South African Casino Operators Push For Online Casino Legislation

Published

on

South African casino operators such as Tsogo Sun and Sun International are quietly pushing the government to pass legislation allowing online casinos to operate alongside the already legalized and regulated online sports betting industry. They are hoping that the hard work put into the 2008 National Gambling Amendment Act to formally legalize online casino gambling will finally be completed.

Kelvin Jones, the senior editor of PlayCasino (), explained: “For many years, South Africa’s online gambling industry has been operating in a grey zone. The hard blow which the industry took during the Covid-19 lockdown had retail casino operators looking anew at alternative revenue options, and the obvious focus has been on internet gambling. These operators need to reshape their business in the wake of the pandemic and obviously, they want to avoid retrenching staff. The best way to do so is to divest their businesses, and what better – and more proven – way to do so than to offer their services online?”

“South Africans are huge fans of online casinos,” continued Kelvin Jones. “Millions of South Africans already play at regulated, licensed offshore sites that are fully focused on the local player and even allow them to pay in ZAR. Well-established and reputable casino operators such as Tsogo Sun and Sun International are obviously aware of this, but they want to do things the right way. They want the government to give the green light for them to tap into the multi-million Rand online casino industry.”

Sun International has been campaigning the South African Department of Trade and Industry to allow land-based casinos the right to offer online casino games. Its subnet brand launched draw-based games several months ago and plans to introduce online versions of live dealer titles.

Tsogo Sun has also urged the government to take another look at existing online gambling legislation. The group’s CEO, Chris du Toit said that online gaming was a “natural progression” for the business, which is already at an advanced stage of moving into online sports betting.

“The South African government should not pass up on this momentous trend,” said PlayCasino’s Kelvin Jones. “As we’ve seen in other parts of the world, it’s not a given that land-based casino operators are fully supportive of online gambling industry. Here is the perfect opportunity for the operators to build their businesses, avoid retrenchments, increase their revenue, and offset the terrible losses caused by the pandemic. On the other hand, the government will benefit from increased tax revenue and a stronger economy. It really is a win-win.”

Ratajkowski also penned an essay for the magazine, where she said the couple would wait until the “child is 18″ before revealing the gender because they hope to raise the child in a gender-neutral environment.

She wrote, “When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after ‘Congratulations’ is almost always, ‘Do you know what you want?’ We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then.”

“Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who – rather than what – is growing inside my belly.”

“But no matter how progressive I may hope to be, I understand the desire to know the gender of our fetus,” she continues. “It feels like the first real opportunity to glimpse who they might be.”
