Playtech has joined forces with FanDuel in a new partnership that will see branded live casino content launched on its Canadian platform.
As part of the deal, Playtech has built a dedicated live casino studio – based in Riga, Latvia – to serve FanDuel Canada and provide casino games like Roulette, All Bets Blackjack, Baccarat and 7-Seater Blackjack, for their customers in Ontario
The agreement extends the provision of the live casino studio to other provinces across Canada, if and when they regulate.
Dale Hooper, General Manager, FanDuel Canada, commented: “We are proud to be announcing this deal with Playtech, which will bring our users across Canada the highest quality live casino experience.
“The addition of the innovative FanDuel Live Casino studio has been specifically localised to cater for the Canadian market and FanDuel.
“This unique proposition cements FanDuel’s premium position for online casino in the North American market. The agreement marks the beginning of what is sure to be a successful and exciting partnership with one of the world’s largest game providers.”
The agreement marks the first collaboration between Playtech and FanDuel and is regarded as a ‘key milestone’ for both.
FanDuel is attempting to solidify its position as a ‘premium provider of online casino experiences’ and build its live casino offering in Canada, while Playtech is stepping up its expansion efforts across North America, following recent studios built for Adventures Beyond Wonderland and Big Bad World.
Playtech also recently entered into a subscription agreement with Ontario-based casino and sportsbook gaming platform Northstar Gaming.
“It’s brilliant to see Playtech Live continue its growth in North America,” added George Voyatzis, VP Commercial, Playtech.
“Our partnership with FanDuel marks a really exciting moment for Playtech, and we look forward to delivering our live casino games for FanDuel and its users across Ontario.
“As we build more studios globally and release new content, this announcement is yet another example of Live taking over the gambling industry on a global scale.”
