Gaming technology provider Playtech has signed a landmark deal with Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel to launch branded Live Casino content in Canada.

Marking the first collaboration between Playtech and FanDuel, the London-listed supplier has built a dedicated Live Casino studio to serve FanDuel Canada. 

Based in Riga, Latvia, the studio has been designed to meet the specific needs of the Canadian market and FanDuel's customers in Ontario, offering Roulette, All Bets Blackjack, Baccarat and 7-Seater Blackjack.

The agreement also includes the provision of the Live Casino studio to other provinces across Canada, if and when they regulate.

“It’s brilliant to see Playtech Live continue its growth in North America,” said Playtech vice president of commercial George Voyatzis. “Our partnership with FanDuel marks a really exciting moment for Playtech, and we look forward to delivering our Live Casino games for FanDuel and its users across Ontario.

“As we build more studios globally and release new content, this announcement is yet another example of Live taking over the gambling industry on a global scale.”

FanDuel Canada general manager Dale Hooper commented: “We are proud to be announcing this deal with Playtech, which will bring our users across Canada the highest quality Live Casino experience. The addition of the innovative FanDuel Live Casino studio has been specifically localised to cater for the Canadian market and FanDuel.  

“This unique proposition cements FanDuel’s premium position for online casino in the North American market. The agreement marks the beginning of what is sure to be a successful and exciting partnership with one of the world’s largest game providers.”
