In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Playtech boss Mor Weizer has talked optimistically about prospects to re-enter the US market.
Of course this would be great news for US players wanting to play live games, given current options are limited and Playtech have a cracking live games platform.
Weizer said that, “The timing is not clear but we see a genuine and positive momentum [towards the regulation of online gambling]…We see a lot of interest from operators in the U.S., and we are in discussions with various local groups.”
He didn’t mention who any of those ‘local groups’ were, but you’d have to think some of the US terrestrial casino majors like MGM Grand, Penn National and Las Vegas Sands would be among them. Imagine, the Sands brand and financial clout, powered by Playtech’s live games. Dare say it would be a better option than Betphoenix (sorry guys).
Still plenty of water to flow under the bridge before any of this happens.
