Playtech also reported an accelerated £75m consideration after the end of the period, agreed under a marketing services agreement with operator Ladbrokes conditional on completion of the recommended merger between Ladbrokes and fellow operator Gala Coral.

Playtech chairman Alan Jackson said: “Our continued operational delivery across all business segments has translated into a strong financial performance across all key metrics, with revenues up by a third in the half year.”

Playtech also expects to complete its acquisitions of trading platform Plus500 for an approximate £459.6m and Forex broker Ava Trade for $105m by the end of September, subject to regulatory approval.

The acquisition of Ava Trade is being made by Playtech’s TradeFX Limited subsidiary.
