Playtech to open first US live casino studio in Michigan
| By Richard Mulligan
Playtech has confirmed plans to open its first live casino studio in the US after securing a multi-year lease at a site in the city of Southfield, Michigan.
The studio – which will be linked to Playtech’s flagship studio in Riga, Latvia, via video technology – will support Playtech’s growth strategy in the US.
The company is expecting to move into the new premises in the coming months following fit-out work, although a precise date has not been disclosed due to uncertainties caused by Covid-19. The site will feature bespoke areas dedicated to specific operator clients, as well as networked tables.
A Playtech spokesperson told iGamingBusiness that Playtech would be able to scale up its facilities at the studio as the company expands its live entertainment and game show content offering for the iGaming market in Michigan and other regulated states across the US.
