The new multi-year contract covers the popular operator’s retail estate throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The extension of the partnership at a time of increased pressure on retail operators reflects the growing demand for Playtech BGT Sports’ SSBTs, which have bucked the trend in retail sports betting to produce double digit growth year on year.

A host of exciting new content and unique features will ensure they deliver the latest sporting events and information direct to shop customers, alongside thousands of pre-match and in-play betting opportunities.

In addition, it will see the trial of PBS’ new Tap2Bet functionality, which allows customers to place bets directly onto the terminals with their debit cards.

David Newton, Managing Director Retail at Paddy Power, said: “I’m very pleased to have extended our agreement. It is a critical time for LBOs and we had a long review of our options before concluding that Playtech BGT Sports was the best one for us.

“Our partnership with them means we can continue to provide our customers with an increasing number of excellent in-shop betting options.”

John Pettit, Chief Commercial Officer at Playtech BGT Sports, said: “We’re delighted to have extended our deal with Paddy Power and look forward to providing their customers with the best product available over the next four years.

“This partnership allows us to continue investing in innovation and demonstrates the faith we both have in the future of retail betting in the UK and Ireland.”
