NIGERIA ONLINE Nigeria is African market with greatest online potential, say SBC Digital Summit Africa experts 3 years ago Iwo Bulski Post Views: 708 Nigeria is the African market with the greatest potential for online betting and gaming operators, a survey of the expert speakers at this week’s SBC Digital Summit Africa virtual conference and exhibition has found. The online event on 6 – 7 October will take an in-depth look at every aspect of the future of the industry in Africa, with invaluable input from senior executives with on-the-ground experience of working for operators and suppliers in markets across the continent. Ahead of the event, SBC asked those experts which African nation offers the best prospects for online operators. Nigeria came out on top with 31% of the vote, just ahead of South Africa on 28%, suggesting that there is still opportunity for significant growth in two of the continent’s most-established regulated markets. A number of speakers were excited about the potential of online gambling in Ghana and Kenya (12% each), while there were also votes for the emerging markets in Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Democratic Republic of the Congo. The future of many of those markets will come under scrutiny on the first morning of the conference.
