In March 2020, the world’s leading gambling software company, Playtech, announced that it had launched another three Live Roulette tables in the Spanish market. These new tables, which are the first roulette games to be designed using Playtech Live’s innovative ‘Green Screen’ technology, are now online at GVC’s Bwin, PartyCasino, and PartyPoker brands. Furthermore, each table will be hosted by native-speaking Spanish dealers.
This new roll-out of tables comes only a few months after GVC introduced Playtech’s Quantum Roulette Live into the same market. This was Spain’s first taste of live roulette with RNG win multiplier boosts on each spin; as well as, the unique Quantum Leap and Quantum Boost special in-game events.
Through the partnership with GVC and its licenced brands, Playtech has steadily risen to the top of the live casino sector in Spain. It’s estimated that by 2023 the entire online gambling industry will be worth between €1 billion and €1.5 billion in this country, and Playtech and GVC are primed to reap the rewards.
Existing Contracts Extended & US Expansion
On top of this news, Playtech also announced a five-year extension to its exclusive supply contract with the popular UK brand Betfred. Through this deal, it will supply live casino tables, casino software, poker and bingo. Currently, Playtech Live Casino provides Unlimited and Prestige Blackjack, Sic Bo, Hi-Lo, Roulette, Quantum Roulette, Baccarat, and Casino Poker tables. It has the world’s largest live casino studio, based in Riga, Latvia, and there are plans to open up a live studio in the United States later on in 2020.
Playtech Determined to Challenge Evolution’s Dominance
For years, all live casino operators have been playing second fiddle to the multi-award-winning Evolution Gaming. This exceptional company is the clear global leader in this niche. It offers a greater variety of games, more varied table bet limits, and its products are available at many more casinos.
However, Playtech is serious about improving its live casino offering, as these recent developments and announcements have demonstrated. It also launched All Bets Blackjack tables across its partner brands. These games allow for an unlimited number of players, so no one misses out on a seat. Plus, they include a series of exciting side bets, including Perfect Pairs, 21 + 3, and Lucky Lucky.
Furthermore, at selected casinos, you can enjoy the ground-breaking Buffalo Blitz Live. This iconic slot can now be played with live dealers. A host oversees the action and sets the reels in motion for each spin. Players can chat with each other as well as interacting with the host.
