It also positions Playtech as the leading supplier in all of the key product segments in the online gaming industry, with very substantial liquidity in each of its player networks.
 
Licensees will also benefit from the opportunity to integrate with Playtech’s IMS information management system. Playtech highlighted that in a number of newly regulated markets, bingo is an embedded part of the social and gaming culture and a product which finds early favour with regulators.
