Playtech is one of the giants in the online gaming industry.
Since their inception in 1999, Playtech has gone on to power the software behind more than 400 different casinos, winning hundreds of industry awards along the way.
Popular Playtech Slots
While Microgaming and NetEnt’s Guiness record breaking progressive jackpots have stolen the limelight, Playtech slots have been quietly turning a small handful of players into overnight millionaires. In 2013, one player discreetly took $3.2million home while playing Gladiator – a jackpot slot that pays out an average of $1.3million per win.
Playtech slot and jackpots are known to be medium volatility games. In plain language, this means they don’t pay out often, but when it happens, you can expect a bigger win. In general, they are more suitable for players with a bit of experience who know that patience does pay.
Beginners usually prefer Lotto Madness, which is also a progressive jackpot, but the payout is only around $10,000 – this makes it a better game for players who prefer smaller but more frequent payouts.

Playtech has produced more than 400 casino games, ranging from bingo, slots, video poker and dealer games. Their wide variety of slots in particular positions them, along with Microgaming, as one of the major software providers with the largest range of available games.
Starting in 2013, a limited number of Playtech casinos now offer live games broadcast via the Internet with real dealers. Live games allow players to participate in real live games at a bricks and mortar casino through a video link.
Playtech offers plenty of variations on the standard casino classics from blackjack and roulette to craps, keno and some interesting Chinese games.

You can just log in and get started in almost any Internet browser. Perfect for when you want to play at work or somewhere you don’t own the computer and so can’t install software.
Playtech Mobile Casino: Finally we have the newest development in Playtech casino software – mobile gaming software.
