You’ll find Playtech to be great software – but if you’re from the USA, you won’t be allowed to play.
Playtech is one of the top online gaming softwares. They were founded in 1999 and they employee over 170 people. 2/3 of their employees are in research and development, which means Playtech is almost always launching new games. This is an innovative software company, and the casinos who are powered by their software reflect that innovation in their realistic graphics and sound effects.
It should be noted that Playtech does not allow U.S. players. Take a look at this page for online casinos taking U.S. players.

Vegas Red internet casino runs on the Playtech platform. This casino offers a brilliant bonus program where you get an extra $888 over your first 4 deposits. And they’re proud to offer the entire line of Playtech progressive jackpots. Progressive games like SafeCracker and Gold Rally will keep you entertained for hours as you try to win the big jackpot. And if you’re a fan of table games, the realistic Playtech blackjack and roulette games are nothing short of stunning.
Golden Palace is perhaps the most recognizable name in the online casino industry, in no small part due to their clever and sometimes controversial marketing. But not only are they the most recognizable, they’re also one of the most reputable and fun places to play online. Golden Palace offers a tremendous 300% matching funds deposit on your first deposit of up to $100. That’s like instantly quadrupling your bankroll.
Casino Tropez is another well-known Playtech casino, in large part because of the beautiful live dealers who make games like blackjack, roulette and craps available in a live format including chat functionality. They’re also well known for having one of the lowest wagering requirements in the business. AND they have a payout percentage of 96%.
A final word about Playtech–they’ve got terrific slot games available. Microgaming gets all the praise and kudos in this industry for their slots, and justifiably so, but the slot games at Playtech are terrific. I know a few people who actually prefer Playtech’s slots to Microgaming’s. My suggestion of course is to try both softwares for yourself. Variety is the spice of life, in gambling as well as other endeavors.
