Playtech is considered to be amongst the largest providers of online games in the world. In fact, numerous poker players and casinos would rate the Playtech software as being some of the best around. They are also heavily involved in the gambling industry and work with a number of top providers in the UK as well as the rest of Europe.

Gaming library

Playtech has an ever-growing repertoire of games that encompass all genres. Their most successful areas, however, are in their poker sections and also their bingo – both of which have large and highly successful networks in place around the world. This does not mean that their live casino offering is to be sneezed at. In fact quite the contrary, as Playtech is currently developing some software that is to create augmented reality and would be the most advanced technology seen on the Internet in terms of live games. With this in mind, all their tables are created to the highest standards with stunning studio designs in order to create a more engaging experience.

The new augmented reality experience encompasses just seven of the tables with five of them being Blackjack, and one each for Roulette and Baccarat. Even on the regular live games there is a huge variation of options in each of the game titles, providing top of the line gaming experiences across the board.

Live dealers – different languages

The software provider also offers dealers that speak a number of different languages, thus catering to an even greater range of potential players. Their game selection is also one of the better ones, with not just the standard options of Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat, but also a number of different poker variants and also the rarely seen version of live Sic Bo.

Other variants to the games available are an unlimited Blackjack game and also a double screen Roulette, both of which serve to add a little extra excitement into the games.

Casino studios in, Riga, Manila and Romania

Currently, Playtech operate three separate studios – one in Riga that caters to the European market, one in Manila which is for the Asian market, and a third and final studio which was opened in Romania this year. In addition, they also stream some of their games out of genuine land casinos, one of which is the Spanish-based Casino Gran Madrid. With so much coverage across the world, Playtech is quite possibly the most comprehensive live game provider in the entire industry. The equipment used by the provider is also nothing but the best, as all game feeds use top of the line cameras using high definition as the quality to stream in. This means that all broadcasting feeds are instant and maintain a high up-time with the fastest streaming of all the online game providers.

Instant play

Playtech software uses instant play, which means that no download is necessary in order to access these games. Also, all games including the live games are available across all devices, something that makes Playtech stand out from the rest as for a long time they were the only provider that had this option. The live dealer games can be enjoyed on all devices whether a laptop, mobile or tablet, and can be accessed via any operating system including Android and iOS.

Playtech casinos also maintain a very safe and secure environment, at the same time using third party companies to ensure that their games are operating fairly at all times. The certificate to this effect is usually found at the bottom of the main page on any of the casino sites which use Playtech software. This stringent adherence to gaming fairness has given Playtech a well-deserved reputation of being reliable and one of the safest softwares to use.

The history of Playtech

Playtech was developed in 1999 by Teddy Sagi, an Israeli businessman. From the very beginning, he had big plans for his business with hopes and plans to develop and produce the best software possible, beating all that was available at that time. During the year 2000, the company proceeded to perform in-depth analysis into the online gaming world and then finally began the creation of their own software at the end of the year.

In 2001, the company made a major deal with an already existing online operator. Just a single year after that, they were able to launch their software in a European online casino. By 2003, the company was fast becoming one of the leading software providers in the industry and it was during this time that the live casino software was released. Soon after they released Bingoland, their productive bingo network, and from then on they did not look back.


2004 was a major leap in fortunes for the company as it marked the release of their iPoker network. This network has since become the largest poker network in the world and is used by many gambling operators, casinos and bookies around the world. The software is constantly improved, and has become one of the most user-friendly systems available.

By 2005 the company was immersed in creating their own mobile gaming platform. At this mobile phones were relatively new, but a number of the big operators nevertheless wanted to offer the players this option. In a similar fashion to the rest of their products, Playtech continues to improve upon their initial technology in order to provide the best products they possibly can.

Since then, Playtech has continued to grow, branching out its business, making new links with other companies and providers as well as adding additional licenses to their already vast agreements.

The software company continues to go from strength to strength, and though they do have a good live casino platform available, their true forte is in the poker genre. No matter which section of the gaming world though, Playtech strives to succeed. With its continuous growth, the entire gaming industry continues to benefit.
