Cryptologic was founded in 1995 with the objective of developing encryption technologies for online financial transactions. Having succeeded in that, it used the technology in the first fully functional online casino based on its own software. This was InterCasino, which is still a leading online casino. Today, Cryptologic is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland and carries out software development through its wholly owned subsidiary WagerLogic. Cryptologic is known for its branded slots games that it has licensed to several online casinos operating on other software platforms. Since the passage of the UIGEA in 2006, Cryptologic has withdrawn from the American online gaming market.

Cryptologic offers the complete range of online casino games to its licensees. The focus is on slots games, and within that category on branded slots. Branded slots are games that are based on an existing brand and the popularity of the brand drives traffic to the games. Leading the branded slots are the Marvel Comics super hero slots, which include famous character like Spiderman, The Hulk and Elektra. Another range of branded slots is the Casual Games series, which is based on popular games like Cubis and Jenga. These games present the slots reels in different and unique topographical formats not yet replicated by other software providers. The latest additions to the branded slots are DC Comics super heroes and Paramount Pictures Hollywood blockbusters. Another special feature of Cryptologic slots is the multi-level randomly triggered progressive jackpot. These feature in the Marvel Comics and in the Paramount Pictures branded slots. Apart from these Cryptologic offers an excellent range of video slots on a wide variety of themes. Its flagship large payout progressive jackpot online slots game is Millionaires Club.

In the other casino games categories Cryptologic offers the standard variants and some unique variants as well. These unique variants have become the hallmark of Cryptologic online casinos. In blackjack there is Multi Hand Video Blackjack in which a number of player’s hands simultaneously play against a number of dealer’s hands. In video poker there is the Bonus Video Poker series in which the discarded cards are reintroduced into the deck. Another feature of Cryptologic games is that they allow very high betting limits in many card games thus attracting high rollers.

Cryptologic has one of the most user friendly software interfaces. It makes is easy for players to locate games through a list view and a thumbnail view. The lists can be sorted according to a number of useful parameters. The most convenient way of locating games is using the search engine. Summary game information is provided upfront and this makes the game selection more convenient. The most recently played games and the most frequently played games are displayed in the lobby. In addition the players can save their favourite games. The games can be directly accessed from this section without going to the games menu.

The features offered in the Cryptologic software are at least as good as the best in the casino software from other developers. Blackjack games have strategy cards, but there are some other games with this feature as well. The Auto Bet feature in many games allows players to change the bet amount in a preset pattern and this is unique to Cryptologic. The audio visual features in the slots games are excellent. Apart from introductory animated clips, some of the movie based slots run clips from the films within the games. Some of the latest slot games have the Bonus Bet feature that allows players access to additional bonus games. The Cryptologic software is available in the download and in the instant play formats. The instant play format has fewer games.
