West Africa iGaming Looks Ready for Prime Time with Sports Betting West Africa Summit 2017

July looks like the moment to harness the iGaming benefits Africa has to offer.

There is no more intriguing area for iGaming than Africa, a struggling region where any low overhead business represents an excellent way to stimulate foreign investment by offering proportionately higher iGaming benefits to the region and market entrants alike.

Intrigue in Lagos

That fact makes this time of year equally intriguing, as Sports Betting West Africa Summit 2017 moves into proximity on the iGaming calendrical equator: on July 17th, Africa’s biggest iGaming event comes to Lagos courtesy of Eventus International.

The Event

Sports Betting West Africa 2017 is a self-styled one stop West African social hub for networking, sales, and healthy debate forums.

Current Climate

With the gaming industry as robust and fast-paced as ever, Sports Betting West Africa will be focused on regional opportunities offered by the evolving online environment in Africa within an improved infrastructure that is driven by the African content’s ardent love for sports.

Local Introduction

The unique nature of the Western African iGaming market requires localized strategies to successfully branch out and maximise profits, with significant opportunities currently identified for example as led by increased legislation and online payment advancements in Nigeria, Ghana, and other leading West African nations.

Attendees to Network With

Attendees to Sports Betting West Africa Summit 2017 are set to include software providers, operators, regulators, and bookmakers who will be gathering to offer their expertise and recommendations for succeeding in the African market.

The Venue

The venue is of the quality to reflect the prestige of the event. The 5-star Federal Palace Hotel and Casino is conveniently located in the heart of the thriving commercial district of Lagos’ Victoria Island commercial district.

Opulent Leisure Class

The lavish accommodations are complemented by The Federal Palace Casino, where guests are treated to an informal networking atmosphere where they can unwind from the day’s activities, or wind up for the night’s festivities, by taking a spin on the wheel of fortune while bonding with new clients, or play one’s favourite game at any of the ten gaming tables.

Top Cuisine

All hosts and deal makers can look good by taking their clients to one of Federal Palace’s many exquisite Victoria Island Restaurants.  Culinary delights to be discovered amongst the elegant offerings include a full range of traditional as well as new Nigerian culinary delights at the Explorers Restaurant, while those mainlanders in the mood for a taste of home can enjoy the equally expansive European offerings at Explorers. 

Informal Elegance

Those seeking a more casual ambience can enjoy a gourmet cocktail before a light but sumptuous mouth-watering lunch or dinner at the Ancestors Spirits and Wine Bar.

The Club

And after dining and business hours conclude, you are warmly invited to kick back at the Sports Betting Africa Summit 2017 pool club in the exclusive Federal Palace Pool Deck.

Recreational Business

Don’t forget about daytime leisure for all the top deal-makers out there. The Federal Palace Pool Club provides exclusive day-time leisure venues for deal making and client bonding as well. 

Maximum Amenities

The full amenities of the Pool Club include two tennis courts; an outdoor exercise circuit; a games room; an 18-hole adventure golf course; and a scenic jogging track.  There is no shortage of high end refreshment on the recreational grounds either, with the Pool Deck Restaurant and Food and Beverage Kiosk offering both a basic menu as well as takeaways in season until 21h00 each and every day.


The stunning opulent grounds of the Federal Palace Hotel and Casino appear the perfect venue for introducing the West African gaming region to the world, and making West Africa a hospitable place for market entry that buys into the social support and increased revenues that the region needs perhaps moreso than anywhere else in the world.
