Very exciting news has emerged this week telling of a Playtech and Bet365 collaboration, where the gambling provider giant has built the largest studio it has ever had. They constructed two individual studios which host two roulette tables with the classic single-zero setup, three baccarat tables, twelve 7-seat tables for blackjack, and finally, two blackjack tables with the all bets feature.
The newly built studios will also host Super Spin Roulette, which is a roulette game that has multipliers and will be available exclusively. Playtech and Bet365 worked closely to build this new game, which will see players experience a random multiplier applying to areas of the roulette wheel on every spin. Live casino fans will instantly notice this title’s similarity with Evolution’s Lightning Roulette, Pragmatic Play’s Mega Roulette, and Playtech’s own Quantum Roulette.
This latest news highlights just highlights what an explosive start Playtech has had to 2022, following the new Banijay partnership. Of course, the company is also frequently in the news regarding its expected takeover. Aristocrat, JKO Play, and Gopher Investments have all shown an interest in acquiring the company in the past few months. Aristocrat appeared to be in the driving seat, with Playtech announcing they would vote on the £2.7bn bid on the 12th of January. However, with the additional interest shown, that vote was delayed seemingly hoping to generate a bidding war.
Playtech Delighted with Bet365 Partnership
Playtech’s head of live casino, Kevin Kilminster, was overjoyed that the company could get the deal over the line with such a reputable partner as Bet365. Bet365 has been looking for new ways to create fresh and appealing content that it can offer its customers, and the Coates family-owned business saw Playtech as the perfect solution for this.
Kevin Kilminster has recognised what this new roulette variant means for the company, as it branches out to offer more unique content. He believes that Super Spin Roulette brings a gaming experience like no other, which is incredibly exciting for the company. The new studios show Playtech’s scale, as well as its commitment to supporting its partners, as the new studios are both designed to a standard that can only be described as ‘exceptional’.
Playtech is looking forward to a long and successful future with Bet365, a world-class operator, stated Kilminster.
Playtech is the second largest live casino developer behind Evolution, but it has made a concerted effort to close that gap in recent months. The firm recently launched the first of three new Who Wants to be a Millionaire live casino games, opened two new live casino studios in the US, and launched the FashionTV branded Jackpot Baccarat title.
