Pragmatic Play, a leading international game content provider to the global online casino market, will make its debut into the South African market in the coming weeks. The group will initially provide its premium Live Casino offering; however it will eventually roll out slots and virtual sports games for the benefit of South African players.
The news of Pragmatic Play’s entry into the South African gaming market comes after it was confirmed that the group has entered into a partnership deal with CDP Gaming Technologies to take some of its products live with the South African gaming brand, Yesplay.
The distribution partnership with the South African-licensedCDP Gaming Technologies means that CDP will be allowed to resell Pragmatic Play products in the local market. Players will be impressed with Pragmatic Player’s Live Casino offering which allows players the opportunity to enjoy the world of classic land-based games on an online platform. Players already familiar with Pragmatic Play’s Live Casino offering enjoy Live Blackjack, Live Roulette and Live Baccarat.
Solomon Godwin, the African Business Development Manager for Pragmatic Play said that his company was thrilled to partner with the Johannesburg-based CDP Gaming Technologies, which he called “a leading licensed betting platform provider in South Africa”, to be a distributor of Pragmatic Play’s products in the country.
"Through this partnership, South African gaming enthusiasts will have access to all of Pragmatic Play’s award-winning and innovative Live Dealer games and we are excited to make our debut in the market,” he added.
The Director and co-owner of CDP Gaming Technologies, Tebogo Makamo pointed out that Pragmatic Play is the latest provider to enter the South African market in partnership with the group. He said that CDP is very happy to be the first operator to offer Pragmatic Play’s 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,” he said.
