Pragmatic Play is the latest developer to jump on the Mexican themed slot bandwagon, with this release, called Chilli Heat, that’s predictably using a chilli inspired theme.

Santa’s name might not show a lot of imagination on Pragmatic Play’s part, but it’s the actual content inside that is more important here. You’re obviously looking at a classic Christmas themed slot machine, the kind of title where Santa is shown alongside elves or reindeer.

Gold Rush is available through Pragmatic Play and the slot machine has been designed to offer a gold mining theme, a topic that has actually seen a fair amount of use over the years, so it’s a surprising choice.

  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25

Panda’s Fortune is a recent release from Pragmatic Play, where the developer chose to create a Chinese style slot machine, with the Panda Bear being in the center of everyone’s attention. Though it’s not a very rare theme, the quality of the design is high and might just make up for that.

Vegas Nights
  • Release: Sept 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.03%
  • Reels: 25
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

Vegas Nights could only be a fun game, given the kind of theme that it sports, based on what happens in one of the most popular tourist destinations in United States. Las Vegas has gambling obviously, so that’s what the focus of the game is on, along with show girls and flashy buildings. It’s not a new theme, but this game does it better than most.

Wild Spells
Wild Spells
  • Release: Sept 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.4%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Wild Spells will give you a magic inspired atmosphere that works very well for it, and which relies on the images of a couple of beautiful witches for its major symbols. You are getting a good design here, coupled with some interesting features, in a fairly typical mix for Pragmatic Play, its developer.

Diamond Strike
  • Release: Sept 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.48%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 15
  • Mobile: Yes

Diamond Strike is one of those games where you’re getting a classic theme and a mix of modern features. The combination isn’t one that I find particularly appealing, but a game that pays well is still worth playing, no matter what kind of theme it sports. Diamond Strike was created by Pragmatic Play.

Queen of Atlantis
Queen of Atlantis
  • Release: Aug 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.41%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 1024
  • Mobile: Yes

Queen of Atlantis gives us a theme that has seen a lot of use in time, with more than a dozen slot machines that I know of using Atlantis in their title. This particular slot machine is offered by Pragmaitc Play.

Caishen’s Gold
Caishen’s Gold
  • Release: Aug 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 97.08%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

In the case of Caishen’s Gold, we’re not looking at just any old Chinese themed slot machine. Pragmatic Play chose the Chinese god of prosperity himself as the central figure in this particular game, and he plays a major role in it. The game that was created here has wild symbols on some of the reels, there are scatters, bonus games with huge jackpots of up to $190,000, plus free spins. The slot gives you 5 reels and 243 chances to win each round.

Pixie Wings
Pixie Wings
  • Release: Jul 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.51%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

Pixie Wings belongs to the fantasy genre, and it will show on its reels images of beautiful pixie people for the most part, along with things like magic trees. The pretty graphics are an obvious thing to look forward to in this slot machine, but there are others as well. The game’s designer is a company called Pragmatic Play.

8 Dragons
8 Dragons
  • Release: Jun 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.37%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

8 Dragons’ title reflects its theme very well. On one hand, we have the number 8, which the Chinese consider lucky. On the other hand, we got the Asian Dragons, which are also typical for the culture of this country and tend to look different than the ones that are mentioned in Europe’s legends. Pragmatic Play created this game and it’s one of their many slots that are based on something that comes from China.

888 Dragons
888 Dragons
  • Release: Jun 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.84%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 1
  • Mobile: Yes

888 Dragons is definitely not the first Chinese themed slot machine that Pragmatic Play has offered, not even the first one with a focus on Asian style dragons, but what sets it apart from their other releases is that it’s a 3 reel game which uses only 3 symbols on its reels.

Jurassic Giants
Jurassic Giants
  • Release: Jun 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.03%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 4096
  • Mobile: Yes

Jurassic Giants has some modern touches to it feature wise, but if you look at its theme it goes back hundreds of thousands of years, to cave people, mammoths and even to dinosaurs. The theme itself doesn’t make much sense, since dinosaurs and cave people were not contemporaries, but a lot can be forgiven of a slot machine that is fun to play. The creator of Jurassic Giants is a developer called Pragmatic Play.

Gold Train
Gold Train
  • Release: May 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 97.16%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 3
  • Mobile: Yes

While seeing a train themed slot machine is not something that would surprise me, getting one which has a classic 3 reel layout does make things more interesting. Gold Train has been designed by Pragmatic Play, a developer that has created other interesting classic slots in the past, with higher than average RTP’s just like this one gets.

Wolf Gold
Wolf Gold
  • Release: Apr 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.01%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Pragmatic Play’s Wolf Gold is a game where they’ve been inspired by the wildlife of North America, with a focus on the wolf, obviously. The game will probably remind you of a number of Native American themed slots, but it has other things going for it as well. Wolf Gold gives the player a very good top payout, in the form of a fixed Mega jackpot of up to $125,000.

Panther Queen
Panther Queen
  • Release: Apr 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.5%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Panther Queen is a fairly impressive slot machine from Pragmatic Play, but its strengths don’t come from its theme or graphics, being more of a matter of the payouts which can be achieved. The theme of the game is based on the jungle and its queen apparently.

3 Kingdoms – Battle of Red Cliffs
3 Kingdoms – Battle of Red Cliffs
  • Release: Apr 2017

  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25

3 Kingdoms has been designed by Pragmatic Play and it is a game that is based on some part of China’s history by the looks of it. The game features the armies and warriors of three separate kingdoms that are about to meet up in battle. The slot has a couple of pros to its name, that should make it a player favorite.

Irish Charms
Irish Charms
  • Release: Mar 2017
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.96%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 3

  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Queen of Gold might not sound like it at first, but it’s a slot machine that is based on Ancient Egypt and shows off on the reels mostly images of gods that were worshipped back then. It’s got some decent features and graphics to show off, and you can thank Pragmatic Play for creating this slot machine. You have here a slot machine with 5 standard reels and a 6th one reserved for multipliers and Jokers.

888 Gold

  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

888 Gold is your regular classic slot machine, the twist in its case being the use of the Chinese theme for the design. It’s a modern looking 3 reel slot, which is not that easy to find, though things have been improving on this front lately. The creator of the slot is Pragmatic Play.

Hercules: Son of Zeus

Pragmatic Play is a company that’s been operating since 2007, so it’s got the first 10 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 2007. The company has grown significantly over the course of the last decade, and right now they have over 80 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 10 years since it was founded, the fact that they offer 80+ 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 80+ 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.
