Initially, the Gibraltar-based supplier will take its live casino suite, which is available from desktops and laptops to smartphones, tablets and VR gadgets, live throughout the nation, while its slots and virtual sports products are to follow in the “near future.”
Director and Co-Owner for CDP Gaming Technologies, Tebogo Makamo commented on the new partnership…
“Pragmatic Play is the latest provider to enter the South African market in partnership with CDP Gaming Technologies and we are extremely happy to be the first operator to offer their content to South African players.
“CDP and Pragmatic Play will strive to bring great innovative and award-winning games to the thriving gambling industry in South Africa.”
The deal is just one in a series of the provider’s continued global expansion, having secured various commercial agreements, including its most recent with Colombian operator BetPlay, as well as other LatAm interests Bplay in Argentina, Bplay Paraguay, SellatuParley in Venezuela and BetConnections, and in the Dominican Republic with Superbets, and Peru with Solbet.
2021 has also seen Pragmatic ink deals with Mansion’s Asian-facing brand M88, alongside UK operator Buzz Bingo and SkillOnNet’s brand PlayOJO, Greentube’s Italian B2C brand, StarVegas.it., and in Bulgaria with EGT Digital.
