GiG (Gaming Innovation Group) has disclosed details about its integration with award-winning poker platform run by Playtech, the iPoker Network. The decision to merge with Playtech marks a crucial step for GiG since this serves as the company’s first advance to the online poker ecosystem in a network that boasts of over 35,000 players in the poker segment space alone.
Earlier, the Swedish iGaming vertical, Enlabs AB, also decided to move to Playtech’s iPoker from GiG Network, showing the growing popularity of the network as well as its wide reach.
Playtech’s iPoker network offers the majority of its products across regulated markets all over the world. Going forward, all GiG partners will have access to the impressive range of poker games on the platform, including 6-Plus Hold’em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Sit and Go’s, and the revered Texas Hold’em.
One of the biggest perks of the iPoker Network other than the vast collection of games is the fact that it runs smoothly across all devices thanks to its HTML5 software architecture fused with Playtech’s superior-tech capabilities. This means that it’s iOS and Android clients can freely access the network. GiG has also included its proprietary handy work to the poker platform, improving it with microservices options so that it can deliver a more scalable, richer, and flexible product to its partners.
Both Playtech and GiG top brass have described their current contract as a great success with a promising future. Ben Clemes, the GiG CCO, is glad that the integration to Playtech’s network will tremendously expand their current options for GiG’s network partners, helping to boost the player experience. Likewise, Shimon Akad, the Playtech COO, expressed his fervor after teaming up with GiG, indicating that Playtech has heavily invested in developing a platform that not only runs on the internet but is also available as a dedicated native poker app and a downloadable client.
