Playgon Games Incorporated is a technology business which focuses on the development and licensing of digital content for the iGaming market. The company announced in December 2020 that it was entering the US$2.9 billion South African gaming industry after completing a software and licensing distribution agreement with Intelligent Gaming Limited. The latter is a fully licensed creator of game products in South Africa.
The gaming market in South Africa is a robust one, with a gross gaming revenue of almost R35 billion expected in 2020 which is predicted to expand by a compound interest rate of 6% annually. Casino games total over 70% of gaming revenue, with one in every 10 South Africans enjoying these regularly.

IGL is a first-rate supplier of management systems for retail gaming and they will be distributing Playgon’s proprietary Vegas Lounge® suite of live dealer games for mobile users. These titles have all been developed for beginners and seasoned players alike and provide fast functionality along with a range of in-game options. They have all been optimised for one-handed gameplay in portrait mode.
Playgon Chief Executive Officer Darcy Krogh stated that the African gaming market presents a wonderful opportunity for his business’ product. He added that he’s thrilled to be partnering with one of South Africa’s foremost iGaming aggregators in IGL and revealed that he’s very excited about developing the products together in the expanding market going forward.
Intelligent Gaming CEO Marc Plaxton-Harrison was equally delighted about the partnership, commenting that his team is always on the lookout for fresh content to deliver to their South African customers. He described the Vegas Lounge® product as one obviously designed with players’ needs at the forefront and stated that he is sure that consumers are going to love it.
