Playtech Casino Software
Playtech Casino Software powers some of the most respected names in the online gaming industry, with a client list of over 100 online casinos.
Established in 1999, its first casino came online in 2001, and today Playtech also provides poker, bingo, live gaming and video terminal solutions. Indeed the Live Dealer games provided by Playtech are some of the best in iGaming.
The Playtech Casino Software platform currently features over 500 games. The standard blackjack, roulette and blackjack table games can be found, in addition to exclusive table games such as Blackjack Switch and Wild Viking.
It also has a wide range of slots, including some of my personal favourites such as the Gladiator Slots, the first licensed theme slot in the Playtech stable.
Playtech is also behind the development of the Marvel-themed slots and other great slot games such as Great Blue, another favourite of mine.
Film Tie-Ins and Innovative Slots
Playtech also offers a wide range of video poker games, from standard Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild and Joker Poker up to the 50-line Jacks or Better.
In 2003, Playtech was the first major software manufacturer to launch Live Dealer products, featuring various versions of live baccarat, blackjack, roulette and Sic Bo – these games have made Playtech the dominant player in the Asian market.
Playtech now operates live gaming studios in Asia and Europe. Playtech also operates the largest poker network online, iPoker. Most of Playtech’s operators have poker rooms on the network, with up to 30,000 real players online at peak times, playing in tournaments or standard poker games.
Bad beat jackpots are also available on the iPoker network. In 2007, the Tribeca Poker Network was acquired and merged into the iPoker network.
Playtech’s Bingo network, also launched in 2003, links many bingo rooms online to form a large network with bigger tournaments and prizes.
Playtech are regarded alongside Microgaming as the leading online casino software company.
