Land based or traditional casinos
are a relatively new phenomenon in South Africa. Gambling
within South Africa was prohibited by the 1965 Gambling Act
and players had to go to the surrounding independent homelands
of Transkei, Bophuthatswana and the Ciskei in order to have
a flutter. Casinos began appearing 25 years ago and by the
1990’s mega hospitality group Sun International was
in possession of all 18 licenses.
South African online casinos sprung up in
the late 1990’s and there is a huge variety to choose
from. Some of the best
online casinos are African
Indio Casino, Pigg’s Peak and Silversands. The best
online casinos use software from reputable international
companies such as that of Microgaming, Playtech and Real Time
Gaming. There are restrictions on licensing within South Africa
at the moment, so most of S.A.’s online casinos are
licenses in places such as Curaçau in the Antilles.
The South African government will be passing a new law in
2009. The National Amendment Gambling Bill will be responsible
for regulating and licensing South
African online casinos.
