    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.

    A Significant, Long Term Partnership:

This deal is a real testament to the hard work of all our teams, especially the innovation of their content and services.”
