Piggs Peak Casino closes


Online casino company will respect South African ban pending its appeal

Swaziland-based Pigg’s Peak Online Casino has ceased to operate in South Africa since Saturday, reports the Times of Swaziland.

The cut-off was at midnight on Saturday, pending a court appeal judgement, Operations Director Lew Saul Koor said.

The shutdown was on the advice of the casino’s lawyers after the Swaziland-licensed online casino lost a North Gauteng High Court challenge to the Gauteng Gambling Board, supported by the National Gambling Board, about where online gambling takes place — where the server is situated (Swaziland) or where the person is playing (SA) .

The SA authorities claim that the ruling also made it illegal for internet service providers and financial institutions to advertise online gambling or facilitate transactions.

Koor said that although the casino was in the process of applying for leave to appeal, "We have been advised we should stop operating for South African players until the matter has been resolved".

Koors said that players’ balances can be cashed in by e-mailing support@piggspeak.com.
