Monday July 29, 2013 : SOUTH AFRICAN PLAYER WINS JACKPOT
 
Risky business in an illegal online gambling market
 
South African facing Springbok Casino's announcement of a jackpot hit is a risky one considering that online gambling is manifestly illegal in that country.
 
The casino said South African slot player, identified as Lucinda S., won a R99 314 playing Cleopatra's Gold from RealTime Gaming.
 
“I felt elated when I won!” Lucinda S told a Springbok Casino customer service representative. “This is my first time! I’ve played other casinos for years and won nothing. The money will go towards my son’s tuition fees.”
 
Springbok Casino openly advertises its services in the South African market, its latest marketing efforts include the availability of its first mobile slot games such as Coyote Cash, Cleopatra's Gold, Goldbeard, Builder Beaver and Caesar's Empire.
 
We first reported on this casino early last year, however, it seems to continue operating with impunity.
