We’re proud to cover the mobile casino industry around the world and our regions section is one of the most popular parts of the site here at MobileCasino.net, with Africa being one of the most popular of all. Within Africa, one of the genuine gaming hotbeds is Nigeria and things look set to be taken to a whole new level with the announcement of a new partnership between Kuluya, one of the country’s leading online and mobile gaming companies, and international mobile giant Nokia.
Kuluya is the name behind some of the most popular casino game titles in Nigeria, with more than sixty titles to their name and plenty more on the way, including some arcade favourites. Mobiles remain the method of choice for internet access in the country, with more Nigerians accessing the internet daily through their mobile device than through actual computers, due in no small part to the cost of hardware. Such costs also apply to this new deal as the likes of iPhones and Samsung Android devices are cost prohibitive for many Nigerians. The partnership tackles this by seeing both companies working together to bring a great range of mobile casino games to Nokia’s Asha and Lumia brands which are still advanced phones in their own right but far more affordable than their Apple and Samsung counterparts.
Kuluya CEO Kunle Ogungbamila was suitably delighted with the new deal, commenting: “We know that gaming will explode across the continent of Africa, just as it has in the West, usurping other forms of entertainment to become a multi-billion dollar generating industry. We also know that mobile is the prominent platform for content distribution in Africa, be it movies, news, music and, in this instance, gaming, so we see this partnership with Nokia as the beginning of an exciting and mutually beneficial content/platform relationship of the future.”
Emmanuel Oluwatosin, Nokia’s West Africa Partner Manager, also commented, saying: “Africa is a continent with great potential across all sectors. We are excited at the fact that the younger generation is looking inwards and taking advantage of the opportunities that are in abundance. Kuluya is leading the way in this regard and we are happy to work with them in providing great games for our consumers.”
