Gambling platform software company Playtech plc LSE:PTEC is buying a controlling stake in forex trading platform TradeFX for $224 million. Israeli billionaire Teddy Sagi holds a controlling stake in both companies.
Playtech’s biggest clients include William Hill, Paddy Power, Betfair and Intergame Gala-Coral and the company also has a partnership with Ladbrokes. TradeFX is a trading platform and payment services provider.

Playtech will buy a 91.1% stake in TradeFX, which could receive an additional €250 million in milestone payments. Through its Marketsm brand, TradeFX provides foreign exchange and CFD contract for difference trading platforms, including its MetaTrader 4 platform.

Webb does have his battles with the Betfair house and thinks he should be treated better by them than he is. He doesn’t have an account manager, which he thinks strange, and the business has introduced premium charges for customers placing or editing more than 1,000 bets an hour, or making large numbers of data requests within the same second. Which is exactly what he does.
“Betfair’s argument is that people like me, who make money consistently, should help fund acquisition of new customers,” says Webb. “But I’ll put through millions a week, all at my own risk.”
The newly floated business has changed a lot since he first joined. “It’s much more like a traditional bookmakers now. The Utopian dream has faded,” he says wistfully. A bit like the channel perhaps?®
