Under the agreement Playtech became Holland Casinos’ strategic technology supplier delivering its full turnkey multichannel technology as well as certain ancillary services. The launch of Playtech’s IMS platform, Sportsbook, Casino, Live Casino and Poker software is the first of its kind in the Netherlands and builds on Playtech’s track record of developing newly regulated online markets.
