Playtech has agreed a long-term deal to supply its Neon casino management system to manage Olympic Entertainment Group’s (OEG) international land-based casino operations, further cementing its position as the leading supplier of systems to the European casino industry.
The solution will connect more than 100 casinos in five countries, covering approximately 3,500 electronic gaming machines and more than 150 gaming tables.
OEG is a provider of gaming services in the Baltic States and operates casinos in Slovakia, Italy and Malta. Listed on the Tallinn Stock Exchange, the group has a total of 117 casinos and employs more than 3,000 employees in seven countries.
OEG already operates the Playtech Neon solution in many of its venues including its latest flagship casino, the Olympic Park Casino in Tallinn. This deal will see all legacy systems across the group replaced with Neon and the implementation of a suite of new enterprise systems, including the Neon Analytics business intelligence platform.
All user applications and the Neon Touch player user interface will be delivered as HTML5 applications, requiring no footprint in the casino and offering unprecedented flexibility for how users and players can interact with the system.
The Neon system will run from a data centre within each country and will be configured to suit the requirements of each jurisdiction, while the enterprise solutions will consolidate data from the group’s international and multi-channel operations.
Oleg Jurtšenko, chief information officer of Olympic Entertainment Group said: “We are looking forward to taking full advantage of Neon by operating the system across all of our international operations.
“We evaluated all the leading systems and selected Playtech because of their understanding of our requirements, modern architecture and willingness to adapt Neon to our needs.”
Martin Sykes, Managing Director, IGS, said: “We have worked closely with the Olympic team for many years and look forward to completing the roll out and activating Neon’s premium functionality.
“Olympic is one of the world’s most successful, innovative and professional operators and we are very proud to have been chosen as the group’s long-term strategic partner.”
The implementation is already underway and is expected for completion in 2018.
