A comprehensive guide to online gambling for real money

Online Casino South Africa

Recently, a substantial number of international gambling houses have opened their doors to South African Rand players. In spite of the 2012 Supreme Court ruling against Piggs Peak Casino in Gauteng, literally dozens of Rand online casinos are still in operation currently. In fact, many of these South African online casinos like the famous Silversands Casino and the newer Springbok Casino still appear to be almost exclusively targeting South African players.

Given the security situation in South Africa, visiting land-based casinos is quite a usual evening pastime for many citizens (good security, ample parking etc). These complexes, unlike the somewhat grey area of online gambling in South Africa, are legally licensed by the local gambling authority. They offer not only the latest slots and table games but also a host of unrelated entertainment options in a secure environment: everything from fine dining and cinemas to comedy clubs and theatre. Given the popularity of these venues, and the current state of the economy, it is easy to see a future in which online casinos in South Africa are fully regulated and generating significant amounts of tax revenue.

The online casinos featured below accept players wanting to gamble in ZAR (South African rands). As per the terms of this site, please ensure that online gambling is legal in your jurisdiction before signing up to play. For your convenience the online casino information is categorised into the best South Africa casinos, popular South Africa online casinos, and online casino no deposit sections.

Online Casino South Africa No Deposit

Newcomers to online gambling in South Africa might be overwhelmed with the ZAR casino choices available. As an easy start, many online casinos offer no deposit bonus codes allowing new players to try out the online gaming experience before forking out their hard-earned real money to play. Whilst a R40 no deposit bonus on Les A Casino or a R100 Casino Tropez no deposit bonus may not seem like much, it’s certainly a no-risk way of trying out the online casino scene.

Please feel free to bookmark this South African casinos page and check back regularly for the latest Rand casino offers – they are all updated frequently. Also note that a number of South African online casino options running on the Playtech platform (the likes of Grand Online, Online Casino Central, Flamingo, Magic Box, Carnival Casino and others) have stopped accepting South African players recently – if this is the case, some of the reference images on the Gamble Online for Money website may redirect you to an alternative site, until we have had an opportunity to remove the content.
