Playtech’s iPoker network has entered the Czech Republic, as the provider secured a partnership with omni-channel betting and gaming operator Fortuna Entertainment Group.

Through the agreement, poker has been introduced on Fortuna for the first time, giving its online players access to a variety of poker games and an international pool of players. 

Playtech is hopeful that the deal with Fortuna will build upon the pre-existing engagement with poker in the Czech Republic, as live poker tournaments are held in cities such as Prague and Rozvadov.

Myke Foster, Group Head of Gaming & Commercial Strategy at Fortuna Entertainment Group, commented: “Poker has a significant presence in the Czech market with an established player base and we are impressed by the quality of Playtech’s poker product. 

“We see tremendous potential in this product and are confident it will deliver an exceptional and modern user experience to our customer base. We have had a very successful partnership with Playtech over the years and we look forward to watching this partnership continue to grow from strength to strength.”

Playtech has been expanding across Europe throughout April, as the provider recently agreed to deals with LeoVegas and bet365.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Fortuna to expand our iPoker network into the Czech market,” added Marat Koss, VP of Interactive Gaming, Poker at Playtech.

“Playtech is committed to providing a high-quality player experience through its cutting-edge poker product and continuous innovation and together with Fortuna’s continued success and significant growth trajectory as the leading betting and gaming operator in Central and Eastern Europe, this partnership will offer a modern, seamless, and engaging user experience for Fortuna’s players.”
