PalaceBet.co.za will bring local bettors the opportunity to water on first class sports events.

According to the CEO of DraftKings, Shay Berka, the collaboration brings together two organizations that are committed to providing South African sports fans with a dynamic and innovative sports betting experience.

“We are delighted that DraftKings’ B2B technology is powering Peermont’s entry into sports betting, through which they can provide their customers with extensive markets, live betting opportunities, competitive pricing and localised payment options,” added Berka.

PalaceBet.co.za will use DraftKings’ industry-leading solution to enjoy access to a wide range of local and international sports including:

• Basketball
• Cricket
• Football
• Tennis
• Rugby

The manager of PalaceBet, Iain Gutteridge said that it was a “no brainer” to partner with DraftKings. Since the SA brand is looking to grow and compete on an international level, it was clear from the start that DraftKings would be able to offer a software solution that provides by variety and quality.

“Peermont has always been at the forefront of the latest trends and technology, therefore it made sense to partner with DraftKings as a leader in sports betting software,” said Nigel Atherton, Peermont’s CEO. “Together we’ll be able to offer a product that lives up to our high standards, and that provides a superior betting experience.”
