    An article in The Herald (www.theherald.co.za) discussed the legalization of online gambling in South Africa. According to the article, the attitude of the South African government is ‘if you can’t beat them join them… or at least regulate them’ . ‘Them’ in this case is the online gambling industry.

    After watching the U.S. and reaching the conclusion that outlawing online gambling is not a solution, the government set their sights on legalizing and regulating it.

    Addiction to gambling however was seen as an evolving problem according to The National Responsible Gambling Program (NGRP). “We are beginning to see the first signs of problems related to online gambling. We have treated a number of people who got addicted to online gambling and we anticipate the problem will grow,” NGRP treatment director Roger Meyer said.

    The government is plotting the course for online gambling legalization and regulation and expect to publish legislation before the end of the year to pave the way, with priority being given to measures to deal with problem gamblers or illicit activities associated with online gambling. They expect the bill to be submitted to Parliament sometime in or around July.
