Of all the African nations, South Africa is one of the most prosperous, yet it suffers from some of the most varied histories. Despite this, SA, with its natural resources and gambling people, is poised to develop into a modern and successful society. But strangely enough, having a gambling population does not mean that the approach to gambling will be progressive. Interactive gambling is strictly prohibited in South Africa and citizens convicted of visiting online casinos can face incredibly harsh penalties. For example, visiting a virtual casino could result in a hefty fine.
