If you've ever played in online casinos, you've probably played Playtech. They are one of the most popular online casino providers in the business and for good reason.

Playtech and Ladbrokes logo

Playtech was founded in 1999 and currently delivers leading software solutions for a wide range of online gaming applications, however it is probably best known for its high quality online casino software line, Playtech Casino. Since its inception, Playtech has grown into one of the world's largest publicly trading online gambling companies. This growth is partly due to publicly listing their company with an IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2005. This move helped generate a huge amount of cash for the the company enabling them to invest in continued growth and make suitable acquisitions to further develop the brand.


The popular Playtech Casino slot machines currently enjoyed by hundreds of thousands (if not millions) worldwide are a result of their extensive knowledge and experience in the online casino gaming industry. They are continually developing new games and enhancing existing franchises to stay one step ahead of the competition. They are consistently lauded as one of the best in the industry and if you have ever played a Playtech Casino game you would no doubt tend to agree that this reputation is well justified. In addition to their range of casino games that can be enjoyed across a number of established sites, Playtech also puts its expertise into practice working closely with many online casinos to create exciting and captivating experiences. One of Playtech's current objectives is to develop cross-platform gameplay enabling players to access their favourite games on multiple different devices, such as desktop and laptop computers as well as smartphones.

Playtech Bonus

Playtech is renowned within the online casino industry as being an advocate for fair play and for not exploiting its users. As such, their games offer some of the lowest wagering requirements for some of the most generous bonuses in addition to a reduced house edge. Such player-friendly ideals have served the company well no doubt contributing to its continued and exponential success. Unlike some other online casino software providers, Playtech do not give extra special attention to its high-rollers rather they focus on offers with generous bonuses and incentives to smaller stake players. This is a sensible strategy as players tend to begin with small deposits until they are comfortable moving up to higher stakes. Cultivating a rewarding and honest environment for beginners will undoubtedly result in a percentage of those eventually stepping up to higher stakes in addition to strengthening brand loyalty.

Perhaps the most enduring feature of Playtech casino games is quite simply their quality. Sharp, crisp visuals supplemented with impressive audio accompaniments make it a great place to play online casino games either for fun or for real money. Playtech games cover all types of casino games such as table games, video poker, progressive games, scratch cards, etc., but it is undoubtedly the classic and video slots which they have become most famous for. They have developed over 200 types of online slot machines each featuring a unique theme and individual appeal.

Playtech slots are characterised by their highly polished feel and cutting edge visuals although some might argue that they are not the absolute pinnacle of graphical presentation. However, the games are consistently smooth and fast so that you can always be sure of a solid gaming experience whenever you try a new game. Most Playtech slot machines include customisable options enabling the player to choose the speed, volume and other audio/video options. The majority of their slot games are based on their own themes however Playtech have also developed a number of popular branded slot machines such as Gladiator, Pink Panther, Kong, Iron Man 2 and Marvel slots. However, it is one of their own themed slot machines, Beach Life, that continues to be one of their most played and enduring games.

Playtech Jackpots

One of the reasons Playtech slots have become so popular is due to the progressive jackpots that feature on many of their games. Since launching in 2003 the WinAJackpot progressive jackpot network has paid out an astonishing $126,400,000. Beach life currently holds the record for the highest ever single jackpot win at $4,750,266. Gold Rally consistently awards jackpots above $2 million and has paid out more than $33 million in jackpots since its launch. The reason why these progressive jackpots swell to such monumental proportions is due to the WinAJackpot network which connects all Playtech players to the prize pool regardless of which casino they are playing at.

Live Dealers

Aside from slots, Playtech is a market leader in live online casino experiences since they launched their live dealer service in 2003. Playing your favourite casino games with a real life dealer is becoming an increasingly popular feature amongst the online gaming community largely due to its interactive nature (plus the chance to flirt with the attractive croupiers!) Experienced players may still prefer the regular automated varieties due to speed and convenience but casual players should definitely try out the live dealer experience perfected by Playtech.

Widespread Appeal

Unlike rival software developers Novoline and Merkur, Playtech is not greatly favoured in any particular region and the software enjoys strong market shares in all parts of Europe. The UIGEA bill passed in 2006 subsequently caused Playtech to declare that they would no longer accept players from the United States. However, the company has recovered well since this setback mostly due to its broad involvement across a vast range of global online casino services. It is popular amongst real money players as well as those who want to play Playtech slot machines free.

PlaytechThe Ultimate Online Casino Provider?

Although Playtech is certainly one of the best online casino providers out there, they are not totally infallible. The company has been criticised for not releasing new software very often, which is probably due to their perpetual involvement in other areas of online casinos. Their game library is also not as large as some other companies, however it makes up this slight lack in quantity through its quality. Another frequent jibe is that the software is only available through download unlike the purely browser-based options from rival companies. Although this is rarely a problem it does mean that players cannot instantly pick a game and then start playing at the click of a button. However, these are pretty weak criticisms. The large and growing popularity of Playtech casino software speaks volumes about its quality and the company's ability to perpetually innovate and respond to demand. As long as you live outside the United States, Playtech is certainly one online casino developer you should always look out for.
