Tuesday January 5,2016 : PLAYTECH AND NETBET SIGN SIX YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION
Agreement comes after player strikes gold to claim Euro 4 million jackpot.
According to a presser from Playtech plc, a regular NetBet customer has struck it lucky by winning the progressive jackpot of Euro 4 million on Playtech favourite Gold Rally, just days after the long-term licensee agreed a six-year contract extension until 2021.
The mega jackpot was won just before Christmas by a regular NetBet player who has chosen to remain anonymous and comes just six months after NetBet launched its exclusive Playtech Vegas tab.
It is also the first time a NetBet player has claimed the top prize on the Playtech progressive network.
