Global mobile online gaming solutions and services provider, Nektan, has announced the signing of agreements that have seen the Africa-facing iGaming sites at Betika.com and BetLion.ke integrate its E-Lite content aggregation and bonusing platform.
The Gibraltar-headquartered innovator used an official Tuesday press release to detail that the business-to-business deals will give both of the Kenya-licensed domains the ability to offer their players a plethora of HTML-friendly video slots and table games from some of the world’s most prominent developers including Yggdrasil Gaming Limited, Booming Games Limited and Pragmatic Play Limited.
Gary Shaw, Executive Director for Nektan, used the press release to declare that BetLion.ke and Betika.com ‘have significant presence in Africa’ and are constituents of a seven-member club that was recently re-licensed by the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board. The executive also described his firm’s E-Lite advance as ‘an easily-integrated add-on module’ that allows online casino operators to provide iGaming aficionados with ‘a breadth of premium gaming content’ via desktop and mobile devices.
