South Africa Welcomes Live Dealer Software Supplier Evolution Gaming
License gaming operators across South Africa will soon be able to add exciting new content to their platforms, thanks to the live dealer software supplier, Evolution Gaming, entering the local market. It was reported that Evolution Gaming, and its subsidiary Ezugi, have managed to secure a national manufacturer license from the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.
This WCGRB license essentially allows Evolution Gaming and Ezugi to roll out their products to other licensed gaming operators in South Africa.
Local players aren’t strangers to Ezugi games, which have been available in the South African market for quite some time. In 2018, Ezugi was purchased by Evolution, which paid nearly R270 million for the company.
The chief executive of the Evolution Group, Martin Carlesund said that, thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in the South African gambling market by Ezugi, Evolution was entering an exciting new vertical in the 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,” he added.
Also speaking about the deal was Ezugi founder and chief executive, Kfir Kugler who said that there was long-term potential in the regulated South African market to deliver Evolution-powered live dealer games and fixed odds solutions to operators. He said that he was happy to bring players the most entertaining live games and live game shows available in the world, complimented by exciting new betting products.
Evolution Gaming has for a long time been considered the king of live dealer games in the global online gambling world. Many online casinos incorporate live dealer games such as Live Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Craps and Live Poker from Evolution’s excellent portfolio.
Very recently, the French land-based casino operator, Groupe Partouche, joined with Evolution Gaming to launch a new online casino product in Switzerland, where players can enjoy games on mobile, table and desktop platforms.
