Playtech, a major market leader in the gambling and financial trading industry, will be extending its long-term collaboration with online gambling company Mansion for another five years and has entered a new online sports betting collaboration with Greek operator OPAP.

OPAP will be the first operator to use the PBS digital sportsbook offering as part of its Quantum roll out. PBS has said the new platform will help OPAP to tap into new opportunities in, as well as provide it with a toolkit to view and manage its sports betting operations.
PBS already provides software and services across OPAP’s retail network, as well as over the counterpoints of sale, as part of a deal agreed in 2017.
“The introduction of the PBS platform, across all of our retail betting outlets in Greece, has been a critical element in the improvement and growth of OPAP’s retail sports betting performance,” OPAP chief executive Damian Cope said. He also added to say that expanding the partnership with the adoption of the Quantum digital platform will be providing OPAP with a number of exciting new opportunities.
PBS chief executive Armin Sageder added: “The result of over two years of development, we have no doubt that Quantum Digital will prove to be a growth driver for OPAP throughout 2020 and beyond. We look forward to a continued successful relationship together for many years to come.”
