Stockholm-listed live casino specialist Evolution Gaming has been granted approval to launch its live casino solutions in South Africa.
The award of a national manufacturer’s license by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board enables Evolution and its subsidiary Ezugi, to roll out its products to licensed gaming operators in South Africa for the first time.
“We are delighted to have received this license and look forward to opening up our world-leading live dealer games portfolio to operators and players in South Africa,” said Evolution chief executive Martin Carlesund. “Thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in this market by our Ezugi subsidiary, we are entering a really exciting new vertical in this region.
“Our world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting solutions too, will be available not only on desktop, tablet and smartphone but also in retail betting shops.”
Ezugi founder and chief executive Kfir Kugler commented: “There is long-term potential in the regulated South African market to deliver Evolution-powered live dealer 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.”
