South Africa makes Internet Gambling Legal
South Africa is looking more progressive than the US. At least in the field of online gambling, because the African state has just introduced a bill that makes Internet Gambling legal, though the Department of Trade and Industry.
Software vendors providing online gambling platforms will be required to obtain a national license for key staff as well as for the interactive software itself. In addition, licenses will be needed for related equipment along with the suppliers and maintenance providers of that equipment. Integrity and technical checks will be a prominent feature of the process.
The goal of the Bill is to protect players, ensure gambling revenue reaches the national treasury, retain interactive gambling players in South Africa and prevent underage or problem gambling.
