Gaming operator Playtech, based in London, currently offers live casino services in Switzerland. They struck a partnership deal with the Swiss Casino Group, benefiting both parties and players. Considering that the Swiss gambling law does not allow unauthorized international iGaming companies, this partnership is a significant breakthrough in the world of legalized gambling. Swiss Casinos Group is Switzerland’s leading gambling company in the land-based casino sector. Among other casinos, SCG is running the famous and one of the largest brick-and-mortar casinos in Switzerland – Casino Zurich.
The Playtech COO, Shimon Akad, said that the partnership with the Swiss Casinos Group is the right step for the company to popularize Playtech software providers on the Swiss market. SCG has a high reputation in Switzerland, which raises the already high importance of Playtech in the gambling sector. Besides that, Playtech is keen to expand its services in new countries and regulated gambling markets, with Switzerland being one of them. Playtech has already rolled out various casino and live casino games and products to Swiss online players that visit SCG premises. Playtech is also the first software giant to offer progressive jackpot games and live casino games to players in Switzerland.
Top-Notch Gaming Technologies
Playtech, the world’s leading iGaming provider, has launched spectacular new slot games that reward players with unique gambling experiences, excellent features and bonuses through Omni-channel play. Players can access this technology from anywhere and on any device. Even better, players only need a single account to access all of Playtech’s content.
Additionally, Playtech’s game portfolio is powered by the data-driven business intelligence technology company Playtech IMS. That means that the Swiss Casino Group now offers leading premium casino games in the industry for its Swiss players.
Gambling Scene in Switzerland
In 2019, Switzerland changed its gambling law, giving Swiss land-based casinos the right to offer online gambling. Before this amendment, Swiss gaming law was mildly obscure, allowing unauthorized access to international gambling operators who offered their gaming services to Swiss players.
The legislation revision effectively ended such access, so now, only the licensed and legal brick-and-mortar casinos can provide their gaming services to Swiss people in partnership with international operators like Playtech. No global operator can offer standalone services to Swiss citizens, which is the downside of this gambling law amendment.
