Playtech was founded in 1999. Currently, it employs approximately 550 people in various parts of the world who mainly work in research and development. Its parent company is based in the BVI, while its headquarters are on the Isle of Man. Since 2006, the company has been listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London.
Since then the company has pioneered a number of promotions and awards for its players. They are now recognized in the online gaming industry.
These include VIP programs where most loyal customers can receive additional bonuses, and a system of cash back and comp points where points earned can be converted into real money.
Some card games work with a real dealer pulling the cards in a live image that is broadcast instantly and streamed to all players at the table. In multi-player tables, you can communicate with others through chat.
Playtech offers software for casinos, poker rooms and bingo. Currently they are one of the largest companies in the sector. One of their characteristics is their presence in the Asian market. In fact Playtech casinos are present in several Asian countries. Their software has an excellent reputation for its reliability, its graphics and its ease of use. The slots are slightly inferior to those of other software vendors, but they are the leaders in games and so-called soft games (games that are based solely on chance).
Playtech is a game developer, but equally concerned with the problem of compulsive gambling: the game must be seen as entertainment. The company has launched a system for identifying compulsive gambling behavior, to offer direct assistance to these players and guide them to specialized associations. Playtech has received official certification by a number of highly respected authorities in the industry. This includes the evaluation of the RNG (Radom Number Generator) TST (Technical Systems Testing) and by ABB, a British Accounting Association.
Remember though, it is always advisable to conduct a thorough investigation of every casino before making a real money deposit, regardless of the software vendor.
