THE TRADE AND LIQUOR ACT
The Trade Act and the Liquor Act were implemented in April 2008. They have enabling regulations which stipulate the terms and conditions of each license and also specify the type of goods to be sold in each license.
Casino Act and the Lotteries and Betting Act
The Casino Act, (Cap 19:01) and the Lotteries and Betting Act, (Cap 19:02), through which Government regulates betting and gambling operations, have become outdated and inadequate to deal with both prevailing and unfolding developmental challenges of Botswana’s gaming and gambling industry. In view of the above, The implementation of the Lotteries and Betting Act has been somewhat restricted to raffles and this activity is currently only allowed for registered societies which are non-profit making.
