Playtech has secured a contact to power Portugal’s leading online operator, Sociedade de Apostas Sociais.
Playtech will supply its IMS player management platform and new sportsbook offering to the operator.
The new Sociedade de Apostas Sociais sportsbook is planned to go online shortly and it will deploy Playtech’s online and mobile sports betting platform.
“New and emerging regulated markets are a key part of our growth strategy. Portugal is a significant territory in that growth plan, therefore we are delighted to have agreed terms with SAS and to be integrating two core elements of the Playtech offering beginning with IMS and sportsbook,” Shimon Akad, chief operating officer of Playtech, said.
“This market has great potential and we’re excited to be at the forefront of gaming innovation and growth in Portugal.”
Sociedade de Apostas Sociais is one of the first operators to provide such a wide range of iGaming products following the country regulating gaming and betting 18 months ago.
Dr Armin Sageder, chief executive of PBS, said: “This is a great milestone for PBS and shows the capabilities we have within Playtech as a powerful partner. We are dedicated to delivering and passionate about exceeding our partners’ expectations.”
