One of the largest online gaming software developers is doing more than just well apparently, since Playtech has announced that the company would spend over 800 million on acquisitions.

The company has no debts at the moment and it had £424 million on its accounts in March 2013 which made it possible to look for investment opportunities. According to the company’s representatives it is a good position to be in and the opportunity needs to be used to take it to the next level shortly.
