South Africa’s online gaming industry continues to post growth

Even though mobile gaming uptake has been slow in the market, other technologies have pervaded the gaming sector, making for a strong push among businesses and consumers.

Once again, though, the growth has been attributed to the mobile niche, which is gaining more momentum.

Gaming on the go features both games developed as dedicated apps, but also the growth of the iGaming industry or online casinos.

South African players have found these games to be of particular value to them thanks to their play-to-earn model that enables players to stake some of their money for a chance to win more out of their participation in the games. 

Meanwhile, Statista predicts that the video game market in South Africa will expand to $5.4billion by 2023.

Blockchain technology has also been very well-represented in Africa already. Quanta has appointed a number of local executives to help with the consolidation of the company on the continent.

Meanwhile, Kamari CEO Chris Cleverly has already vowed his intention to make blockchain a more permanent part of Africa’s technological landscape.

Not least, there are crypto and blockchain casinos to consider, which have been a huge success by and by., 1xBit and even CasinoFair are some of the best brands that not only African players can try today. They are quick, offer great bonuses and a variety of gaming products to explore.
