Game changer: Sirplay to outline DFS potential at Gaming Africa

Sirplay’s Joseph Oyekunle says that daily fantasy sports (DFS) could be a “game-changer for the industry” in Africa, as he prepares to speak at a new event launched by Clarion Gaming.

Oyekunle, an African representative for the Malta based sports betting software provider, will be speaking at 3pm on the first day of this week’s Gaming Africa in Johannesburg (24-25 October).

After illustrating the potential and attractiveness of DFS for the African gaming market, including benefits for both the players and the operators, he will describe a scenario where DFS and traditional sports betting can coexist on a betting platform designed to capture the millennial generation.

Oyekunle commented: “Daily fantasy sports are not so popular in Africa, yet they could be the game-changer for the industry. This kind of game merges sports and fantasy, attracting millennials with its mobile-optimization and gamification. They are risk-free profits for operators and guaranteed entertainment for players.”

Gaming Africa has been launched by Clarion Gaming to enable operators, regulators, and suppliers in the African gaming market to share knowledge and to debate key topics such as the impact of the continent’s growing economy on the gaming industry, developing payment technologies, integrity in sports betting and anti-money laundering initiatives.
