Evolution Gets South African License

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Live dealer software provider Evolution Gaming has been granted a gaming license by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board and will now be able to offer their games and subsidiary Ezugi's titles within South Africa.

Evolution is known for their live dealer table games, which are broadcast from a studio and deliver an almost land-based casino experience for players. The company has blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, and licensed games like Monopoly all within their library

Commenting on the licensing Evolution CEO Martin Carlesund said, "We are delighted to have received this license and look forward to opening up our world-leading live dealer games portfolio to operators and players in South Africa. Thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in this market by our Ezugi subsidiary, we are entering a really exciting new vertical in this region. Our world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting solutions too, will be available not only on desktop, tablet and smartphone but also in retail betting shops."

Ezugi CEO Kfir Kugler added: "There is long-term potential in the regulated South African market to deliver Evolution-powered live dealer games and fixed odds solutions to operators and to bring players the most entertaining live games and live Game Show games available in the world, alongside exciting new betting products."

As of press time we don't have a list of providers that will be working with Evolution in the country, nor do we have a timetable for launch.
