BetConstruct’s South African debut will happen next month after the gaming software provider earned approval from the regulator.
The Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board has certified the firm, and it is set to launch sports betting services in November. BetConstruct will be working with Gbets, their partner for a launch in Lesotho last month.
BetConstruct hold a National Manufacturer licence in South Africa but had to seek approval from the board to launch their product. That approval was granted after the board received a report from BMM Test Labs, and as a result, Gbets will provide the full BetConstruct platform to local punters.
Karine Kocharyan, the Head of Licensing said that the approval was a big step for BetConstruct’s South African expansion:
“This certification is another move forward to expanding our supply throughout South Africa. 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.”
Gbets, which is part of the Goldrush Group, will have access to all of the BetConstruct tools thanks to this deal. These include voice activated betting assistance and live multi play. They will also be able to offer online casino and live casino gaming for South African players.
Gbets launched in Lesotho and Mozambique in recent months, and it is the success of the former launch that has led them to expand into South Africa.
2019 has been a big year for BetConstruct. Back in April they expanded their fantasy sports reach through a deal with Atlantis Gaming and the US Pro Football Hall of Fame. And in July, they released their new voice activated bet assistant, Hoory on Vbet.
