Pragmatic teams-up with Stake to construct dedicated live studio


Pragmatic Play aims to erect a “purpose-built” dedicated studio via its signage with sports betting and online casino operator Stake

The partnership between the two companies will see the supplier construct a 12-table studio replete with Stake branding, whilst also including 10 blackjack tables, one specifically for roulette, and speed baccarat. 

“Stake is a major emerging force in the igaming landscape, growing markedly since its launch in 2017 to swiftly become a global name,” noted Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play. 

“We’re very pleased they’ve partnered with us to create a dedicated live casino studio, and we are excited by the opportunity to deliver an environment worthy of the Stake brand.”

The deal follows similar agreements with Kindred, 1xbet, 888 and Mansion to deliver dedicated live dealer studios.  

Stake Co-Founder, Edward Craven, added: “As a leading supplier in the live casino space, Pragmatic Play’s commitment to ensuring our every need is met was a key element in powering this deal. 

“Its dedicated studios have performed well with major brands in regulated markets all over the world, and this is an important step forward for us. 

“We look forward to it going live and really highlighting the unique capabilities of our brand.”

The deal sees Pragmatic kick-start the month of May off the back of a busy April, with the firm recently rounding off the Easter season with an extension to its ongoing partnership with Latin American operator Estelarbet

This saw the firm add the supplier’s bingo vertical, after previously welcoming Pragmatic Play’s slots, live casino and virtual sports products upon inking an initial commercial tie-up in April 2021.
