GiG Sets Sights on African Expansion
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has announced a new agreement with the Angolan operator Full Games SA. The deal will see GiG provide the operator with its Sportsbook and Player Account Management (PAM) services in the Angolan market, which has just become regulated.
It is the first agreement to bring together products from both GiG and Sportnco Gaming SAS after GiG completed the acquisition of Sportnco last year. It is also a significant milestone for GiG as it enters a new market, its first entry into the regulated African industry.
Full Gaming SA is a joint venture between the local company GRUPO CHAMAVO and GRUPO VALISA, which is one of the largest retail gaming groups in Spain. The entity is now hoping to become one of the largest presences in the Angolan market.
GiG will be supporting Full Games SA with its suite of turnkey managed services. This will allow the operator to provide fast and efficient services to the market. GiG also hopes that now it has established a presence in Africa, it will be able to expand in the region over the coming years as more countries open their markets.
I am exceptionally happy to have partnered with Full Games SA. The opportunity to implement our sportsbook and PAM in Angola, a fresh and dynamic market, where we see tremendous potential, is a true testament to the Sportnco reputation and the strength of the partnership and offering we now have in combining Sportnco and GiG’s technology, people and service offering. I am extremely proud that we are one of the early movers and one of the first to secure a partnership there. We are looking forward to working with and building a long-term relationship with Full Game SA.
Francisco Simão Júnior, the Chairman of Full Games SA, added, “We are really excited to launch our betting and gaming offer soon in Angola. We think that Sportnco and GIG is the perfect fit to leverage our gaming license and offer a very attractive gaming solution to all punters from Angola.”
