Bet on Sports in South Africa
South Africa is a sports-loving country with a unique history of bringing people together on the field of play. However, interest in sport extends well beyond the pitch itself.
Before the sports betting industry was decriminalised in 1994, South Africans travelled outside the country's borders to gamble. The industry, along with the country as a whole, has come a long way in 25 years since.
