Playtech to Power Estonian Olympic Casino Group

Published Saturday, January 09, 2010 -

Playtech software is world renowned for it's reliability and innovation. Playtech was founded in 1999 by a group of entrepreneurs that came from the casino, software engineering, and multi media industries. This group kept a close eye on the Internet gambling industry since the mid ‘90s and when they decided it was time to enter the market it was with a new point of view. By 2001, Playtech began with the launch of Club Dice casino. Club Dice casino featured version 1.1 of Playtech’s client software, which included fresh features like player comp points, a VIP club, transaction histories, multi-platform compatibility and a multiplayer mode. Since then Playtech has made strategic business deals with many top notch online casinos and has continued to grow with confidence. Now in 2010 the company has made even more inroads into what a decade ago seemed a distant dream. 

Playtech will be the first online gaming software provider to operate in Estonia. A recent report in the Estonian Free Press says that in 2010 Estonia will legalize online gambling and Estonians will be able to wager only on national gaming platforms. The first is to be set up by the Olympic Casino group, having chosen Playtech as its software provider. Mor Weizer, Playtech Chief Executive Officer said in a press interview, "We are truly glad of this opportunity to start our partnership with Olympic as the leading casino entertainment provider in Central and Eastern Europe." adding that Playtech's core strategy had succeeded in Estonia as well. This strategy involves providing premium technological solutions to companies operating in well regulated markets. It is suggested by the paper that the Baltic country and the region in general will receive massive infrastructure funding to help develop the online gambling industry. The region does need some capital to make it attractive to the internet community and as the new liberalization of rules regarding online gambling are implemented those funds will definitely appear.
