There are six side bets that have been included in their latest three additions Lucky Lucky, Top 3 and Buster Blackjack (paying up to x2000). They have added a fresh look to the game.
The new Soho Baccarat Live table features Egalite side bet, that pays out up to x220. An unlimited number of players can take a seat at it. This is the case with all Playtech Baccarat tables.
Also, another live roulette game Quantum Slingshot is based around Multipliers. In each round, up to five numbers are chosen and awarded with a Multiplier up to x500 each spin.
Speaking of roulette, Playtech has launched three new Live Roulette offerings in the regulated Spanish iGaming market last month. The hosts are 24/7 by native Spanish-speaking dealers. They are available via GVC’s PartyCasino, PartyPoker and Bwin brands.
The Updates on the Coronavirus
Recently, Playtech PLC announced the closure of all its Snaitech branches in Italy. The company stopped all its activities in the country due to the government’s orders relating to coronavirus.
Not long after, Playtech PLC provided an update on the impact of COVID-19.
“Playtech is working to protect its cash flow by pro-actively managing its capital expenditure and working capital,” the statement read.
Additionally, they will “identify opportunities for cost savings that will not impact the long-term success of the Company,” they noted.
Playtech’s Casino business (including Live) has seen limited impact at this point. Though the company is “continually monitoring the situation.”
Since Live Casino requires a significant number of employees working in the same location it can be disrupted. Playtech’s facility in the Philippines has been closed with traffic being redirected to other facilities.
Meanwhile, its facilities in Riga and other locations currently remain operational. However, there is a risk that these facilities will need to close in the future.
