Ghana’s gaming industry has witnessed tremendous growth over the last decade. This is evidenced by the proliferation of Casinos, Sports Betting centres and other games of chance in the country. Technological advancements in the industry have meant that the Commission increases its level of sophistication.
Under my tenure, the Commission has enforced strict regulation and implemented progressive policies to harness growth of the gaming industry towards national development. The Commission will continue to focus on excellent leadership, high quality regulatory services, good governance and to ensure responsible gaming practices.
My vision is to make the Commission a leading gaming regulator in Africa and around the world
