Any serious player will feel good when their favorite mobile casino announces refreshing additions from top game developers. Well, that's what South African mobile casino players at Supabets will experience. In July 2022, NetEnt and Red Tiger announced that Supabets slots players will now enjoy exciting titles from these two developers. Below is what you need to know about the deal.
Launched in 2008, Supabets is a hugely successful mobile casino and sportsbook in the South African market. Besides South Africa, the gaming site also has a massive presence in Mozambique, Tanzania, and Ghana. Therefore, it's only a matter of when Supabets will ink similar deals in these countries.
Following the agreement, Supabets became the first mobile casino in South Africa with a slots collection. That's thanks to the close relationship with Mpumalanga Economic Regulator (MER), the market regulator. Supabets will offer players 175 slot titles from Red Tiger Gaming and NetEnt. Remember that NetEnt alone has 200+ entertaining slot machines, including award-winning titles like Gonzo's Quest and Starburst.
It's also worth noting that Supabets already has an active deal with Evolution Gaming to supply its live casino games. NetEnt and Red Tiger, Nolimit City, Ezugi, and Big Time Gaming are part of the expansive Evolution AB. So, it won't be surprising if the other slot machine developers launch in South Africa.
Being the first mobile casino to supply slot machines in South Africa legally is no mean feat. As such, Marc Palxton-Harisson, Intelligent Gaming's Managing Director, couldn't hide his excitement. Here's what he said:
"We are ecstatic to finally have MER approval for the launch of the NetEnt and Red Tiger world-class slots offering. We are confident they will do very well with Supabets, and we look forward to adding the portfolio to our remaining SA clients."
On their part, Evolution Services SA Chief Executive Officer, Dean Finder, had this to say:
"We are delighted that we have the opportunity to expand our partnership with Supabets and that they will now have access to our portfolio of NetEnt and Red Tiger slot games. We hope their players will enjoy the diversity of the portfolio, as there truly is something available for everyone to enjoy."
In other news that will excite Supabets slot machine players, NetEnt announced a brand-new addition in May, Funk Master. This unique game brings all the disco thrill and groove of the 1970s right to your favorite mobile casino. The slot features amazing disco graphics that will teleport players to the disco floor and get their feet tapping. The fun happens on a massive 8 x 8 grid, where the disco balls fall into position, thanks to the Avalanche mechanic.
The main highlights of this slot machine are the Dancing Wilds. Instead of disappearing, these symbols boogie into vacant positions whenever they are part of a winning combo. Then, the Avalanche feature activates, as the Dancing Wilds replace all standard symbols bar the multipliers. If this happens, they pay the highest winning combo in a cluster.
As expected, Funk Master also has the all-important Free Spins mechanic. Here, the game's play area can increase from 8 x 8 to 12 x 8. In return, players can win some groovy prizes.
According to James Jones, Evolution's Head of Business Development, Funk Master is a fantastic slot theme! The official said that the game resurrects the 70s dance fever with a lot of vengeance. Mr. Jones continued that players would love the Dancing Wilds alongside the flashing disco balls. You should try this foot-tapping experience.
