Pragmatic Play, the powerhouse iGaming content provider, has announced a breakthrough into the African iGaming market in collaboration with World Sports Betting, an established South African online casino operator.

Per the terms of the deal, Pragmatic Play will be delivering a wide array of titles covering online slots, RNG casino games, live casino games, and more. Patrons of World Sports Betting should look forward to seeing hit slot titles such as Striking Hot 5 and Happy Hooves along with long-standing player favourites such as Sweet Bonanza on the operator’s platform.

Pragmatic’s live casino titles include roulette, blackjack, and the exclusive Sweet Bonanza CandyLand game. The provider will also be granting World Sports Betting patrons access to instant-win games such as Wolf Gold Scratchcard and Queen of Gold Scratchcard.

Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “South Africa and the wider African market provides an opportunity for additional growth that we are keen to continue exploring.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with World Sports Betting and to deliver multiple verticals to their player base simultaneously through this agreement. We are very excited to see the reception our content receive from players.”

Warren Tannous, Chief Executive Officer at World Sports Betting, said: “World Sports Betting is excited to announce the partnership with Pragmatic Play. Its product is going to be a great addition to our existing offering, and we look forward to being able to roll this out shortly.” 

This is just latest move in Pragmatic Play’s global expansion efforts. The company recently secured a deal with Northstar Gaming in Ontario to power the operator’s platform.
