Game-Tec Deliver Advanced Sports Betting technology for Uganda, Cameron...eyes Nigeria
Game-Tec Labs of the USA and KEBA AG of Austria has continued to record the successful launchs in Uganda, Cambodia and Cameron. KEBA and Game-Tec Labs jointly deliver the system to Gaming International, a licensed sports betting operator in several African countries.
The SportsNet system provides fixed-odds and pools type sports betting capabilities. The KeWin terminals provide for advanced touch-screen betting on a small footprint, low power platform ideally suited for the Uganda marketplace. The terminals provide full function features in a single housing, including touch screen, high resolution thermal printer, communications, and bet slip / ticket scanner. Game-Tec Labs also developed the software for the KeWin terminals.
Built on Game-Tec Labs’ proven and secure GT-NET platform, SportsNet allows sports betting operators to efficiently and effectively manage a wide range of sports and event betting options. Operators can define nearly any fixed-odds bet type they want without the need for a software change due to the SportsNet unique design. Real-time risk management features allow an operator to react quickly to betting patterns and control liability exposure.
The betting technology power-house was also recently chosen by Société Africain de Jeux (SAJE) for the provision of its GT-NET gaming platform and related services. SAJE is operating a nationwide on-line network of gaming terminals throughout the country of Cameroon. Game-Tec Labs provides its advanced GT-NET gaming platform, gaming terminals, and related implementation services.
SAJE operates under the Le Lotto brand initially in the major cities of Douala and Youndé with the number of points of sale eventually reaching to over 2000 throughout the entire country. Game-Tec Labs has designed a reliable and secure network solution utilizing data services provided by MTN, the leading mobile network operator in Africa. The provision of other value-added services from the GT-NET platform, such as mobile top-ups and prepaid card solutions, is planned for implementation later this year.
Andy Brunn, CEO of Game-Tec Labs, stated “We are thrilled to be in partnership with SAJE. The African gaming market represents numerous opportunities for growth and we expect our partnership to extend to other countries over time. The Game-Tec Labs GT-NET gaming system provides a reliable, secure, and cost effective platform from which SAJE can grow its business.”
The company has recently entered into advanced discussions with a company in Nigeria with the aim of deploying its versatile platform for Nigeria's most innovative gaming system. The deal, which is still under wraps, will see GT-NET partnering with the Nigerian firm to initially kick-start operations in the Eastern part of Nigeria in the next few months, before moving into the National scene. The Nigerian company has also promised to run 'the best online, real-time lotto the country has ever seen”
