Playtech Joins bet365 in New Jersey
August 25, 2020
Playtech is one of the world’s largest and most prominent online casino software developers. For more than two decades, Playtech has been providing content for the bet365 conglomerate and its impressive list of online gambling websites in Europe. Now, Playtech is ready to join the bet365 party in New Jersey.
The bet365 group first opened its retail and online sportsbooks to New Jersey sports bettors in 2019. Aside from enduring the damage caused by the COVID19 pandemic past and present, it would be accurate to say that bet365’s venture into the U.S. market has been successful. The only thing that has been missing is the ability to offer a robust online casino platform to is New Jersey customer base. By signing a new agreement with Playtech, bet365 is now poised to become one of the state’s top online gambling operators.
To be clear, bet365 has always provided access to online casino games through its sportsbook website. However, the roster of games lacked the depth that online casino players can get from other providers. With hundreds of games now coming from the Playtech library, bet365 will be able to compete at a higher level.
For players who are fairly new to the online casino gambling concept, Playtech has been developing top video slots for well over 20 years. It won’t take slot enthusiasts long to learn about Playtech’s relationship with the Marvel Comics sphere. The company has developed no less than a dozen video slots based on popular Marvel comic book heroes. The list of these games includes Iron Man I, II, and III, Wolverine, The Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, Ghost Rider, Captain America, Elektra, and The Avengers.
This new contract with bet365 marks Playtech’s first exposure within the U.S. online gambling market. In a press release, A bet365 spokesperson had this to say:
“We’re excited to partner with Playtech to expand our content offering to the US market. Given the range and caliber of Playtech’s content, being first to market it is a real differentiator for our platform. We look forward to developing upon our already solid partnership as we continue to grow our Casino offering.”
According to Shimon Akad, Playtech Chief Operating Officer, the move to join bet365 in the U.S. represents the company's commitment to bringing its products to new markets.
At the end of the day, the real winners will be New Jersey online gamblers, who will now get the opportunity to experience playing some of the best online casino games the industry has to offer.
