New site extends unrivalled global live casino presence and opens doors to rapidly growing emerging market
London: January 11th 2017 – Playtech, the world’s leading gaming content and software, systems and services supplier, has opened a state-of-the-art live casino studio facility in Bucharest, Romania to cater for a huge demand in licensees in the newly regulated Eastern European country.
Playtech’s new Romania live casino facility employs native dealers and further bolsters its position as the world’s leading live casino software and content provider with the largest global footprint in the gaming industry.
Playtech has well-established, large-scale live casino studios in Manila and across Europe including Latvia and other regulated markets including Spain and Belgium in order to cater to local audiences in regulated and soon-to-be regulated jurisdictions.
The facility, that was delivered ahead of schedule, offers licensees a huge range of new and classic game variants including live blackjack, roulette and casino hold’em. All products are streamed using the latest HD camera equipment and next generation live gaming platform offering available across all desktop and mobile devices.
Romania opened its newly regulated, licensed online gaming framework earlier this year with Playtech receiving approval for four licences including software, live studio, platform and hosting services.
Mor Weizer, Playtech CEO, said: “The opening of the new studio further solidifies Playtech’s position as the market leader in global, cutting-edge, regulated live casino.
“This is just the beginning of our growth plans with a series of exciting new products and variants in our 2017 live casino roadmap as well as significant expansion plans for our other facilities,” Weizer added.
