Playtech is a company that has become involved in all areas of casino gaming. And they do so with a lot of style, which is what many of its casino partners love about them. Playtech's software brings games alive, in the way of 3D graphics, and an interface that allows players to make adjustments to control their casino atmosphere, whether it involves tweaking the audio effects, the screen sizes, or the speed of the game.
They have developed solutions for casino, poker, bingo, mobile and live gaming action, which means that it becomes very much a one-stop shop for the casino operator that wants to establish itself or wants to affect an upgrade. Whatever the objective is, Playtech generally has the answer.
It takes ability and service to get to the top in the casino software industry, because the field is extremely competitive. Playtech has been around for about as long as the industry has, so they are doing something that is right on the mark.
Through its association with great brands, Playtech also brings recognizable names to the table. And the games themselves offer the end user a unique experience through graphics, features, and safe play.
Playtech is currently being used by some of the industry's leaders, and one of the reasons is because they can provide across-the-board solutions.
One of the things that makes Playtech so attractive to players is the association with great brands. There are, in fact, agreements with Marvel, Universal and paramount to bring action stars and other pop culture icons to life in slot games.
When you look down the list, it's extremely impressive, and includes Gladiator, Fantastic Four, King Kong, Rocky, Pink Panther, Baywatch, Blade and The Punisher, among others.
Playtech also offers innovative versions of the other games in its collection: American, French and European Roulette, Blackjack, in several different versions, Sic Bo, Craps, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Casino War, Let Them Ride, Caribbean Poker and Red Dog, plus ten different variations on video poker, Derby Day and Keno.
Playtech also facilitates live dealer games, which come from a brick-and-mortar location and are dealt live to the player. The games they handle are Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Sic Bo.
Playtech has most recently moved into the arena of sports betting, with a solution that offers real-time wagering on sporting events and very sophisticated tool for setting prices, in whatever format is needed.
What Playtech does in many cases is put together networks of sites that are in its system; for example, there is a huge bingo network which allows players to win jackpots that are accumulated from all the member sites in the network, and players also get to chat with each other, regardless of which site they're logged into. Playtech also presents a network of poker rooms, which are obviously branded by each individual licensee.
And in the casinos themselves, the WinAJackpot network links together all of the Playtech casinos to produce some significant jackpots. There are not only slot games involved, but also video poker and table games. The company advertises that to date, over $125 million has been paid out over the WinAJackpot network.
