Playtech was founded in 1999 by entrepreneurs from the casino, software engineering and multi-media industries. The first Playtech online casino was launched in 2001. In 2003 live dealer gaming was introduced and in 2005 mobile gaming was introduced. In 2006 Playtech’s shares started trading in the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. But later that year Playtech had to leave the American market because of the UIGEA. Thereafter Playtech has concentrated on the European and Asian online gaming markets. In the last two years Playtech has formed partnerships to consolidate its position in the online gaming industry. It services over 75 licensees today.

Playtech offers over 370 online casino games covering all games categories. In the slots games category it offers classic slots from one to five paylines. However the more popular range is the video slots. In this category Playtech offers unique eight payline slots. The symbols are arranged in a 3 by 3 matrix and the paylines run horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The progressive jackpot slot Beach Life that has paid over a million dollars in single hits several times is very popular at Playtech online casinos. The latest trend in Playtech slots games is the branded games from Marvel Movies and MGM. The main table games are blackjack and roulette. The other table games include baccarat, craps and Caribbean Stud Poker. Some unique games in this category are Stravaganza and Tequila Poker.

Playtech offers two unique games categories. After exiting the American online gaming market Playtech focussed on the Asian market. As a result it offers a category called Asian Games at its online casinos. Most of these games are variants of Mahjong, but there is a Pachinko game, which a Japanese pinball type game, and Sic Bo, which is a Chinese dice game similar to craps. The Arcade Games category has many games that are mostly the fixed odds type. Popular games in this category are the Hi Lo type of games and the virtual sports games.
