As lockdown continues in many areas around the world, including South Africa, an interesting trend has been observed. According to data collected from internet search engines, the interest in online casinos has hit a record high. Google Trends data reports that more people than ever before typed in the words ‘casinos online’ when doing an online search.
The reason for this trend is clear. Governments from around the world are doing everything in their power to stop the spread of COVID-19. One of the first things they did was close all physical gambling venues and cancel all sports events.
