“Thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in this market by our Ezugi subsidiary, we are entering a really exciting new vertical in this region.”

Carlesund continued with the following. “Our world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting solutions too, will be available not only on desktop, tablet and smartphone but also in retail betting shops.”

Meanwhile, Kfir KuglerEguzi Founder & Chief Executive – also had some words to share.
