Leading gambling technology and platform supplier Playtech Plc has joined forces with state-owned operators Veikkaus (Finland) and win2day (Austria) to build an integrated cross-border poker network. The product, which is powered by iPoker software, is ready to be launched in the upcoming days.
Prior to this collaboration, Playtech already had a well developed relationship with both operators as the developer supplied them with casino software and gaming content. In addition, the company announced that it invested significantly in its poker development resources in order to make this project possible.
According to Shimon Akad, COO of Playtech, the network comprises a milestone in the gaming industry.
Timo Kiiskinen, Senior Vice President of ICT at Veikkaus, added that the product and the network’s performance thus far were meeting the standards set in advance.
Martin Jekl, Managing Director of win2day, pointed out that the project had given their customers “access to the best and most responsible poker experience on the market.”
