Africa is quickly becoming an iGaming hotspot, with the region generating about $2 billion a year. Morocco, Kenya, South Africa, and Nigeria are the regional leaders in gambling. However, these vibrant communities all currently use 95% foreign-created products. This seems to suggest that local developers are being ignored, with overseas companies delivering the better option. Shacks Evolution is about to change all this. The local company is set to soon rival the best competitors in the world.

The fact of the matter is that since local iGaming is currently ignored, there has been little room for growth. Shacks Evolution is aiming to change the game, step up, and deliver world-class online gambling entertainment. The company is made up of experienced professionals and eager young talent, all ready to push the local gaming industry to the next level.

The Story Behind the Birth of the Company

According to a spokesperson, the company came about during the peak of the world health crisis. Since sporting events were suspended at the time, the developers decided to create Next Evolution Soccer. The game is based on computer-controlled teams, and although not as advanced as other video games, paved the way for the company.

The spokesperson pointed out that a second game has also now been released. Called Busly, the innovative software is based around players riding a moving bus. As the bus travels a cash multiplier builds up a payout. As long as the player holds out before a bus stop, they will earn money. The game has so far been well received in Nigeria.

These first releases are only the beginning. A ton of new content is already planned for release before the end of March 2022. This includes Keno, Citadel, a penalty shootout simulator, as well as something based around a spinning wheel.

A Learning Experience

The technical lead at Shacks Evolution shared a few thoughts. The spokesperson explained that a great deal has been learned and that with this education it is now time to start creating. The technical lead went on to say that truly outstanding work is being achieved and that countries around the world will be delighted by the content still to come.

Imoh Abolagba, a game developer, shared some additional thoughts. Abolagba said that a full team of testers and designers has been hard at work, with the content being created that gamblers of all ages are sure to love.

The world will be waiting to see what Shacks Evolution has in store.
