Playtech are one of the largest online casino software development companies in the world.

Formed in 1999, 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 over a thousand, most of whom are dedicated to developing new products.

They operate multiple live dealer studios. Their flagship Riga, Latvia studio was launched in 2009 and has been extended since. A Romanian studio was launched early 2017 to bolster European market facing capacity and it has also since been expanded. They also operate micro studios or ‘in-casino’ streams in other EU locations –  including an installation inside bricks and mortar Casino Gran Madrid in Spain.

In the fast evolving US market they launched studio facilities in both Michigan (Southfield) and New Jersey (Atlantic City) at the end of 2021. Their Pennsylvania studio launched in November 2023.

Manila, Philippines studio has been operating since soft launch in 2003 and provides their Asian market facing games.

They offer arguably the most comprehensive suit of live dealer games catering to both European and Asian playing preferences, illustrated by the gallery of live games below.

All tables are now delivered impeccably with a consistent UI irrespective of origin. For a while there this was not the case and depending on which table table you opened, you were confronted by a completely different playing interface. Zero complaints in this regard now.

Their mobile live game delivery is also a significant improvement on early efforts which was a little buggy. No longer.

Playtech are clear number 2 in the live games space. And the gap to number 1 has been closed considerably in the last few years. Reflecting these improvements, Playtech was named Live Casino Supplier of the Year at the prestigious EGR B2B Awards in 2023.
