Online gambling operator Premier Bet is becoming the official betting partner of Italian Serie A football club AC Milan for the region of Africa. The start of the partnership will be marked by a new multi-media and multi-market advertising campaign, which will coincide with the beginning of the new season.

Betting Companies Unable to Set Up Online Platforms in Rwanda
Back in May, betting operators present in the Republic of Rwanda, including Premier Bet, signaled about unexplained obstacles related to their efforts to launch virtual platforms while physical venues are closed.
A number of betting operators said that the sector’s regulator, the Ministry of Trade and Industry, failed to provide them with the needed support to set up online gaming activities. Some of the challenges involved in the transitioning to virtual platforms include inadequate policies, lack of consultative forums, and gaps in the framework governing the sector, the operators say.
