He also highlighted the stigmatization of certain forms of gambling in African communities and stressed the role of gaming regulators in educating the public about the pros and cons of different types of gambling.

“There is a lot of stigma but we are addressing that through public education and public awareness,” Peter said.

According to Peter, operators should conduct thorough research and engage with local communities to ensure a better understanding of the gaming landscape in Africa and this would ultimately lead to more responsible and successful operations.
