Leading platform provider to attend SBEA, SBWA, GEFA and ICE Africa amongst other African iGaming events and conferences

After announcing its Latin American Technifying Tour earlier last month, BtoBet is keen to maintain its momentum also in the African market. The leading platform provider’s Technifying Tour in Africa will take it to the most popular and anticipated iGaming events and conferences that will take place locally throughout the year.

Sabrina Solda, BtoBet’s Chief Marketing Officer, said that Africa is a fascinating market, that is constantly evolving and bridging the gap to the more mature scenarios. “Whilst most still consider the African iGaming context to be in its embryonic stage, this is a market that is set to make quantum leaps in the short to medium term. BtoBet is widely considered as a gateway for operators to enter the African market, boasting a strong presence across the vast majority of the local regulated markets, and putting at its partners’ disposal advanced yet adaptable technological solutions that allow licensees to deliver an optimal betting experience despite the technological challenges that the scenario offers. Through this Technifying Tour we aim to further maximise and cement our position in the continent.”

Amongst other events BtoBet is set to attend Sports Betting East Africa (SBEA) in Uganda, Sports Betting West Africa (SBWA) that is set to take place in Nigeria, the Gaming Expo Francophone Africa (GEFA) in the Ivory Coast, and South Africa’s ICE Africa.

MERKUR sun shines over the roof of Africa

Gauselmann employees from Serbia climb Kilimanjaro

To experience the sunrise from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro: this was the goal of four employees from Gauselmann subsidiary MERKUR Games d.o.o., which consolidates the Group’s activities in Serbia. During a six-day expedition, together with ten other adventurers, they climbed the highest mountain on the African continent – to be rewarded with a breathtaking view from Uhuru Peak, at 5,895 metres above sea level.

“It was an incredible battle of wills, with the forces of nature, patience and our own endurance,” says Branko Kokir, Managing Director at MERKUR Games d.o.o. and initiator of the expedition, looking back on the feat. Climbing for six to eight hours, the team covered ten kilometres on foot and overcame a difference in altitude of 1,000 metres each day. From grasslands, alpine meadows and tropical rainforests, moorlands and desert plateaus, to snow- and ice-covered regions: day by day, the team pressed onward through different climatic zones in their quest to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro. At an altitude of 4,700 metres above sea level, the adventurers set off on the final leg: the ascent to Uhuru Peak. In the final nighttime push, the team covered 5.8 kilometres in 7.5 hours before reaching the cross on the summit in time for sunrise just before 7 a.m. and proudly displaying a flag with the MERKUR sun symbol over Uhuru Peak.

A cameraman who documented the expedition with his camera and interviews was also part of the 14-member team. The material is being broadcast in six 30-minute episodes on “Sport Klub”, the leading sports channel in the Balkans. The MERKUR sun also features as a faithful companion on the trek to Africa’s highest peak: during the entire journey, the team members wore T-shirts, sew-on badges, caps and carried flags. The local population was thrilled to be given T-shirts and footballs with the MERKUR sun as a gift from the Gauselmann Group. “Climbing Kilimanjaro is a remarkable feat of will. I am immensely proud that our Serbian employees took the MERKUR sun along for the trip and shone it over the roof of Africa,” says company founder and Chairman of the Management Board Paul Gauselmann.

The Gauselmann Group is represented in Serbia by its MERKUR Games d.o.o. subsidiary. The company opened the first gaming arcade there in 2012 under the MERKUR Automat Klub brand. In 2017, business activities in the Serbian market were systematically expanded through strategic partnerships. With a 50 per cent equity holding respectively in the two companies Balkan Bet and MERKUR Xtip, the Gauselmann Group is optimally positioned with some 140 land-based venues as well as online in the Serbian Republic.
