Playtech signs an agreement with The Jockey Club

One of the biggest names within the iGaming world, Playtech, has announced that they have signed an international agreement with The Jockey Club.

The slot developer known for huge titles such as Age of the Gods and Kingdoms Rise has been given the rights to develop multi-product content for the next five years.

Who is The Jockey Club?

Originally founded in 1750, The Jockey Club is one of the largest commercial groups in British Horseracing with 15 racecourses across the UK.

The Jockey Club is giving Playtech exclusive rights to developer content based on the famous races from The Jockey Club such as The National Stud.

A new Sporting Legends slot?

Playtech has suggested that this partnership will deliver live casino games, poker, virtual sports, online slots and even bingo games.

It's expected that Playtech will start with a new Sporting Legends slot joining the ranks of AP McCoy Sporting Legends, Frankie Dettori: Sporting Legends and Ascot: Sporting Legends. Many have speculated that this will correlate with the Cheltenham festival.
