Online Gambling Illegal in South Africa

The long battle between Piggs Peak Casino and South African gambling authorities has come to a close, and Piggs Peak has lost their appeal in the Bloemfontein Supreme Court of Appeals. As a result, Piggs Peak has closed their doors with immediate effect to South African players. Piggs Peak has advised all their players with a positive balance to withdraw their money immediately.
The Supreme Court of Appeals has ruled that interactive gambling is illegal in South Africa until regulations for online gambling licences have been finalized. An amendment to South African gambling laws allowing online casinos to be issues licenses is in the works, but it is unclear when this amendment will be finalized.
Of course, offline casinos remain available, and are more convenient for card counters, but still it’s a great shame.
