Sweet Bonanza Xmas
  • Release: Nov 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.51%
  • Reels: 6

  • Mobile: Yes

Though it’s a game with fruit and gemstone style graphics, Sweet Bonanza Xmas will feature winter themed images as well, and so the setting is definitely somewhere at the North Pole, during the Christmas season. We find sweet graphics indeed, and they’re mixed with some unique features, which should make the game attractive, even more so than you’d expect based on its potential.

Pragmatic Play’s new game will once again take us to the Middle East, and tell us about Aladdin, his story and adventures. It’s a gorgeous release, so it’s not as much of a problem that it’s a very common theme. It also does quite a few things right, and delivers high volatility, but not with big enough payouts to warrant the risk that you take with it.

A new bee-themed slot machine is about to be released, and it’s a Pragmatic Play design, going by the name of Honey Honey Honey. The game seems to be decided to let you know that it’s a honey/bee themed slot, but the graphics will do an excellent job with that as well. Expect a game with pretty graphics, cartoon-style and fun to look at.

Fire Strike
  • Release: Sept 2019

  • Reels: 5

Fire Strike is all about delivering big jackpots, and thanks to Pragmatic Play’s efforts, it’s a medium volatility release, which is capable of paying big, though graphics wise it doesn’t do much of an effort to impress.

Tree of Riches
  • Release: Oct 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 1
  • Mobile: Yes

A game which Pragmatic Play is preparing for release, Tree of Riches is dedicated to the popular money tree from Chinese culture, and it’s designed as well as any modern slot machine. Despite the fact that you’re actually looking at a classic title, it has the graphics to make itself liked and even a couple of decent features.

Pragmatic Play’s John Hunter series continues with a new game, one where our adventurer is going to Ancient Egypt. Tomb of the Scarab Queen will feature the typical Cleopatra inspired graphics, but while some sides of it might not be exciting, there are also excellent rewards to be had.

  • RTP: 96.52%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 5

One more classic slot machine is available, it’s called  Super Joker and it is a release from Pragmatic Play. Expect a medium volatility title, with plenty of classic symbols and average top payouts, but there are also modern features inside, which most 3-reel titles will not offer.

Vegas Adventures
  • Release: July 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.52%
  • Reels: 5

Vegas Adventures, one of the new Pragmatic Play releases, appears to be designed in cooperation with Mr Green Casino, as the game relies on their mascot to be its main character. The connection to Las Vegas, the luxury that’s shown, as well as the gambling related images, are all expected from a game which is inspired by this city.

The spicy chilli pepper is once again the hero that we’re all looking up to, in a slot machine which Pragmatic Play is preparing to release. It’s called Hot Chilli, and it’s an unusual 3-reel game, which features mostly Asian style graphics, even though it’s not an area of the world that we associate with the spicy pepper.

Vampires vs Wolves
  • Release: Aug 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.49%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

The classic battle of the night creatures takes place in Vampires vs Wolves, a game which is going to be available at casinos where Pragmatic Play is present. The game has both pros and cons, several features that I wouldn’t mind triggering, and a story which is quite common for a slot machine.

  • Release: July 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 7,776

The latest adventure themed game from Pragmatic Play is called John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure, and it’s obvious immediately where the action is going to take place. Inside, we find a slot with a pay ways system, with high volatility and an explorer which travels to South America in search of treasures. Who knows, maybe he will share them with you.

The Great Chicken Escape
  • Release: Aug 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Sporting a hilarious design, this slot machine is inspired by a film which aired in 1963, called The Great Escape. We’re seeing the chicken variant for it, with a rooster and four chickens receiving the major roles, and we follow them as they’re trying to escape from a prison camp which has dogs as guards.

Medusa Strike
  • Release: June 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 97.08%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

The story of Medusa has inspired quite a few slot machines over the years, something that has also happened with other creatures and legends from around the world. Medusa Strike is a Pragmatic Play game, one that mixes a high RTP with fixed jackpots and average-sized regular wins.

Celtic Gold
  • Release: Sept 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.53%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

With the Irish theme being such a popular choice in slot machines, Celtic Gold needs to do quite a bit in other areas, in order to stand out in today’s market. It’s not going to do much in that regard though, and though it has a good RTP and average payouts, I don’t think that Pragmatic Play has a winner on their hands with this one. Keep reading to learn more about it though.

Monkey Warrior
  • Release: July 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

The story of the monkey god has been quite the popular theme for slot machines lately, obviously in each case being a Chinese style game that we’re seeing. Monkey Warrior is Pragmatic Play’s attempt at a slot machine with this story, a game with modern graphics and a predictable line-up of symbols, as well as several features from their arsenal, which often manage to make a slot fun to play.

5 Lions Gold
  • Release: Jun 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play

  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

5 Lions Gold, coming from Pragmatic Play, is a release which offers high volatility, ways to win and a Chinese theme that’s fairly well designed. The game doesn’t stand out if you look at graphics/theme alone, but it has its good sides as well, and you get to find out all about them from our review. This is a sequel for another Pragmatic Play release, and in the Gold version we get a jackpot as well, among other things.

Caishens Cash
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

In a setting which we’ve seen a lot of times in the past, inspired by Chinese fortunes and culture, Caishen’s Cash is offering excellent payouts, good features and high quality graphics, just what I’ve come to expect from Pragmatic Play.

Pragmatic Play is a company that’s been operating since 2015, so it’s got over the 8 years of its life behind it already. It’s also one of the developers that have managed to gain a big foothold in the industry, their games being currently available at around 100 different online casinos, including some of the biggest brands. They currently have 250 employees, living in countries from all over the world.

Pragmatic Play certifies all its games through an auditor called Technical Systems Testing, and so you can rest assured that their content is safe for the use of players. To the same end, they have a gaming license obtained in the Netherlands Antilles, from the Curacao jurisdiction, which is very well known in the casino industry. The content they offer players is accessible on all platforms, including PC, Mac and mobiles. Their content is translated into 22 languages, it’s designed with HTML5 and is available in 78 countries.

History

Pragmatic Play was founded in Malta, a jurisdiction from the European Union, back in 2015. The company has grown significantly over the course of the last decade, and right now they have over 100 table games, slots and other types of titles in their collection. They’ve also managed to grow to a size where they have over 250 people employed, in countries from all over the world. They seem to be doing very well for themselves, and I expect them to continue growing at the same rate in the future. They’ve been acquired in 2016, by IBID Group.

Pragmatic Play Casino Games

Considering that the company has about 9 years since it was founded, the fact that they offer 100+ games is pretty good. As many others do, the biggest focus of the company is on the video slots, the category of games that has the most titles to offer. The other four categories that are listed on their site include Classic Slots, Table Games, Video Poker and Other Games.

For the Classic Slots category, there are only four titles available, but on average they’re miles ahead of the majority of the 3 reel games that you’re going to find on the market right now. These four games are called Diamonds are Forever, 888 Dragons, 888 Gold and Irish Charms. They don’t have very exciting themes, but most of them are not focused on the classic icons at least.

They’ve started designing their collection of Table Games as well, including three titles in this category for now. They will give you a chance to experience their idea of a game of Baccarat, of Multihand Blackjack or of Roulette Crystal.

The Video Poker category holds a single game for now, but I’m sure they have plans to expand it further. The game that they started with is the one called Jacks of Better.

Finally, there is also a category called Other Games, where the only two titles available are called Keno and Go! Monkey.

I’ve left the most consistent category of all for last. The Video Slots collection is the one where you’re going to discover most of the 100+ titles available from Pragmatic Play. Just like their other games, they’re designed in HTML5, which makes them all accessible on mobile devices, on Mac or PC, and all this directly from the browser. They seem to be focused quite heavily on China and on other common themes, but I’ve discovered some interesting ideas among those themes as well. Besides titles like 8 Dragons, Caishen’s Gold or Queen of Gold, there are also more interesting slots like Pixie Wings, Romeo and Juliet, Mighty Kong and The Catfather (I and II).

Graphics

Companies that get their start in the online market seem to have an advantage over those that make the switch from the land based side of the casino business. The graphics tend to be better in their slot machines, and the newer the developer the better the look of their games on average. It’s certainly the case with Pragmatic Play, a developer whose slot machines I found quite enticing. No matter what game of theirs I looked at, I enjoyed the design, and that says a lot about what you can expect from them. Some of my favorites, in terms of visuals were slots like Aladdin’s Treasure and The Catfather II.

Features

I’ve noticed that the majority of the games from Pragmatic Play will have three types of features to offer, though they’re going to be the usual ones that most modern slots have. The most common mix of features will include a wild, a scatter symbol and a bonus symbol. The last two I mentioned will typically bring free spins and a bonus game, respectively. There are other options as well, sometimes without the bonus game, but maybe with a multiplier instead. If there was anything to complain about here, it would be that there isn’t enough innovation in this area. Still, their games do provide you with plenty of features, so they’re still quite enjoyable.

Payouts

Some slot machines from Pragmatic Play might give you a lot of lines, multipliers and payouts of up to 1,000x, while others will go the other way, and provide you with rewards that multiply your line bet by up to 5,000x or 10,000x. Bonus games can sometimes give you even better rewards than those from regular combinations.
