Playtech is ranked among the top software providers, and this tech giant is not stopping soon. From their humble beginnings in Estonia in 1999 to now having over 700 slots, live games and table games. They are also licenced in 30 jurisdictions while having 170 other licences relating to gambling. Playtech is listed on the London Stock Exchange and has offices in 24 countries across the globe.

History of Playtech

Playtech started out in Tartu, Estonia, in 1999 and gained popularity for its poker network. Teddy Sagi and other brilliant minds specialising in multimedia, software and casino industries found it. In 2001, just two years later, Playtech launched its first casino product, and in 2004, they launched the iPoker network and expanded at a rapid rate, knowing that they could dominate the market.

Playtech seems to be going big every two years, and once again, just two years later, in 2006, they launched into the bingo market with Bingo Broadway. Since then, they have dominated this sector, with over 100 of the biggest operators belonging to Playtech. 2006 also saw Playtech launch on the London Stock exchange.

In 2008, Playtech once again made iGaming history when they signed an online gaming software licence agreement with William Hill and then also signed a joined venture for William Hill online. It would seem that with every passing year since, Playtech reached a remarkable milestone, anchoring themselves as the leaders of the iGaming industry.

Playtech's other achievements include the 2013 venture where they created a mobile casino for Betfred and partnered with Ladbrokes. They have since launched Playtech One, a multi-channel solution, signed a deal with Warner Brothers in 2017, opened the largest live dealer casino in Latvia, acquired Eyecon, and made its way into the US and Canada.

Playtech is an icon in the iGaming, supplying slots, bingo, lottery games, poker, live table games, sports betting and a host of jackpot games.

Top Playtech games

There are hundreds of games from Playtech to choose from, across every genre, with every jackpot type, branded slot, and table game.

A great example of a branded slot would be Gladiator Jackpot, released in 2012. It may be older, but it's a favourite. This slot is based on the movie Gladiator, with Russell Crowe, who plays General Maximus. The story in this Roman-themed slot plays out on the 5x3 grid and 25 paylines.

The Buffalo Blitz slot comes with six reels and 4096 ways to win. You have all the free spins and high-paying symbols that made this title an instant classic.
