Posted on September 27, 2020 | 11:34 am
Playtech, one of the biggest gambling technology companies in the world, has announced that their successful casino software will be reaching New Jersey for the first time through BetMGM’s gaming network.
The agreement between two entities will see the developer provide its casino software to BetMGM Casino, Borgata Online and PartyCasino NJ. BetMGM is a powerful sports betting and gaming platform, a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings.
Targeting Growth in the United States Market
Playtech, founded all the way back in 1999, is one of the industry leaders when it comes to technology. It has been innovating constantly and now the company offers gambling software and content on multiple verticals, including live casino, sports betting, virtual sports, poker and bingo.
Their deal with BetMGM brings their software into New Jersey, but for Playtech the goal is to reach as many states as possible and further expand their reach into the American market.
From the Media
Shimon Akad, Playtech Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are delighted to launch with leading operator BetMGM in New Jersey. This is the exciting first step in our partnership which will see us launch in further states with BetMGM across its industry leading portfolio of brands as it expands on its US leadership. Starting in New Jersey, for the first time our award winning casino offering is now available across BetMGM, Borgata Online and PartyCasino NJ. This strategic deal demonstrates the strength of Playtech’s US proposition and the appeal of our gaming offering in the region as we continue to launch our pipeline of new US licensees.”
Matthew Sunderland, BetMGM Vice President of Gaming, said, “Our online casino customers in New Jersey will now be able to enjoy casino games from one of the World’s leading suppliers of gambling software. This launch continues to build on our current leadership position in Gaming in New Jersey and we look forward to collaborating with Playtech as more states in the US legalize online casino gaming.”
Investing in Live Casino Vertical
BetMGM recently signed an agreement with another industry giant, Evolution Gaming, which will provide their live casino solutions to Borgata Online and Party Casino.
