Holland Casino Goes Live with Playtech Technology
Under the agreement, Playtech became Holland Casinos’ strategic technology supplier delivering its full turnkey multichannel technology as well as certain ancillary services. The launch of Playtech’s IMS platform, Sportsbook, Casino, Live Casino and Poker software is the first of its kind in the Netherlands and builds on Playtech’s track record of developing newly regulated online markets.
Founded almost 45 years ago, Holland Casino is the state-owned, land-based casino operator in the Netherlands. It operates 14 casinos across the country with some six million guests visiting every year. Holland Casino offers its guests a safe and responsible gaming environment and an exceptional experience through a combination of high-level gaming, entertainment, and hospitality.
As part of the agreement, a new Live Casino studio has been built separately from, but in the vicinity of, the existing Holland Casino site in Scheveningen. The Live Casino studio has been built in close collaboration with multiple teams and strengthens the strategic relationship between the two companies. As a result, the high production studio offers Dutch players direct access to the Playtech Live tables via the casino website and includes Live Blackjack and Roulette, as well as Baccarat and the scalable Blackjack version of All Bets.
Mor Weizer, Playtech, CEO, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of this strategic co-operation. Essential to Playtech’s success is our ability to partner with the leading entertainment companies in the most compelling and exciting markets. For 45 years Holland Casino has been a pillar of the leisure landscape in the Netherlands, and we are very proud to be working alongside them to build a market-leading responsible multi gambling proposition focused and sustainable entertainment experience that will take the Dutch to the next level.’
Erwin van Lambaart, Holland Casino, CEO, said: “At Holland Casino, we know the importance of offering our customers the best product and experiences in a safe and enjoyable online environment. Our co-operation with Playtech means that we can deliver the new online market in the Netherlands with an engaging and enjoyable online experience with the highest level of player protection. Alongside Playtech’s unrivalled multichannel technology, its strong track record in delivering industry-leading software to newly regulated markets make them a trusted and experienced supplier. We are at the beginning of an exciting opportunity, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Playtech.”
