Zambia as a nation is experiencing a period of financial stability if we are to compare it with its financial state in previous years, despite the financial stability being experienced in the country, there still is a high unemployement rate in the country and that is the main reason why the betting industry is thriving in the land because people are looking for alternative ways to earn a living and betting is the quickest and easiest option for most of the people especially the youths.
