Betway Provides Solar Powered Kiosks to 10 Fintech Point of Sale Operators in Lagos
Nigeria’s premium online and gaming brand, Betway, is making a significant impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and small business owners in Lagos. The brand has announced its support for 10 Fintech point of sale (POS) operators in the city with solar powered kiosks to aid their businesses. This is part of the company’s commitment to support small businesses and entrepreneurs in Nigeria.
Understanding the pain that these POS operators go through daily due to the power situation in the country and their lean business capital that makes acquiring a power-generating setup a difficult necessity for most of them, the solar-powered kiosks are equipped with a solar panel and inverter to ensure that the Fintech POS operators have access to reliable and efficient power supply. This will enable them to conduct their transactions with ease and provide an enhanced customer experience. The kiosks are also weatherproof and can withstand harsh environmental conditions, making them suitable for use in any location.
Betway has been at the forefront of supporting communities, small businesses, and entrepreneurs in Nigeria. In 2022, the company supported flood-ravaged communities in Bayelsa state with a donation of ₦5,000,000 in food supplies and daily needs products, the distribution of which was coordinated by the Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency in conjunction with the National Emergency Management Agency. The brand’s CSR initiatives have made a significant impact on the lives of people in these communities.
Otunba Kunle Olamuyiwa, Chief Operations Officer for Betway in Nigeria, said: “We are committed to supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Our focus is on empowering these businesses to thrive and contribute to the growth of the economy. The solar-powered kiosks will help these Fintech POS operators to operate more efficiently and serve their customers better.”
Otunba Olamuyiwa further said that many of the POS operators do not have good enough kiosks or shops to do their businesses with lots of them operating under umbrellas and being at the mercy of the weather. He noted that for the beneficiaries of the kiosks, this will be a great upliftment and their businesses will surely thrive better than before.
The Fintech POS operators who have received the solar-powered kiosks expressed their gratitude to Betway for the support. They noted that the kiosks have improved their businesses and enabled them to provide better services to their customers. They also commended the betting company for its commitment to supporting small businesses in Nigeria.
Larry, one of the beneficiaries and a Polytechnic graduate who went into the POS business because he could not secure employment after graduating from the higher institution, said: “I am still in shock, and I have not yet fully realised the fact that I now have a state-of-the-art kiosk to do my business. I saw the video requesting that any POS operator in Lagos who is in need of one should indicate so on Betway’s Twitter handle, and I immediately took the step of faith and asked my friends to support me so I could be selected. I am indeed grateful to Betway for this support.”
Dotun Adepegba, Marketing Manager for Betway in Nigeria said that this initiative is in line with Betway’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to support the development of small businesses in Nigeria. According to him, the company is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of people in the communities where they operate.
“We did not stop at giving the beneficiaries kiosks to enhance their businesses, we also ensured that they passed through a short financial training program that will allow them run their businesses profitably,” he said.
Honoré Gaming cuts the ribbon on new Senegal office
Tech and platform supplier continues to establish itself as the go-to provider in Africa with the opening of a brand new facility in Dakar
Honoré Gaming, the leading technology and platform provider to operators serving the fast-growing African market, has opened the doors to a brand new, state-of-the-art office facility in the capital of Senegal, Dakar.
The occasion was marked with a ceremony attended by Honoré Gaming employees as well as members of the senior management team from National Lottery operator, Lonase, with Lonase CEO Mr Lat Diop giving a speech. This was followed by a performance from famous Senegalese singer, Youssou N’Dour.
Honoré Gaming has established itself as the go-to technology partner for land-based and online sportsbook and casino operators in the African region, with a particular focus on French-speaking markets where its operators dominate in the likes of Congo Brazzaville, Chad and of course, Senegal.
The opening of its Dakar office comes at a time when Honoré Gaming continues to focus on French-speaking African markets while expanding into English-speaking African markets and assessing opportunities to deploy its retail and online technology in emerging jurisdictions such as LatAm.
Africa has been on operator radars for a number of years now, but in recent months several tier-one brands have made their move in the region. This has seen a spike in interest from tier-two operators and local betting brands looking to leverage the opportunity on the table.
Honoré Gaming is here to support these brands, and the power players, as they launch their sportsbooks and casinos in each jurisdiction. Its retail and online technologies and platforms allow operators to truly localise and personalise their proposition for each market.
This is crucial to success with player preferences different across the continent and operators having to meet different regulatory requirements in each country they target. Honoré’s solutions have been designed to allow them to do this with ease.
Christophe Casanova, COO at Honoré Gaming, said: “We are delighted to open an office in Senegal we continue to establish ourselves as the leading technology and platform provider in Africa. Senegal is a key market for us and our partners, so it’s great to have a presence in the country from where we can better support land-based and online operators.
“Africa has been a market of interest for a number of years now, but there is real momentum across the region with more and more brands wanting to get in on the action. Our platform and suite of solutions have been designed specifically for Africa, allowing operators to deploy sportsbook and casino experiences that not only meet but exceed player expectations.
“That we can no offer this from an office based in the heart of Senegal is a major milestone for Honoré Gaming and sets us up for continued success.”
