It’s being two years already since sports betting and casino company, Betway Ghana was launched in the country. As part of activities to mark their 2nd anniversary in the country, the company threw a party for its punters at their head office inside Adabraka.
Betway Ghana is one of the most used bookmakers in the country and it’s amazing to know they have been in the country for only two years so far. The Country manager for Betway Ghana, Kwabena Oppong Nkrumah who was speaking to media men at the anniversary party stated that it has been an interesting journey for them and Betway is spearheading several innovations in Ghana’s gaming industry.
“It’s been an interesting experience over the last few years and we brought something different to sports betting. Which was moving it from over the counter to online sports betting which is cashless and operating solely on mobile money.We have seen how others have also started migrating to that platform,” Mr Nkrumah said.
He added that in addition to their core operations, Betway was also heavily involved in several Corporate Social Responsibility programmes.
He mentioned their shirt sponsorship deals with four Ghanaian Premier League clubs; Ashgold, Aduana Stars, Liberty Professionals and Medeama SC as well as its Betway Talent Search programme which has landed several young footballers contracts with several clubs in the Ghanaian topflight.
“We have done a lot with our talent search, monthly donations, seminars for Ghana Premier League clubs and a lot of community engagements. We believe all sports betting firms must do more for the communities they operate in Ghana”.
