Playtech has signed a three-year agreement with win2day

Playtech has reaped the benefits of updating its poker platform after signing a three-year deal to power Austria’s regulated online poker network.

Under the terms of the deal with win2day, the Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria-owned operator, Playtech will provide ongoing software and technical support when the supply agreement begins in March.

Playtech has recently invested significant resources in refreshing its iPoker client, including a new lobby and home tab, an overhaul of the software’s poker tables and a series of new game views, enabling a more personalised experience.

Joerg Nottebaum, Playtech’s head of iPoker, said: “Working in regulated and newly regulating markets with the largest and leading operators is one of Playtech’s core strengths. We’re delighted to have agreed terms with win2day and look forward to developing not only the country’s first, but also best-performing poker network and products.”

Playtech already supplies its poker platform to Coral and Bet365, and believes that its new features will attract further operators.

A Playtech spokesman added: “The client offers quicker and easier access to players’ favourite games via a new home lobby tab and quick seat function.

“The new software’s personalisation capabilities allow it to remember the games you have previously played. These are then automatically adding to the game selection in your home screen giving you rapid access to your favourites without having to browse through a long table list.”
