Following the signing of the industry-wide shared liquidity agreement in France, Spain, Italy and Portugal last year, the introduction of the first B2B Poker network from the moment underlines Playtech’s ongoing strength in regulated markets.
Playtech’s chief operating officer, in turn, argues that the distribution of liquidity in France and Spain, which are the main European markets, represents incomparable opportunities for the industry. Shimon Acad considers this a step forward for both the company itself, operators and players. At the same time, cooperation with all the above-mentioned partners further emphasizes newly discovered opportunities, and also provides encouraging signs for the future direction of the network. This will significantly strengthen Playtech’s leadership position in the market.
The shared liquidity agreement will also allow other operators to join the network in the future, which includes potential for further activities in Portugal and Italy, offering outstanding opportunities to attract more players.
