With long-term partner Norsk Tipping updating their current technology services agreement between the two companies, Playtech Plc has maintained a firm closure of its 2020 commercial activities.
Two new supplier agreements with Playtech for online casinos and Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) products have been signed by Norway’s state-owned gambling operator.
All Norwegian government procurement processes were cleared by the FTSE250 technology group to become the authorised supplier of new casino content and VLT systems for Norsk Tipping that comply with Norway’s strict national gambling laws.
Hans Erland Ringsvold, Head of Gaming Operations at Norsk Tipping said: “We are excited to continue our partnership with Playtech and look forward to launching their strong roadmap of online casino and VLT games on our platforms.
“We are confident that Playtech’s proven VLT and online casino expertise in a wide range of regulated markets will continue to provide great value for Norsk Tipping and support us in the delivery of our overall content strategy.”
Since 2003, Playtech has acted as the lead systems and platform supplier to Norsk Tipping. Norsk Tipping will greatly broaden its portfolio of online casino games, including studio-developed titles from Roots, Quickspin, Vikings, Rarestone and Ash Gaming from Playtech.
Playtech will offer its collection of VLT games to Norsk Tipping terminals located across Norway via the VLT games agreement, producing exclusive games for Norwegian customers.
Playtech also saw stable contract upgrades with long-term tier 1 partners, Betfred, Boylesports and Mansion Group for 2020 trading.
The Chief Operating Officer, Shimon Akad, said: “Playtech content has proven to be very popular with Norsk Tipping’s players. We are excited to continue supplying our strong roadmap of content to them as part of developing a market-leading, modern and responsible online and retail game offering to their players”.
“These new agreements are also a testament to our strength in games content for online casino and VLT retail markets, including the highly regulated and responsible-gaming oriented markets of Norway and the Nordic region. It also highlights our strategy of focusing on long-term partnerships with leading operators in regulated markets.”
