Online Casino Reaches South Africa; What about Spain?

With online casinos popping up all over the place it might not be a huge surprise on the face of it to see South Africa becoming the latest country to get a service.

However, the big surprise comes with the fact that the local authorities declared internet gambling illegal last year.

The new internet casino is called Springbok Casino and it offers a variety of casino games. Baccarat, video poker, blackjack and slots games are all on offer. It isn’t clear who owns Springbok Casino or where it is licensed but the servers are in Curacao and there is a contact for a promotions manager in Johannesburg.

The site has Facebook, Twitter and YouTube links and seems like it has been set up for the long term, despite the court ruling last year which said that the gambling took place on the person’s computer and not in the online casino’s server location.

Spanish Back Taxes Due

Meanwhile, Bwin party digital entertainment have issued a statement about the release of new regulations in Spain.

They expect the country’s authority to give out licenses for everything except online slots games at the start of June this year.

The statement from Bwin confirmed that to get a license they will have to pay back taxes to the Spanish government.

This money relates to the Spanish players which they accepted to play in their online casinos in the past. The firm has decided to go ahead and pay a figure of €33 million in order to move into the Spanish market under the new regulations. This figure has come about following a tax self- assessment which other casino operators will need to do as well if they want a license.
