BetConstruct to launch new sportsbook with South Africa’s Gbets

25 October 2019

Online gaming solutions provider BetConstruct has secured approval to roll out a new sportsbook product with South African online operator Gbets.

The Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board agreed for BetConstruct to develop the new offering under its South Africa National Gambling Board national manufacturer licence.

Gbets, part of the Goldrush Group, will work with BetConstruct to implement the new sportsbook, with the aim of launching the service in November.

Features on the sportsbook will include BetConstruct’s Hoory voice activated betting assistant technology, as well as a range of live multi-play betting options.

“Towards the end of November this year, South African betting consumers can look forward to an innovative, world class betting experience with product features new to the South African sports betting landscape,” BetConstruct’s managing director of online gaming, Dhrupal Amin, said.

BetConstruct already runs certain online gambling services in South Africa, and is also active in Lesotho and Mozambique in the wider African region.

“In September this year, we relaunched our online business in Lesotho on the BetConstruct solution, which includes sports betting online casino and live casino products,” Amin said.

“The market response has exceeded our expectations, and we are seeing strong growth in new customer acquisition.”

The move comes after BetConstruct last week launched its new Spring Pro technology platform, with the aim of allowing operators to choose, adjust and customise products to suit their specifications.
