Playtech's European dealer studio platform
are one of the true online casino software giants. They formed in 1999 and
listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2006. Headquartered in the Isle of
Man and with offices around the world, they now boast a staff of just under a
thousand personnel, most of whom are dedicated to developing new products.
Product range is extensive with RNG casino games, poker, bingo, mobile casino
and live games. Historical returns are audited by
Technical Systems Testing Inc.
They operate 2 distinct live gaming platforms...one streamed out of Asia and
the other streamed out of Europe.
Their European dealer studio was launched at the start of 2009. Already
a bunch of prominent licensees have adopted the new platform, and some who were
running the Asian platform have migrated across (eg
BetFred). It incorporates
the existing intuitive game skin and combines it with a high quality video
stream from the new dealer room located in Riga, Latvia. The dealers are
European and the studio is a definite improvement on the Asian studio in terms
Extensive. Although relatively new, the number of available
dealers and tables
available round the clock here is impressive. Unlike some platforms, this
is a true 24/7 offering across all games.
Look and feel:
Outstanding - clean, intuitive and feature packed with great dealer studio
ambience, dealer audio and impressive video stream. Recently added full
screen mode (below right) allows for crystal clear, large video presentation without
loss of any game/interface features.
Large range of great licensee casinos -
William Hill, bet365, Euro Grand,
BetFred to name a few.
Solid and expanding but not as comprehensive as the
Asia dealer platform...
Casino Hold'em - a variation on Texas Hold'em,
here you are playing against the house. You can fold or call
after the flop.
