It comes as no surprise that technology has had a remarkable impact upon the gaming industry.

This year’s conference, themed “Fourth Industrial Revolution and its Impact on Gaming in Africa”, brings together representatives from countries which include Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Seychelles, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The conference is focusing on global economy shifts and the impact of this on the global gaming industry. Mvoko told delegates the shift to legalise gambling and the growth in the sector has benefited provincial fiscus. He said the industry had given consumers an additional choice of recreation, generated considerable tax revenue and increased employment. Mvoko said the provincial economy grew by an estimated R985 mil- lion over the last five years as a result of the gambling industry. He said the Eastern Cape economy was predominantly driven by car manufacturing and tourism industries. But an ongoing global economic crisis has brought about an indirect decline in both industries. “It is critical that alternative industries like legalised gaming are enhanced to diversify our economic base.” Source: African News Agency (ANA) About Post Author Iwo Bulski Issues related to the gambling business is engaged in more than 30 years.
