The gaming industry in South Africa is a high potential one, and it is a sincere hope that online gambling gets properly regulated locally soon. The lack of enforcement of existing South African gambling laws, particularly in the online casino space, has resulted in a large number of dodgy, fly-by-night casino operators. A regulated gambling industry would result in better protected consumers with some recourse to the state if they are cheated.
An added advantage of gambling regulation is, of course, that the government actually benefits from a huge increase in tax revenue from operators. Currently these casino operators, as detailed in the South African online casino directory, act outside South African boundaries and are not taxed on their profits. When one considers the situation, it’s a no-brainer for government to act – it is practically inevitable that they will see an excellent return on investment. One can only hope that more is done than simply redesigning the National Gambling Board’s corporate identity.
In the event that you are eligible to gamble online legally in your jurisdiction, you will no doubt find that every online casino has its own distinct personality, and each attracts different types of gamblers. Regardless of whether you’re a casual gaming experimenter, or a high-roller, there is something to cater for every need. The “online casino” menu bar item has multiple sub-menus with various categories of casino options to help you see exactly what is available in the South African Online Casino market.
