Multi-year extension testament to dominant role in retail
London, 2nd December 2019: Playtech BGT Sports (PBS), the market-leading provider of omni-channel sports betting solutions, has extended its long-term partnership to supply self-service betting terminals (SSBTs) to Jenningsbet.
The new multi-year contract covers the independent operator’s retail estate throughout the United Kingdom. It comes as PBS’ SSBTs continue to illustrate their key role in the future of UK retail betting shops by producing double digit growth year-on-year.
The extension of the partnership reflects the growing demand for self-service products and a digitised in-shop user experience that delivers the latest sporting events and information directly to the customer’s fingertips.
With Jennings’ customers set to enjoy more exciting content and innovative features than any other SSBT on the market, Lee Drabwell, Senior Commercial Director at Playtech BGT Sports said:
“We’re delighted to have extended our deal with Jennings and look forward to providing its customers with the best products and features available.
“Our SSBTs are now an integral part of the modern betting shop experience, particularly when it comes to in-play betting options. With the industry’s leading operators such as Jennings lining up to extend their agreements, we see this deal as the perfect endorsement for how good our product is.”
Julian Knight, Managing Director at Jenningsbet added:
“When it comes to driving incremental revenue and delivering the digitised retail experience that customers increasingly desire, extending our contract with PBS was a no-brainer.
“Self-service is integral to retail betting’s future and we’re seeing continued adoption across all our shops as more and more customers take to using them.
“Enhancing the customer experience through market leading technology is key to our strategy and we see PBS as the perfect partner to deliver that.”
