Playtech Opens Live Casino in Riga, Latvia


8,500 square meters to cater for existing and future demand.

Due to a “huge surge in client demand”, Playtech has announced the opening of a new live casino studio in Riga, Latvia.

The 8,500 square meter studio has been built on top of the city’s fortified 16th century walls in the heart of Riga Old Town and features unrivaled, state-of-the-art technology, the company said.

“Every inch of the new operation has been conceptualized, designed and delivered with a future-first approach with all Playtech Live common and Live dedicated licensee areas remodeled to accommodate the latest software and hardware presenting players with the ultimate, never-before-seen gaming experience”.

The new studio, while complementing existing studios in Philippines, Spain, Belgium and Romania, will reportedly cater for the majority of Playtech’s European live casino footprint.

“This has been a huge undertaking but, more importantly, is a huge step forwards in live casino and one no other company except Playtech is capable of making,” said Mor Weizer, chief executive officer of Playtech.

“This now gives us the platform to deliver the next generation of live casino to our customers, and will also give us the flexibility and ability to deliver many new and innovative products.”
