The South African Rand, ZAR (code) or R (symbol), is the official currency used in South Africa. When the South African Reserve Bank issued it in February 1961, it was also adopted as the official currency of Eswatini, Namibia, and Lesotho. Other African countries such as Angola, Malawi, and Zimbabwe are among its unofficial users.
The Rand is a currency accepted at many online or live casinos. This benefits South African online casino players and other users of the currency because they can play live casino games using their local currency, without the hassle of making complex conversions.
