South Africa Legalizing Online Gambling

It seems that even South Africa has gotten on the bandwagon for legalizing online gambling. There is currently a bill sitting in the Select Committee of National Provinces that would legalize online gambling for the country. If it is passed it will go on to the National Assembly for final approval.

This is good news to South African residents as many would like to participate in online gambling and many do. However, if they are caught participating in it they will be arrested and charged with breaking the law. They could serve jail time and will pay large fines if they are caught.

There isn’t a single company currently licensed in South Africa for online gambling, and if it is made legal the country says that they can expect to be flooded with requests for online gambling licenses within their country. Those that are currently running illegal online gambling sites can pretty much do whatever they want as there is no recourse against them.

It doesn’t matter whether or not the site is not listed in South Africa, as prison and fines will be applied no matter which online casino first deposit bonus singapore you choose to play.

Those that are currently participating can run into troubles with their online gambling providers. If they choose to take their clients’ money and run they will be able to do so without any repercussions from the government as it is illegal. Once it is made legal, those that wish to participate can do so in a protected environment.

The government says that those that are currently operating illegally will not be eligible for licensing once they are handed out. Only those that have not run an illegal online gambling site will be able to become licensed within the country.

It seems that the Casino Rewards group is going to be taking over six new online casinos. They will now be handling all of the online casinos that are currently operating under the Casino Action group heading. That means that Challenge, Golden Reef, iBig, Music Hall, Nostalgia and UK Casino Club are now Casino Rewards members as of March 25th.

All of those that are currently members of any of the aforementioned casinos will be transferred to the new management system. Everything they currently have, account balances, withdrawals, bonus credits, etc. will all be transferred with their accounts. There will not be any lag time between them either; all accounts will be ready to go immediately.

Casino Rewards says that they are excited about their new additions. They say that they are ‘working around the clock’ to get the new casinos integrated with theirs, and they will be able to log in at their new casinos just as they had done before. They will have to close down the online casinos while they make the change, but as of March 25th they will be up and running.

The company wants them to know that their accounts are safe under the CasinoRewards logo and that they guarantee their ‘security, reliability, and professionalism.’ Players will be receiving notification when they are able to play again.

They already have twelve amazing online casinos, and they say that this new addition will simply make online gambling even more accessible to their members.
