Playgon completes partnership with intelligent gaming to South African market

Playgon Games has entered the South African gaming market having completed the Software Licensing & Distribution Agreement with Intelligent Gaming (Igl), a fully-licensed manufacturer of gaming products in South Africa.

Through their platform, Igl will distribute Playgon’s proprietary Vegas Lounge premium suite of mobile live dealer casino games which have been uniquely designed for both the new gamer and operator in mind, offering lightening fast functionality and extensive player and Operator options, while being optimized for one-handed play in portrait mode.

In addition, Igl will onboard its first Operator, Supabets: a leading sports betting and casino brand with a vast retail and digital business in South Africa and other African countries including Nigeria, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. Supabets is one of the most popular online gambling companies in Africa, and continues to experience dramatic growth year after year.

“The African Gaming market is an incredible green field opportunity for Playgon’s product” states Darcy Krogh, Ceo Playgon Games. “As we commence commercial operations and begin to monetize our mobile focused live dealer games, we are excited to partner with one of the premier online gaming aggregators in South Africa and develop our business together in this expanding market.”

“We are always on the hunt for innovative new content to bring to our clients for the South African market” says Marc Plaxton-Harrison, Ceo Intelligent Gaming. “Playgon’s live dealer product is well thought out from a players perspective in our mobile driven marketplace. We look forward to working with the team at Playgon.”

The South African Gaming Market is expected to generate gross gaming revenue in 2020 of R34.8 billion and is expected to grow by a 6 percent compound annual rate. Casino games alone make up 72 percent of the revenue generated from gaming. South Africa has a very healthy gambling industry. One in every ten South Africans participates in gaming.*
