    Default African Players - Any Programs want them ?

    Is there any Sports / Casino program out there that wants players from Africa - and can demonstrate previous ability to convert them?

    Having made the site mobile friendly we appear to be attracting a lot of keen 18-25yo African readers from the likes of Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda etc. It's around 18% of our traffic, which is approximately 40,000 -50,000 sessions a month.

    There may be some value in there as about 10% of this traffic is South African.

    They visitors seem football mad (real football not US version) and seem to be looking for match picks and online bookmakers to bet at. 95-98% of the activity is via mobile phone and opera-mini browser (which saves bandwidth on mobile plans).

    This segment has popped up in the last 3-6 months (since mobil-geddon) and is growing, so I'm looking for ways to monetise them.

    The visitors do not appear to be particularly sophisticated betters based on facebook / twitter interaction, wanting "sure bets", "safe bets", or strings of recommendations for 10 team accumulators, and I doubt that there is a lot of ready money or credit cards / e-cash available to them.

    Is there is a good program out there that wants this traffic?
    Then PM me - as I have a lot of African visitors looking for a destination that can take them and convert them.

    I get some traffic from Africa also on a few betting sites, looking at offer pages. Obvious there's some market out there to be catered for.

    Thanks for the adverts MoonlightCat


    I must admit that they underline the attitude that I have seen in players from this region.
    I'm not sure that I want to dabble in this group - problem gambling could be a major issue with ads like this.

    I don't think I've seen a 2-minute ad before.

    All three companies are Nigerian, aren't they? Do Kenyans bet there?

    After nearly a year of looking - no-one seems interested in this traffic.
    It is large volume - but it is also low value per player.

    If you get Africans to sign up i doubt you will get them to deposit. We have been to Nigeria to study the situation and consider licensing. Our observations (as bookmakers) was you need a street presence (shops) to attract people online. People want cash and quick, and it's just like you expect from a real ''leisure'' players market.

    The reason well known bookmakers don't apply for licenses is corruption and uncertainty. An example of that is 150K for the license (open as many shops as you want) and 150K for Bribes. That's probably why several of the better known companies are operated by people from Turkey. I don't mean anything negative with that, just from a cultural aspect North Europeans, Australasians and North Americans would struggle.

    It's indeed very hard to convert this traffic because they are more used to go to a shop and pay via cash directly to their phone bill and the payment processing is done using their phone (by the way they also use it to pay all their bills) in most of the african countries they are using payments by phone.
    Another issue is that I still haven't found a decent african brand affiliate program, I found some licensed brands but most of them dont have AP which makes it even harder.

    Unfortunately the African mobile boom does NOT include many South African players.
    Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda mostly.

    African traffic do not convert (except maybe for SAF), because of payment issues. Many credit cards holders in African countries cannot purchase international goods or services.

    Can African people use online wallets such as Skrill and Neteller?

    On some african countries they are allowed such as Tanzaniya, Kenya but Skrill & Neteller are blocking some countries from using the wallet
    https://www.neteller.com/en/policies...iced-countries Such as Uganda, Sudan...

    In any case these are currently far from being popular on these countries to my opinion.
