Playtech and Flutter Entertainment Extend Contract

Playtech has announced a contract extension with Flutter Entertainment. This contract extension will see the companies continue to work closely with one another, with Playtech supplying gaming solutions for many of Flutter’s biggest online casino brands.

A Strong Relationship Between Both Parties

Besides online slots, the deal will also cover Playtech’s live casino software. The gaming provider provides exclusive live casino studios for three brands: Paddy Power, Betfair, and Sky Casino.

So, for fans of live casino experiences, this extension holds the promise of even more thrilling options, including the chance to explore Adventures Beyond Wonderland live casino at Sky Vegas Live Casino which is launching later this year, marking a significant milestone in the partnership between the two iGaming giants.

Shimon Akad, CEO of Playtech, described Flutter Entertainment as one of Playtech’s most important partners. The deal will benefit both parties significantly.  Flutter Entertainment also reflected on the extension positively. The company’s CEO for UK & Ireland, Conor Grant, lifted how proud the company is to work with one of the biggest and most respected suppliers in the gambling industry.

The announcement of this deal only backs up what has already been a strong year for Playtech. During the first quarter of the year, the game provider has already secured extensions to its tier-1 iGaming contract with Kindred Group and Norsk Tipping.

Responsible Gambling Innovation

Playtech is a bit of a household name in the iGaming world. Its customer-focused technology is the perfect match for the Flutter Entertainment casino brands. Flutter's brands tend to target British and Irish players, and Playtech is careful to ensure that all of its products meet the gambling regulation guidelines set in both of these countries.

In fact, the company has a great reputation for putting an emphasis on responsible gambling and safer play. This has also been a big selling point over the years. Over the last few years, Playtech has worked closely with Coral and Sky Casino to create dedicated customer-friendly environments that meet industry standards.

This deal promises more emphasis on this in the future. The two companies are always looking for new opportunities and the launch of Sky Vegas Live Casino this year shows exactly that.
