Britain’s Playtech Plc has received a takeover bid from its second-biggest shareholder, Gopher Investments, the online gambling software developer said on Sunday.
The development comes weeks after Australian gambling machine maker Aristocrat Leisure made a 2.1 billion pound ($2.83 billion) offer to buy Playtech.
Playtech received a preliminary approach from Gopher on Oct. 21 seeking access to certain due diligence information, in order to explore terms on which a possible offer for all of the issued and to be issued share capital of Playtech might be made, according to the statement.
Hong Kong-based Gopher is weighing plans for a 3 billion pound takeover of the company and is being advised by Rothschild, according to Sky News which first reported the development.
“Discussions with Gopher are at an early stage and ongoing,” a statement from Playtech read. “As such, there can be no certainty that Gopher’s approach will result in an offer for the Company, nor as to the terms on which any offer might be made.”
Quixant Launches New Cabinet Offering
Quixant has announced the launch of Quantum and Qinetic, its new range of turnkey cabinets, which are tailored to the requirements and legislation of all global gaming markets and the sports betting industry.
The range of cabinets is powered by Quixant’s market-leading gaming hardware platforms and comes with a comprehensive suite of peripherals.
They are highly configurable and are available in a range of display and button deck configurations and can be tailored to meet each customer’s individual product and market requirements, with expert technical support from Quixant’s in-house cabinet design team.
Duncan Faithfull, EVP and CCO at Quixant, said: “We are renowned for providing powerful and reliable gaming hardware platforms and software solutions to the gaming industry, enabling our customers to focus on creating the best games and sports betting experiences on the planet.
“Speaking with our customers and the wider industry over recent months, it has become clear that sourcing and developing hardware solutions can be overly time consuming and costly and takes them away from developing content and enhancing the player experience – the thing that really differentiates their products.
“That’s why we developed Quantum and Qinetic, evolving from our range of market-leading platforms, to provide the industry with the powerful, reliable and game-changing outsourced cabinet solutions it requires.
“Like all of our products, they are developed with a deep, in-house understanding of the requirements and regulations of the gaming and sports betting world and are available via a variety of commercial models.
“With Quixant, you can get your cabinets to market faster and make them stand out from the crowd. We enable you to push what’s possible, adding the wow factor that doesn’t just stop customers in their tracks but keeps them coming back.
“While global component markets and their supply chains continue to be compromised, the team at Quixant is using all of its engineering expertise and supply chain knowledge to ensure we meet our customer’s product requirements.
“Launching our new cabinet range and enhancing Quixant.com and The Quixant Hub show our continued efforts to provide our customers the ultimate customer experience, so they can focus their efforts on developing game-changing content and the ultimate player experience.”
