Playtech agrees online casino and VLT games deals with Norsk Tipping
Agreements further strengthen long-standing strategic partnership with Norway’s national gaming operator
Playtech, the world’s leading gambling technology company, has announced the signing of two new agreements to supply Norway’s national gaming operator Norsk Tipping with a range of online casino and video lottery terminals (VLT) products. Both agreements follow two public procurement processes by Norsk Tipping.
These agreements further extend the long-term strategic partnership between Playtech and Norsk Tipping. Playtech has supplied online casino games to the operator since 2016 and VLT platforms, games, terminals and services since 2003. The signing of the agreements will see this partnership extended and expanded within each product area.
The new online casino agreement means Norsk Tipping will be able to access Playtech’s ever increasing range of new and innovative online casino games, coming from its strong line-up of Playtech game studios including Origins, Quickspin, Vikings, Rarestone and Ash.
The VLT games agreement will see Playtech deliver its range of VLT games to Norsk Tipping’s terminals located throughout Norway. Playtech will supply its best-performing VLT content to the market and will also work closely with Norsk Tipping to create unique custom content for the Norwegian market.
Commenting on the deals, Shimon Akad, chief operating officer at Playtech, said: “Playtech content has proven to be very popular with Norsk Tipping’s players. We are excited to continue supplying our strong roadmap of content to them as part of developing a market-leading, modern and responsible online and retail game offering to their players.
“These new agreements are also a testament to our strength in games content for online casino and VLT retail markets, including the highly regulated and responsible-gaming oriented markets of Norway and the Nordic region. It also highlights our strategy of focusing on long-term partnerships with leading operators in regulated markets.”
Hans Erland Ringsvold, head of gaming operations at Norsk Tipping, added: “We are excited to continue our partnership with Playtech and look forward to launching their strong roadmap of online casino and VLT games on our platforms. We are confident that Playtech’s proven VLT and online casino expertise in a wide range of regulated markets will continue to provide great value for Norsk Tipping and support us in the delivery of our overall content strategy.”
