Cryptologic Review


Cryptologic is an award-winning company and one of the leading software developers of online casino games. They are originally based in Toronto, Canada but now have corporate headquarters in Europe. The company was founded in 1995 and in 1996, they went live on the internet with their first online casino, InterCasino and they were the first software developer to offer multi-player games in their casino suite and one of the first ‘play-for-money’ online casinos. That same year they became publicly traded on the Canadian Dealer Network (CDN). By 1998, Cryptologic commenced trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They also offer software both in a download version and as an instant play Java version.

In 1999, Cryptologic signed William Hill to their list of licensees. William Hill is a major UK-based gaming brand that has been around since 1934 and the first land-based operator to set up a casino online. A few years later they signed Littlewoods Gaming, another major UK gaming brand that was founded back in 1923. They were one of the first companies to launch casino games based on the popular computer game Bejeweled as well as super-hero characters such as The Hulk and X-Men from Marvel Comics that gained really high popularity. They were granted a patent in the UK for The Millionaire’s Club, which was one of Cryptologic’s innovations. Millionaire’s Club record-breaking jackpot was later won in 2006. The game has made more instant millionaires than any other online game in history. 2006 was also the same year that Cryptologic partnered up with Playboy Entertainment to launch Playboy’s new online casino.

Cryptologic has also secured the rights to develop games based on Marvel Comics characters Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four. The general public loved those kind of slot games and they continued developing them since.

Betsafe in Scandinavia and the Dutch-government owned Holland Casino are just an example of how Cryptologic managed to branch out in their years of progress. They also began to branch out in the Asian market by signing Memorandum of Understanding with Brilliance Technology Co. and 568 Network, Inc.

Their software has extremely realistic graphics and sound effects and with variety of over 200 different games available in various casinos across the web and the company is constantly in development for new games, they are surely a software company that is worth paying attention to. Many of their casinos are popular because of high sign-up bonus with a player’s deposit as well as generous monthly bonuses.

Cryptologic’s software are regarded as some of the most trusted and secure casinos on the web. Cryptologic powers one of the Top Five poker rooms available on the web and their games are offered in multiple languages and currencies and with over 60 billion dollars in transactions so far, they are surely a safe choice for every player.

After over a decade amidst an ever-growing market, Cryptologic is still one of the leading innovators of online gaming software. They are also known to produce some of the award-winning line of games that include: the ever-popular Frightmare series of slot machines, Rags to Riches, and the Rapid Fire jackpot series. These slots have been known to trigger their jackpots more frequently than any other developer’s casino games and that’s why in 2008, Cryptologic was awarded Gambling Online Magazine’s Top Casino Software award.
