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.
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 120+ 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 120+ 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).
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.
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.
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.
