why-online-gamblingIf online gambling is a new concept to you, you might not understand why people would want to sit at home and gamble when they could go to the casino to have fun.

There are many reasons why online gambling can be just as much, if not more, fun than regular brick and mortar casino gambling. We look at some of the top reasons why online gambling in South Africa is so popular.


Bearing in mind the great technological improvements we have seen over the last couple of years. This means online casinos give you that real casino feel without all the nasty things people associate with 'real' casinos.

Game Offerings

Did you know that online casinos offer you a bigger chance of winning? They offer the same or higher odds than those casinos situated in South Africa (See our SA Casino Resorts). They also offer larger and better Progressive Jackpots as several online casinos often share the same jackpot structure or network-wide progressives.

These casinos also offer you more games to choose from. Remember that online casinos do not have to pay rent for a large building, and salaries of hundreds of employees. They also don't really have to pay more to offer more games. Therefore, they can easily offer more than a hundred game varieties.

You can choose the games you want to play and then adjust the sound and animation features to suit your needs. Nowadays, you can also play 'live dealer' games as well as multi-player games.


You can gamble online or on your mobile any time you want and anywhere you like. On holiday, in the car, at home, at an internet café: wherever you feel comfortable.

You don't have to pay for petrol and drive for an hour just to get to the casino. In the end it's not really 'why online gambling' but 'why not?'
