Nations In Africa Embracing Online Sports Betting

African nations have seen the power of the internet and how economies can benefit from the new connectedness of globalization. Countries such as Nigeria and Uganda have embraced technology and are making use of the internet to bet on sports and other events.

Ugandans last year became aware of sports betting recently with an interest that went beyond even Facebook as a place to go on the web., and placed third only behind Zynga as those game related sites visited by the Ugandan punter. There is also Ghana, where SafariBet has been operational for eight months but already ranks as the country’s 23rd most popular website.

In Nigeria, retail sports betting operator Bet On Sports Limited launched its products online with the Bet2Win site. Dolan Beuthin Chief Executive Officer of the firm commented that the online debut was “another exciting landmark” for the company. Beuthin said it was necessary to create the domain to satisfy his “on the go” customers’ and the demands for faster methods of betting than having to make ones way to the shops.
