Playtech, the global supplier of technology, slot games and live dealer games for online casinos, has announced the steps it will take in order to resolve the dispute with Caliplay, the Mexican sports betting and online gambling brand.
The disagreement reached its peak a few weeks ago, when Caliplay announced it has filed legal action against Playtech in order to annul the partnership agreement between the two companies.
Caliplay was formed as a joint venture between Playtech and Caliente, a Mexico-facing online casino and sports betting operator. Now Caliplay is looking to end its partnership with Playtech and the matter was handed to the Mexican legal system. The Mexican court accepted jurisdiction over the filing and issued interim orders which suspend certain rights that Playtech had under the agreement with Caliente.
The supplier was ordered by the court to continue providing its software and services to Caliplay until the claim is settled. However, Playtech was no longer entitled to receiving payments from Caliplay for its services.
