Online gambling software developer SoftSwiss is to expand into the African market for the first time after it secured a new licence in Nigeria.
The permit will allow SoftSwiss to work with licensed operators in Nigeria and deploy its igaming software in Africa’s most populous country.
SoftSwiss said the new licence forms part of its ongoing strategy to focus on growth in regulated markets around the world.
“Entering the Nigerian market marks an exceptional turning point for SoftSwiss, as we’re expanding our global presence to a brand new continent,” the supplier’s founder Ivan Montik said.
“Nigeria is considered one of the most fast-paced igaming markets in terms of growth and we cannot wait to begin providing our services there.
“Nigeria is a great achievement for us and we’re planning on moving even further into other regulated markets.”
The licence comes after SoftSwiss last week announced the launch of Affilka, a new affiliate marketing platform designed for sportsbooks.
