Wplay and Playtech extend Colombia partnership with platform launch


Playtech has launched its IMS technology platform with leading Colombian operator Wplay across all retail and online platforms.

The two companies have been in partnership since 2019, when Wplay selected Playtech as its strategic technology partner to deliver omni-channel platform and marketing services.

Wplay, live with online betting and gaming in the regulated Colombian market since 2017, employs around 200 staff in the city of Medellín.

The launch of the IMS platform strengthens the partnership with Wplay and marks another significant step in Playtech’s growth in Latin America, as Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech, explains.

“We are extremely proud to work so closely with such a leading operator,” said Akad. “Wplay will utilise the leading IMS platform features to drive innovation and growth in the Colombian market. Playtech is highly committed to future success and growth of the LATAM region, and we are seeing strong growth from our partners there and expect to see material growth for years to come”.

Fernanda Sainz, CMO at Wplay, added: “We are excited to launch our new technology platform with Playtech. Its industry leading software and expertise will help take the Colombian market to the next level.

“This launch continues to build on our current leadership position in Colombia, helping us consistently deliver the very best user experience in the market”.
