Internet casino game group Playtech has announced the opening of a live dealer casino studio in Riga, Latvia, which is the largest in the entire world.
The new facility measures 8,500 square meters, and features state-of-the-art cameras, which will broadcast games in high definition. There is also a full dealer campus, which will be used to train staff on how to deal out the different games that will be played there. Specific areas will also be dedicated to specific operators who have signed deals to have their branding put on tables.
Commenting on the opening Playtech CEO Mor Weizer said, "This has been a huge undertaking but, more importantly, is a huge step forwards in live casino and one no other company except Playtech is capable of making. 'Our licensees' offerings have firmly been future-proofed with the completion of our new studio, leading-edge software and hardware and state-of-the art control centre. And crucially, it is their players who will benefit the most from the best live casino offering on the market."
"This now gives us the platform to deliver the next generation of live casino to our customers, and will also give us the flexibility and ability to deliver many new and innovative products."
Live dealer gaming has been growing over recent years as internet connection speeds improve and give players immersion that other casino games cannot. The games are particularly popular in Europe, where players can play roulette, blackjack, and craps among other games with a live dealer presence.
