SOFTSWISS Expands in South Africa with New Certifications
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

SOFTSWISS, a leading software supplier for the iGaming industry, announces its successful South African certification. The company has secured a Letter of Certification (LoC) from the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) for its Casino Platform and Sportsbook, now certified under the South African B2B manufacture licence. 

This licence was initially obtained by Turfsport, a seasoned South African software supplier with 35 years of industry experience. Earlier this year, SOFTSWISS strategically acquired a major stake in Turfsport, aligning their product portfolios. With this certification, SOFTSWISS expands its offerings in the burgeoning South African market.

Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS, comments: “South Africa will be one of the key markets for SOFTSWISS in the coming years. It has immense potential, driven by increasing internet penetration, lower mobile internet costs, and affordable mobile devices. Additionally, the local audience shows a strong interest in gambling, which further supports our decision to expand here.”

According to the InfoQuest survey, sports betting is the most common form of gambling in South Africa, with people placing bets on sports about 12 times a month on average. Casino gambling and horse betting are most popular on weekends, while lottery and online betting happen throughout the week because they are easily accessible online. The survey also reveals that the average gambler engages in three different types of gambling multiple times a month, underscoring the significant role of gambling in South African society.

The recently published SOFTSWISS South African market review highlights a growing interest in esports and fantasy sports, particularly among younger, tech-savvy demographics. Statista reports that 51% of South African survey participants are interested in esports betting, while the National Gambling Board (NGB) notes that 39% are inclined towards fantasy sports betting, especially in popular sports like soccer, cricket, and rugby. These trends align with global patterns and suggest a promising future for these sectors in the region.

The comprehensive SOFTSWISS South African market review is available for free and offers valuable insights into these emerging trends.

Springbok Casino Showcases Winter Survival Strategies of South Africa’s Wildlife in ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’ Feature

Springbok Casino Showcases Winter Survival Strategies of South Africa’s Wildlife in ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’ Feature
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

This July, Springbok Casino invites all players to celebrate ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’, a tribute to South Africa’s incredible wildlife and their unique adaptations to the winter season. From gentle elephants to resilient rhinos, these stories highlight the incredible behaviors and survival strategies of ten animals during the colder months.

Lion dads are the epitome of relaxation, often sleeping up to 20 hours a day. However, when danger threatens their pride, these seemingly lazy kings become fierce protectors. During the colder months, they rely on strong family bonds within the pride, while lionesses take advantage of the longer winter nights to stalk their prey more effectively.

With the vegetation thinning out, Elephants rely on their excellent memory and social knowledge to locate resources.

African Penguins are resilient birds who rely on their dense feathers to keep warm as they swim in the chilly waters hunting for fish.

Relying on their strong sense of smell, Rhinos spend the winter months locating the last remnants of edible plants and can often be seen visiting waterholes more frequently, ensuring they stay hydrated.

With less foliage, spotting prey becomes easier, and Eagles take full advantage with their keen eyesight. Eagle pairs use the winter to strengthen their bonds and are often seen soaring together and performing aerial displays.

Meerkats will dig deeper and more complex burrows to avoid the chill. Their intricate tunnel systems provide warmth and safety, allowing them to huddle together during cold nights.

The feature also highlights how Black-backed Jackals, kudus, Vervet Monkeys, and Baboons alter their foraging patterns and habits during the winter months.

To honour South Africa’s resilient wildlife, for the month of July, Springbok Casino is offering players 25 free spins on its new Cosmic Crusade slot.
