Gaming technology platform and services provider Nektan is to enter Africa using E-Lite, the company’s B2B content distribution platform.

An emerging, rapidly growing market, Africa is one of a number of regions that Nektan is targeting as part of its global expansion strategy.

Following the integration of E-Lite, two of Africa’s leading gaming companies, Betika and BetLion, have complemented their sports offering with the integration of hundreds of HTML5 developed slots and table games, now available across all desktop and mobile devices.

Both operators have significant presence in Africa and are amongst the seven Kenyan operators who had their licenses renewed by the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board.

The launch into Africa marks another important landmark for Nektan’s B2B division, which maintains a pipeline of partners across multiple jurisdictions and emerging markets.

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.”
