Playtech, the world’s leading gaming technology provider, announced today the beginning of a new dedicated Live Casino studio in Zurich, Switzerland. 

The venue, which was created at the former Swiss Casinos in Zürich, is being hailed as “the first of its sort in Switzerland and the second in Europe.”

The new Live Casino studio is located on the Swiss Casinos’ current Zurich premises and is the first in Switzerland and the second in Europe. Swiss Casinos, which owns four of the country’s mainland-based casinos, collaborated with Playtech in 2019 to debut the company’s Casino and Live Casino offerings in Switzerland, followed by the introduction of the Playtech iPoker network in 2020. This next phase of the relationship capitalizes on Playtech’s strong B2B strategy for expanding newly regulated regions.

The Live Casino studio was developed in close collaboration with numerous departments and further the two organizations’ close relationship. As a result, the state-of-the-art studio provides Swiss players with direct access to Playtech Live tables via the casino website, including Live Roulette, classic 7 Seat Blackjack, and All Bets’ scalable Blackjack variant. All tables are hosted by fully qualified, native-speaking dealers, offering the most excellent possible experience for Swiss casino’ players.

Swiss Casinos operates exclusively in Switzerland, with locations in Pfäffikon, St. Gallen, Schaffhausen, Zurich, and the online casino and the Zurich GEORGE Bar & Grill. Swiss Casinos’ numerous casinos combined to produce gross gaming revenue of CHF 149.4 million in 2020. CHF 66.6 million was paid in casino tax, which benefited both OASI funds and cantons directly.

Their associate, Playtech, Playtech, founded in 1999 and currently listed on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market, is a market leader in the gaming and financial trading industries, employing around 6,400 people in 24 countries.
