Authentic Gaming, the premium casino provider, has once again expanded its geographical reach after making its debut in the emerging South African market with existing operator partner, Betway.

Back in 2016 Betway were removed from the accredited casino section here on Casinomeister and currently reside in our Grey Zone.

Under the deal, Betway players in South Africa will be able to access the provider’s cutting-edge studio-based casino titles and auto-roulette games for the first time as the operator looks to build out its live dealer offering.

Studio tables include Grand, 24/7, Casino Floor, Nightclub and Viva Las Vegas, with each set against elaborate and ornate backgrounds with highly trained dealers that ensure gameplay is fun and engaging. Players can also enjoy Authentic Gaming’s Cricket Roulette, which is only available to Betway players. This is a one-off, dedicated environment table and the first cricket-themed live roulette title in the world.

The table is set against the backdrop of a live scoreboard where players can keep up to date with all of the action and scores from the Indian Premier League and other cricket leagues and tournaments.

This means players can kill two birds with one stone; they can stay on top of the latest scores while also enjoying a few rounds of live roulette and all from their smartphone or tablet.

In addition, Betway will also add a series of Auto Roulette titles to its live dealer portfolio, including Classic, Speed and VIP.

Authentic Gaming’s entry into South Africa forms part of a wider strategy to enter regulated and regulating jurisdictions and provide operators with the widest range of innovative, entertaining and top-quality live roulette products as the vertical continues to see unprecedented growth.

Magdalena Podhorska-Okolow, CCO of Authentic Gaming, said: “International expansion is a priority for Authentic Gaming right now and we are delighted to have entered the fast-growing South African market with our long-standing partner, Betway.”

“We see huge potential for casino in the region and believe our suite of studio-based and auto roulette titles will add variety and quality to Betway’s portfolio, allowing it to deliver a superior online experience to its players.”

Phillip Superamonien at Betway, said: “South Africa is a market with huge potential and we believe betting on casino games will be very popular among players in the region as we’ve seen tremendous growth in recent months.”

“We have been partnered with Authentic Gaming for several years now so we know just how engaging and entertaining its games are. They make for a great addition to our game portfolio in South Africa and look forward to seeing our players enjoy the incredible experience its titles offer.”
