Leading Live Casino solutions provider, Evolution Gaming, has announced that it has secured the National Manufacturer license from the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board (WCGRB).

Continuing to Grow Presence in South Africa

Having received the license, the Sweden-based supplier is now authorized to offer its live casino products, and the ones by Ezugi, to all licensed gaming operators in South Africa.

Martin Carlesund, Group CEO at Evolution, stated that they were happy to have received the license.

“We look forward to opening up our world-leading live dealer games portfolio to operators and players in South Africa.

Ezugi founder and chief executive Kfir Kugler added:

“There is long-term potential in the regulated South African market to deliver Evolution-powered live dealer games and fixed odds solutions to operators and to bring players the most entertaining live games and live game show games available in the world, alongside exciting new betting products.”

Key Markets

In November 2018, Evolution announced that the company would acquire Ezugi. The firm finalized the deal at the beginning of 2019.

Carlesund said: “Thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in this market by our Ezugi subsidiary, we are entering a really exciting new vertical in this region.

Our world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting solutions too, will be available not only on desktop, tablet and smartphone but also in retail betting shops.”

Evolution Gaming is already present in many countries in the world. In Europe, the company has licences the UK, Belgium, Malta, Alderney, Romania and Latvia. In addition to these, it has one for British Columbia in Canada and New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the US. Most recently, Evolution signed an agreement with Parx Casino to further take hold of the regulated markets in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
