Mlungisi Mvoko, member of the executive council for Economic Development, has told that new technologies and gaming could lead to an increase in the revenue base for the Eastern Cape Province.

“It is still our fervent belief that through the infusion of new technologies in the 4th Industrial Revolution and optimal regulation, gaming could lead to an increase in the revenue base of the province,” Mvoko said while attending the 15th Gaming Regulators Africa Forum.

“It comes as no surprise that technology has had a remarkable impact on the gaming industry. So, if you are wondering how technology is impacting the gaming industry then you need to look no further than how a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin has revolutionized the realm of online users,” he added.

The 15th Gaming Regulators Africa Forum, themed “Fourth Industrial Revolution and its Impact on Gaming in Africa,” brings together representatives from countries which include Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Seychelles, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The conference focuses on global economy shifts and the impact of this on the global gaming industry. Mvoko told delegates that the shift to legalise gambling and the growth in the sector has benefited provincial treasury.

He said the industry had given consumers an additional choice of recreation, generated considerable tax revenue and increased employment. Mvoko said the provincial economy grew by an estimated R985 million over the last five years as a result of the gambling industry.

The Eastern Cape economy was predominantly driven by car manufacturing and tourism industries. But the ongoing global economic crisis has brought about an indirect decline in both industries.

Mvoko said the gaming and gambling industry must be boosted in a manner that supported and facilitated economic development.

Parimatch Africa signs deal with FAST TRACK CRM
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Parimatch Africa, the Africa-facing sports betting operator, has become the latest operator to switch to FAST TRACK CRM the real-time player engagement platform.

Parimatch Africa is quickly becoming a leading sports betting operation in Africa, with a large presence in Tanzania and expansion plans in other African countries. The launch of its online platform will help to secure a growing share of this emerging market, and its ambitious player engagement plans meant it was looking for a specialised CRM tool.

The operator identified FAST TRACK CRM as its partner, choosing the only CRM tool built specifically for the iGaming sector, which allows operators to coordinate all aspects of player engagement from one place using real-time data.

Lasha Gogiberidze, CEO of Parimatch Africa, said: “We have big plans over the next few months. With Africa being the fastest-growing region for sports betting, now is our moment to bring something new and exciting to this market.

“As part of our expansion plans, we know that we have to be able to engage with players in a way that others are not currently achieving in Africa, and FAST TRACK CRM is the tool we need to be able to do this.”

FAST TRACK CRM is built entirely on real-time data, and eliminates the traditional, manual, ad hoc campaign process – dragging lists and uploading in multiple systems to run a single campaign.

FAST TRACK CRM coordinates all aspects of communication and rewards and, most importantly, is a tool designed specifically for iGaming operations workflows.

Simon Lidzén, CEO of FAST TRACK has high hopes for the supplier’s first partnership in the African market.

Lidzén said: “We are really eager to establish a successful partnership with Parimatch Africa in one of the most exciting and fast-growing markets in our industry. Our initial discussions have exposed some very interesting opportunities for engagement that are unique to the African market, and we are looking forward to working on a specialised solution for the team.”

 

The strength of FAST TRACK CRM’s offering was confirmed by it being named Multi Channel Supplier of the Year at the EGR B2B Awards 2019.
