Betika and BetLion, leading online operators in Africa, have boosted their offering with slots and table games from Nektan‘s E-Lite platform, taking the supplier into the continent for the first time.

Through Nektan’s B2B platform E-Lite, the two African gaming companies have complemented their sports offering with the integration of hundreds of HTML5 developed slots and table games, now available on desktop and mobile devices.

Gary Shaw, founder and executive director at Nektan, said: “Africa is an emerging market that is rich with possibilities and presents us with opportunities to build our international expansion. As we continue to grow Nektan’s B2B software division, deals such as this highlight how our proprietary technology is fit for purpose in emerging markets all over the world.”

Jaydeep Chakravartty, VP commercials, at Nektan, added: “We’re thrilled to launch our E-Lite platform in Africa.

“As a nimble technology provider, we are able to efficiently integrate our content into large scale operator networks across the globe. Betika and BetLion will now be able to offer their customers a wide range of increasingly popular casino games.”

The operators both have significant presence across Africa and are among the seven Kenyan operators that saw their licenses renewed by the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board.

Nektan’s launch into Africa marks another important step as the platform provider continues to develop an extensive partner network across multiple jurisdictions and emerging markets – such as Africa – while also edging towards profitability, with the tipping point expected later this year or early in 2020.
