GiG already offers its operator partners plenty of choices thanks to their robust ecosystem. However, it has now just added to its offerings with the addition of Playtech’s iPoker.
Playtech’s iPoker platform is enormous. Indeed, it has a network of more than 35,000 players. Plus, its network operates in most regulated markets, including the UK.
But now, GiG’s partner operators, such as Dunder, Rizk, and Cashmio, can enjoy the use of one of the best poker products available if they want to. They can do this all through using GiG’s platform. So, in other words, these casinos can enhance the appeal of their games catalog with minimal effort.
But time will only tell if they’ll take advantage of iPoker. After all, the beauty of GiG core is its modular approach. So operators can pick the product they want to offer to their players, casino, sportsbook, lottery, and now Poker.
The CCO of GiG, Ben Clemes, said that he’s “excited to have partnered with Playtech” using its iPoker product. He acknowledged that this deal means that they can give their casino partner, even more, betting options.
But it’s worth knowing that while Poker might be new on GiG Core. GiG’s team has a lot of experience in the field. Indeed, let’s not forget that poker enthusiasts initially set up the ecosystem. Which means the company was very capable of picking the best product that meets today’s expectation. But GiG knows that the online gambling industry is ever-changing. So they’ve also enhanced their core product to add further poker providers in the future should they ever need to.
The COO of Playtech, Shimon Akad, said that they are very happy to partner with GiG. GiG will surely be a welcome addition to their iPoker network.
Recently, Playtech has made a serious investment in its new web poker client as well as their native poker app and downloadable desktop poker client. Without a doubt, partnering with GiG is a huge move for the company, and this should work well for both players.
Online Poker is growing in popularity again. And against all the odds. In fact, many operators saw Poker as a dying vertical not long ago. But as time changes so do players preferences. And GiG is ready to tackle these different times with the best of the best.
