DraftKings Inc. and Peermont Hotels, Gaming and Resorts, a leading South African gaming and hospitality group, today announced the successful recent launch of PalaceBet (PalaceBet.co.za), a mobile and online sportsbook powered by DraftKings’ cutting-edge B2B sports betting technology.

“This collaboration brings together two organizations committed to providing South Africa’s sports fans with the most dynamic and innovative sports betting experience,” said Shay Berka, DraftKings’ Chief International Officer. “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.”

Peermont will utilize DraftKings’ full sportsbook and platform solution to provide a best-in-class sports betting experience for South African sports fans, who will have access to a range of innovative product features including Your Bet and Pulse Betting. Data integrations with Betgenius and IMG will ensure that Peermont’s customers have access to a wide range of local and international sports including basketball, cricket, football, tennis, and rugby with live betting opportunities as well as Lucky Numbers.

“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.”

The collaboration with DraftKings will enable Peermont to leverage its significant expertise in the land-based casino environment to bring a world class level of service to the online sports betting market and provide a unique betting experience to its players.

“It was a no-brainer to partner with DraftKings,” says Iain Gutteridge, PalaceBet’s General Manager. “The way we’re looking to grow and to compete on an international scale, we knew that DraftKings could offer the software solution so that we could not only offer variety, but quality to our clients.”

SoftSwiss extends its global presence to African region
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

SoftSwiss is excited to announce its official expansion into the African continent. As the company continues extending its global presence, this month SoftSwiss received a license for Nigeria. This is another great milestone for SoftSwiss in entering new regulated markets.

Nigeria is the largest country in Africa, with 200 million inhabitants, whilst also being a gambling country with an extremely developed regulation for sports betting and lotteries. Furthermore, it is also one of the most competitive and fast-developing markets in gambling in Africa. The size of the population and exponentially growing internet exposure create the right conditions for online gambling companies to operate in. 

It has to be noted, the African region as a whole is more focused on sports betting rather than online casinos. Now after the official launch of the SoftSwiss Sportsbook, the company is ready to build up its presence in this exciting new region.

Ivan Montik, Founder of SoftSwiss commented on this event: “Entering the Nigerian market marks an exceptional turning point for SoftSwiss, as we’re expanding our global presence to a brand new continent. Nigeria is considered one of the most fast-paced iGaming markets in terms of growth and we cannot wait to begin providing our services there. Nigeria is a great achievement for us and we’re planning on moving even further into other regulated markets” .
