PlayTech Slots

March 27, 2014


At the turn of the century, there didn't seem to be much room in the online casino industry for yet another software platform. But then PlayTech came along and proved that they had something new to offer. And this isn't just hyperbole; PlayTech's impact on software for bingo, casino games and poker has been significant. In addition to powering some of the best soft casinos online, Playtech powers the electronic machines in brick and mortar casinos all over the world. Despite this presence in Vegas, PlayTech has not powered online USA casinos since the UIGEA.

PlayTech Slots

Some of PlayTech's most high-profile casino clients include Grand Online Casino and Golden Palace. A big reason for Playtech's success has been their ability to excel at a wide range of casino games. However, one area in which they have been particularly productive is in the development of slot machines. PlayTech now offers well over 500 virtual slots machines, which is truly astounding and far more than any other platform currently offers.

As you'd expect from 500+ soft slots, PlayTech offers an impressive array of options, features and jackpots. They also offer a deluxe auto-play mode on each machine, and although it's not as advanced as the Microgaming auto-play feature, it's quite sophisticated. PlayTech also has an excellent coin size range, typically from $0.01 to $5, and high maximum bets. Bonus features include wild symbols, wild multipliers, scatter symbols, bonus games on the reels and bonus games on the second screen. PlayTech does do a good job of theme and symbol set diversity, but in an effort to develop so many machines, some of these themes and symbol sets seem poorly conceived.

You can see the following categories of the online slot machine at the Lobby of PlayTech Casinos:

  • Classic Single Line Slot Machines
  • Classic Multi Line Slot Machines
  • Video Multi Spin Slot Machines
  • Video Multi Line Slot Machines

Also PlayTech offers the unique slot macines:

  • Progressive Slot Machines
  • Dollars Ball Progressive Slot Machines
  • Fixed Odds Slot Machines
  • Novel Slot Machines (These slots machines are available only PlayTech casinos)

PlayTech Promotions & Banking

PlayTech is simple excellent when it comes to their banking options. They offer a comprehensive range that even includes little-used options, they don't have any unnecessary fees and they go out of their way to make things easy on the player. PlayTech has a diverse casino clientele, so the promotion structure among them tends to vary quite a bit. However, there are many PlayTech no-deposit casinos available, and PlayTech casinos have a reputation for strong promotions including free entry into slots tournaments and other slots-oriented events.
