South African Regulation
It looks like many countries are starting to seriously consider changing their online casino legislation. South Africa is the latest country to make the appropriate moves towards legalizing online casinos. They are currently looking at the examples made by other countries that have already legalized online casinos and internet gambling in order for them to get some ideas. The country of South Africa wants to get some of the framework and the pitfalls that some of the other countries with online casinos have experienced that way they can make their legislation in their own country work for them, and work quickly. The country that they are most interested in at the moment is Antigua. The island of Antigua is a very small Caribbean island which is a perfect example of how to legalize and profit from online casinos. Antigua has been one of the most successful nations in the online casino industry.

They are not just studying the data and legislation of the online casino industry in Antigua. The South African government is taking the time to visit the island in order to learn more about their Division of Gaming. The previous administration in the United States never took the time to visit countries like this before they passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006. The South African government is hoping that their trip will help them figure out exactly how they will be able to profit from legalizing online casinos and regulate it within their own borders. During their visit at the small but successful island the representatives of the South African government will be asking some choice questions to the board members regarding licensing, regulatory and supervisory policies that are related to online casinos and internet gambling.

What is a very good sign for the online casino industry is how involved and serious the South African Government is considering the legalization of online casinos. This truly may be one of the most responsible and logical ways of legislation that has been seen in the online casino realm. Maybe this is even more good new for the online casino industry as many other countries may follow suit and follow in the footsteps of South Africa and go to a successful country to piggy back on their methods. South Africa would obviously take all of the lessons they learned in Antigua and then tailor make it in order to fit their country.
