Uchizi Chinula, compliance and prevention manager of the board said all gamblers using K1 million and above should be registered with the board to avoid money laundering.

Chinula said this Wednesday in Blantyre during a workshop for casino operators to sensitize them on fraud and anti money laundering law.

“Gambling has come here to stay, this is why the government has regulated the gambling industry,” she said.

She said there were fears that some mafias might hijack gambling for fraud and money laundering hence the need for the operators to register those who use huge amounts of money in the game.

“The game itself is good and fair but there might e some people with ill intentions,” she said.

Chinula said there are also laws that protect people from being fleeced by the operators through the manipulation of the machines.

Apart from gambling, the Malawi Gaming Board also regulates lottery and other competitions to make sure that winners are given their prize money.

Even trading in the Stock Market is Gambling. People lose money or become millionaires in a matter of minutes on the stock market so I guess you should regulate those too.

Kodi inu? Dziko ili tinalilakwira chani? Was this supposed to be said after the casino was opened or as a condition for opening. Kapena wina wangofunapo allowance? Mbwelera.

Gambling is mostly for mafias. Who can risk their hard earned K1 million for gambling unless its stolen money? So how shall they be monitored?

Where do people get money in Malawi to gamble with? It is the old story of the haves and the have-nots. Most people in Malawi will not have a clue what a casino is, never mind have the money to gamble in one.
