Online gaming software provider Playtech joined the Gambling Business Group (GBG) – a new organisation focused on online gambling.

A two month old organisation, the GBG aims to improve the gambling business for its members, deal with governemt issues, help organise the political agenda and protect the future of industry and their employees.

Since July the GBG has already attracted more than 50 companies. The organisation is operated on the base of subscription and its members are rated according to the annual turnover.

According to Peter Hannibal, chief executive officer of the GBG the fact that Playtech signed up to the GBG shows the impotrant role fulfilled by the new organisation.

Peter Hannibal, GBG’s CEO:

“When we launched in July we confirmed that our key objective was to provide a strategic voice for gaming in a way in which individual trade associations are unable to, due to their understandably narrow remit.

Playtech, which has a breadth of interests including online operators upgrading or diversifying their offering, land-based casino groups, government sponsored entities such as lotteries, new entrants making their online gaming debut and the global VLT market, is a case in point.

Our ability to engage with government and regulators on behalf of gaming per se as opposed to just one facet of gaming is an important and unique distinction and one the industry is increasingly receptive to.”
