888Africa Expands Reach with Acquisition of BetLion

In a bold move to reshape the landscape of online betting in Africa, 888Africa, a dynamic joint-venture under the umbrella of 888Holdings, has recently made a strategic acquisition by welcoming renowned online bookmaker BetLion into its fold. The acquisition marks a significant stride towards establishing unique and unparalleled gaming and betting encounters for players across the African continent.

Hailing from the bustling Kenyan capital of Nairobi, BetLion has garnered attention with its licensed operations in Kenya and Zambia since its inception, expanding its footprint even further with a recent foray into the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This strategic maneuver aligns seamlessly with 888Africa’s vision, as the joint venture led by the accomplished former The Stars Group (TSG) CMO, Christopher Coyne, as CEO, is steadfastly committed to pioneering new horizons in the African betting market.

With its headquarters situated in the vibrant city of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, 888Africa boasts a robust portfolio of local gambling licenses. This impressive lineup includes licenses in key African markets such as Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Zambia.
