(PRESS RELEASE) -- Playtech, a world gambling technology company, signed a new deal with North American online gaming company, FanDuel
, launching branded Live Casino content on their Canadian platform.
The deal is a key milestone for both companies, as FanDuel
solidifies its position as a provider of online casino experiences and builds its Live Casino offering in Canada and Playtech continues its expansion across North America.
As part of the deal, Playtech has built a dedicated Live Casino studio to serve FanDuel Canada. Based in Riga, Latvia, the studio is designed to meet the specific needs of the Canadian market and FanDuel's audience and will provide high-quality casino games for FanDuel customers in Ontario, Canada, offering Roulette, All Bets Blackjack, Baccarat and 7-Seater Blackjack.
The agreement extends the provision of the Live Casino studio to other provinces across Canada, if and when they regulate, retaining flexibility for future expansion with this deal being the latest announcement from Playtech as it drives its expansion across North America, following recent studios built for Adventures Beyond Wonderland and Big Bad Wolf.
“It’s brilliant to see Playtech Live continue its growth in North America,” said George Voyatzis, VP Commercial for Playtech. “Our partnership with FanDuel marks a really exciting moment for Playtech, and we look forward to delivering our Live Casino games for FanDuel and its users across Ontario. As we build more studios globally and release new content, this announcement is yet another example of Live taking over the gambling industry on a global scale.”
This marks the first collaboration between Playtech and FanDuel, as both companies demonstrate their appetite to enter into newly regulated markets and expand their global offerings, as well as the increasing dominance of Live Casino across the global gambling industry.
“We are proud to be announcing this deal with Playtech, which will bring our users across Canada the highest quality Live Casino experience,” said Dale Hooper, General Manager for FanDuel Canada. “The addition of the innovative FanDuel Live Casino studio has been specifically localized to cater for the Canadian market and FanDuel. This unique proposition cements FanDuel’s premium position for online casino in the North American market. The agreement marks the beginning of what is sure to be a successful and exciting partnership with one of the world’s largest game providers.”
