Management reported that Playtech has closed the final quarter of 2008 with record revenues and has completed two major milestones that will take the software company into 2009 with an expanded business that will steer a course through the current economic conditions.
The first of these milestones was the successful finalisation of the series of transactions with William Hill plc and the affiliates of Playtech. The company announced on 2 January 2009 that in accordance with the agreements all assets and businesses purchased by Playtech from its affiliates and other third parties were successfully injected into William Hill Online, with Playtech as its gaming software provider. Following this milestone William Hill Online successfully launched its Casino and Poker products with Playtech's software.
The second milestone of in Q4 2008 was achieved when Playtech entered the regulated Italian poker market at the end of December. Current results indicate that the Italian poker network has proven to be significantly revenue enhancing and above management's expectations.
Commenting on the KPI's Playtech's Chief Executive, Mor Weizer, said: "Once again we have enjoyed a successful quarter both operationally and strategically as we continue to grow the business and make the most of the opportunities presenting themselves. We are particularly pleased with how smoothly the integration of the William Hill joint venture has progressed, which bodes well for this important strategic company development. The company has met management's demanding expectations and we are confident that Playtech will meet its targets for the full year."

"Brian- That is not true. You tell me when the last time a VIP host was in conact with me??. I am asking for a 2 btc gift to satisfy me for being level 5. Your casino cleary stated a specail git would be give for each of the 5 levels. In addtion Brian, am I not correct that your betsoft games the max amount of spins were changed to a max of 20 cents pers spin from 40 cents. Why was not the players informed of this? My comments are honest and fair. The only time I saw your name in an email fto me is in regaring the monthly loyalty gift (which all players get) I am here to be honest and fair with my assesement on my treatment. And over 60,000 dollars in depsoits I think I have the right to voice an opinion. "READ
"Hi my favortie casino is WinAday login is laceysoft and here is my scary Halloween story. My daughter Shannon had a friend over from Illinois her name Jessica and then my sons David and Jake..we were all in the living room and we decided for Halloween at 11PM at night to do a seance.....we were gonna see if we could see or hear anything. Tensions were high as we started cause we had candles lit and it was eerie with the hanging skelton and the ghost who if noises were heard let out this ghostly moaning....we call him Ghostie.....but I led the seance and we were just calling upon any spirit to let us know they were with us...OMG it was so creepy and we were hearing things...and you could see the kids were getting a little nervous. By the patio as I again asked if any spirits were with us.when all of a sudden there was a breeze we all felt and it got really cold.....I felt that since we were by the pation door.could it be that??? I was getting a little freaked out..but hey I am the adult gotta keep the kids calm here...yeah right when I was a little scared myself......then all of a sudden my daughter Shannon shouted out....this is crazy, I don't believe in ghosts......and holy crap my apartment door opened itself and then slammed shut....all of us hauled ass out of there and ran down the hall to my bedroom screaming our butts off.....I think my daughter and her friend peed their pants.........and then the fear turned to nervous laughter and nobody said a word about what happened.......paranormal activity?? Who knows but I am not gonna even question it..But, makes ya wonder. Needless to say no more seances were ever done, especially on Halloween.....that was scary!!!!!!!! "READ
