Lottery Administration to Amend Betting Directive
The National Lottery Administration is set to amend the directive that governs the betting market in Ethiopia. This comes one year after the administration temporarily stopped issuing new licenses to betting companies.
There are currently 42 active betting companies in Ethiopia. With the Coronavirus pandemic putting a halt to nearly all live sports, betting companies were closed during the rear half of the last Ethiopian year. Nevertheless, they resumed operations in August 2020 after the resumption of major sports leagues.
