Playtech Partners With MGM Resorts International For Live Casino

Playtech, the leading gambling software development company in the iGaming industry, announced a new strategic partnership with MGM Resorts International to provide proprietary, live casino content directly from the gaming floor at two of their resorts on the Las Vegas Strip.

Playtech will offer players on-demand, online access to live casino content from Bellagio and MGM Grand

In fact, this partnership is expected to improve the online casino experience for gamblers. Playtech, the technology partner of MGM Resorts, will be providing players with on-demand, online access to immersive entertainment experiences directly from Bellagio and MGM Grand.

Live casino content, branded as “MGM Live,” will be licensed to operators for end-user play in international regulated markets. The live casino offering will include single and double-zero roulette and baccarat games. The casino games will be streamed live from the casino floors at both MGM Grand and Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

According to the press release, the plan is to broaden the portfolio with “exclusive access to a variety of Playtech games, branded TV game shows, celebrity-hosted trivia shows, and the one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for which Las Vegas and MGM are known.”

Additionally, the live casino offering will allow online players to simultaneously participate in the same game as players at the physical game table on the casino floor.

Future phases of the partnership will expand our offering to include access to several proprietary Playtech games as well as exclusive branded TV game shows, celebrity-hosted trivia shows, and immersive entertainment experiences.

The alliance combines the strength of MGM Resorts’ global prestige with Playtech’s international market expertise

Furthermore, MGM Resorts CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle said:

“The launch of this new and exciting live casino offering, in partnership with Playtech and directly from Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, furthers our strategic vision to be the world’s premier gaming entertainment company.

“This collaboration amplifies our commitment to providing unparalleled experiences and expands our global reach to our customers. We believe the content, celebrity talent and sophisticated gaming experience that we will offer – all from the trusted and highly reputable brands of MGM Resorts – will be unmatched in the industry.”

Playtech CEO Mor Weizer added:

“We are thrilled to partner with MGM Resorts, a world-renowned gaming and entertainment brand. This alliance combines the strength of MGM Resorts’ global prestige with Playtech’s extensive international market knowledge and innovative games.

“As a leading technology provider in regulated markets, we are delighted that this partnership is pioneering a new live entertainment category and product offering for players in these regulated territories.”

Both brands look forward to working with operators to support and promote a safe gambling experience.
