Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The South African Gambling Industry in South Africa 2016" report to their offering.

The South African gambling industry which includes casino gambling, sports betting, Limited Payout Machines (LPMs), the National Lottery and bingo achieved gross gambling revenue (GGR) of R26.3bn in 2016 and paid R2.8bn in taxes and levies.

In the sector there are six casino operators, dominated by Tsogo Sun, Sun International and Peermont Global, 11,235 active LPMs and approximately 400 South African bookmaker outlets. Casinos employ 24,300 people and the industry as a whole, including non-gambling services such as hospitality and catering, indirectly supports more than 64,000 jobs.

A Regulated Sector: The industry is highly regulated with nine provincial gambling regulators responsible for the issuing of casino, bookmaker and LPM licenses. Local gambling authorities fall under the purview of the National Gambling Board (NGB) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
