Playtech was founded in 1999. Since then the company has produced a number of important changes that are now recognised features of the online gaming industry. These include VIP ratings – where loyal customers receive extra bonuses, comp points – a cash back system where points are earned by the amount of times a game is played. These points can then be converted into money. And, perhaps their most important innovation of all, live-dealer software. This enables casinos to use a real, live dealer and equipment for table games (Blackjack, Roulette etc). Via video streaming technology the customer can play against the casino without relying on RNG (Random Number Generating) technology.
Playtech offers full support to its licensees. From software to backroom management to customer support, the company prides itself on providing an honest and reliable service. It is interesting to note that Playtech provides compulsive gambling recognition technology to its casinos, thereby showing that their caring attitude reaches the end user.

Bingo has always been a social gathering as much as a game. Playtech aims to duplicate the warm, friendly atmosphere of the traditional bingo hall. Chat and player interaction are therefore major features of Playtech's bingo software.
- Each bingo hall has its own chat master.
- Chat facilities include player's pictures, emotions and private chat.
- Entertaining 3D graphics.
- Easy and intuitive playability.
Playtech had received official certification by a number of well respected, internationally recognised gaming authorities. These include RNG evaluation from TST (Technical Systems Testing) and ABB – a British bookmakers association.
Remember, it is always advisable to thoroughly investigate any casino before you make a real money deposit, no matter who provides the software.
How to tell if Playtech games are the real deal
LCB has caught out a few online casinos with unlicensed Playtech games, especially operators that target Russian players and have bitcoin as a currency option but it is also worth mentioning that there are a few unscrupulous suppliers out there providing unsuspecting operators with unlicensed games. We have done several Rogue Reports about this as well as added a dedicated Authorized Software page where we have outlined each software and provided a way to check if the games are in fact licensed and legit.
