SOFT SWISS Releases In-depth Analysis of South Africa's iGaming 
MarketSouth Africa's iGaming sector is on a swift ascent, projected to amass revenues of around EUR 64.9 million by 2028, according to a comprehensive market overview by SOFTSWISS. As a leader in iGaming software solutions for 15 years, SOFTSWISS' report, enriched by its recent acquisition of Turfsport, a top provider of wagering solutions in South Africa, sheds light on the unique aspects of the South African market, including provincial licensing, sports betting, and gaming preferences.


 

Provincial Licensing Framework

The online gambling landscape in South Africa is regulated by nine provincial bodies under the National Gambling Board's oversight. These entities manage the licensing of various online gambling activities, including sports betting, within their jurisdictions. Despite national restrictions on interactive gaming, some provincial boards have expanded betting options, significantly boosting online betting's appeal and the revenue it generates, as Christian Neuberger, CEO of Turfsport, highlights.

The Sports Betting Phenomenon and Emerging Trends

Dominating the iGaming market, online sports betting is anticipated to reach EUR 24.3 million in 2024 out of the estimated EUR 51 million total iGaming industry revenue. This sector is witnessing a shift towards esports and fantasy sports, with a notable decline in horse racing's popularity among the youth. South Africa is leading in esports betting interest compared to several major countries, showcasing a diverse and evolving gaming preference landscape.

Gaming Preferences: Simplicity Meets Tradition

South Africans prefer straightforward and quick-result games like 'crash' games, alongside a continued interest in traditional casino experiences. Adapting to regulations, operators have innovated with numbers-style draw games that mirror classic casino games but comply as 'betting events.' The surge in mobile gaming, driven by increased mobile internet access, affordable data, and widespread smartphone use, is changing how operators reach their audience, emphasizing the need for mobile-friendly gaming solutions.

Vitali Matsukevich, COO at SOFTSWISS, remarks on the significance of the market report, stating, "Our focus on the South African market's potential is reinforced through this detailed overview. By combining SOFTSWISS' iGaming expertise with Turfsport's local insights, we're poised to meet the specific needs and opportunities within South Africa."

The SOFTSWISS market report provides a detailed examination of the iGaming scene in South Africa, from its development to player profiles and local trends, offering invaluable insights for stakeholders.
