Playtech Seals Five-Year Bingo Extension With Rank Group

Playtech will continue to provide Rank with exclusive network content and bespoke games created for its brands by fulfilling a main bingo deal, offering a ‘point of differentiation’ within the crowded marketplace of online bingo.

Angus Nisbet, Director of Digital Bingo at Playtech Plc said: “Rank is a much-valued Playtech partner and, following Rank’s launch of Playtech’s Poker platform and content, this latest agreement represents a key milestone in our working relationship

“With bespoke content development at the heart of the agreement, we can continue bringing fresh, innovative content to Mecca Bingo players, as well as introducing new and classic content to a whole new audience through the Lucky Pants and Kitty Bingo brands.”
