At the beginning of the month, South Africa's Springbok Group made a move, acquiring the also South Africa-leaning Thunderbolt Casino. The acquisition serves to further solidify the foothold the organization already has in the South African online gaming market. The two casinos offer the same sort of games, from the same maker essentially: Realtime Gaming's new Bubble Bubble is available at both sites, together with jackpot-based games like the Aztec's Millions.
According to Springbok's Daniel van Wyk, the union of the two brands is a match made in heaven as far as the South African online gambling scene is concerned: they both offer the same games and customer service is a top priority for both operations. How will then South African players choose one operation over the other - one may wonder - and were there really any other reasons behind the acquisition, besides the market-share grab?
Apparently, although they're quite similar in every other respect, the two casinos feature different bonus deals and thus players will simply have more options in regards to these deals, as well as more opportunities to pick up free spins.
Thunderbolt's players can now grab a 50% match bonus on their deposits no fewer than 10 times a month, using a special bonus code. In addition to that, on Thursdays, a massive match bonus of 150% awaits them on the first deposit of the day, on which the maximum of R2500. Thunderbolt Casino's comp-point scheme is the equivalent of a 25% cashback deal, and that's without accounting for any of the above mentioned bonuses.
By all accounts, Thunderbolt Casino is now one of the top South African online gambling destinations.
According to a Thunderbolt Casino representative, the world-wide slowdown in gambling/online gambling has not affected the operation, in fact, the site gets busier every day.
