NetBet and Playtech sign new contract

Gaming operator NetBet has signed a 6 year contract extension with technology and solutions provider Playtech, with the new deal including exclusive Playtech Casino content, poker and poker side games. The contract extension, which runs until 2021, follows a NetBet player winning €4m on a progressive jackpot on Playtech’s Gold Rally game last month.

This comes just six months after NetBet launched its exclusive Playtech Vegas tab, and marks the first time that one of NetBet’s players has claimed the top prize on the Playtech progressive network.

“We’re delighted to be continuing our excellent relationship with NetBet, one of our most established partners and, that just days after signing the agreement, one of their players struck gold on one of our biggest progressive games,” said Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad.

The new contract includes exclusive Playtech casino content, poker and poker side games and will see the partnership between the two companies extend to more than two decades.

Alexandre Mangaud, NetBet’s marketing manager, said: “We’re delighted both with the agreement and for our winning jackpot player. It’s a massive win for us with the contract extension already reaping huge rewards.”

Sponsors of Premier League football club West Bromwich Albion and French Ligue 1 football clubs Saint Etienne and Ajaccio, NetBet is officially licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and currently offers players more than 400 different games.
