Must read

The Lotteries and Gaming Regulatory Board (LGRB) has confiscated illegal betting machines and issued a stern warning to managers of betting centres to stop using such machines that are sneaked into the country illegally.

The LRGB also said that besides the illegal machines, there a number of unlicensed betting centres that are being closed across the country.

“This exercise is part of the continuous countrywide compliance enforcement exercise. It is to cover the rest of Uganda outside the Kampala metropolitan area. We are everywhere concurrently,” Jonathan Kyeyune, the head of Public and Corporate Affairs, said.

According to Kyeyune, there are seven teams are out in the field, one covering the Northern region from Kamdini to Lira and two teams covering Mpigi to Kanungu. He said another team will conduct inspection from Luwero through Masindi to Hoima and Kagadi.

The other two groups are in the Eastern region one going through Mbale to Malaba and another taking the Soroti-Kumi region.

The board has another team from Mityana all the way to Kasese and this team will handle all the districts that are along this route, Kyeyune said.

“We are targeting illegal operators, non-compliant  operators…basically all compliance issues…licenses, security, display of notices, premises hygiene, operational hours among others,” he said.
