OverviewThe mission of the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board is to control and regulate gambling and racing within the Western Cape in a manner that will provide a stable, just, consistent and effective regulatory environment; inspire public confidence and trust; and ensure that the industry contributes to the economy of the Western Cape in a socially responsible manner.
The Board's strategic goal is to ensure that the Board, in pursuit of its mandate, in respect of gambling industry regulation, designs and utilises its structure, resources and processes for effective, efficient and optimal performance of its duties. The Board regulates gambling in the province to ensure that the industry is free from the criminal element, that the maximum benefit of the licensed activities is achieved, that such activities are fair to patrons, and that vulnerable persons are provided the relevant protection. In reaching these goals the Board will maintain and enhance a credible and well regulated industry that is highly respected both nationally and internationally.
