Playtech Live Casino Coronavirus Update

Playtech has published a statement regarding the impact of the Coronavirus Covid-19 to its live casino operations.

Playtech has issued a fairly broad statement this morning regarding its live casino operations during the Coronavirus Covid-19.

The statement says that “our Live Casino business remains strong and is highly supportive to our partners and licensees, including on the Spanish and Italian markets”.


Playtech runs their live casino operations from a number of studios located around the world and like most responsible businesses has comprehensive business continuity in place.

These have already been tested, after live dealer games were suspended in the Manilla studio, following mandatory requests by the Philippine Government.

A positive is the Auto (RNG) Roulette games are still operating from there.

What additional impacts we’ll see if more restrictions are placed on Playtech are difficult to assess at this time. I don’t want to guess what Playtech has in place or indeed what changes they’ve been making to improve what they already have.

Rest assured I’ll provide an update if things change.

Hopefully, we’ll see little impact, but perhaps some reduction in table capacity.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?

After all that, would I play there regularly?
