Holland Casino to Offer Playtech Live Dealer Games
Punters in the Netherlands are going to be getting regulated online gaming starting in October, and the country’s largest land casino brand will be partnering with Playtech to provide those games, including a variety of blackjack titles.
The two groups announced this week that they’re partnering to see table games, slot machines, poker, bingo, and sportsbetting services powered by Playtech. The software developer will manage the online systems for Holland Casino, and they’ll also be deploying a live dealer blackjack studio near one of the existing Holland Casino locations.
Holland Casino CEO Erwin van Lambaart commented on the agreement, saying: “This agreement will provide the technology and expertise required to ensure we will deliver the leading online offering in the Netherlands. Holland Casino has high ambitions for the new online market and at the same time we are determined to play a leading role when it comes to Responsible Gaming and Player Protection. Playtech has the track record and necessary scale to deliver industry-leading software, marketing, and responsible gambling tools to the number one brand in the Netherlands.
“We look forward to the online market launching in the Netherlands in October 2021 and to a long and successful cooperation with Playtech as we work together to capture this exciting opportunity.”
Playtech’s CEO Mor Weizer added: “We are delighted to announce this strategic cooperation with Holland Casino. The brand strength and local presence of Holland Casino combined with Playtech’s 20 years of technology leadership in the industry will see us drive the online growth of the market in Holland.
“We look forward to working with Holland Casino to offer the highest quality, most comprehensive responsible gambling entertainment experience across retail and online in the Dutch market.”
The Netherlands gaming regulator KSA began accepting gaming license applications for online betting on April 1st and has already noted that there are 28 submissions. The regulator will be granting licenses this summer, with operations slated to go online beginning on October 1st.
