Online casino play in South Africa is about to seriously heat up! Pragmatic Play, purveyor of quality slot titles such as Mustang Gold, Hot Chilli and the ever-popular John Hunter series, is about to make its debut in the SA online casino arena.
The iconic casino software supplier has partnered up with CDP Gaming Technologies to distribute its content countrywide via Yesplay, a popular South African betting site.
Pragmatic Play in SA
In terms of this deal, CDP Gaming Technologies (which holds a manufacturer’s license in South Africa) will be able to distribute Pragmatic Play products within the country.
Tebogo Makamo, director and co-owner of CDP Gaming Technologies, recently enthused:
“Pragmatic Play is the latest provider to enter the South African market in partnership with CDP Gaming Technologies, and we are extremely happy to be the first operator to offer their content to South African players.”
Initially, Pragmatic Play will enter the South African market with its suite of highly-acclaimed live casino games. This live casino portfolio includes variations of baccarat, roulette and blackjack and will be available on desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. Online casino slots and virtual sports will be made available in the very near future.
Global Domination Awaits
Pragmatic Play’s South African deal with CDP Gaming Technologies is just the latest strategic move as the company seeks to expand its brand globally.
They have recently inked partnership deals and commercial agreements with the likes of M88, BetPlay Buzz Bingo, StarVegas and Solbet, to take their products to the Asian, Colombian, UK, Italian and Peruvian markets to name a few.
Pragmatic Play has seen an opportunity to take its games to all corners of the globe and taken their shot, experiencing tons of commercial success thanks to these partnerships.
Wins All Round
The Pragmatic Play agreement certainly represents a solid win for both the South African online casino market and the company itself. Thanks to this deal, online players are now able to enjoy the software provider’s wide range of award-winning games.
For Pragmatic Play, this move gives them a foothold in an ever-growing African market.
According to Solomon Godwin, Pragmatic Play’s African business development manager:
“We are thrilled to partner with CDP Gaming Technologies, a leading Licensed Betting Platform provider in South Africa, to be a distributor of our products in the country… Through this partnership, South African gaming enthusiasts will have access to all of Pragmatic Play’s award-winning and innovative Live Dealer games and we are excited to make our debut in the market.”
If the success of their other deals is anything to go by, we expect great things to flow from this partnership.
