Kiron Interactive and Vermantia announced today that they have launched their brand new virtual games TV channel with two operators in the African country of Uganda. Kings Bet and BetnSports are the first retailers in Uganda to integrate the service, which has already been integrated by Nigeria’s biggest operator Nairabet in April.
The solution is going live in 130 shops around the country initially, which will grow to around 500 by the end of the year. The virtual games includes commentary and players can place bets on horse racing, dog racing, football games, cycling as well as motor racing.
Steven Spartinos, co-CEO of Kiron Interactive, said: “The 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. 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.”
Simon Mpanga, BETnSPORT CEO, said: “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.”
