Doubtlessly, sport betting is the most popular type of gambling in Zambia as sport bets have been placed in our country since the middle of the previous century. There are also no argues as to what the most popular sport type for betting in our country is. By all means, football is the sport discipline number one in Zambia and our national team has earned a lot of success on the international football arena within the years, too, including by winning the Cup of The African Nations during 2012 year which is why all of the bookies that work on our market these days, exclusively focus on the football betting activity. This focus is basically presented in the wide range of markets provided for hundreds of leagues from nearly 100 countries from all over the world.
Among the rest of the sport types that are also quite significant and searched by the Zambian customers are tennis and cricket. For these sport disciplines you will find a big variety of possibilities for a bet, too. On the other side, basketball, volleyball, tennis, ice hockey, fighting sports, Formula 1 and the rest of the moto sports, as well as horse racing and American football represent only a small part of the rest sport disciplines you will meet among the programs most bookies offer in Zambia.
There’s no specially tailored act or legal arrangement in our country as to sport betting specifically (the sport betting is taken under control by the common Betting Control Act that was put into force during 1958 year). However, there are a lot of online gambling operators that work in our country. Betway, 1xBet and Betin are the biggest and the most renewed international names that accept Zambian punters, while, on the other side, in our market you will also find smaller companies such as BetPawa, GSB or Bolabet 1×2.
All of these bookies accept bets in their own internet platforms and such bets might be placed either from a computer, or from a mobile device like smartphone or tablet. The most important thing here is that it is not necessary for you to go to any physical bookmaker shop in order to become the bookmaker’s customer or to place a bet in its system. You can do all of these things (and many more) online. This is a really good news regarding the fact that the physical shops for sport betting in Zambia are not a lot at all – especially in comparison to the number of such shops in the rest of the African countries, while in Europe they are quite more or literally everywhere. The lack of a big number of physical bookie’s departments in Zambia, though, isn’t such a big deal considering the fact that gambling via internet is both: possible and very convenient.
