Betway has agreed a three-year-deal to become the official betting partner of the Mzansi Super League T20 – further adding to its cricket sponsorship portfolio.

The tournament, which takes place in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Durban, Nelson Mandela Bay, Cape Town and Paarl, is broadcast live in the UK and the first fixtures have already provided some great action.

Former South African international AB de Villiers impressed the locals as he hit fifty in vain as Tshwane Spartans were beaten by Cape Town Blitz, while Nelson Mandela Bay Giants beat the Jozi Stars.

Betway’s latest seven-figure-deal comes just months after it was confirmed as the official betting partner of both the men’s and women’s Cricket West Indies (CWI) sides.

Betway’s Anthony Werkman, said: “We are really pleased to be on board at the start of this new look T20 tournament.

“Being involved as a global partner shows the ambition Betway has to become a recognised worldwide supporter of elite professional sport, and the names appearing in this tournament certainly fit that bill.

“I am sure that the crowds will enjoy the games and we look forward to delivering an exciting experience for our customers too over the next three years.”

Cricket South Africa CEO, Thabang Moroe, added: “We are thrilled to have sports betting brand, Betway, on board to join our roster of sponsors, all whom have committed to helping us take Mzansi T20 to the world through the game of cricket.”

Praesepe put faith in Project pokers

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Project has received what it is describing as a ‘substantial order’ from Praesepe, part of the Gauselmann group of companies, for its specialist poker themed games comprising Red Hot Poker, Jacks or Better and the Cat C lite, Hi Lo Poker.

Confirming the order, Praesepe’s Head of Gaming Machines, Nigel Davis, said:We have a long and successful history of working with Project, one of the industry’s leading independent machine innovators. Project was the first to fully understand poker and over the last decade has mastered the art of translating the dynamics of the game into an array of stylish B4, Cat C and Cat C lite machines. We’ve found that poker attracts a different segment of the player base into our venues. They don’t perceive themselves as being slots players but poker players, which means that as an operator we are not simply cannibalising spend from one machine to another. Attracting new income is the lifeblood of any business and poker themed games bring new customers into our venues. I am confident the Project pokers that we have ordered will further enhance the fantastic Cashino customer experience.

Project Managing Director, Tony Boulton stated:We are delighted at the faith shown by Praesepe in our products. We have spent a lot of time understanding the psyche of the poker player and working hard to deliver new and enhanced experiences for poker aficionados. Poker doesn’t go out of fashion, it works across machine categories and it can be deployed either as a stand alone machine or, as we’ve demonstrated in 5 Star Games, as part of a mixed game style compendium. Key to its success and its longevity is the fact that it generates differentiated income courtesy of its’ distinct player base.
