Their main targeted audience are land-based casinos that wish to launch their own websites. Playtech has grown to over 550 personnel and counting which is really impressive for a gambling gaming software company. The company has offices scattered across the globe and over eighty percent of its staff is dedicated to research and development of new games and technologies. Playtech headquarters are in the British Virgin Islands – located on the Isle of Man.

Right after company went live, they launched some amazing games as Club Dice Casino, which featured the version 1.1 of their client software. The software’s features included comp points system, VIP player clubs, real time gaming, multi-platform compatibility as well as multiplayers mods. Their software’s are really well covered from all aspects and they are known to take care of their players opinions and suggestions.

In early years of their existence they launched projects like: City Club Casino, Swiss Casino, and Brandy Casino and few more. In 2002, Playtech launched another successful casino, Casino Solei, the first full licensed European land-based casino with great success those projects brought, they decided to open up few more casinos like: Tropez casino, Gold Gate Casino, Kiwi Casino, and Sterling House Casino. 

When 2002 came by, Playtech made industry news when they signed up with Sunny Group and Intercontinental Casinos, both leading online operators. The two groups had previously been with third party software providers when they decided to switch to Playtech. 

Throughout the years, Playtech has become most popular for their amazing Bingo software’s like Ruby Bingo. The software did a good job of preserving the community aspect of the game with one of the best user-friendly interfaces on market back then.

After success with bingo projects, they launched iPoker network. The software was the first to feature a choice of both 2D top-view and 3D side-view of the cards and table and it also featured multiple tournament options, animated avatars, and advanced player collusion prevention among other tools. By 2005, Playtech has received the official Certificate of RNG Evaluation from TST, the Accredited Testing Facility which was one of the first to be accredited by the AGCC which is really impressive.

In 2008 the company was valued at 548 million British pounds and with an exclusive deal with Hard Rock Casinos and Hotels they managed to launch quite few websites that went popular in online gambling world. Playtech has received a Certificate of Prior Approval from the Alderney Gaming Control Commission (AGCC), one of the world’s highest regulated gaming jurisdictions in that year too.

Playtech’s platform is capable of being integrated with other existing operating systems and that means – fast and secure migrations, database changes and everything technically related is up to the perfect which is really important for any casino owner. Apart from being technically dominant, they have a great customer support which is available 24/7.

The company has also developed software for Mobile devices that allow online gaming for real money and they do support mult language platforms and currencies. Playtech has excluded all United States players from its properties, due to the U.S. Congress enacting new anti-gambling laws for the Internet, which may be the only downside when it comes to this company.
