Bart Esposito, the CEO of sportsbook technology and services supplier Sirplay says he has big plans for industry cooperation in Africa. Starting with Nigeria, he is working to build up a pan-African gaming confederation that will enable stakeholders to share critical information relating to markets across the continent.
Sirplay entered the African sportsbook market five years ago, and the group’s solutions are currently operating in Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Having already signed four new customers in 2017, Esposito says Sirplay is developing the confederation project through a network where member bookmakers can maintain their autonomy, but also share information about risks and dangerous players, creating an always current system for monitoring the local and global betting market.
Esposito will be publishing full details of his plan and vision for the new body in the near future.
