London-listed gaming software provider Playtech has completed its largest ever migration of dedicated live casino rooms to its new studio in Latvia, and began the roll out of new betting services for Greek operator Opap.

The first dedicated live dealer room was completed earlier this year with Sky Casino migrating its operation to the new Riga site and switching on its re-developed offering in April.

Since then, Playtech's remaining licensees with dedicated offerings have all migrated, including the likes of bet365, Coral, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power Betfair. Each dedicated offering had been redeveloped and redesigned in line with each licensees' specific requirements.

"Playtech demonstrates its absolute commitment to delivering the best live casino experience and this project is significant testimony to it," said Playtech's chief operating officer Shimon Akad. "From making one of our largest ever investments and redeveloping this site into the world’s largest live casino studio, to completing the largest live customer migration ever seen, it's been an exhilarating, non-stop journey and there is much more to come.

"Getting to this stage so quickly and without any issues is due to the enormous dedication of the team."

In related news, Playtech has also began the roll out of self-service betting terminals (SSBTs) for Greece's Opap, with all over-the-counter (OTC) activity to be migrated to the Playtech BGT Sports (PBS) platform across 4,500 locations.

Through an agreement signed earlier this year, PBS will be supplying software and services for a combination of full-sized SSBTs, as well as the recently launched compact SSBTs. In total, several thousand SSBTs will be rolled out in the next 12 months.

The introduction of the new OTC solution, complete with a substantial in-play offering, has been specifically developed for the Greek market and is planned in the coming months. PBS will provide a fully-managed service to Opap, including trading and more than 25,000 in-play markets.

"The agreement with OPAP is a milestone for Playtech BGT Sports and we are proud to be supplying such an important lottery supplier with our solutions," said Armin Sageder, CEO of Playtech BGT Sports. "There are multiple opportunities to further develop our relationship as OPAP looks to enhance its digital retail offering and we believe today’s agreement marks the start of a long and successful relationship."

Shares in Playtech plc (Co. Data) (LSE:PTEC) were trading down 2.38 per cent at 900.50 pence per share in London earlier Thursday.
