Leading online casino SuperCasino has shared their thoughts on a proposed bill to legalise online gambling in South Africa.
A report published by iGamingBusiness indicates that the new bill, which retracts the 2008 National Gambling Act allowing online betting on sports events only, will be considered by the parliament in South Africa. The new bill would include online casinos as well as the currently regulated sports betting and, if passed, would be similar to bills currently in place in Europe and Australia which see national and provincial governments responsible for overseeing licensing.
The proposed bill comes after news of pressure on lawmakers in South Africa to legalise online betting, with consumer protection and taxations put forward as reasons to pass the bill.
As a leading online casino based in the UK, the experts at SuperCasino take an interest in news from around the world relating to online gambling. The team were interested in news of the proposed bill in South Africa and a spokesperson for the company shared their thoughts:
“News of online gambling legalisation has been announced around the world, so it is no surprise to see another country also considering passing a bill to legalise online betting. Legalised and regulated online casinos offer a safe environment for users to play their favourite online casino games from the comfort of their own home, so news of potential legalisation is welcome in the industry.
News of this potential legalisation highlights how the industry is continuing to expand around the world and, with the popularity of online casinos growing by the day, it is positive news that online gambling could be legalised in South Africa. If online gambling is legalised there, the country has the potential to see the benefits experienced by other locations that have recently authorized online casinos. We look forward to following developments in this story.”
