Playtech is one of the true veteran organizations in the world of online casino software, and has developed a reputation as a "do-all" crew that has brought its expertise into a lot of different areas. What they bring to the table is experience and a reputation for excellence that makes them a "keeper."
Playtech is a bit different from some of its casino software competitors in that it engages in a lot of different pursuits, spanning the entire spectrum of gaming. In additions to casinos, they have become involved in bingo platforms, online sportsbooks, poker rooms and casino games that can be played over mobile devices. They reach out into a lot of places. That having been said, they do not produce as vast a selection of casino games as does rival developer Microgaming, but no one can question that there is a certain emphasis on quality.
This is an organization that has been around for a long time; in fact, Playtech's doors have been open since 1999. They contracted with their first casino client in 2002, and they have gathered a client list that is very prestigious indeed, with names like William Hill, Paddy Power and Bet365. They were one of the very first to start work in the mobile space, having done that back in 2005, and they are far ahead of most companies for what they can do with casino games on all kinds of mobile devices, even cell phones that are not all that advanced. One of the more significant deals the company has made is a licensing agreement with Marvel Entertainment that was executed in 2008. That is what has produced the "Marvel Slots" collection that Playtech is known for by many. There is also a deal in place with Paramount Pictures for more themed slots games.
Playtech's respectability level is unchallenged; in fact, the company is listed on the London Stock Exchange. They were the first to market with a live game that was broadcast on television, and they are generally considered to be the leaders when it comes to the incorporation of 3D graphics in their games.
Among those included in the Marvel Slots group are The Incredible Hulk, X-Men and Elektra, and they have also produced slots based on very popular movies such as the Pink Panther and Rocky franchises. They produce a wide range of variations for table games, most notably blackjack, where you can play Blackjack Switch, 21 Duel Blackjack or Blackjack Surrender, and they are part of a very impressive jackpot network that is comprised of all their client casino, which allows for huge jackpots not only in slots but in table games as well.
