    Extending the Playtech Ecosystem:

    This deal will see Playtech’s ecosystem being extended throughout GVC’s brands allowing their customers access to a catalog of over 600 games including branded slots like Terminator Genisys and cross-vertical progressive jackpots that offer a seamless cross-product journey to players.

    In the UK, bwin and Sportingbet will also offer the exclusive casino tab that is already offered on GVC’s Ladbrokes and Coral brands.

    In addition to the UK, the partnership is also live in the regulated markets of Belgium and Greece where GVC has casino licenses for Sportingbet and Vistabet brands. GVC and Playtech also hope to expand the partnership to new markets in 2019 and 2020.

    A Significant, Long Term Partnership:

    “This programme of key launches represents the first stage of what we believe will be a significant, long-term partnership with GVC. GVC’s desire to bring Playtech’s products and services to all of its customers across its portfolio of leading brands underlines Playtech’s position as the preeminent technology partner in regulated and fast-growing markets. We have a longstanding partnership with GVC and we are pleased to see it grow. This deal is a real testament to the hard work of all our teams, especially the innovation of their content and services.”

    Shay Segev, the Co-COO of GVC, added:

    “Our strategic partnership with Playtech goes from strength to strength, driving growth in both of our businesses. Playtech’s content has already proved hugely popular with our customers where it is already live and we look forward to rolling it out in further markets over the coming months.”
