Nigeria V Africa : Projections & the future
“……….South Africa even with the most mature market, it doesn’t mean that it is going to outgrow
Nigeria and Kenya. In fact, PWC gas tipped south Africa as the slowest growing of the 3 markets. Taken
all together the 3 regions are expected to generate as much as $2.9 billion by 2017 representing a
significant spike interest from gamblers for all gambling options available in the 3 countries” calvinayre.com
“For the forecast period as a whole, gross gambling revenues will expand at a projected 16.3%
compound annual rate to $66 million in 2017”.
