Playtech Games Portfolio
Playtech offers a complete suite of casino, poker and bingo games as well as
software for land based gaming terminals.
Playtech bingo solutions are in the main provided through the Network
Members of the Bingoland network and this provides for shared jackpots and
game play as well as a range of social tools such as instant messaging and
access to ancillary gaming opportunities.
Each bingo web site is differentiated so users see a different set of
graphics and audio-visual cues however they are noticeably all of a similar
common themed format.
Some operators with a sufficiently robust industry presence are operating
sites under an Independent Licenses and players on these sites are not
"shared" with others (operators using this route to market include Betfred).
Playtech poker compliments the bingo and casino arm of the business with a
network of online poker rooms providing a similar user experience and web
environment. The business division is branded as iPoker with common
software and administration operating behind uniquely branded and positioned
websites. This allows for highly individualistic web sites and
fundamentally differs in the approach taken by the bingo and casino arm.
The Playtech online casino network has some of the largest knows online
casinos including some prominent UK brands. The progressive jackpot network
links together thirteen jackpot games and all the licensees contribute to
the pool. Playtech licensees have access to a game suite of over 130
Playtech scratch cards.
