Our primary responsibilities encompass the licensing and supervision of gambling operators, ensuring compliance with legal and ethical standards, and safeguarding the interests of both consumers and the industry itself.

As a regulatory authority, we play a pivotal role in fostering responsible gambling practices, protecting vulnerable individuals, and promoting a fair and transparent gaming environment. Our commitment extends beyond mere oversight; we actively engage with stakeholders, collaborate with government agencies, and invest in community initiatives to ensure the sustainable growth of the gambling sector while contributing positively to the well-being of the Eastern Cape’s residents.

At the heart of our mission lies the promotion of responsible gambling, the mitigation of social issues associated with gambling, and the facilitation of a vibrant, well-regulated industry that adheres to the highest standards of integrity. The ECGB is dedicated to achieving these objectives to the benefit of our community and stakeholders alike.
