The government of Zambia has legalized slot machine gaming and lottery gaming, but not other forms of gambling. The Lottery Management Company runs the national lottery of Zambia; besides, the country has a sprinkling of land casino resorts, where gamblers can enjoy wagering real money on games of chance in a safe, legalized, and regulated environment. Since the gaming law in Zambia is silent about online gambling, players are free to play at offshore gaming sites.
Size of Industry and Figures
The size of the Zambia land casino resort industry is quite small. The government of Zambia has licensed only three land casino resorts, which offer a wide range of casino games such as table games, card games, and slots.

The Casino Act tells exactly how casino gambling operators can get a license in Zambia and defines illegal gambling. Any company that owns a hotel business in Zambia is eligible to apply for a casino gambling license, which needs to be renewed once every five years. The license provides specific details on exactly how many table games and gaming machines the license holder can offer in the land casino resort.
The government of Zambia even grants temporary casino gaming license under special circumstances. Operators can get a temporary license by paying the prescribed fees and agreeing to comply with a certain set of terms and conditions. A temporary license in Zambia remains valid for 30 days.
