Casino game developer Playtech has announced that they're going to be opening a live dealer studio in Michigan as they expand their presence throughout the United States.
The new studio will be located in Southfield, which is a suburb that borders Detroit. There are many gambling firms that have offices in Southfield, including IGT. Games will broadcast from the spot, including titles like blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and more. The video capabilities will be identical to what is put out at the Riga, Latvia studio. There'll also be the possibility of custom-tailored tables, which can feature branding for partner casinos.
"The new studio in Michigan is the first step in our US Live expansion as we look to deliver Live studios in all regulated states," said Playtech CEO Shimon Akad. "Our Michigan studio is being designed to be one of the more sophisticated studios tailored to the US market featuring innovation and entertainment at its best. The scale of our technology and breadth of our product will allow Playtech to take the live iGaming experience in the US to the next level.
"At Playtech, we pride ourselves in being a key member of all our communities and we are thrilled to be bringing employment opportunities to local communities as part of our expansion in the US. With the effects of the global pandemic still felt in markets across the globe it is more important than ever we support our local industries and communities."
There isn't a timeframe for when the studio will begin broadcasting games, but it likely won't be long before we start seeing games played out of the studio.
