South Africa

Moderate
South Africa is a yellow-level online gambling jurisdiction as their industry is partially regulated with continuing changes.

South Africa is the southern-most country in mainland Africa. It borders Namibia to the north-west, Botswana and Zimbabwe to the north, and Mozambique to the north-east. It also borders the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Indian Ocean to the east.

Overview

Online gambling in South Africa is incredibly complicated. It has been banned and legalized multiple times. At the time of this writing, licensed horse racing and sports betting are both allowed for wagers on the Internet, and other forms of online gambling are not allowed. However, there are active interests in place right now to push through legislation that would legalize other forms of gambling, so the landscape is constantly changing.

It's important to note that the nine provinces of South Africa have their own gambling boards, and companies can become licensed through any of these provincial entities. However, gambling with foreign operators of any kind is illegal.

Licensing

Licenses are offered from the gaming boards of all nine provinces. What's interesting is that a single license allows you to offer your services all over the country, so companies don't have to go through the whole mess of getting licenses in every individual province like they do in some countries. These licenses mean a lot, and they are guarded in a way that protects the business from shady companies. To give an idea, Western Cape gives the most licenses of any province, and they only have 32 licensees. Overall, the licensing process is pretty strict and kept together on a high level to ensure legitimacy as much as possible.

Player Protection

Player protections are available in a major way for legalized, regulated gambling. However, if you play with unlicensed sites, then the government can come after your bank accounts and throw you in jail. As far as the licensed sites go, however, they take legitimacy very seriously, and there are clear pathways to getting a judgment if you feel you have a valid complaint. The control boards are serious about keeping the industry clean, and that's why they take these complaints so seriously. Companies that do not adhere to the guidelines they are supposed to will have their licenses revoked, and they can face additional fines and punishments on top of that.
