Posted on February 03, 2020 at 11:02am
Leading live casino games giant Evolution Gaming has secured an exciting set of new rights, and this time round, the focus will be on offering award-winning live games to the emerging South African market. Evolution Gaming is the absolute leading specialist in its field, and will without a doubt make possible only the best in live casino entertainment to South Africa’s rapidly growing player base. The South African licence was secured by the iGaming brand thanks to its acquisition of Eguzi. The latter has been actively involved in South Africa for quite some time, and now offers the brand the perfect in-road into one of the world’s most promising new markets for 2020.
The new licence was granted by South Africa’s Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board. This respected regulator oversees all online gaming entertainment activities in the country. The deal will rely on working agreements to be established between Eguzi and existing licensed South African online casino operators.
Live Casino Games & Betting
Evolution Gaming’s licence is that of a manufacturer. What this means is that Eguzi will be in a position to not only roll out live casino games to South African operators, but also offer a selection of online sports betting products too. South Africa does not allow online slots to be offered by locally based operators, but the country’s gambling regulations do permit online sports betting and select live casino games.
Evolution Gaming’s live dealer solutions as well as its brand-new betting products will soon be rolled out to local players for their enjoyment; a project the brand says its exceptionally excited about. The local market offers a world of opportunities to a company like Evolution Gaming. The market is a regulated one, and is as such protected. Accessing a protected market such as the local South African games market is notoriously difficult due to strong measures of control and strict measures of compliance. However, what has made it significantly easier for Evolution Gaming to enter the South African market, has been Eguzi’s many years of experience in the country. The subsidiary brand is fully familiar with local laws and regulations and will ensure that the brand remains perfectly compliant with South African gaming legislation.
SA Has Long-Term Potential
Eguzi founder-CEO Kfir Kugler is excited about South Africa’s potential in terms of looking at the bigger picture. Kugler described South Africa as an online casino market that encapsulates long-term potential, and one that will fully embrace all that Evolution Gaming has to offer. Only the best titles created by the live casino games specialist will be rolled out to South African operators and players, ensuring that the games and betting products offered by the supplier lives up to the high standards imposed by the local Western Cape regulator.
Keeping tabs on quality and standard will ensure that South Africa does indeed become a long-term partner of the live dealer specialist. Evolution Gaming has furthermore confirmed that it will be rolling out its live casino games on every conceivable platform, including special versions for tablets and smartphones too. The company has a long and rich history of top-notch development to be proud of, and its reputation across the globe has without a doubt helped seal the deal with the promising new market.
Online Gaming Not Illegal
Even though playing slots on a platform administrated by a local South African online operator would be regarded as illegal, its not illegal per se to gamble online in the country. Various international operators accepting South African currency are currently offering online casino entertainment to local players. Now, Evolution Gaming has the ideal chance to make its mark on a market that could well explode in the next few years.
