Leading live dealer casino game supplier Evolution Gaming has entered the regulated South African gaming market.
Thanks to the new deal the Latvian company penned with local gabling operator Sunbet, a new era begins.
Read on to see what the new partnership means for both sides of the deal.
South African Paradise
Last month, Evolution entered South Africa with online gaming services for SunBet. Under the contract, Evolution Gaming will be supplying SunBet with cutting-edge live casino games.
Sunbet is the online betting arm of Sun International Hotel and Casino Group, through an agreement with Bede Gaming.
Starting with September 2021, SunBet is richer for a few dozen live dealer games. Some of the notable releases include the entire Lightning series, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, Dream Catcher, and Crazy Time. Moreover, Evolution will be putting forward its branded game Live Deal Or No Deal. Also, their popular poker variants like Casino Hold’em and Three Card Poker are part of the deal. Lastly, Evolution will be adding the entire First Person suite, including First Person American Roulette.
Since Evolution also owns Ezugi, their live games will follow in the coming weeks.
Additionally, Sunbet has recently upgraded to a bookmaker, so its official name is Sunbet Online Sportsbook.

Sun International is a leading gambling name in South Africa and owner of Palace of the Lost City at Sun City. It lauds an abundant portfolio of assets, including 5-star hotels and the world’s best resorts.
Looking to further enrich their catalog, Sun is happy to partner with Evolution. The new live dealer games will drive player engagement and retention.
Nitesh Matai, General Manager: Sports Betting at Sun International, has spoken about the new partnership.
“The world-class Evolution and Ezugi online live dealer offering now takes our online service for our customers to another level.

Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA, was enthusiastic and said:
“Our live dealer solutions are extremely complementary to the existing Sun International and SunBet offering, not only in terms of replicating the land-based gaming experience but also by extending and diversifying their existing and very strong online sports betting offering.”
