Kings Bet and BETnSport among East Africa’s first operators to benefit from Betting on Virtual Sports.

Kiron Interactive and Vermantia have launched Virtual Games TV with Kings Bet and BETnSport, in Uganda.

The roll-out, with betting shop operators Kings Bet and BETnSPORT, follows a similar deal earlier this month to provide the virtual service to Nairabet, Nigeria’s leading retailer.

The premium service will showcase their market-leading portfolio, which now includes among other sports horses, dogs, football, trotting, motor-racing and cycling. Number games – including Keno – will follow later this year. All games currently feature human commentary.

The service will be launched in 130 shops in the initial phase, rising to 500 by the end of 2015.

Kings Bet, Uganda’s largest bookmaker, operates eight separate retail betting brands in the country.

Steven Spartinos, co-CEO of Kiron Interactive, said: “The Africa Channel is a cost-effective and scalable solution that can be beamed in to any corner of Africa, where virtual games have proven to be very popular.

“It is has launched very successfully in Nigeria and I’m sure the same will be the case in Uganda. Kings Bet and BETnSPORT now have a significant advantage in a very competitive market.”

Simon Mpanga, BETnSPORT CEO, said: “We’re very excited to launch this service with Kiron and Vermantia. It allows us to offer our customers this exciting content, no matter where the shop is located.”
