International Game Technology PLC  announced that it has replaced a competitor’s system with its IGT ADVANTAGE® Casino Management System (CMS) at the newly reopened Carousel Casino in North West Province, South Africa, which now features the country’s first-ever deployment of the IGT ADVANTAGE Resort Wallet™ carded cashless module.

“We selected the IGT ADVANTAGE CMS for the Carousel re-launch due to its proven stability, user-friendly configuration, and ability to automate more parts of the business, which frees our staff to focus on delivering a superior gaming experience to patrons,” said Mario Morfou, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Lakama Resorts and Casino. “In addition, IGT’s on-the-ground support team implemented the new system flawlessly within a compressed timeframe, reinforcing IGT’s status as a leader in systems service and customer support.”

“The delivery of our IGT ADVANTAGE solution to the newly reopened Carousel Casino demonstrates the power and reliability of our system in South Africa’s Class III casino vertical,” said Mark MacCombie, IGT Vice President, Sales and Operations, EMEA. “Carousel can now benefit from IGT’s proven solution to maximize floor performance, generate incremental revenue, simplify operations, and increase player loyalty.”

The Carousel Casino will be deploying a proven suite of IGT ADVANTAGE products that include Machine Accounting, Patron Management, Cage and Table Accounting, and Table Manager, as well as several powerful marketing products such as Carded Lucky Coin and M5. M5 is a powerful tool enabling dynamic HTML5 content creation for the sbNexGen® II multimedia player tracking display, giving Carousel patrons a modern casino experience with enhanced interfaces, targeted messaging, and engaging bonusing.

The IGT ADVANTAGE CMS, which connects 400 machines at the property, provides a complete toolset to help drive business outcomes and improve operational efficiency. Its breadth of features is based on nearly three decades of use in the field, and includes the most comprehensive and flexible cashless offering available.

The IGT ADVANTAGE Resort Wallet carded cashless module maximizes the guest experience at Carousel with a true single-card solution, giving players the option to easily move funds from game to game using their club card. Integration with Carousel’s patron management and point-of-sale systems means players gain quick and easy access to their gaming balances, players club rewards, and property services and amenities using a single card, reducing operational costs, increasing club membership, and driving carded play.

The Resort Wallet solution is a turnkey, add-on product for IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system customers who want to give players a cashless wagering option through a physical loyalty card, a mobile app, or both. It is also available with IGTPay™, the Company’s proprietary, fully integrated external funding payments gateway.

Carousel Casino has been one of South Africa’s most popular entertainment destinations since it first opened in 1991. Following closure in March 2020 due to pandemic-related restrictions, the site was acquired by Betanogenix affiliate Lakama Resorts and Casino, a subsidiary company of the Lakama Group of Companies which holds interests in multiple gaming operations in the country, including Class II (bingo) and Independent Site Operator (ISO) locations. IGT has supplied Betanogenix with the majority of the operator’s electronic bingo terminals since 2017.

Gambling giant Betsson Group has agreed on a deal with Incentive Games, to provide a suite of titles to launch on its Betsafe brand in Kenya.

The British games provider, based in Edinburgh, has helped establish several brands in the African market – as well as its free-to-play customer acquisition and retention games, Incentive Games offers bespoke African virtual and jackpot products.

Incentive Games’ products have proven to be powerful customer acquisition and retention tools, because Incentive Games has specifically developed the games for markets where cellular data costs can be a significant barrier for users.
Plus, Incentive Games’ offerings are sport-focused, which appeal to players that are not usually drawn to casino products – a huge draw in regions with limited live sport.

John Gordon, CEO of Incentive Games, said: “We are delighted to be aligned with the Betsson Group and providing bespoke free-to-play and pay-to-play games for the Betsafe brand. We do not take a “copy and paste” approach to deliver games for clients. We pride ourselves on providing real value, and we are looking forward to helping another gaming brand launch effectively in the region.”

Ciara Nic Liam, Product Director at Betsson Group, said: “Africa is a new region for Betsson and we see its potential as one of the fastest growing online sports betting regions in the world. As with other regions, we are taking a localised approached to the Kenyan market.
“To that end, we believe offering free to play and pay to play virtual sports games will be a major acquisition channel for us, and Incentive Games is one of the leaders in this area. We look forward to launching its games to our players shortly.”

BtoBet, together with its Certified Partner for Africa STM Gaming, has entered into a deal with Nigerian bookmaker BetXperience for the provision of the Neuron 3 platform to power its betting shops and online channels.

BetXperience will be integrating the Neuron 3 platform to capitalise on the digital transformation characterising the local betting market in Nigeria from retail to online gambling.

Taking advantage of BtoBet’s coverage of 65 different sports, BetXperience will be able to provide a sportsbook complete with odds for over 25,000 events per month. The sportsbook offering will also be complimented by a wide portfolio of other verticals such as online and live casino, and a selection of virtual sports.

“We are glad to announce a partnership with BetXperience. The Nigerian market is one of the most advanced when it comes to the growth registered in the online channels. Nonetheless retail is still very much the predominant channel. BetXperience’s approach strikes the right balance, whereby through Neuron 3’s 360° omnichannel approach – where all the channels are interlinked with one another – players are able to place and follow their bets on whichever channel or device of their preference. We will ensure the support and development of BetXperience’s strategy to become a point of reference in the local market,” Sabrina Soldà, Chief Marketing Officer of BtoBet, said.

“In BtoBet we have found the ideal technological partner to power all our brand and all its channels. A true omnichannel approach was fundamental for us, given the possibilities that this approach provides us in terms of not only providing our players with an optimal betting experience, but also cross-selling and retention opportunities. I am positive that this will be a fruitful and lengthy partnership,” Gideon Odushola, Director of BetXperience, said.
