Every country has its own laws governing gambling in all its different forms. Online gambling legislation may change from time to time and particularly when it comes to South Africa. There has for a length of time been some controversy surrounding internet online gambling in South Africa. As it stands right now it is deemed illegal for any player within the borders of SA to play online.
Although many casinos offer players the option of depositing and playing in Rands this is purely for players that wish to do so outside of the borders of South Africa. Some legislation for gambling online has been gazetted for players in South Africa but this has been limited specifically to the following areas: Bingo, land based casinos, Online betting (Sports Betting) and lastly to operators licensed to have limited payout machines ( sometime seen in bars and the odd Tote ).
There is a new revised bill which will regulate interactive gambling in South Africa that has been ready for the States Presidents signing. As soon as this bill is passed it will go a long way to ensuring that online gambling will be implemented efficiently and regulated through the correct channels.
For clarity on these and other forms of gambling please visit the South Africa National Gambling Board website at www.ngb.org.za.

Some helpful information regarding gambling
For some people gambling can be addictive and therefore problematic, if you feel you have a problem with gambling please contact the National Council on Problem Gambling. Alternatively you can speak to your casino directly to put measures in place to stop you from gambling. This is not an uncommon practice and can certainly help you take some responsibility before it becomes a real problem.
Wagering requirements – This is often an area of confusion for some players. Most online casinos offer some type on bonus incentive which is fantastic, but players need to be aware that all casinos offering these types of bonuses do so with a play through requirement.
Example: A casino has a wagering requirement set at 20 times the amount received ( i.e. on a R100 free bonus the wagering is R2000, on R200 it’s R4000, etc)
It’s always a good idea to make sure you understand the terms set by a casino. Remember every casino has its own T&C’s so be smart and read them.
The legal age for gambling is 18.
