For the second time this month, Dragonfish, the business-to-business
division of leading UK online gambling powerhouse, 888 Holdings Plc, has signed
a substantial deal that will see it further extend its global reach, this time
to South Africa after signing a lucrative deal with Tsogo Sun Gaming.

A few weeks ago Dragonfish signed a deal with Harrah’s Entertainment Inc, the
largest land casino group in the United States, to provide it with cutting edge
online gambling facilities, and now the gaming firm has forged a similar deal
with Tsogo Sun Gaming, one of South Africa’s largest land casino operators.

The joint venture will see Tsogo Sun Gaming become one of the first land casino
groups in South Africa to openly acknowledge and embrace the growth and
popularity of online gambling in the country. Although online gambling is not
yet legal in South Africa, the government has plans to legalize and regulate it.

Said Tsogo Sun Group CFO, Marcel von Aulock, ‘Tsogo is a dynamic and innovative
leader of gaming in South Africa so our move into online gaming is a natural
progression. Dragonfish has a proven pedigree in online gaming technology
delivery and this partnership will provide an ideal platform to expand our
offering.’

While the precise terms of the agreement between the two companies is obviously
confidential, it is expected that Dragonfish will kick off the venture by
launching an online sportsbook for Tsogo Sun Gaming, before going on to develop
and launch state-of-the-art online casino, online poker room and online bingo
sites.

Also happy with the new deal is Dragonfish MD, Gabi Campos, ‘Our technology
infrastructure provides an excellent platform for partnerships with land-based
casinos. Tsogo’s casinos provide a world-class, personalized gaming experience,
and by partnering with us we can give them the expertise and cutting-edge online
gaming solutions to convert their strong brand into a successful position in the
online gaming world.’

Amongst other properties, Tsogo Sun Gaming owns and operates Montecasino in
Johannesburg, Suncoast Casino in Durban, Emnotweni Casino in Nelspruit,
Hemingways Casino in East London and The Ridge in Witbank.
