Playtech, the international designer, developer, licensor and provider of software and services for the online, mobile, TV and land‐based gaming industry, has launched its mobile casino solution for established online gaming operator Betfred.

Playtech's offering will include a selection of 20 table and slot games including several popular branded slots, giving players access to their favorite Playtech content on‐the‐go.

"We are thrilled to introduce Playtech's mobile casino to Betfred, as they are an important operator in the mobile arena,” said Shay Segev, Playtech COO. “With the investment and effort they continue to put into expanding and promoting this platform, we see Betfred as a great partner in advancing our reach on mobile.”

The launch with Betfred is just the first step toward a rich mobile offering set to be released next year. Having recently developed its Mobile Hub, Playtech has revolutionized its delivery to mobile devices, making it easier for operators to centralize and customize their entire mobile offering. Following the casino app, Betfred will introduce bingo and live dealer games, bringing its players multiple products via one user interface on their mobile devices.

"This is a very exciting launch for us that fits perfectly in line with our overall strategy to boost mobile activity,” said Chris Sheffield, managing director of Betfred.com. “We are confident that with Playtech's proven products combined with our strong focus on the platform, we will be able to generate significant traffic to mobile from both existing and new players.
