Playtech claims top prize at eGR Italy Awards
Playtech, the world’s leading multi-channel gaming software and
services supplier, has won the eGaming Review Software Supplier of the
Year prize at the publication’s inaugural Italy Awards held in Rome.
The company was awarded the honour for its significant achievements in
one of Europe’s most important regulated gaming markets, beating a
number of its well-established local and international rivals in the
Mor Weizer, Playtech CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to win this award.
Italy is, and continues to be, one of the most important regulated
markets for Playtech and we have big plans to extend our market share
across all channels and products.”
Playtech has been active in Italy since the market regulated in 2007
with the country firmly establishing itself as one of Europe’s most
mature gaming jurisdictions. The London-listed company currently offers
casino and live casino, bingo, and poker and in August agreed an
exclusive five-year structured deal with RCS Media Group, one Italy’s
largest media organisations and its leading sports newspaper Gazzetta
dello Sport, to provide it with online and mobile sports betting and
casino software and services.
Playtech is the leading online casino software provider in Italy as
well as operating the country’s most cutting-edge bingo network. This
year has been key to the network’s growth with all its licensees,
including Italy’s largest operators Sisal, Snai, EuroBet and William
Hill, joining a unified network in July. This gives players access to
Italy’s largest bingo liquidity pool.
Playtech also recently acquired Aristocrat Lotteries – a leading
supplier of server-based-gaming and online client server solutions for
interactive video terminals – positioning its retail operation as one of
the largest suppliers of VLT systems in Europe, including a significant
VLT contract in Italy.
