Playtech & Sky Betting Partnership Renewed
Under this new extended agreement, Playtech will continue to provide the online casino giant with a full suite of gaming software, systems, and solutions across all of their channels.
The renewal did not come as a surprise to industry insiders, as the partnership is widely known to be mutually beneficial. Sky has consistently grown revenues in all verticals – casino, live casino, and bingo – since partnering with Playtech several years ago. Under this new extended agreement, Playtech will continue to provide the online casino giant with a full suite of gaming software, systems, and solutions across all of their channels.
Playtech CEO: A “Fantastic” Relationship

“Over the years we have developed a fantastic relationship with Richard and his team and we’re delighted Sky Betting & Gaming has signed a long-term, multi-product extension that brings together one of the UK’s best-performing and fastest growing UK sports betting and gaming operators and the industry’s best-performing software and technology supplier and, in turn, secures both our future growth.”

Given the new agreement, joint ventures such as this one are only expected to grow deeper and more numerous. Needless to say, this is exciting new for online casino players looking to benefit from these collaborative innovations.
