Online betting in Ghana was legalised in 2006 and has gone from strength to strength.
Ghana may not be the first country that springs to mind when it comes to online sports gambling. But the West African nation with a population of around 30 million is one that loves to bet. There is a love of sports and especially football and a wide variety of bookmakers both international and domestic to choose from. The hard part is not finding a place to bet but separating the good from the unreliable ones.
In this article, we help you find the best Ghanaian betting sites. Here is the summary of topics we cover:
HISTORY OF SPORTS BETTING IN GHANA
A former colony of the British, the West Africans inherited the love of gambling from the Europeans. The practise continued for years in the form of lotteries that were operated by the state.
The rise of online gambling caused the government to step in an attempt to regulate the market.
Football drove much of the growth. The development of Ghanaian football meant that the national team players became stars at home and around the world. As they moved to European clubs, the fans back home watched them play in Germany, England and elsewhere.
That led to increased betting on international football and especially the English premier league, the most popular of the big European leagues. The government has had a light touch in regulating the industry which has also helped attract more and more punters. And with Ghana’s increasing reputation as a good place to do business, this has helped the gambling sector.
