Australian Bingo Website Eyecon Joins Playtech Family
Playtech, one of the biggest companies in the world of online gambling, have decided to make their empire even larger. Palytech became the owner of Eyecon for a deal involving £50 million!
Eyecon is an Australian game provider, known around the world for their contribution to the online bingo. This company has developed some of the world’s most popular bingo games, like Fluffy Favorites or its sequel Fluffy Too. Now, as Eycon is a part of the highly successful Playtech family, we can expect them to develop even better bingo games in a near future.
More about These Two Companies
Eyecon was founded two decades ago by an Australian entrepreneur called Scott Murray. The Brisbane-based company started as a developer of content for major bingo sites. Over the years, Eyecon made their own Remote Gaming Server, which made them attractive to a number of successful bingo brands, including Dragonfish.
Still, it took a while until someone made an official offer that was too good to turn down. The company in question was Playtech, who needed to splash out an amazing £50 million in order to make Eyecon a part of their group. According to the Eyecon founder, the acquisition is the best thing ever that has happened to this company. With the help of a giant such as Playtech, Eyecon games will be able to take over a number of new markets.
His opinion is shared by the people from Playtech. Their CEO, Mor Weizer, says he is extremely glad that the deal went thru. He adds that this is just a beginning of a long journey to success. Being an ambitious company, Playtech is looking to make their group even bigger, so we can expect them to make a few deals like this one in the next couple of years.
