The year has been one packed with stress, big changes and interesting developments. Above all, it has been another year of various changes and growth for the gaming industry.

Take a look at the hottest casino news that we reported on this December.

Playtech goes live with Casumo

Playtech is one of the industry giants that has been around for decades. In an effort to stay relevant and enter the modern and mobile sector more effectively, Playtech has signed a partnership with Casumo. This deal gives Casumo Casinos across the globe access to all of Playtech’s regular and live casino solutions.

The games have already rolled out on the Casumo main brand and will be available to Casumo players in Sweden, Denmark, Span and the UK early 2021.

NetEnt and Evolution Merger leads to job loss

One of the hottest topics lately has been Evolution Gaming’s decision to acquire NetEnt. After months of negotiation and waiting the deal has gone through.

It came as a massive shock when Evolution announced that they will shut down NetEnt Live casino games right away. Logically it makes sense but it left more than 300 workers out in the cold.

Luckily the Malta workers union stepped in and managed to help save the jobs of as many workers as possible.

Playing for the weekend feeling at Casino Friday
