Producers of Virtual Games TV, Vermantia and Kiron Interactive, have launched their joint virtual games service with two operators in Uganda.
Virtual Games TV is a satellite channel dedicated to virtual games, showcasing sports including horses, dogs, football, motor-racing and cycling, and soon additional sports such as keno.
The virtual solution will be launched in 130 shops during the initial phase, rising to 500 by the end of the year.
The roll-out, with betting shop operators Kings Bet and BETnSPORT, follows a similar deal earlier this month to provide the virtual service to Nairabet, becoming the first retail bookmakers in the country to launch the service.
“The Africa Channel is a cost-effective and scalable solution that can be beamed in to any corner of Africa, where virtual games have proven to be very popular,” said Kiron Interactive CEO Steven Spartinos. “It is has launched very successfully in Nigeria and I’m sure the same will be the case in Uganda. Kings Bet and BETnSPORT now have a significant advantage in a very competitive market.”
“We’re very excited to launch this service with Kiron and Vermantia. It allows us to offer our customers this exciting content, no matter where the shop is located,” added BETnSPORT CEO Simon Mpanga.
