Thursday August 8,2013 : NEW ONLINE POKER SITE LAUNCH
 
But if this operator is in South Africa there is a need to tread carefully
 
What appears to be a South African entrepreneur has been touting the forthcoming launch of a free-to-play online poker website this week, treading carefully around South African laws which hold that most forms of online gambling are currently illegal.
 
The new operation will be titled African Poker Online.com and the foundation site can be viewed at http://184.82.141.20:8087/
 
The promoter emphasises the free-to-play nature of the site, although prizes can be won, such as a free seat to an upcoming Kenyan poker tournament.
 
"For now you have a platform to practice your online game and meet new players," the promoter advises prospective visitors. "Leaderboards and other great social items are being launched once we get out of the Alpha testing phase."
