Gambling in South Africa was legalised in 1994 by the newly elected democratic government. Since then, it has been a growing and thriving industry that offers significant employment opportunities.
The gaming and lotteries industry is made up of casino gambling, limited payout machines, sports betting, bingo and the National Lottery. South Africa has 38 licensed operating casinos and there has been a significant increase in sports betting facilities around the country, as well as bingo lounges, also known as mini casinos.
Jobs in the sector include dealers, casino floor supervisors and slot supervisors, among others. And as a growing industry, you can expect career opportunities to increase as well.
