AfriCasino is name familiar to most South Africa online casino fans. This online and mobile casino has been around for a fair few years (they opened in 2017) so why, we hear you ask, are we only doing a review for them now?
Well, in a nutshell: AfriCasino have not been the most upfront and trusted of casinos for South African gamblers. There were a slew of stories about their wagering requirements, about the glitchiness of their website, and – most worryingly – about just how legit they actually were.
But all that has changed – and we are super glad about that! Because AfriCasino offers a great online casino games experience.
With a newly revamped website, a bunch of new bonuses and promotions, and a fully registered and legitimate license from the Curacao Gambling Authority, AfriCasino is set to become a firm and trusted favourite for our local gamblers.
Not that everything is absolutely perfect. Questions still remain around some of their wagering requirements and the fact that, even though you can deposit in South African Rands, you gave to play in Euros keep AfriCasino from joining the real top recommended online casinos for our Online South African Casinos team. Which is really weird because they go so far as to offer support in Afrikaans so we know they are catering to our market.
But they do have a fantastic line-up of games and a really staggering number of bonuses and promos.

There are over 400 slots games posted but this is nowhere near what AfriCasino truly offers. With most of the biggest names on board as providers, and a fair whack if indie developers as well, you would be making a huge mistake to not check out the rest of the offerings. Some of the table games – like Texas Hold’em Bonus from evoplay, and pontoon, and even rummy and minesweeper – are unusual and proper good fun! Add in a great Live Dealer lobby with a wide selection of excellent games and you have a complete casino game offering.

The AfriCasino mobile casino is fully responsive and offers a hugely entertaining casino game experience on-the-go. It is really well-designed and is easy to log into via the browser on your mobile device.
Support is available 24/7 via email, telephone and live chat. Do note that the telephone is an international number though.
The OSAC verdict:
AfriCasino offers a great selection if games but falls short when it comes to full transparency, especially in the gambling currency and wagering requirements areas. However, if you choose to bypass the bonuses and you aren’t expecting to withdraw large winning sums, it is a pretty solid platform with amazing choices.
- Incredible selection of games and developers
- Able to deposit in ZAR
- Great website design and usability
- Lots of bonuses
- Live Dealer games
- Interesting and unusual games
- The play-in-Euro stipulation is a bit of a miss
- Wagering requirements are a bit dodgy
