FanDuel partners with Playtech for Canadian live casino deal

October 25, 2023

Players in Ontario may access the new live casino studio, and the brands are optimistic that the partnership could extend to other provinces in future.

FanDuel and Playtech have signed a deal to provide new live casino content on FanDuel’s Canadian platform. Playtech has created a dedicated live casino studio solely for FanDuel Canada’s players.

The sports betting operator has been focused on expanding its online casino offerings with a ‘Winning is Undefeated’ campaign, as well, featuring a new Fort Knox Cleopatra slot. The FanDuel app was also the most-downloaded sports betting app during NFL Week 1.

Dale Hooper, GM for FanDuel Canada said, “We are proud to be announcing this deal with Playtech, which will bring our users across Canada a quality Live Casino experience. The addition of the FanDuel Live Casino studio has been specifically localised to cater for the Canadian market and FanDuel.  

“This unique proposition cements FanDuel’s position for online casino in the North American market. The agreement marks the beginning of what is sure to be a successful and exciting partnership.”

Currently, the studio will feature roulette, ‘all bets blackjack’, baccarat and 7-seater blackjack to Ontario players. This partnership is the first collaboration between Playtech and FanDuel, and will also grant the ability for the pair to offer the new live casino studio to other Canadian provinces once they regulate online casino gaming.

George Voyatzis, VP Commercial for Playtech said, “It’s brilliant to see Playtech Live continue its growth in North America. Our partnership with FanDuel marks a really exciting moment for Playtech, and we look forward to delivering our live casino games for FanDuel and its users across Ontario.

“As we build more studios globally and release new content, this announcement is yet another example of live taking over the gambling industry on a global scale.”
