| By Aaron Noy

Evolution Services South Africa, the joint project set up by Evolution Gaming and its subsidiary Ezugi, has announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with Turfsport, the largest supplier of wagering software to bookmakers in South Africa, and a leading supplier to bookmakers in other countries in Africa.

The agreement encompasses omnichannel wagering and live dealer solutions for both the retail and online markets. According to Evolution Services SA “world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting solutions too” will be delivered.

Final integration of the new service is currently being completed for Turfsport’s new fully hosted online platform and will be followed by a feed integration into the Turfsport fully hosted retail platform.

Turfsport’s online operators will have the choice of both Ezugi and Evolution live dealer games. This provides Turfsport operators with access to proven and hugely popular Evolution Live Dealer games and game show titles such as Mega Ball, Crazy Time and Lightning Roulette, as well as classics such as Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat.

Commenting on the announcement, Velasen Naidoo, managing director of Turfsport, said: “With our 35-plus year history in the African igaming industry we have a great deal of experience in turning new and existing operators into successful market leaders. We are confident that the rich mix of Live Dealer games and retail betting games from Ezugi and Evolution will be a very significant and exciting attraction for operators and players alike.”

Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA, said: “We are enormously excited by the potential of the Turfsport agreement. Our live dealer solutions and retail games portfolio is extremely complementary to Turfsport’s existing wagering software for sports, horse racing, numbers and more.”

Kfir Kugler, CEO and founder of Ezugi, added: “Evolution Services SA is committed to delivering a world-leading live gaming solution to operators in South Africa and the wider African continent. On top of fixed odds retail games from Ezugi, we can now offer famous Evolution Live Dealer games such as Dream Catcher – and not just through online live casino on desktop, tablet and smartphone, but also soon on our retail platform.”
