New partnership to boost penetration of supplier’s product in growing markets
SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has partnered with Kiron Interactive to develop an all-new bespoke 24/7 channel to deliver a select mix of both companies’ market-leading Numbers products across Africa.
The agreement will see SIS collaborate with the established global technology and software company, leveraging its expertise and insight across the many burgeoning markets in the continent to deliver the channel tailored for African markets, expanding the profile of both companies’ high-quality, enhanced Numbers content.
African operators and players will have greater access to SIS’ world-famous 49’s Original Live Draw, alongside the new high-margin 39’s draw that features high-frequency, live draws every five minutes. The company’s numbers content is already hugely popular with bettors across Africa, who enjoy the opportunity to win big from small stakes.
This agreement is the latest in a string of similar commercial announcements in Africa for SIS, highlighting the growing demand for its 24/7 live betting offering and strengthening its presence across the potential-rich regulated markets.
Joe Andrews, Head of Sales for Africa at SIS, said: “Having the right partners in regions with a disparate makeup such as in Africa is essential to ensuring we continue growing our brand and products there.
“Kiron’s heritage across the continent provides us with a hugely valuable advantage in developing and launching this new channel, which will be a significant boost to our commercial ambitions in the region.
“Our content is renowned for driving incremental revenue as the high-frequency, 24/7 nature of our Numbers games is popular among African bettors.”
Steven Spartinos, Co-CEO of Kiron Interactive, said: “As we continue to expand the reach of Kiron and broaden the scope of the services we offer and the number of partners we work with, collaborating with a leading brand such as SIS is key.
“While we operate globally, Africa is where our roots lie, and as such, we offer unrivalled insight into the many diverse markets here. We’re delighted to work with SIS and look forward to working together to bring the combination of our respective revenue-boosting content to an even wider audience.”
African expansion delights BetGames as Skyward enjoys successful tier-one launch
Leading games provider BetGames has reported an overwhelming response to the African launch of its debut crash game, Skyward, as it continues to strengthen its presence in the South African market.
Following the network launch of the thrilling plane-themed crash game, its reception in the continent has marked a significant milestone for the company’s expansion efforts in the region. A successful introduction in South Africa in partnership with leading operators Betway and Hollywoodbets has returned very encouraging results.
The pair of top-tier brands each benefit from a sleek, branded version tailored to meet the preferences of local players, complete with bespoke, customisable features, as well as the respective operators’ globally recognised logos.
Both Betway and Hollywoodbets have embraced Skyward as an exciting addition to their content portfolio, providing players with a dynamic experience that has been optimised to ensure lightweight and stable operation, meeting the challenges of markets that prioritise low data consumption.
Additionally, the game incorporates automated promotional tools designed to reward players regularly, further enhancing the gaming experience.
The expansion into South Africa coincides with BetGames’ ambitious growth plans for 2024, capitalising on the momentum generated by Skyward’s launch. The company has already introduced its innovative casino chips feature to the market and has a packed roadmap that includes the release of three Roulette games and the same number of Blackjack Tables over the next 12 months.
The new releases showcase BetGames’ commitment to delivering cutting-edge and unique gaming experiences throughout diverse markets, with branded versions of all new titles available.
James Everett, VP for Africa and LatAm at BetGames, said: “As we continue to witness the rapid adoption of Skyward in Africa, particularly in the competitive South African market, we are thrilled by the enthusiastic response from players.
“With more South African operators set to join the Skyward family, we anticipate continued success and growth in the region.”
