Kenya Raise Gambling Taxes

Amid calls for tighter regulation

Kenyan members of parliament reportedly approved an increase in betting taxes during a parliamentary session Tuesday.
Initial reports suggest stakeholders will be required to make a monthly payment to the Kenya Revenue Authority of: 7.5 percent from bookmakers, 5 percent from lotteries and 12 percent from casino operators on gross gaming revenue.
The move comes amid a call from prominent Kenyan figures to regulate gambling in the country under a tax and license structure working hand-in-hand with consumer protection in terms of age restriction and responsible gambling measures.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
