Playtech launches virtual tennis product
Playtech has unveiled a new virtual tennis product that will be made available across all platforms, channels and devices.
Developed in partnership with Warner Bros. Studios, ‘Playtech Virtual Tennis’ offers a host of pre-match betting markets to customers.
Playtech said the new game represents the largest motion capture project ever attempted, with its virtual sports team using professional athletes in competition conditions, as well as techniques and technology used in blockbuster films.
The firm was also able to utilise one of Warner Bros. Studios’ largest film stages for three weeks to help make the game more realistic.
Elliott Norris, head of virtual sports at Playtech, said: “Our Virtual Tennis product is unlike anything the industry has ever seen and feels as if you are courtside watching a Grand Slam.
“The team has done a phenomenal job and we’re delighted and incredibly proud of the results.
“The graphics are mind-blowing and we are the only company able to offer full sports simulations, meaning that betting and gameplay are as realistic as possible.”
