Usain Bolt was the leading athlete of the past decade, the face of track and field sports and one of the most endorsed sportsmen on the planet. It comes as no surprise that even 2 and a half years after his retirement, sponsors are still interested in him. iGaming couldn’t be an exception: Ganapati, the Japanese games provider, created a slot devoted to the fastest man on the planet.
Bolt himself honored ICE London 2020 with his presence which surprised the participants. The Jamaican even performed its own DJ set! Ganapati and Bolt are working closely for the launch of his very own slot which will be released in the summer. The goal of the company is to release the slot prior to the Olympic Games in Tokyo in order to provoke the public’s interest.
Bolt revealed the date by stating that the summer of 2020 won’t only bring “the biggest sporting competition in the world” but also his interesting partnership with an iGaming provider, Ganapati. In addition, Bolt expressed his pride and enthusiasm for this partnership by stressing that the company’s philosophy for innovation fits with his ambitions.
For Ganapati, it isn’t the first time that they collaborated with a world sports icon as last year they created the official Manny Pacquiao slot, a slot dedicated to the legendary boxer from the Philippines.
Juliet Adelstein, Ganapati’s COO, commented that partnering with Usain Bolt is proof that the Japanese company has noted serious growth in the past few years. He added that everyone in the company is looking forward to the release of this special game dedicated to one of the most important athletes in the history of sports.
