Playtech has recently completed the signing of a new contract with Parx Casino’s operator, Greenwood Racing. This deal will facilitate the expansion of Playtech, its products and games in the multi-billion dollar US casino market. Particularly, the strategic partnership between Playtech and Greenwood Racing is going to allow for Playtech to showcase their services and products in some of the US’ biggest markets in terms of casino gambling, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania. These are all states where Parx Casino already has an established presence.
It seems like Playtech is really keen on capturing the US market. Their recent deals with the likes of Bet365 and BetMGM also allowed for them to capture a share of the US market. However, their deal with Parx is arguably going to be the biggest contributor to Playtech’s expansion in the US so far.
Mor Weizer, who was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of Playtech in 2007, made a statement regarding the partnership with Parx Casino. He remarked that the partnership between the two firms was a major milestone in the journey of Playtech. He also expressed his excitement to work with Parx in the upcoming years in order to realize the collaborative objectives of both parties.
