Legal Online Gambling Coming Soon to South AfricaSouth Africa will soon see legalized online gambling, this was don't to give players freedom of choice but at the same time they will also be protecting them in a regulated environment. Currently gambling online is illegal in South Africa since there are no licenses to operate and players aren't protected.
But a bill could soon change all of that. The bill was sent to the Committee of National Provinces earlier this week and it will soon be discussed with the National Assembly to get the final approval.
"The new law will enable people to license Internet gambling and South African citizens will be able to operate within a protected environment", said Themba Marasha, the Chief Operations Officer for the National Gaming Board. Marasha said that once online gambling becomes legal in South Africa, online casinos and other gaming operators can apply for licenses.
But there is a catch with the new law those gambling firms that have already disobeyed the current law will have no chance at obtaining a license. Marasha said, "Acts of wrongdoing will disqualify them should they want to apply for a license in the new South African gambling environment".
