The aims of the South African gambling regulatory statutes are clear: limited legalization, coupled with strict regulation and policing to channel the existing gambling demand towards the licensed and taxed operators with proven integrity at company, employee and operational level (National Gambling Act 7 of 2004, preamble). Furthermore, the licensees are generally required to create new infrastructure, provide employment opportunities for local persons as well and meet certain Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) standards. Simultaneously, vulnerable groups must be managed: minors must be prohibited from gambling and problem gamblers assisted through various programmes (ibid).
