Evolution Obtains Permit to Enter South Africa with Live Casino Range
It is that time of the year when the ICE London conference and exhibition show is just days away and gambling companies, both on the B2B and B2C side of the industry, are busy releasing important bits of news of how they plan to grow their operations over the next 10-12 months.
The latest bit of news coming from Live Casino expert Evolution Gaming states that the company has secured the required regulatory approval to venture into a new, exciting market.
In a press release that hit the wire earlier today, the Swedish provider of leading Live Casino solutions announced that it has obtained a National Manufacturer license from the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.
The license paves the way for Evolution’s entry into the South African online gambling market. The company will thus be able to deliver its wide range of products and services as well as those of its recently acquired subsidiary Ezugi to locally licensed operators that are willing to expand their offering with Live Casino titles.
Evolution announced the acquisition of its smaller live casino rival Ezugi in the fall of 2018 and closed the deal in early 2019 in a bid to further cement itself as the leader in the rapidly growing live casino segment.
Looking Forward to South African Debut
Commenting on Evolution’s entry into the South African market, group CEO Martin Carlesund said that they are delighted to have obtained a license from a local regulator and that they look forward to opening up their live dealer games portfolio to both operators and their players in the country.
Mr. Carlesund went on that they are entering an exciting new vertical, “thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in this market by our Ezugi subsidiary.”
The recently received license enables Evolution to provide its Live Casino titles as well as its new live event betting solutions across desktop, tablet, and mobile. The company also revealed plans to tap into South Africa’s retail betting sector.
Ezugi CEO and founder Kfir Kugler added that he sees great potential in South Africa’s regulated market as his company and its parent, Evolution, are gearing up to deliver Evolution-powered Live Casino games and fixed odds solutions to operators and to “bring players the most entertaining live games and live Game Show games available in the world, alongside exciting new betting products.”
Evolution also announced this week that it has partnered French gambling operator Groupe Partouche to support its entry in the Swiss market and that it has added Baccarat to its popular Lightning range.
