Playtech launches with Holland Casino in the Netherlands
Playtech will become Holland Casino’s strategic technology supplier, giving the operator access to its multichannel technology. Playtech will offer its information management solution platform, sportsbook, casino, live casino and poker software across the Netherlands.
“Essential to Playtech’s success is our ability to partner with the leading entertainment companies in the most compelling and exciting markets,” said Mor Weizer, CEO of Playtech.
“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.”
Also as part of the agreement, a live casino studio has been built close to the existing Holland Casino property in Scheveningen. This studio gives players access to Playtech live tables through Playtech’s casino site, which include blackjack and roulette.
“At Holland Casino we know the importance of offering our customers the best product and experiences in a safe and enjoyable online environment,” said Erwin van Lambaart, CEO of Holland Casino.
“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.”
Holland Casino debuted its own product on the Dutch igaming market at the beginning of the month, after it received one of the first 10 Dutch online licenses from the Kansspelautoriteit.
However, this was delayed slightly due to an issue with the Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kansspelen (Cruks) self-exclusion program.
The initial market opening date was 1 October, a date that had been delayed three times.
Several operators have recently launched in the Netherlands for Dutch-based operators, such as Finnplay and Evolution, who both launched through Janshen-Hahnraths.
