We commit to promoting a socially responsible industry through regulation, licensing, and law enforcement.

We will ensure that the Eastern Cape gaming industry is conducted honestly and competitively with maximum contribution to society.

We will achieve this by providing excellent service to our stakeholders and through facilitating and broadening access to socio-economic benefits to the communities within which we operate.
