Playtech adds IGT slots for US players

Gaming giant Playtech has strengthened its casino offering in the US with the addition of online slot titles from leading content developer IGT.

Under the terms of the agreement, Playtech will offer games in the US that include any of the features included within IGT’s US patent portfolio.

Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech, said: “The agreement with IGT represents another significant milestone in the growth of our presence in North America as we build on the momentum of the past few months.

“We look forward to offering the US market more of our market-leading software and technology in what is a rapidly growing US market”.

IGT holds the largest collection of slot feature patents in the US and the agreement thus represents a key moment in Playtech’s North American expansion. Having been granted a licence in New Jersey, Playtech is already live with bet365 and BetMGM.

Nick Khin, Chief Operating Officer at IGT, added: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement to provide Playtech with access to the largest game feature patent portfolio in the US.

“Working in partnership with Playtech will help propel our collective innovation and growth, and further validates our significant IP portfolio”.
