Access to a Playtech internal environment was not used by OnAir Entertainment for spying purposes, an independent investigation has concluded. 

This month, OnAir told NEXT.io it had engaged an independent investigator to examine allegations of competitor spying that were originally posted on LinkedIn by an ex-employee. 

The investigation confirmed that an OnAir employee had retained access to the Playtech system and that his access credentials had not been revoked.

In a statement provided to NEXT.io, OnAir described the system as an “externally facing demo environment”.

“Given this nature of the demo environment, no proprietary information beyond externally facing games which are already committed to and completed for release is available,” OnAir said following the conclusion of the investigation. 

“The investigation concluded that the individual utilised the system solely for competitor analysis, a standard industry practice within the iGaming sector.

“In light of these findings, OnAir Entertainment is confident that the access was not used for spying, copying, or any infringing activity in any manner.”

OnAir has also “taken steps” to prevent any further access to the system in future, it said. 

Additionally, the live casino provider has committed to initiating HR disciplinary proceedings in accordance with the company’s established practices and policies.

“OnAir Entertainment remains committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and compliance within the iGaming industry,” the business added. 

No further details were provided on how the independent investigation was conducted.
