Piggs Peak has been granted leave to appeal against a North Gauteng High Court ruling that effectively banned online gambling in SA. The court last month found in favour of the Gauteng Gambling Board after a protracted legal battle between the online casino and the Board over the right to advertise and operate online gambling services in SA.

Last week, well-known casino Piggs Peak shut down its online service after a high court ruling effectively outlawed Internet-based gambling in SA. It was a long battle that dated as far back as 2004 when the Gauteng Gambling Board bemoaned the fact that the company did not have a gambling licence in SA and should therefore not allow South Africans to use its service.
