Global Betting and Gaming Consultants, a specialist gaming consultancy with more than 15 years’ experience, will shortly unveil two new reports investigating African sports betting and emerging trends in virtual betting.
The reports, which are due to be published this month, are based on groundbreaking research conducted as part of GBGC’s flagship Global Gambling Report, a market-leading study of more 250 gaming and betting markets which is now in its tenth edition.
He continued: “In our decade-long work on the Global Gambling Report, we’ve always tried to take a comprehensive long-term view on the industry as a whole – but we understand that operators are looking for the most intriguing opportunities in the here and now. That’s what these two new reports are all about.”
Meanwhile, GBGC’s report on Africa identifies cultural trends that are currently driving the continent’s emerging sports betting sector. Although the African betting market currently lags behind its European and Asian counterparts, there are several trends giving cause for growth: urbanisation, increasing stability and economic prosperity and a growing, young population.
The company has already completed projects in Africa, finding partners and researching potential opportunities in various jurisdictions.
“Our research has always gone hand-in-hand with our consultancy work,” added Bartlett. “Being properly informed is the best way to start, but looking at strategy, licensing, partnerships and individual business goals is the next step. These two reports on virtual betting and Africa will help spark ideas for new opportunities for betting firms looking to diversify and increase their revenues.”
