In the past, Kenyan gamblers relied only on the brick-and-mortar casinos which are quite few, and in the cities only. Today, more players are gambling online. Land casinos are legal in Kenya. This is the same case for online gambling; no clear law bans online casino gambling.
All gambling activities in Kenya are controlled by the Betting Control & Licensing Board (BCLB) under the Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act introduced in 1966. The state was the monopoly in online casino gaming but the site, Betkenya is no longer operational. The industry is dominated by international casinos though there are some few local online casinos.
