NEW SOUTH AFRICAN ONLINE CASINO

Risky business in an illegal environment
A promotions manager, Vanessa Abrahams based in Johannesburg, South Africa, is taking an awful chance in publicising a new RealTime Gaming-powered online casino which is specifically aimed at South African punters... and manifestly illegal in that country.
Last year the North Gauteng High Court ruled that online gambling was illegal in the country, finding that gambling took place at the player's device and not on the server location, a decision which was subsequently confirmed by the Appeal Court.
Springbok Casino.co.za is a typical RTG outfit with no information on ownership or licencing. The servers are based in Curacao but the Promotions Manager in Johannesburg.
It offers slots, roulette, video poker, craps, blackjack and baccarat along with surprisingly generous promotions and incentives and is being extensively promoted on YouTube and Twitter.
