FTSE-listed gambling technology supplier Playtech Plc has confirmed that it has expanded its lead systems supplier partnership with Olympic Entertainment Group (OEG), Eastern Europe’s largest gambling operator.
Securing a long-term partnership, OEG governance has selected Playtech’s Neon casino management system to deliver on ‘connecting more than 100 casinos in five countries, covering approximately 3,500 electronic gaming machines combined with 150 gaming tables’.
Playtech Neon will move to replace OEG legacy systems across its multi-market portfolio operating within the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and with further land-based casino enterprises in Slovakia, Italy and Malta.
Updating the market, Martin Sykes, Managing Director, Playtech IGS, said: “We have worked closely with the Olympic team for many years and look forward to completing the rollout and activating Neon’s premium functionality. Olympic is one of the world’s most successful, innovative and professional operators and we are very proud to have been chosen as the group’s long-term strategic partner.”
Prior to the pending rollout, Playtech’s Neon system has been successfully launched within OEG’s flagship Olympic Park Tallinn Casino.
The OEG casino systems upgrade will be delivered as HTML5 applications, requiring no footprint in the casino and offering unprecedented flexibility for how users and players can interact with the system.
Oleg Jurtšenko, Chief Information officer of Olympic Entertainment Group said: “We are looking forward to taking full advantage of Neon by operating the system across all of our international operations. We evaluated all the leading systems and selected Playtech because of their understanding of our requirements, modern architecture and willingness to adapt Neon to our needs.”
Playtech has begun its Noen implementation and targets an OEG systems completion in 2018.
