London-based platform provider, FSB Technology partners with Mkekabet, a sports betting operator based in Tanzania.
It is the first African deal of the platform provider. Due to the fact that FSB Technology partners with Mkekabet in Africa, FSB has designed a unique site for the sports betting operator that is now available in both English and Swahili.
The new platform has been integrated into Oxygen8’s mobile payment gateway with the use of both M-pesa and Tigo mobile banking services.
Mkekabet’s customers will now be able to choose from a wide range of markets on sports such as football, cricket, tennis, volleyball and handball.
Both pre-match and in-play are being traded by FSB and the company also plans to introduce the jackpot based in correct football scores that will be available in various jurisdictions.
Richard Thorp, the supplier’s business development director noted that he was happy to see the site live after meeting numerous challenging requirements such as the need to accept wagers through SMS.
Richard Thorp, the supplier’s business development director:
“We’re very pleased to have launched Mkekabet and are very confident it will be very beneficial to its operator in Tanzania and beyond. We were always confident that we could tailor our offering to wide range of territories, but answering language, local payment provision, and scalability questions has been very rewarding.”
Mkekabet managing director, Mark Robertson:
“We’ve been very impressed with FSB’s ability to customise their platform for our local payment and regulatory requirements. Our site is now the best looking and best performing ones around and we have a distinct advantage over our competitors.”
Mkekabet’s new site is expected to be especially popular with Tanzania’s football fans and punters as Europe’s domestic football leagues begin again next month. The sports betting operator has already witnessed a lot of of traffic during Euro 2016.
