Casino Cosmopol partners with Playtech for casino management solution

Swedish casino operator Casino Cosmopol has selected Intelligent Gaming Systems (IGS), a Playtech company, as its System Partner to deliver a complete casino management suite.

The deal includes slots, tables, poker, visitor registration, cash desk and business intelligence capabilities.

Casino Cosmopol is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AB Svenska Spel that operates four international casinos in Sweden. Together the casinos employ more than 1,300 people and enjoyed more than one million visits in 2016. As with all Svenska Spel entities, the profits from Casino Cosmopol go directly to the government treasury and are distributed to a range of good causes.

Per Jaldung, CEO of Casino Cosmopol, commented: “As a public-sector organisation, Casino Cosmopol applies the Public Procurement Act and our major investments are subject to a competitive procurement process. We specified detailed requirements for a system to connect our gaming, business and compliance operations, with a focus on AML and GDPR.

“Intelligent Gaming Systems was the supplier that met our requirements best and was consequently awarded the contract. Its understanding of the challenges that are presented by AML and GDPR with respect to casino operation has made us feel very confident that they are the right match for Casino Cosmopol.”

Casino Cosmopol and IGS have entered into a framework agreement and the system will be implemented in several phases across 2018 and 2019.

Martin Sykes, Managing Director, IGS, added: “This success underlines our position as the leading systems supplier to the European casino industry. Casino Cosmopol is one of the world’s most responsible gaming operators and is at the leading edge of initiatives such as AML and GDPR. The project includes a number of innovative developments which will underpin our position as the world leaders in AML and responsible gaming.”
