Playtech, a favored gaming software in the online casino industry, has signed with its fourth Italian internet gambling operator. Cogetech S.p.A., a company which offers both land based and internet casino games is the most recent addition to Playtech’s Italian iPoker network, following Snai, Sisal and Gala Coral’s Eurobet Italia.
Cogetech.it, which offers several online slots games and a white label sports betting solution, has an entire line-up of tournament style poker games provided by Playtech. The software currently hosts only a downloadable “play for fun” format, but real money tournaments are expected by the end of the year. The idea behind this is to allow current Cogetech users to hone their skills before entering into high stakes tournaments.
The Playtech software is entirely cohesive to Cogetech’s preexisting betting system and complies fully with Italian regulatory policy. Designed specifically for the Italian demographic, although it is offered in English, it will include a shared wallet between the sportsbook and casino with the same language and currency.
“This latest addition of Cogetech to Playtech’s iPoker networks demonstrates that the company is capturing an ever more prominent position in the country, and is committed to expanding its presence in regulated European markets,” said Mor Wiezer, Playtech CEO. “We look forward to a long and productive partnership that will be mutually beneficial for both parties, and to providing new and exciting gaming opportunities for Italian players.”
Cogetech CEO Fabio Schiavolin added, “We chose Playtech over other providers because they are one of the leading players in global management platforms with a very strong and liquid poker netowkr, We look forward to working with them to provide all our customers with an exciting, reliable and continually evolving service which will provide the best possible play experience.”
