April 10, 2013 – Playtech (LSE: PTEC), the international designer, developer, licensor and provider of software and services for the online, mobile, TV and land-based gaming industry, announces a two-year extension of the Company’s contract with Ray, the Finnish National Gaming Operator. For the past three years, following a public tender, Playtech has been providing Ray with its leading Casino and Poker products according to Finnish regulation.
During this time, Ray has had great success in the market with almost €50m in profit reported for 2012 alone.
