Playtech BGT Sports debuts QUANTUM digital betting platform with OPAP


Greece’s leading gaming company to leverage PBS’s digital platform

London, 3rd February 2020:  Playtech BGT Sports (PBS), the market-leading provider of omni-channel sports betting solutions, has announced the official roll-out of its latest state-of-the-art sports betting digital platform, Quantum, with OPAP, Greece’s leading gaming company.

playtech-bgt-sports-debuts-quantum-digital-betting-platform-with-opapOPAP will become the first operator to take advantage of PBS digital sportsbook offering as part of its QUANTUM roll-out.  This new agreement follows the existing partnership between PBS and OPAP, following the integration of PBS retail sports betting platform in 2017 across OPAP’s retail network in Greece.

As the undisputed global industry leader for retail betting solutions with over 65,000 terminals live worldwide and 1.1 million bets processed daily, PBS’ QUANTUM enables a first of its kind omni-channel betting operation. It can serve customers’ every retail and online bet entry point simultaneously from one centralised source.

PBS already provides software and services across OPAP’s retail network with its full-size and compact SSBTs, as well as over the counter (OTC) points of sale, totalling more than 14,000 bet entry points.

The QUANTUM digital platform will allow OPAP to tap into new opportunities in the betting market and also provide the operator with a complete toolkit to view and manage its sports betting operations.

Set to be fully managed via the operator’s in-house traders, PBS has also developed a ‘trading cockpit’ for OPAP, ensuring that the operator is ready for 2020 with one of the most efficient sports betting operations available.

Commenting on the new partnership between PBS and OPAP, Playtech BGT Sports CEO Armin Sageder said:

“OPAP is one of the most renowned gaming companies internationally and we’re thrilled to be debuting our state-of-the-art multi-channel sportsbook with them.

“The result of over two years of development, we have no doubt that QUANTUM Digital will prove to be a growth driver for OPAP throughout 2020 and beyond. We look forward to a continued successful relationship together for many years to come”.

Damian Cope, CEO of OPAP added:

“The introduction of the PBS platform, across all of our retail betting outlets in Greece, has been a critical element in the improvement and growth of OPAP’s retail sports betting performance. We are therefore pleased to be expanding our partnership with the adoption of the QUANTUM digital platform, which will provide OPAP with a number of exciting new opportunities. We look forward to continuing our productive relationship with PBS in the future.”
