Virtual Retail

In July 2016, we launched our pioneering Virtual Sports Football Accumulator product, deployed across hundreds of UK Coral shops. Replicating a real-life football accumulator or ‘acca’, our innovative product, that is streamed locally via a Linux hardware box solution, is comprised of four 90-second matches running simultaneously every five minutes. This presents the player with an extensive range of options in every betting round and allows them to view a ‘Feature Game’, while concurrently seeing results appear for the three remaining fixtures.

Our accumulator product marked the first of our Playtech Sports virtual product to be launched in a retail environment. It remains an industry-first and is unique to the market due to its unrivalled HD quality, cost effectiveness and swift deployment across our locally managed server solution, ensuring low impact on operator resources.
