Swiss Casinos Group

Playtech has officially launched in Switzerland.

The well-known software provider, which is popular for its progressive jackpot games, announced that it had officially launched in Sweden after striking a partnership with the country’s leading operator Swiss Casino Group.

Under the partnership, Swiss Casino Group becomes the casino operator in Switzerland to offer Playtech’s collection of jackpot slots and live casino games. Some of the games offered to Swiss Casino Group casino’s include the Age Of The Gods series, the DC Comics jackpots and live casino games Roulette, Sic Bo, Poker, Baccarat and Blackjack.

The casino operator owns Switzerland’s largest casino Casino Zurich where many of Playtech’s games have launched. What’s more, the agreement between the two firms comes shortly after the introduction of new regulation in Switzerland which allowed for the launch of the nation’s online regulated market.

As part of the agreement, Swiss casino users who register at a Casino Zurich site will also benefit from Playtech’s ONE Omni-Channel which allows players to access the software provider’s content anywhere, at any time and on any device through a single wallet and account.

What They Say

Playtech’s Chief Of Operations Shimon Akad said in a statement: “Live casino is a hugely exciting growth area for Playtech, and we’re proud to partner with Swiss Casino on Switzerland’s first venture into this space. They are the ideal company to introduce Live to the country given their leading market position in Switzerland.

“Playtech has always maintained a focus on being the partner of choice across regulated and newly regulated markets. This kind of partnership, opening up a new sector in a newly regulated market, is a perfect example of our strategy in action. We look forward to a long, successful partnership with Swiss Casino.”

Marc Baumann, the CEO of Swiss Casinos Group, added: “The new Money Gaming Act has given casinos in Switzerland the opportunity to enter the online market for the first time. Swiss Casinos has successfully established itself as the market leader for landbased casinos in Switzerland.

“Choosing the partner for the online platform then was our top priority and we are delighted to partner with Playtech. In our partnership with Playtech, we want to continue the success story of Swiss Casinos in the online market as well. The outstanding offer, the high competence of the team and the flexibility in adapting to the regulatory requirements have laid the foundation for a successful and long-term cooperation.”
