Playtech and FanDuel Team Up for Canadian Expansion

The world’s leading online gambling and Live Casino content provider, Playtech, will launch its Live Dealers portfolio with FanDuel in Canada, according to a press release from two days ago, on the 25th of October, 2023. This landmark deal will see the premier online gambling company in North America launch Playtech’s Live Casino content on its Canadian platform.

The newly signed deal is significant for both companies, as with it, the developer continues its expansion across North America with its Live Casino content, and the operator cements its position as a leading provider of online casino experiences and boosts its Live Casino offering.

Playtech has already built and prepared a new dedicated Live Casino studio to serve only FanDuel Canada as part of the deal. This studio was designed to meet the specific needs of the market and is based in Lativa, to provide players at the site with top-notch Live Casino games in Ontario, like 7-Seater Blackjack, Baccarat, All Bets Blackjack, and Roulette.

The deal extends the provision of the Live Casino studio to other Canadian provinces when and if they regulate, keeping its flex for future expansion across North America, following recent studios built for Big Bad Wolf and Adventures Beyond Wonderland for the market.

This is the first agreement between the developer and the operator, as both showed their desire to expand to markets with newly introduced regulation and cement their global footprint.

Statements by the Two Partners

Playtech‘s VP of Commercial George Voyatzis said that it was brilliant to see the studio continue its growth in North America. Voyatzis said that their new partnership marked a really thrilling moment for the studio and they all looked forward to delivering their Live Casino titles for the operator and its players in Ontario. Finally, he said, as they built more studios globally and released new titles, the announcement was yet another example of Playtech Live’s portfolio taking over the gambling industry on a global level.

FanDuel Canada’s General Manager Dale Hooper said that they were beyond proud to have announced the landmark deal with the developer, which would offer their players across Canada Live Casino experiences of the highest quality. Hooper said that the innovative studio was designed and localized to cater to Fan Duel on the Canadian market, and the deal solidified the operator’s premium position for online casino in the North American market. Hooper closed his statement by saying that the deal marked the beginning of what was sure to become an exciting and successful partnership with one of the world’s leading game providers.
