Playtech’s Chief Executive Officer Mor Weizer noted that record figures were a result of their varied product assortment for both business verticals in progressive legal markets worldwide. Having started in the United States, the company expanded its offering to many other promising countries.

Revenues for the European region, except for Great Britain, increased by 5%, reaching €96.6 million. However, profits from the Dutch market were reduced because of fiercer competition and strict regulations.
