Thursday October 3,2013 : S.A. MANUFACTURING LICENSE FOR BET TECH GAMING
Sports betting service also gets a boost with the arrival of former Sportingbet trader Mike Shea.
BetTech Gaming has broadened its South African partnership opportunities following the award of a National Manufacturers License in South Africa, and the addition to its expert staff of former Sportingbet trader Mike Shea.
A company spokesman said that being granted a National Manufacturers Licence significantly broadens opportunities for domestic partnerships in the region because BetTech can now work with operators from across South Africa, regardless of which gambling board they are regulated by.
Previously the company was limited to working with clients from the Western Cape Province, where it is headquartered in Cape Town, or those located outside of South African borders.
CEO Mark Bosman said Thursday:
“Now we are really taking things to the next level. The National Manufacturers Licence opens many doors domestically for brands looking to launch or outsource a sportsbook, while the appointment of Mike, who brings with him a wealth of knowledge and skills, underlines our commitment to quality.”
Shea was previously horse racing trading supervisor at Sportingbet and held roles at Hollywood Sports Book and World Betting Exchange. The South African will play a vital role in the development of the company’s flagship product, BetTech Sports, and devise and oversee trading strategies for clients of the recently-released Fully Managed Solution.
In compliance with National Gambling Board guidelines, BetTech offers local and international pre-match and live sports and horse racing betting markets to the South African market.
Regulation permitting, clients operating outside South Africa can offer players a wider variety of BetTech products, thanks to integrations with international third parties. This includes virtual wagering alongside a selection of web and mobile casino and interactive games.
