Sergey Harutyunyan

Industry games supplier BetConstruct continues to expand its African market footprint, by confirming that it has secured a South Africa National Gambling Board, ‘Manufacturer Licence’.

The licence approval sees BetConstruct granted the right to service sports betting solutions for regulated South African market stakeholders.

“We have achieved another strategic victory by being granted a Manufacturer Licence in South Africa. This will allow BetConstruct to roll out its market leading Sportsbook to local regulated South African operators. We are excited to have reached this significant milestone after a long regulatory process and look forward to developing in the region further in the coming months,” commented Sergey Harutyunyan, BetConstruct COO.

As an industry technology supplier, BetConstrut governance has emphasised growth in developing markets. In August 2016, the company secured its first African market supplier contract with online betting firm Hollywoodbets.com

“Operators can now offer up to 30.000 live matches per month for 140+ sports via our market-leading solution. Additionally, BetConstruct will offer SMS betting and a localized light mobile version of its sportsbook,”

Last October, BetConstruct announced that founder and current Executive Chairman Vigen Badalyan would retake the position of Group CEO, following the departure of  Vahe Baloulian as company leader.
