    Default South Africa Online Gambling Regulation Update

    Does anyone have updated information (or a credible source) for the most updated information on the Remote Gaming Bill 2014? From what I can find, it's going to be heard in Parliament next month.
    Thanks for any info!

    Topboss is normally pretty well informed on this subject. I'm sure she'll respond as soon as she sees this thread.

    As far as I know it went to parliament, and was rejected

    Found this: http://www.dti.gov.za/editmedia.jsp?id=3231, but it's still old. And this recent article: http://www.iol.co.za/business/news/h...1#.VMefyP7LfYg. Not sure what the next steps are - I've read it was tabled in Parliament to be heard next month...

    The last I heard was that one concept put forward was that each province could choose to make it legal or illegal, similar to how the States are trying to get it all set up.

    Unfortunately I don't have any links or docs. I was at this event last year (http://www.bigafricasummit.com/), and one of the members of the main opposition presented this concept and was going to be taking it to parliament.

    I was just alerted to this post today, but unfortunately I have nothing further to add than the above.
    To the best of my knowledge I believe that the new proposal is only due to be presented to Parliament next month.

    In my opinion the Government would be silly not to legalize it in view of the tax revenue they will generate.

    I will post here if I hear anything further.

    Thanks Topboss. Guess we were on the right track! They would be silly not to legalize it, but it appears that it might not go through. If you have any updates in the next month or so, please send along.

    This article specifically states the bill is only being presented to Parliament in February when it reopens.
