Offshore online casinos becoming popular in African countries

Offshore online casinos becoming popular in African countries
Published: 31 August 2018 (1817 Views)
Despite the widespread popularity of online gambling sites, these have always met criticism from countries with legislation against legalising online gambling activities. For the most part, participating in online wagers is illegal in many countries. Nevertheless, there is no restriction on players placing bets or playing in an online gambling site duly licensed in a country where its operation is legal.

In countries like Zimbabwe and South Africa, operating land-based casinos and online gambling sites contribute significantly to the economy. South Africa has a huge market for online gaming which caters to other countries surrounding the region. Although participation from residents in other African countries may be less due to lack of internet connection, there is no denying the possibility of this increasing in the future.

Why are online casinos becoming more popular?

To say that the presence of online casinos is vast is an understatement. If you take time to browse online for sites where you can play for real money, you will be overwhelmed with the choices available. Fortunately, most of these choices are available for players around the world. One enticing aspect of online casinos is how they reinvent classic casino games and turn them into exciting and creative ventures for avid casino players.

Another advantage of online casinos is the convenience and comfort of playing in your own home. You can maintain anonymity and choose to play at your own pace and time. Since most online casinos operate offshore, players from countries around the world and in Africa are at an advantage. They will have access to a vast array of games, promotions, and bonuses that are otherwise unavailable in land-based casinos.

Choosing an online casino

Like any gambling activity, each player must take precautions when participating in online gambling. Because of the variety of choices available today, it is not always easy to find the best online casino if you don't know what to prioritise. Here are suggestions:
  • A good range of games on offer. One indicator that an online casino has reputable operations is the range of games they offer players. There should be a variety of table games, slot games, and other games on offer. In addition to these favourite games, the operator should also have a custom range of options for players who prefer themed games or live-dealer poker.
  • Bonus and promo offers. New players are always on the lookout for the best online casino offers. Fortunately, there is no shortage of promotions, especially from established websites. Aside from welcome bonuses, an online casino should also offer programs to reward loyal customers.
  • Security and licensing. The next step a player needs to take is confirming the online casino licensing. Verify if the online casino operates under the jurisdiction of a country where it is legal to run an online gaming website. In addition to licensing, you should also confirm the level of encryption and safety measures the online casino employs.
Online gaming is a safe and enjoyable activity if you follow these recommendations for finding the best online casino.
