Playtech is one of the most important software providers in the industry and they are cooperating for some years now with Betfred, one of the great British bookmakers. As the first part announced to their investors, this cooperation with casino platform lead supplier will be continued until 2020. We should remind that just a few months ago, Betfred agreed with GVC Holdings to move its digital platform for sports betting and igaming services there and many thought that they may transfer the casino platform there, too, but the agreement was terminated in the beginning of the current year. Today’s announcement, sees Playtech continue its ‘decade long’ casino platform supplier agreement with Betfred.
Rakesh Chablani, who is the Managing Director at Betfred.com, commented on the extension: «Agreeing today’s extension is a great way to start 2017. Playtech are one of our most important partners and enable us to offer our players the industry’s leading gaming experience”. Playtech’s CEO, Mr Mor Weizer, stated: «We’re delighted to have agreed this renewal with Betfred, one of our key partners and licensees. I’m also very pleased on a personal note. Betfred was one of the first contracts I put together when I joined Playtech more than 10 years ago so to agree this with them until beyond 2020 is fantastic news».
