Africa is the only country that has properly
regulated its gambling market. In most African countries, gambling laws are new and
the fledgling industry is not yet regulated.



At the same time, certain Muslim-majority African countries have imposed a
blanket ban on sports betting and placing bets
on sports is definitely illegal there.
Gambling is also illegal in Gambia, which has banned all forms
of gambling including sports betting, casinos, and lotteries.





Rising Popularity of Mobile
Gambling

The use of mobile devices is
on the rise in Africa. More and more Africans are discovering the joys
of sports betting on the move. African operators of sports betting services
have partnered with top mobile phone
operators to link mobile money services such
as M-Pesa, Orange Money, and Airtel Money with their sports betting
products
. As a result, Africans enjoy sports betting not only on their desktops, but also on their smartphones and tablets.



Young South African adults are excited about how they can place bets on their mobile phones using Africa facing online
sports sites such as Betway.
In fact, Betway is one of the most popular African online sports betting sites.
Even residents of remote villages such as Musango in East
Africa, for example, can place sports bets almost for free and win huge amounts of cash.
They can place small bets of 100 shillings or $1 and win amounts as high as
50,000 shillings or $525. They can use their winnings to pay bills or school
fees.
