Seychelles is a group of islands off of the east coast of Africa. They are about 950 miles east of the African coast, and they are about 600 miles north-east of Madagascar.
Online gambling is completely and totally regulated in Seychelles, unlike most African nations. In an odd move, the act to regulate the industry was passed in 2003, but the actual structure for the regulation of the industry was never put together until 2009. What's also interesting is that it was largely structured around online gambling regulation efforts in Australia, and this includes the application of local licenses and a high level of screening for giving those licenses. A ton of protections are offered as well, but they haven't been able to gain a ton of traction as far as attracting licensees because they took so long dragging their feet getting a regulatory structure put together.
The licensing process in Seychelles is very strict. After the license is granted, it has to be operated through someone who lives in the country, and this is a point of contention for some companies who would prefer not to be tied down in this way. There's a very careful screening process that includes background checks with everyone who will be involved with the company in any way. The software also has to be approved as a part of this process, and regular audits each year of all activities are also included as a part of what companies agree to with this license.
While this is a very strict and high-level licensing process, the remote location and other societal factors have limited the number of licenses that have been granted due to fewer companies applying than may have been estimated.
The level of player protection is very high for online gambling in Seychelles as long as you're playing with a company that's located in the country. They are very serious about enforcing their regulations and forcing compliance with those regulations. Along these lines, this could be one of the top countries in all of Africa when it comes to the level of player protections available for online gambling, and it all stems from how seriously they take their licensing process.
