Online gaming software firm Playtech has announced that they've decided to launch their own mobile product line in order to comply with Apple's App Store guidelines that change next month.
The move will see Playtech's current native casino app augmented to include fully native gaming content with natively compiled games within Apple's SDK, which will allow operators to use those blueprints to build their own apps. Apple has updated the rules for gambling apps in the App Store, requiring all apps to be native to iOS.
Commenting on the decision Playtech's CTO Peter Mares said, "These changes have created yet another Apple-shaped hoop for operators to jump through. Luckily, we have been in the game for a very long time and understand that in order to succeed, we need to provide a solution that is guaranteed to help our licensees continue operating as usual.
"To this end, we're pleased to be able to support our customers in their preparation with a core, native-first product line, including a selection of fully native gaming content and natively compiled games."
