The software developers, who are based on the Isle of Man, are the world's largest online gaming and sports betting software supplier and already provide Sky Bet with online bingo software. Now they are extending their agreement to cover Sky Bet’s full casino games library, including table, card and slots games as well as a wide variety of branded content for computer and mobile games.
Playtech has also taken over as the exclusive live dealer provider for Sky Bet, which the company says will help to improve players’ experiences and cement the online casino’s position at the forefront of the gaming market.
The door has been left open for further cooperation between the two companies after they said they would be keen to explore new opportunities if and when they arise.
Playtech chief operating officer Shay Segev said, “We have built a strong relationship with Sky over a number of years and are thrilled to be able to further consolidate our service provision to one of the industry’s most exciting operators.
“We look forward to working with Sky Bet to explore additional business opportunities in the near future.”
Conor Grant, Sky Bet’s director of products, said, “We are delighted to launch Sky Casino where our customers will enjoy a classic casino experience with more personalised promotions and rewards. Partnering with Playtech and utilising their industry leading casino platform allows us to create another exciting chapter in the development of Sky Betting and Gaming.”
