The gambling regulator in Tanzania confiscated and destroyed 24 slot machines during a special operation in two provinces of the country. According to the authorities, some of the confiscated slot machines were of poor quality or malfunctioning. The tax authorities have also identified gambling equipment smuggled into Tanzania. The total amount of confiscated slot machines is estimated at 46 million shillings. It is noted that illegal equipment was “burned to the ground” in the landfills of the two cities of Misunkumilo and Sumbawang. The legislation of Tanzania in the field of the gambling industry obliges legal entities that purchase slot machines to first obtain a license and pay taxes, and only then engage in gambling activities. As My Lucky Story previously reported, the Tanzanian Gambling Board has proposed a 10% tax levy on online sports betting.
