Quova, Inc., the world's premier provider and developer of web

transaction in real time, has been incorporated into Playtech's
unique unified gaming platform to help Playtech's customers screen
out potentially fraudulent users and remain compliant with
multinational regulations on Internet gambling.
"We were a longtime customer of Quova's closest competitor, but we
decided we needed a more responsive partner and higher-quality data,"

is critical in our industry, and Quova is providing us with the
capabilities we need to offer more and better information solutions

applications -- online casino, poker, bingo, live gaming, land-based
kiosk networks, and fixed-odds games -- are fully intercompatible and
can be freely incorporated as stand-alone applications, accessed and
funded by players through the same user account and managed by the
