The launch of the Play Gun Lake app is part of the agreement reached between Playtech and Parx Interactive in February, which will also feature rollout of additional products in Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and other regulated US jurisdictions.

Key to Playtech’s US Expansion

The launch of the new iGaming app is another step for the technology company to establish its presence in Michigan and across the US, following another recent development in the state.

In March, Playtech announced it secured a long-term lease for a property in Southfield, an area in Michigan that is fast turning into a technology and innovation hub, to set one of the largest live entertainment studios and the company’s first Live Casino studio in the US.

The Live Casino studio, seen as the first step for Playtech’s expansion into the live entertainment space in the US, is set to feature the best from Playtech’s flagship studio in Riga via video technology and will offer retail and online gaming operators integrated content across different product verticals.
