Investments
VukanI: 100%
Vukani Gaming Corporation Proprietary Limited (“Vukani”) is
a group of companies mainly engaged in offering limited
payout machine (“LPM”) gaming services. To date, the most
significant business within Vukani is that of VSlots, which
manages approximately 4 500 LPMs at third-party sites
throughout South Africa.
The LPM industry offers attractive investment prospects:
There are significant barriers to competitor entry:
stringent requirements and time delays in obtaining
licences; and
significant capital requirements to purchase and roll out
LPMs.
A large, dispersed number of site owners minimises concen-
tration risk.
A limited number of licences is available for each province.
