Past Sports Betting Events
Sports betting East Africa 10 - 11 April 2018
Everyone who attended the 4th Annual Sports Betting East Africa Summit were treated to a world-renowned experience. Over 250 African and International Delegates were part of the discussions surrounding the latest regulations, business opportunities and technology in East Africa.
Some of the legislative and regulatory discussions become quite heated when operators and regulators discussed implementation of Uganda’s new software monitoring and hardware legislations. Operators called for regulators to be lenient in the next few months to allow operators, software and technology providers time to transition.
When East Africa’s leading regulatory boards met on stage to discuss the future of regulation in East Africa, there was a general consensus that the summit was a phenomenal opportunity to learn from each other and open the channels of communication between Uganda, Mauritius, Malawi, and Mozambique.
The discussion surrounding the 2018 FIFA World Cup took a surprising turn when operators agreed that business during that time would be tough. The main take away from that discussion is that Kenyans and Ugandans are only supportive of their national teams if they qualify for the World Cup. Generally, the East African punter is more supportive of the English Premier League than anything else.
The Summit also provided local East African companies the opportunity to showcase their innovations to the world of iGaming at the Sports Betting East Africa Summit Business Startup Competition. Chekiodds, Edadcoinbox and Kola Studios were all given 10 minutes to pitch their ideas to noteworthy businessmen in the iGaming sector such as Jeff Halloran (Sahara Games), Salvation Alibor (Syscomptech) and Nelson Mugisha Mulera (Airtel Uganda).
