Playtech Plc has maintained a strong closing to its 2020 commercial activities, with long-term partner Norsk Tipping upgrading its existing technology services agreement between the two firms.
Norway’s state-owned gambling operator has signed two new supplier agreements with Playtech for online casino and Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) products.
The FTSE250 technology group cleared all Norwegian government procurement processes to become the designated supplier of new casino content and VLT systems for Norsk Tipping adhering to Norway’s strict national gambling laws.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Playtech and look forward to launching their strong roadmap of online casino and VLT games on our platforms,” said Hans Erland Ringsvold, Head of Gaming Operations at Norsk Tipping.
“We are confident that Playtech’s proven VLT and online casino expertise in a wide range of regulated markets will continue to provide great value for Norsk Tipping and support us in the delivery of our overall content strategy”
Playtech has served as Norsk Tipping’s lead systems and platform supplier since 2003. Moving forward, Norsk Tipping will significantly expand its online casino games portfolio, featuring Playtech’s studio-developed titles from Origins, Quickspin, Vikings, Rarestone and Ash Gaming.
The VLT games agreement will see Playtech deliver its range of VLT games to Norsk Tipping’s terminals located throughout Norway, creating exclusive games for Norwegian customers
2020 trading has also seen Playtech secure contract upgrades with long-term tier 1 partners, Betfred, Boylesports and Mansion Group.
Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer, said: “Playtech content has proven to be very popular with Norsk Tipping’s players. We are excited to continue supplying our strong roadmap of content to them as part of developing a market-leading, modern and responsible online and retail game offering to their players”.
“These new agreements are also a testament to our strength in games content for online casino and VLT retail markets, including the highly regulated and responsible-gaming oriented markets of Norway and the Nordic region. It also highlights our strategy of focusing on long-term partnerships with leading operators in regulated markets.”
