Playtech extends Fortuna CZ partnership with Native Casino apps

27 July 2020

Playtech, the world’s leading gambling technology company, has extended its partnership with Fortuna in the Czech Republic, launching end-user versions of its native casino app, enhancing the Fortuna offering with an ever-wider range of slots.

Playtech’s native app is fully customisable, including the option to add extra sections and promotions to the home screen, and offers support for 24 languages and a wide range of regulatory environments, with more being added. The launch of the Fortuna-branded version of the app, available for both Android and iOS, expands the omnichannel solution developed by Playtech for Fortuna’s Czech business earlier this year.

The app significantly increases the number of casino games available to Fortuna CZ players, including popular slots such as Buffalo Blitz, White King and Ways of the Phoenix, plus a range of roulette and blackjack games. The all-native offering of both lobby and games prevents any hosting issues that can occur with wrapper-based products.

Commenting on the launch, Anton Golikov, program manager at Playtech, said: “We’ve worked in close collaboration with the Fortuna CZ team to deliver bespoke versions of our native casino app to a robust timescale, and are delighted to be supporting the expansion of the brand’s casino games portfolio. Removing the hosting obstacles that can come with wrapper-based games creates a flexibility that will allow Fortuna to continue to build on its game selection and enhance player experience. We look forward to continuing our collaboration on the upcoming approved projects.”

David Vozábal, group head of product development at Fortuna, said: “We’ve been delighted with both the fast progress on the Native casino app project and the end result, which, as well as tackling potential technical restraints, opens up a true native experience for our players. We look forward to continuing to build on an excellent working relationship with Playtech.”

James Frendo, director of casino at Playtech, said: “Since introducing our omnichannel solution to Fortuna in its core Czech market earlier this year, our partnership has gone from strength to strength. We’re very pleased to have the native casino app in place so quickly to seamlessly deliver such a wide range of casino games and look forward to building on our relationship with Fortuna as a key strategic partner in the region.”
