Some insights about gambling in Senegal

African countries have been on the rise in regards to gambling and gaming. Senegal has not been left behind, although there have been some notable improvements in the gambling industries.

Just like any other country, the Senegalese gambling industry has experienced a fair share of shortcomings. Senegal is one of the African countries where gambling is legal, both online and in land-based casinos, but even better, there is a national lottery. As mentioned earlier, the country experiences problems with a lack of laws to regulate the gambling industry on any given level. This only means that this industry is a work in progress and ought to establish regulations to protect its citizenry from exploitative betting. The gambling industry, however, promises a brighter future due to the fact that Senegal is dominantly a Muslim country that seems to be very liberal about various aspects and gambling is no exception.
