Cola Group to invest millions to accelerate Cola.bet expansion strategy

13 October 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Cola Group, a world-class games and entertainment specialist, is expanding the iGaming arm of its company, Cola.bet, with a $14.5 million investment.

This substantial investment follows on the back of Cola.bet securing a fourth African gambling license in the continent’s second largest gambling market, Nigeria. This new addition adds to Cola.bet’s current stable of highly successful African operations; Zambia (cola.com.zm), Kenya (cola.ke) and Ethiopia (cola.et).

This latest sports betting license was granted by the Lagos State Lotteries Board to a locally incorporated, Cola.bet subsidiary company, Cola Games Limited. The Nigerian market is similar to Ethiopia’s in that both are very retail centric rather than internet based. It was a strategic move for Cola.bet to leverage its blueprint and successes in Ethiopia to successfully expand into Nigeria.

The betting operator delivers a modern, mobile-first proprietary platform tailored for both established and fast-developing markets. The Cola.bet platform is easily adjustable, customisable and provides seamless integrations. All local payment methods are also integrated onto the platform where partners can find a vast selection of sports events, esports and casino games. To further support Cola Group’s partners there is a complete consulting service, including a licensing brokerage, that provides access to localized knowledge and best practice in each operating region.

As Cola.bet continues to expand its sports betting and iGaming offering, responsible gaming remains a core focus. Cola.bet excels at providing resources to enable customers to enjoy gaming responsibly. Aside from aforementioned licenses, Cola.bet also holds a Curaçao gambling license and is in the process of obtaining licenses in the regulated markets of Africa, LATAM and Europe. This will facilitate the expansion plans of the company.

Dinu Bors, Cola.bet’s COO said: “Cola.bet delivers an exceptional customer-first experience and the launch augments our global ambitions within the iGaming space. The platform is highly customizable and grants B2B partners instant access to curated content for a plethora of markets. We’ll be rolling-out several innovative features over the coming months, we’re only just getting started.”

Dana Varnytska, Cola.bet’s CMO followed: “Our strategy is built on a localized program which has been developed through thorough research into market nuances and player preference. Players will benefit from bespoke bonus promotions and extremely competitive odds on the most popular events”.
