LONDON, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Playtech, the international designer, developer and licensor of software and services for the online, mobile, TV and land-based gaming industry, is proud to announce that Genting has selected the Playtech Neon system to manage its land-based casinos in the UK.
The Playtech system, which was developed in collaboration with its subsidiary, Intelligent Gaming, will manage customer data, cash desk operations, table gaming, incentive programmes and compliance across the group.
Genting UK's operations range from VIP private members' clubs to modern, purpose-built premises, with 41 casinos located from Edinburgh to Plymouth. In London it is the capital's leading casino operator with six casinos which cater for all levels of the gaming market, including its flagship, Crockfords, located in the heart of Mayfair which is recognised as the world's oldest private members gaming club.
Chris Dempsey, Director of Consulting for Playtech's subsidiary Intelligent Gaming, described the project. '"Neon will provide a unique solution, connecting Genting UK's operations to a central system with a range of HTML5 and iOS applications. Neon is the most flexible casino management system available and we are carrying out significant customisation to support and reinforce Genting's processes. We are proud and excited to partner with the world's biggest gaming operator on a project that is so important to the modernisation of their business."
Chris Ashworth, Genting UK IT Director, explained the decision to implement the Playtech system. "Playtech's Neon will enable us to centralise our systems and streamline many customer-facing business processes to improve our customer service and drive our business forward. The system will be fully centralised in a high-availability data centre and will integrate with our other key business applications via TIBCO."
The Neon system will be implemented during 2014 ready for the opening of Resorts World Birmingham in early 2015.
Playtech develops unified software platforms and content for the online and land-based gaming industry, together with providing a range of ancillary services such as marketing, hosting and CRM services.
The Group's capabilities enable the delivery of an integrated software or turnkey solution, with players accessing online, broadcast, mobile and server-based gaming terminals through a single account.
New licensees include existing online operators upgrading or diversifying their offering, land-based casino groups, government sponsored entities such as lotteries, and new entrants making their online gaming debut, particularly in newly-regulated markets.
Founded in 1999, Playtech is listed on the London Stock Exchange and has over 3,000 employees located in twelve countries. Its leading gaming applications include casino, poker, bingo, sports betting, live, mobile and social gaming, casual and fixed odds games.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
