Saturday November 30,2013 : PLAYTECH EXIT FROM SOME EUROPEAN MARKETS NOT UNIVERSAL
Departure from Netherlands, Finland and Canadian markets impacts only EuroPartners operations.
More clarity is now available on the reported exit of Playtech plc from the online gambling markets of Finland, the Netherlands and Canada, the subject of intense speculation in affiliate and player circles for the past few weeks.
The departure from these markets is by no means universal, and a number of Playtech-powered operators will continue to offer services.
However, Playtech's own affiliate management program, EuroPartners, is moving out and has advised affiliates and players at major online venues like Titan and Mansion accordingly.
The decision appears to be motivated by a desire to comply with legal and political developments as Playtech continues to pursue a corporate strategy of aligning itself with national regulated jurisdictions.
