Pragmatic Play has become well-known over recent years as a leading content provider for online casinos and sports betting sites. Now, they’ve partnered with the successful brand Hollywoodbets. Together, they’re set to take on the booming South African betting industry.

The deal between the companies involves Pragmatic Play supplying its full portfolio of slot games. This includes popular titles such as the multi-award winning, Wolf Gold, as well as Sweet Bonanza, John Hunter, Big Bass Bonanza, and their new release, Barn Festival. The company will also be providing its complete collection of instant-win scratch card games.

Hollywoodbets, an established and experienced operator in South Africa, has been at the forefront of the market for many years. It’s a comprehensive selection of services and games including a wide variety of slots. They also provide lucky number games, live dealer games, as well as virtual sports betting.

Optimism All-round

Together, the companies have much greater potential and ability. They can gain a solid foothold in the competitive South African betting industry and market.

In a recent statement, Yozzi Barzely, Pragmatic Play’s Chief Business Development Officer, expressed his great optimism for the business venture. He believes that South Africa, one of Africa’s biggest and most well-established iGaming hubs, holds a huge opportunity. This goes for both content suppliers and operators. He is delighted with the new partnership with Hollywoodbets and looks forward to mutual success.

Hollywoodbets Betting Operations Manager, Dermot O’Connell, has likewise released a statement. He has praised Pragmatic Play’s exceptional quality and variety of content. He feels that they are the perfect complement to Hollywoodbets’ existing array of games and services. Hollywoodbets existing content is provided via Betting Entertainment Technologies.

As a top developer and content provider, Pragmatic Play has become known for its high release rate. The company produces an average of six new slots games every month. Their wide range of other games, from live dealer to Bingo, are all available through a useful single API. This is a special developer interface that allows third parties and different businesses to share access to digital products. 

With their resources pooled together, the two companies have a good chance of jumping to the forefront of the South African market in 2022. In the coming years, if all goes well, they will likely be at the very top of the market leaders.
