Updating the market, Playtech Plc has confirmed that it has renewed principal online bingo and games supplier terms with Rank Group Plc subsidiary Mecca Bingo, the firm’s biggest online bingo partner.
The FTSE-listed gambling technology supplier was pleased to renew its ‘more than a decade long’ partnership with Mecca Bingo, turning the brand into a leading online bingo destination for UK consumers.
Agreeing a multi-year extension of services, Playtech retains its position as exclusive provider of bingo and games content, and will further cover provisions to bolster Mecca Bingo with further points of differentiation.

Colin Cole-Johnson, Group Director, Rank Group, said: “It is a suite of products our customers know and love, and this has been an important partnership for Mecca since 2006, so naturally we are pleased that an agreement has been reached to develop this further.”
