Playtech signs multiple new partnerships
Playtech has been at the centre of multiple new partnership deals this year.
In September, it teamed up with Canadian non-profit organisation, Responsible Gaming Council.
The company will help RGC boost research of the links between mental health and gambling.
RGC is a worldwide, influential organisation that has been established for 35 years and worked with operators, regulators, treatment providers and gamblers since 1983.
This cooperation is part of Playtech’s “sustainable success” strategy, which aims to create a more responsible gambling culture.
The main goal is to provide a safe environment for players, while also maintaining a high revenue and solid customer base.
In November, Playtech also announced their integration with Affordability UK, which is supplied by TruNarrative.
This partnership aims to provide casinos with the means to detect customers who are overspending and take the necessary measures to protect them.
US gambling industry recovers in third quarter but challenge remains
The United States gambling industry is recovering from months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic but has regained 81 per cent of its revenue in the third quarter.
The casinos’ trade association said the recovery is threatened in places as the virus continues to surge throughout the country.
Last Sunday night, Michigan’s governor ordered numerous businesses, including casinos, to shut for three weeks and Atlantic City’s top casino last week laid off or cut the hours of 422 workers in response to restrictions imposed by New Jersey’s governor.
Also last Sunday, Washington’s governor banned indoor service at bars and restaurants.
The American Gaming Association released a report on gambling revenue at the nation’s casinos during the third quarter of this year, the time when most casinos reopened after four months or more of being shuttered during the first wave of the virus outbreak.
It found the industry won over $9 billion in the third quarter, which is 81 per cent of the amount ir won during the same period last year when casinos were operating normally.
