Playtech takes over supply of Austrian poker network
Playtech, the world’s leading omni-channel gaming software and
services supplier, has agreed terms with win2day to take over supply of
Austria’s regulated online poker network.
The initial three-year deal will see Playtech work closely with the
Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria-owned win2day brand to replace
existing suppliers and deliver a cutting-edge, bespoke desktop and
mobile-enabled poker platform for the country’s only regulated network.
Playtech will launch the platform in mid-March this year, providing
ongoing software and technical support and working closely with the
brand to expand the offering over the next three years.
Playtech has invested significant development resource in refreshing
its award-winning iPoker client including a new lobby and home tab, a
full overhaul of the software’s poker tables and a series of new game
views enabling easier and fully personalised access to a wide variety of
players’ favourite games.
A number of leading international sports betting and gaming brands
including Coral and bet365 have recently gone live with Playtech’s
innovative iPoker client featuring a host of new and enhanced
functionality and allowing for rapid future feature and games releases.
The client – which can be tested and viewed on www.ipokerbeta.com
– offers quicker and easier access to players’ favourite games via a
new home lobby tab and quick seat function. The new software’s
personalisation capabilities allow it to remember the games you have
previously played. These are then automatically adding to the game
selection in your home screen giving you rapid access to your favourites
without having to browse through a long table list.
Enhanced filters make it easy to find and join any game, tournament
or specific cash table, while a new tiled design also ensures players
can select any limit and sit in any game such as Twister Poker, Sit and
Go or tournament, in a few clicks of a mouse.
Players on the world’s largest poker network can also fully control
and further personalise their lobbies using the new ‘My Poker’ section.
This gives them access to a variety of settings and customisation
options as well as overviews on poker bonuses, rewards, favourite games,
free tokens, messages and more.
Joerg Nottebaum, head of iPoker, Playtech, said: “Working in
regulated and newly regulating markets with the largest and leading
operators is one of Playtech’s core strengths. We’re delighted to have
agreed terms with Win2Day and look forward to developing not only the
country’s first, but also best-performing poker network and products.”
