Shape Games, an award-winning igaming frontend provider, is proud to announce a new partnership with SunBet, a leading operator under the Sun International Group. This collaboration marks a transformative moment in South African online gaming.

SunBet, a division of renowned Sun International, is regulated for online betting in South Africa, with a strong focus on delivering a more personalized gaming experience. SunBet has chosen to partner with Shape Games to implement its native app frontend, enhancing the experience for their customers.

Shape Games, alongside Kambi, offering sportsbook services for online and retail, and Bede for PAM solutions, will collectively create a tailored user experience for the South African regulated market. SunBet will leverage Shape Games’ award-winning platform, which includes sportsbook and casino frontends, to deliver this enriched gaming experience.

Shape Games, acquired by Kambi a year ago, has successfully onboarded clients from Kambi, including SunBet. The Operator’s long-standing relationship with Kambi since November 2017, combined with their newfound collaboration with Shape Games, serves as undeniable proof of the synergy between these two industry leaders. This collaboration empowers them to deliver a more diverse and competitive product to the market, further solidifying their position in the industry. .
