The suppliers have teamed up with Supabets, a South African operator, who will now become the first in the country with a slots selection.
To make this deal a reality, approval was secured from South Africa’s market regulator, the Mpumalanga Economic Regulator (MER), permitting NetEnt and Red Tiger to supply Supabets with an initial 175 games.
Evolution has worked with the operator before. Prior to Supabets’ recent expansion into the world of slots, they inked a deal for the supplier’s live casino games. As a result, this new agreement “strengthens the bonds between the two companies.”
“We are delighted that we have the opportunity to expand our partnership with Supabets and that they will now have access to our portfolio of NetEnt and Red Tiger slot games,” said Dean Finder, CEO at Evolution Services SA.
“We hope their players will enjoy the diversity of the portfolio, as there truly is something available for everyone to enjoy.”
Supabets was launched back in 2008 and operates both land-based and online betting and gaming. Its reach extends beyond South Africa, stretching across Ghana, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
The operator is owned by Intelligent Gaming, whose Managing Director, Marc Palxton-Harrison, commented: “We are ecstatic to finally have MER approval for the launch of the NetEnt and Red Tiger world-class slots offering.
“We are confident they will do very well with Supabets, and we look forward to adding the portfolio to our remaining SA clients.”
