Europe's No.1 online gaming provider has built P5 its new poker platform empowering 25 international poker operators to implement unique white label/SaaS solutions. One of the main challenges has been to combine high requirements on Stability, Scalability and Flexibility.

The vision was to build a system that combines

  • The Flexibility of Lego bricks
  • The Scalability of a Massive multiplayer online game, like World of Warcraft

P5 reached its goals by achieving a unique level of decomposition and modularization. It is built on a single underlying poker integration platform based on SOA and EDA architectural best practices. This foundation supports an increasing range of multinational regulatory gaming requirements enabling various integration scenarios for large scale cost efficiency. Key principles include functional decomposition, environment abstraction and encapsulation of core business logic.
