Players in selected online casinos that offer Live Casino options by Playtech, will be thrilled to learn that the software group has added a brand new product that combines sports betting with live dealer gaming.
The first-of-its-kind product will see punters able to follow live odds and action, as well as place bets without the need to leave the Live Casino tables.
This will enhance their Live Casino experience and allow them to enjoy multiple betting options under one virtual roof. Playtech has added lots of interesting features, such as sports-trained live dealers who not only take bets at live roulette tables, but also provide commentary about the sports action through live events.
Playtech said that the automated sports content will be delivered to its Live Casinos thanks to collaboration with Fresh8.
Sportbook and Live Casino Combined
The head of casino Innovation at Playtech, Kevin Kilminster, noted that the new product was a "significant step forward" for the company's Live Casino product.
For the first time, he said, sports fans who want to keep up with the latest odds "no longer have to choose between playing Roulette and keeping up-to-date with the big events."
"This is the first time any provider has delivered a full solution to bring an operator sportsbook offering into the Live Casino client," he added.
New Product at Ladbrokes Coral
The new Live Casino bet slip feature was rolled out at Ladbrokes Coral, where players have been flocking to try it out.
