Playtech Ltd. (PTEC) Chief Executive Officer Mor Weizer says Facebook Inc. (FB:US)’s share sale on the stock exchange will boost social gaming and the company remains highly acquisitive.
“We remain highly acquisitive,” Weizer said in a phone interview today. “We see some opportunities, given that the market is undergoing regulatory change. I see reports that Facebook may be floating in mid-May that will give a boost to social gaming.”
Weizer added that he expects the U.S. make a “lot of progress” this year toward regulating gambling.
