Online gaming and financial trading systems giant Playtech PLC (LON:PTEC) has announced that it has been selected by Totalizator Sportowy, the Polish national lottery provider, to supply its industry-leading online casino platform, games portfolio and services.
Playtech was awarded the exclusive contract with the 60-year-old state owned operator following a successful public tender process. Totalizator Sportowy’s decision reflects Playtech’s key strengths and unique appeal to large government-run organisations in regulated and newly regulated markets.
The contract includes integrating Playtech’s award-wining casino platform, best-performing games portfolio and supporting Totalizator Sportowy with its range of marketing and consultancy services.
The agreement forms part of Playtech’s strategy to partner with the leading land-based brands and institutions in newly regulated online markets. In addition to its industry leading games content it is the data-driven marketing and CRM capabilities of Playtech’s IMS platform that mean it is best placed to service the leading brands in new markets.
