Playtech, one of the world’s most important providers of video slots and live dealer games for online casinos, has reached a new agreement with AMC Networks, the big American television and entertainment company.
The deal’s purpose is to grant Playtech worldwide rights to create branded online games based on popular television programmes created and produced by AMC Networks. The list includes franchises that are well-known all over the world, such as The Walking Dead, Marriage Boot Camp and Bridezillas.
Playtech will begin working on the games right away, aiming to release the first slots of this series by the end of 2021. However, the majority of the games based on AMC Networks shows will hit the market in 2022.
Speaking about the opportunities created by this agreement, Shimon Akad, the Chief Operating Officer of Playtech, revealed that being chosen by AMC Networks as an exclusive partner is a real honour for his company. Moreover, the partnership “demonstrates Playtech’s continued commitment to delivering an entertainment-led experience to key strategic audiences across regulated markets.”
Clayton Neuman, Vice President of Games at AMC Networks, added that delivering the explosive action from their TV series into the online gaming world should give players a world-class gaming experience.
