The Gauteng Gambling Board (GGB), as a leading regulator in the gambling industry, is dedicated to preventing problem gambling and promoting responsible gambling practices.

You may gamble for entertainment, but are aware of your likelihood of losing and understand the associated risks. You’re in control of your gambling activity. Responsible gambling occurs in balance with other activities in your life and is not causing harm to either yourself or others.
Problem gambling is gambling that is done excessively and negatively affects other areas of a person’s life, such as physical or mental health, school or work performance, finances, and/or interpersonal relationships.
