Regulator for gaming operations in the country, the Gaming Commission of Ghana, has suspended and cautioned the general public over business operations of two gaming companies in the country.
The Commission in a release dated April 15, 2019 warned the public not to transact any business with Lord of the Bet, which is trading as Lollibet and African Gaming and Entertainment, operating with the trade name, Safaribet Sports Betting.
According to the Gaming Commission, Lollibet has “not been issued with a gaming licence,” therefore, “anyone who deals with the above betting company does so at their own risk and the Commission would not be liable in any event.”
For Safaribet Sports Betting, the release by the Gaming Commission stated, the company “can no longer operate any games of chance in the country until further notice.” The Gaming Commission added, “Anyone who deals with Safaribet Sports Betting does so at their own risk and the Commission would not be liable in any event.”
The suspension of Lollibet and Safaribet follows the revocation of the licences of the two sports betting companies after preliminary findings showed that their operations contravened the Gaming Act of 2006.
The Gaming Commission also revealed that further investigations into the operations of the two companies have commenced after preliminary findings found that they had flouted Section 46 of the Gaming Act, 2006 (Act 721).
The Gaming Commission ensures full compliance with the gaming law and regulations, and carries out inspections continuously.
