OEG has selected the Neon system to connect more than 100 casinos

FTSE-listed gambling technology provider Playtech Plc has announced one of its biggest casino system upgrades with Eastern European gambling group Olympic Entertainment (OEG).

Upgrading to IGS Neon solutions, Olympic Entertainment has asked the Playtech to deliver a group wide integration of its casino management systems across its Baltic (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and European (Slovakia, Italy and Malta) premises.

The project will require Playtech Neon to “connect more than 100 casinos in five countries, covering approximately 3,500 electronic gaming machines combined with 150 gaming tables”.

Playtech has a prior relationship with Olympic Entertainment, having successfully integrated Neon systems for the gambling group’s Olympic Park Tallinn Casino (Estonia).

“We have worked closely with the Olympic team for many years and look forward to completing the rollout and activating Neon’s premium functionality,” said Martin Sykes, Managing Director of Playtech IGS. “Olympic is one of the world’s most successful, innovative and professional operators and we are very proud to have been chosen as the group’s long-term strategic partner.”

Detailing its upcoming project, Playtech IGS states that Olympic Entertainment will gain a HTML 5 applications-based system that will deliver its operations unprecedented flexibility with regards to monitoring players throughout its multiple premises.

Oleg Jurtšenko, Chief Information Officer of OEG, said: “We are looking forward to taking full advantage of Neon by operating the system across all of our international operations.

“We evaluated all the leading systems and selected Playtech because of their understanding of our requirements, modern architecture and willingness to adapt Neon to our needs.”

TG Says: Playtech continues to expand its Tier 1 partnerships with regulated market legacy operators. A core strategy outlined by CEO Mor Weizer during ICE 2018.
