Two Exciting New Industry Deals Signed 

Last week it was announced that gaming giant Playtech has purchased BetBuddy, a responsible gaming software company. The value of the purchase was not revealed but this deal could have immense benefits for Playtech. BetBuddy is an analytics group. They make use of their custom software to do behaviour analysis on casino platforms. These analytics help to spot problem gambling behaviour from players. This software will then discreetly inform the operator about any potential issues.

From all accounts it seems almost certain that Playtech will be integrating BetBuddy software directly into its IMS player management software. While BetBuddy is only 5 years old, they have managed to work with top industry players in order to finely craft their analytics software to quickly become invaluable for responsible gambling enforcement.

Playtech trailed the software earlier this year and were so impressed that they started bidding for the company. Having BetBuddy integrated into your casino platform software is an incredible edge that very few providers can claim. BetBuddy integration will give Playtech considerable leverage in regulated markets.

Fredrik Elmqvist , CEO of Yggdrasil said in a statement that this opens up the company to a new bred of fast growing operators who take an innovative and progressive approach to their company and customers.
