A mutual global distribution agreement has been signed between Scientific Games and Playtech, which will allow the two casino software providers to increase their scale and distribution in North America, Latin America and Europe.
Science games are of course known to create some of the most popular land slot machine games including Zeus, Raging Rhino, and Bruce Lee, all of which have proven to be a hit in the online environment. While Playtech, which was established in 1999, is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of casino software when it comes to producing online casino game content.
Following the agreement, Playtech’s software will be available to operators through Scientific Games Open Gaming System (OGS). This includes all of Playtech’s online casino game offerings, from their online slots portfolio to their live casino games.
Speaking about the deal between the two heavyweight casino software developers, Shimon Akad, COO of Playtech, said: “This is an exciting deal with two of the biggest names in the industry which is expected to have a major impact on iGaming around the world.”
“A key pillar of our strategy is to increase the distribution of our software through mutually beneficial partnerships with leading B2B vendors in key markets, while increasing the depth of content and services we offer to our existing customers. “
“This partnership will significantly increase the distribution of SG on the regulated markets of LATAM and Europe, while providing our customers in these markets with an even richer portfolio of exciting iGaming content. Playtech looks forward to benefiting from SG’s leadership in the United States as we plan to deploy Playtech casino software in all regulated states.
In addition to Akad’s comments, Jordan Levin, Managing Director of Digital at Scientific Games, said: “Together with Playtech, we will bring exciting and quality gaming content to the US market and beyond. “
“This latest partnership once again demonstrates the key role OpenGaming plays in opening up new opportunities for game providers to expand their footprint in major regulated markets.”
“We are very excited to bring Playtech’s world-class games to our operational partners around the world and to provide their player base with exceptional entertainment experiences. “
