Dtic gaming law and policy chief announced as Ice Africa Digital keynote speaker

Ice Africa Digital’s keynote address will be delivered by Mr Nkoatse Mashamaite, director of gaming law and policy at South Africa’s Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (Dtic).

Mashamaite has worked for Dtic since 2009 within its regulatory policy and legislation unit. Serving as a senior manager since 2014, he has had responsibility for developing policy on credit, gambling, liquor and lotteries during his tenure.
Mashamaite was a key player in the passage of the Lotteries Amendment Act in 2013 and development of the 2016 National Gambling Policy. He continues to be a leading voice in ongoing discussions around the National Gambling Amendment Bill, which could significantly reshape the country’s regulatory oversight of the industry.
“The presence of such an important figure in South African gambling regulatory strategy at ICE Africa will provide attendees with invaluable, exclusive insights,” said Dan Tyler, senior conference producer for ICE Africa organiser, Clarion Gaming.
“Mr Mashamaite has played a key role in developing gambling in the country to date, and his role is set to become even more crucial going forward, as discussions over the National Gambling Amendment Bill continue”.
Nkoatse Mashamaite added: “Having spent years developing and directing gambling regulations in South Africa, I appreciate this opportunity to share my experiences and to engage with the industry through ICE Africa Digital”.
His addition to the speaker line-up at ICE Africa further strengthens a roster of industry experts, lawmakers, operators, suppliers and affiliates from across the continent.
