Initial rollout in New Jersey

Playtech has announced that it has entered a multi-state deal in the United States with Kindred Group’s Unibet Interactive. As part of the agreement, Playtech will provide its RNG Casino software to Unibet, initially in the New Jersey market. In the coming months, the software will roll out across Unibet offerings in other states.

Playtech is a UK-based company that is a market leader in the gambling technology industry. Its software covers the likes of online casinos, live casinos, sports betting, poker, bingo, and virtual sports.

Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akada welcomed the announcement, speaking about how Unibet provides a fantastic entertainment experience to its players in the US. In Thursday’s press release, he said: “Playtech continues to partner with the leading operators in New Jersey to bring its industry-leading Casino software to the U.S. market and we look forward to continuing to expand into new States.”

Kindred Group US senior vice president Manuel Stan spoke about the excitement of adding the Playtech Casino software to its New Jersey offering, saying: “Partnering with Playtech enables us to offer our online casino customers a selection of some of the best quality content, and we look forward to further collaboration with Playtech across more U.S. states in the future.”

Expanding its US presence

This Unibet partnership is the latest move as part of Playtech’s strategic expansion across the US. Playtech already has a presence in New Jersey through its deals with BetMGM and Bet365. New Jersey is consistently one of the biggest iGaming and sports betting markets in the US. There is a high barrier of entry, though, because of the presence of a wide range of operators.  

Playtech secured a lease for its first US-based live casino studio

Playtech also has a partnership in place with Parx Interactive, which has allowed Playtech to roll out its software in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. In March, Playtech secured a lease for its first US-based live casino studio.

In addition to its online casino in New Jersey, Unibet also has online casinos up and running in Virginia, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. Thus, it is likely that Playtech casino software will also reach those offerings in the coming months.

Playtech is selling financial services division

Playtech is currently in the process of refocusing its attention on its B2C and B2B gaming divisions. Also this week, Playtech announced the long-awaited sale of its financial services division.

It is selling its Finalto division to Gopher Investments in an all-cash deal for $250m. The Playtech board has already unanimously supported the sale, but it still needs to get approval from shareholders. The current timeline is for the transaction to be completed in the first half of 2022. Playtech had previously rejected a $210m offer in August. The company believes that this sale will help to increase the stability and predictability of cash flows for the remaining group.

MLB DK Pitcher Table

Aaron Nola

Nola’s seen mixed results throughout the 2021 season. He’s posted a 4.48 ERA with a 3.29 xFIP and a 30.3% strikeout rate through 30 starts. He’s also coming off of a 29.8 DK point performance against the New York Mets. Nola gets a solid matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates, who’ve recorded a .308 team wOBA and a 20% strikeout rate over the last 14 days. He’s a -267 favorite in a game set at 8.5 runs, and Nola’s grossly mispriced, specifically on DraftKings tonight.

Lance McCullers

McCullers is another solid pitching option on a limited slate. Through 26 starts, he boasts a 3.11 ERA with a 3.66 xFIP and a 27.5% strikeout rate. He’s also posted 20+ DK points in 3 consecutive starts. McCullers gets a great matchup against a struggling Los Angeles Angels team tonight. Over the last 14 days, they own a .289 team wOBA with a 21.2% strikeout rate. He’s a -162 favorite in a game set at 8.5 runs, and I feel McCullers is slightly safer than Luis Castillo in this particular matchup tonight.

Other GPP Targets: Luis Castillo, Alex Cobb


Top DraftKings Batters

MLB Top Batters

Top FanDuel Batters

FD MLB Top Batters



JT Realmuto

Realmuto’s finally priced appropriately on this slate, but he still makes an elite option. He’s hitting for a .325 average with a .525 slugging percentage and a .897 OPS over his last 10 games. He boasts 5 extra-base hits (1 home run), 9 RBIs, and 4 stolen bases over that span. Realmuto gets a great matchup against Connor Overton and Luis Oviedo, who are expected to share pitching duties tonight. Regardless of who’s on the mound, the edge goes to Realmuto, who’s expected to hit fourth in the Philadelphia Phillies lineup. He’s an elite option in all leagues on this slate.


Brad Miller

You’re going to need to save some salary on this slate, and Miller is one of the more interesting options. He’s been struggling, posting a .192 average with 3 extra-base hits (1 home run) and 1 RBI over his last 10 games. With that being said, Miller boasts plenty of upside for his price tag, especially against right-handed pitching. He’ll match up against Connor Overton and Luis Oviedo, and the remainder of the Pittsburgh Pirates bullpen. On this small of a slate, you can always consider cheap options in the top stacks, especially if they’re hitting fifth like Miller projects.


Nick Solak

There are a few great options at the top of second base, but I’m going to off a salary relief option here. Solak’s been struggling over his last 10 games, recording a .156 average with 1 extra-base hit and 2 RBIs. He’s flashed upside at times throughout his career, specifically against left-handed pitching. He gets a great matchup against Zac Lowther, who’s arguably the worst pitcher on this slate and struggled with home runs in limited innings in 2021. Solak’s expected to hit fifth in the Texas Rangers lineup, and he’s a solid alternative if you can’t get to the higher-priced options here.


Eugenio Suarez

Suarez is finally playing well for the Cincinnati Reds, recording a .308 average with a .577 slugging percentage and a .996 OPS over his last 10 games. Over that span, he posted 3 extra-base hits (2 home runs) and 2 RBIs. Suarez’s performed well against left-handed pitching throughout his career, and he gets a great matchup against Patrick Corbin tonight. He’s expected to hit fifth in the Cincinnati Reds lineup, and Suarez is a great option for his current price tag.

Editor’s Note: Remember, you can sign up for all of our Core Plays here, or join our free Discord here.


Kyle Farmer

Farmer’s found plenty of success in recent games, as he’s hitting for a .359 average with a .564 slugging percentage and a .939 OPS over his last 10 contests. He possesses 4 extra-base hits (2 home runs) and 6 RBIs in those games. Farmer’s looked great against left-handed pitching, and he gets a great matchup against Patrick Corbin tonight. He’s expected to hit second in the Cincinnati Reds lineup, and he can be used in all leagues with a cheap price tag.


Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies are the obvious outfield on this slate, as two of their three outfielders are cheap enough to easily fit into lineups. Odubel Herrera and Andrew McCutchen can be considered in all leagues as players around the $4k price tag. Bryce Harper is significantly more expensive, but he’s playing well enough to be used in all leagues. The edge clearly goes to any of these options over Connor Overton or Luis Oviedo.

Cincinnati Reds

I initially wanted to outline Nick Castellanos here, as he’s an option that can always be considered against left-handed pitching. He hasn’t been overly dominant in recent games, but I’m willing to pay up for him against Patrick Corbin. I changed it to the entire Cincinnati outfield because they have two minimum-priced options. Jose Barrero and Delino DeShields are both expected to draw starts. Neither’s been playing overly well in recent games, although they’ll open up plenty with their salaries, and they’re playing in one of the top offenses on this slate.


“Team Batting Score” – A metric that quickly highlights overall team batting based on Runs Created (RC+) by team and comparing it to the average and standard deviation of all other MLB Teams
“Opp. Pitcher SP Score” – A weighted metric that evaluates today’s starting pitchers based on xFIP and Games Started (currently using partial end of 2020 data blended with the 2021 season)
“Opp. BP Score” – Similar to SP Score but weights the xFIP for the team’s bullpen

DraftKings Team Stacks

DK MLB Stacks

FanDuel Team Stacks

FD MLB Stacks

“T2” (and T3/T4/T5) represents the Top 2 projected hitters for the team on the left (not necessarily the top 2 hitters in the batting order)

Stacking is an extremely important element to MLB DFS. In MLB, all of your players are correlated to each other. Outside of solo home runs, they need each other to succeed. If you look at the top of all of the big GPPs every night you will see stacks dominating the leaderboard.

When using our stacks chart, we want to identify teams that are projecting well but the ownership does not reflect their chance of success.

We only have a five-game slate tonight, limiting our choices for stacks. There are a few obvious ones, and my three favorites are listed below.

Rising Spins is a high-energy fruit game that includes an innovative “buy-a-bonus” feature that gives players the option to pay to trigger the game’s namesake Rising Spins free games event which is full of excitement. For example, when in the bonus, each time a line win occurs, the number of free spins remaining resets to three, and the current symbol on the reels is upgraded to the next higher symbol. When a line win is achieved in Rising Spins’ Free Games, the current symbol is upgraded to another symbol of higher value. This continues until the player reaches the most valuable symbol on the price table, the Red Seven symbol. After a win is achieved with the Red Seven symbol, the player moves up to the next level, but this time starting from a higher value symbol than the previous level.

“IGT is committed to keeping our content bundles for Romania fresh and ever-evolving based on player preferences and trends,” said Petko Ivanov, IGT Sales Director, Eastern Europe. “Stack Attack will elevate the excitement at any gaming venue and is the ideal complement to many IGT games that are already in the region.”
