Ladbrokes to sign with Playtech

It was announced yesterday that successful British online casino Ladbrokes is to sign with casino games software giant Playtech.

The deal could come as soon as next week, said representatives from the casino.

The casino, which is England’s second largest bookmaker at last count, will be the second major online UK casino signed to Playtech since the famous sign-up (and last week’s parting) of William Hill casino.

If so, the merger will coincide with Playtech’s release of their figures for the past year – expected to be impressive after the recent $600 million buyout amount William Hill paid to Playtech.
