BetConstruct is to open its sportsbook in South Africa with Gbets before the end of the year after the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board has issued the requisite certification.
The fully managed sports betting system was established under the country’s national manufacturer license from BetConstruct, while the provincial board’s letter of approval was based on a document from South Africa’s BMM Test Labs.
Gbets, which relaunched its online betting and gaming business on the BetConstruct platform in Lesotho last month, has set the planned “end of November” date for South Africa to go live.
“This certification is another move forward to expanding our supply throughout South Africa,” said Karine Kocharyan, Head of Licensing and Certification at BetConstruct.
“We are happy to start this journey with one of our biggest partners in the region – Gbets, who is planning to relaunch their operations via our platform end of November.”
Dhrupal Amin, the online gaming managing director of Goldrush Group, Gbets ‘ parent company, added the following: “BetConstruct represents the cutting edge of betting technology. Innovations such as Hoory, the voice activated betting assistant, and live multi-play are just some of the leading innovations that attracted Gbets to the BetConstruct technology platform.
“Gbets has made a significant investment in furthering our online gaming operations. We currently operate online gaming operations in South Africa, Lesotho and Mozambique.
“In September 2019 we relaunched our online business in Lesotho on the BetConstruct solution which includes, sports betting online casino and live casino products. The market response has exceeded our expectations, and we are seeing strong growth in new customer acquisition.”
He concluded: “Towards the end of November this year, South African betting consumers can look forward to an innovative, world class betting experience with product features new to the South African sports betting landscape.”
