Donate your winnings from 67 minutes of play, 67 spins, 67 blackjack or video poker bets at our online casino for Mandela Day!

If there’s one thing we know how to do good and proper here at Springbok, it is how to celebrate our South African heritage at our online casino – and what better way to celebrate than on Mandela Day! Join us on 18 July as we pay homage to the great leader, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, affectionately known as “Madiba”.

What is the Relevance of the Number 67?

Mandela Day is not just a day to remember the legacy of Nelson Mandela, but also a day to take action and inspire change in the world. The Mandela Day Campaign message encourages people to use 67 minutes of their time to support a chosen charity or serve in their local community.

The 67 minutes symbolically represent the number of years the former President fought for human rights and the abolition of apartheid. By dedicating 67 minutes of our time – one for every year of Mandela's service – we can make a difference in the lives of others and honour his vision of a peaceful and just society!

Why is Mandela Day on 18 July?

Mandela Day is celebrated on 18 July every year, which is the date of Nelson Mandela's birth. The United Nations declared this day as Nelson Mandela International Day in 2009, in recognition of his contribution to the culture of peace and freedom.

Mandela Day is an occasion for all to honour his legacy and values, and to follow his example of service and compassion. As Mandela said on his 90th birthday, “It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is your hands now.”
