The Gauteng Gambling Board (GGB) is an agency of the Gauteng Department of Economic Development. The main functions of the GGB is to regulate the gambling industry, generate revenue from the industry and to regulate services offered for socio-economic development of the province. Our vision is to be the leading and innovative regulator in the gambling industry.

Gambling contributes to the growth and development of tourism and the economy in the Gauteng province. Gambling also stimulates the creation of job opportunities to the alleviation of poverty in the province. The gambling industry has created and sustained three types of jobs: jobs in the provincial construction industry, jobs due to the on-going running of the industry and indirect jobs as a result of the multiplied spending on construction and operations.

The contribution of the casino gaming sector to the gross domestic product in South Africa and to the Gauteng province has been exponential over the years. The National Gambling Board published its latest annual research bulletin with statistics for 2015 in which it reported that the gross gaming revenue increased by 9.6% to R23.9 billion. Since its inception, the GGB has collected R9.968 billion on behalf of the Gauteng provincial government.
