Playson has reaffirmed that European expansion remains “an important and strategic target” after the igaming developer partnered with MerkurXtip to grow in the Czech Republic.

Under the terms of the agreement, the former will integrate its collection of online casino titles with MerkurXtip’s new digital platform, which will now gain games such as Legend of Cleopatra, Sevens & Fruits: 20 Lines and Book of Gold: Classic.

The latest deal sees Playson enhance its presence in the regulated Czech market, and follows hot on the heels on the supplier securing a North American uplift after securing an online gaming licence in Ontario.

Jan Dobiáš, Head of MerkurXtip in Czech Republic, said: “We’re thrilled to have reached a content integration agreement with one of the industry’s most exciting casino games suppliers.

“Our Czech Republican platform just launched and having Playson on board ensures that our product offering is outstanding from day one.”

The Gauselmann owned and operated MarkerXtip, which debuted its Czech facing offering last month, currently offers slots but has voiced an ambition of expanding to offer roulette, sports, poker and sports betting.

“We’re delighted to have reached another deal that sees us develop in one of the industry’s fastest growing markets,” added Blanka Homor, Sales Director at Playson.

“Expanding in central Europe is an important and strategic target for us, we are hoping to reach more agreements with regulated operators across the area.”
