In an unexpected turn of events, Caliplay is attempting to cut its links with Playtech, casting doubt on their long-standing collaboration, and the conflict between the two gaming titans has now turned legal.
Caliplay, a partnership between Playtech and the dominant Mexican gambling company Caliente, finds itself involved in a maze of legal difficulties as it tries to straighten out its relationship with Playtech. The business operations of Caliplay have been greatly damaged by this rift.
Legal Maneuvers and Unanticipated Outcomes
Prior judicial orders required Playtech to keep delivering software and services to Caliplay, although with some limitations and depriving Playtech of its legitimate compensation. Both sides are at odds as a result of the circumstance, with Playtech being forced to assist Caliplay while receiving no compensation.
Caliplay is still dedicated to settling the conflict quickly, though. It has promised to collaborate closely with Playtech to resolve the issue peacefully and protect both sides’ interests in the process.
Playtech, on the other hand, seemed surprised by what was happening. The company’s admission that it was unaware of the legal battle taking place in Mexico shed insight on the two gaming behemoths’ seeming lack of contact.
“Whilst Caliplay has stated that the Mexican courts accepted jurisdiction on 28 August 2023, Playtech only became aware of the issuance of proceedings today,” remarked Playtech in a statement.
Playtech reflected on the positive working relationship it had in the past with Caliplay and referred to it as a “highly valued customer.” Despite these compliments, Playtech is still unable to obtain the court documents connected to the lawsuit, placing the business in a limbo.
As soon as it has access to the court records, Playtech has stated that it would assess the situation, and it has guaranteed shareholders that it will provide an update if it is considered essential.
For perspective, it should be noted that the main point of contention is whether Caliplay still has the opportunity to redeem an extra service charge, which is an essential component of the strategic agreement that the two gaming giants signed in 2014.
