EXPERTS SOUTH AFRICA The Most Popular African Countries for Gambling 3 weeks ago Szarlot Post Views: 207 After its internet boost, sports betting and online gambling in Africa have become a highly sought-after activity amongst many. However, not all countries consider gambling a legal activity. All the 54 countries in Africa today have divided themselves into 3 main categories of gambling, namely, unregulated, banned and legal. The difference between the three are as follows: The Legal countries: have both betting companies and casinos operating in a legal capacity. The Banned countries: have banned all forms of gambling including online casino games and online sports betting. The Unregulated countries: their authorities do not forbid this form of activity, nor do they regulate it within the gambling industries. So, which countries are now on the list of high gamblers? We look at a few below. South Africa One of the major popular tourist destinations in South Africa. Many people from all over the world visit this country frequently, every year. Some go to indulge in the sights and sounds, while others take a break from the stresses of city life in the UK and Europe or the USA. Because over 80% of the entire gambling activity scene sits in this country, it is the ideal place for visitors and locals to partake in some online activity and with international websites that offer accessibility to everyone, registering and playing on operator websites like play online slots is as easy as 1-2-3. Local punters can enjoy some of the various games, both online as well as in land-based casinos, and South Africa has some of the best ones with varied and secure offerings. Kenya Another region that enjoys some online action is Kenya. Some online casinos have stringent rules and regulations however, for the most part, if you have a laptop, or mobile phone and an internet connection, you can play to your heart’s content. Online sports betting is also a very popular activity amongst Kenyans, who love football. Other Countries Where Gambling Is in High-demand Nigeria, Uganda, Morocco, Tanzania, and Botswana are among the other countries where gambling is legal, and operators have an assortment of online games for the rest of the world and the residents. Not only do these places have luxurious land-based casinos but are also amongst the more popular options for gambling tourists to frequent, so they can relax in the wilderness or beachfront resorts, in the warm weather, and enjoy a game of online slots. Two of the most significant changes in the laws that took place both in 1996 and 2004, were with the replacement of the laws through the Gambling Acts commission. This law stated that any gambling activity in certain countries, including sports wagering, the lottery and online casinos, was proclaimed legal. The 2004 act, however, placed an embargo on online casinos in some countries and unless operators have a valid license they would not be allowed to run their platforms to the public. Some may agree that this has become one of the major sources of activity for residents above the legal age. Source: aptantech.com SzarlotI am a fan of casino games especially roulette and blackjack.
