Playtech adds fourth licensee to Italian poker network

Playtech has signed up Italian online and land-based operator Cogetech to its Italian ipoker network.

Cogetech, which provides sports betting white label solutions to several industry-leading Italian and global operators, is the fourth operator to have joined Playtech’s newly launched Italian network in recent weeks, following the deals signed with Snai, Sisal and Gala Coral’s Eurobet.

The poker client is now available in play-for-fun mode, with a real-money version planned for launch later this year. Playtech has tailored its product to specifically appeal to the Italian market and to comply with all Italian regulatory standards.

Playtech’s chief executive Mor Weizer said the deal demonstrated how the company was increasing its profile in the Italian market and also its commitment to expanding its presence in regulated European markets. “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,” he added.

Fabio Schiavolin, Cogetech’s chief executive, commented: “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 network.”
