Playtech Completes Migration to New State-of-the-Art Studio
Playtech is one of the world’s leading gambling software companies, and they have recently announced that they have completed the “industry’s largest migration” of live casino rooms to a brand new “next-generation” studio located in Riga Latvia.
The new site has an 8,500 square capacity. The new location for the live casino operations sits at the top of a massive 16-story building right in the middle of Riga Old Town; this was one of Playtech’s largest corporate initiatives for the year.
The project began all the way back in the Spring of 2016. This new studio is said to be state-of-the-art, enabling the company to take their live casino services to the next level. They will also be able to increase their gaming portfolio through the innovation of new games at their new location. Their tier 1 clients are incredibly excited for Playtech’s new facility.
The hardest part of this project was maintaining their level of operations while also converting all of their activities over to an entirely new space. Playtech’s staffing made an incredibly meticulous plan of action to ensure the company took no time off during the process. The project involved multiple phases over the year and few months it took to complete.
The first room opened in the very beginning of 2017. Sky Casino was the first to migrate to the new location. Coral, bet365, Paddy Power-Betfair, and Ladbrokes all made the switch shortly after among many other licensees. They were all entirely operational in the new location after only 12 weeks.
The COO of Playtech, Mr. Shimon Akad commented on the exciting new venture saying, “Playtech demonstrates its absolute commitment to delivering the best Live Casino experience and this project is a significant testimony to it. From making one of our largest ever investments and redeveloping this site into the world’s biggest Live Casino studio, to completing the largest Live customer migration ever seen, it’s been an exhilarating, non-stop journey and there is much more to come.”
Licensees have already noticed a massive increase in player numbers since the switch. Customers seem to love their brand new live casino experiences. Playtech and all of its licensees are excited for the continuing growth that this new location offers. They hope to see operations flourish and profits rise as they continue to work in this new studio.
