From the Editor:

Welcome to the Gambling Indaba issue of Gaming for Africa magazine. You will most likely be reading this at Africa?s gaming trade show, and will no doubt have seen that the interest gained over the past three years that an African Gambling Trade Show has been held, has been phenomenal. For various reasons, each show has had a different flavour, from its fledgling inception at the CTICC in Cape Town, to its successful move to Johannesburg, where a large number of slots manufacturers joined the show and now to its third year, where a growing international interest in the continent and its sportsbetting opportunities are evident. Ultimately an African show in the future will combine all these elements, and build on the groundwork laid by Gambling Indaba and draw together all disciplines from sportbetting and lotteries to casinos and bingo, with an added element of providing technical training and world-class knowledge sharing. Ultimately, an African Gambling Trade Show will in years to come, provide the perfect portal for international companies looking to invest in all forms of gambling on the continent, an opportunity to meet with local partners and serve as a guide for doing business on a continent that, although sometimes is fraught with contradictions and may at times be difficult to navigate, is ripe with opportunities once armed with the right local expertise.
