Playtech, a provider of online casino gaming software solutions, was established in 1999 by an enterprising team of software engineers, multimedia experts, and businessmen, but was licensed only a couple of years later. Today, it has in its portfolio a variety of products and services related to live casino, videobet, mobile gaming, land-based casinos, poker gaming, and bingo gaming. The company became a publicly traded firm in 2006 and expanded into regulated jurisdictions such as Spain, Estonia, Italy, and Serbia.
Here are some reasons why casino enthusiasts are fond of Playtech:
- The firm has acquired prominent companies such as Virtue Fusion, UK’s largest supplier of online bingo games; Ash Gaming, one of the best creators of online casino games; the affiliate marketing specialist PTTS; the gaming aggregator GPT; and UK’s leading supplier of sports betting services Geneity.
- Players need just one account to enjoy various gaming services at Playtech Casinos.
- Playtech’s products can be either completely integrated or used as standalone products.
- Playtech gives top priority to complying with gambling regulations. Although the first to enter freshly regulated markets, it steers clear of grey markets. This makes Playtech casinos 100% safe and secure.
- Well-known operators such as Betfair, Bet365, William Hill, Sky, and Paddy Power use Playtech software.

Progressive Jackpot Overview
Playtech offers a large collection of progressive slots, which come with wild icons, scatter wins, affordable betting ranges, and other innovative features. Playtech offers three different types of progressive games.
Marvel Slots – Based on the famous Marvel comics and movies, these slots feature free spins, multipliers, bonus games, expanding wilds, wild reels, sticky wilds, scatter wins, random wilds, and four-tiered progressive jackpots.
Dollar Ball Progressive Slots – Though the least noticed of Playtech progressive slots, the Dollar Ball slots are unique to Playtech-powered casinos. The main slot has nothing to do with the progressive jackpot. In fact, the progressive jackpot is attached to a side game that can be activated by placing a side bet.
