Playtech, the world’s leading omni-channel gaming company, announced the extension and expansion of its long-term partnership with Fortuna Entertainment Group, the largest betting & gaming operator in Central and Eastern Europe.
The new agreement will see Playtech’s IMS player management platform become the core platform used by all FEG brands across the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Romania and Croatia.

This represents an expansion of Playtech’s initial contract with FEG, which was agreed in August 2016. After a successful two-year period focused on the Czech Republic and Romania, which was highlighted by FEG’s continued growth across regulated markets in Europe, this partnership has been expanded to cover all of its brands across all markets.

As part of the deal, Playtech’s partnership with FEG has also been extended for a further seven years.

Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “This is a significant agreement for Playtech and FEG. The extension and expansion of our partnership highlights both the success we’ve had, and the further growth we see ahead. This is a perfect example of how Playtech technology leads the way when it comes to enabling operator growth across regulated markets, and a further reflection of our role as the infrastructure of the industry.”

Per Widerstrom, Group CEO at Fortuna Entertainment Group, added: “When we first partnered with Playtech, we stated our aim was to become the leading betting and gaming operator in the CEE region. Having achieved this ambition, we will continue looking to grow and build our offer further in new and existing regulated markets. Our close partnership with Playtech will continue to be crucial in delivering on this strategy and delivering an industry leading omni-channel approach to our players.”

The agreement will see Playtech support the continued growth of FEG in both new and existing regulated markets. In 2017, FEG saw a 93% increase in total stakes to just over €2 billion, driven primarily by growth in online.
Playtech’s initial agreement with FEG was to supply it with a scalable, omni-channel platform and seamless wallet technology. As part of this partnership, in February last year Playtech became the first supplier to launch online casino in the Czech Republic with FEG.

Across retail and online Playtech’s IMS platform will now facilitate the integration of FEG’s sports betting offering in all territories, and more broadly its omni-channel strategy across retail and digital.

Bookmaker Fortuna has signed a deal with the Polish football club Stomil Olsztyn and become the official sponsor of the club. The contract will be valid at least until the end of the 2019/2020 season.

The joint marketing plans of Stomil and Fortuna assume activations directed to supporters and the presence of a bookmaker in the club’s social media channels.

“Involvement of the club and players in the struggle for survival of Stomil at the level of Fortuna 1st League in the spring round of the previous season made a huge impression on the whole football environment,” Leszek Haba, Member of the Board, Marketing Director of Fortuna Online Zakłady Bukmacherskie said.

“I am convinced that better days are coming for the Pride of Warmia, therefore, as Fortuna, we want to accompany the team from Olsztyn in the fight for higher and higher sporting and organizational goals. I hope that thanks to cooperation with Stomil we will strengthen our presence in the region, and the club, with our support, will soon refer to the times when, as an equal, it competed with the best teams in the country,” Leszek Haba added.

“We are very pleased that such a company recognized on the Polish market, which undoubtedly is Fortuna joined the group supporting the Club and together we will build #NowyStomil. I believe that this cooperation will bring benefits for both parties,” Robert Jurga, President of Stomil said.
