Playtech launches casino and poker content with Enlabs

4 August 2020

Industry giant Playtech has rolled out a range of online casino content and its poker technology with Baltic-facing operator Enlabs.

Under the agreement, Enlabs’ Optibet.lv and BestPoker.com brands now have access to Playtech’s online casino and poker offerings.

The roll-out sees Playtech enter the Latvian poker market for the first time.

In terms of casino content, Enlabs has access to Playtech’s range of branded titles such as Justice League and the Sporting Legends Suite.

“Playtech’s scale and innovation are powerful tools when looking to deliver the best player experience in growing and established markets alike,” Enlabs’ head of poker Maksims Gorbacs said. “We look forward to developing this partnership further as we continue to grow our content offering.”

Playtech’s head of poker Marat Koss added: “The poker market is facing undeniable challenges, but at Playtech, we’re continuing to invest in expanding and evolving our software and network to address the future head-on.

“We are joining forces with a very professional and experienced poker team led by Maksims Gorbacs and I have no doubt that this partnership will be fruitful and productive.”

The new deal comes after Enlabs last month revealed that it remained profitable in the second quarter despite revenue falling by a third and the temporary closure of Latvia's gambling market as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

In a trading update for the three months to 30 June, Enlabs said total sales amounted to an estimated €6m, which was down from €9m in the same period in 2019.
