The Rise of Online Casinos

Creating online sites for the casinos was a logical move when you think about it. The Internet has brought many people closer to each other and billions are using Internet services every day. So why bring people to the casinos, when you can bring the casino to the people?

The first online casinos started appearing in 1994. But at the time, nobody trusted the sites enough to give them their private data. By 2008, online gambling businesses had a global revenue of $21 billion. That is when things started to go up. Thousands of developers and programmers were hired by the online casinos to create a good-looking and safe website on which players can spend quality time.

Today, there are thousands of online casino sites available for all players. Online casinos are using the latest SSL-encryption technology to make sure that their sites are safe and secure and they also have a state-of-the-art Random Number Generator (RNG) to create a different and fair outcome of every game.

That way each player has an equal chance of winning. One South African man though, is probably the luckiest in the world – he managed to win the lottery twice in one week. The odds of that happening are almost impossible.

Now that we’ve given you a small history of the rise of online casino, let’s head over to the most popular casino games played in Africa.

Progressive Slots

Progressive slots are 3rd on the list of most famous casino games in Africa. It is vastly played due to the huge prizes that it offers. The basic idea of progressive slots is that the reward keeps rising by the minute if not won. When the prize is won, progressive slots restart and begin the same cycle with the same rules.


Like any country in the world, poker is also one of the most played casino games in Africa. Texas Hold’Em is the preferable poker game. In Texas Hold’Em, you are dealt with two cards and combine them with the 5 community cards on the table to create a pair, two pair, flush, or straight flush.


The simplest and most popular game ever. The game is simple – you cross the numbers of a list when they are called out. The aim is to cross them before anyone else. There are various types of bingo like 90-ball and 75-ball.
