As the traditions and culture of the internet entertainment is not particularly well-established in Estonia, the web-based games are not very common here either. Still, there is a decent number of players who polish their skills in the gaming environments in Europe and in the US, and even claim impressive wins now and then.
The most popular online game of all times is online casino. Also for Playtech, online casino is the first and the most important product so far. Online casino works similarly to the real casino: you can make bets in a virtual roulette or blackjack table, play on virtual slot machines, and so on. The key element here is definitely the design of the games – the main principles of the casino games are very similar, so the attractiveness of the game becomes the decisive factor. Playtech’s vast portfolio of casino games includes, for example, the games such as the Gladiator, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and many others.
One of the games with the growing popularity is live poker – real-time poker games and tournaments where the players from different corners of the world gather around one virtual game table. It’s an entertainment which can be considered as pure fun, but there is also a distinctive group of players who use their good poker skills to make their living. The live poker network of Playtech is the world’s largest independent poker network which hosts up to 30 000 players at a time.
Bingo, which is known as the game of housewives, is also extremely popular in its online version. The real-time chatting plays an important role in the online bingo, making bingo an attractive type of social entertainment.
Playtech pays great attention to innovation, delivering a continuously growing range of products and platforms. In addition to the traditional web interface, Playtech games have also been available for mobile phones for several years now already. Thanks to the attractive visual solution and the independence from the abrupt GSM connection, the mobile games provide as good gaming experience as the web-based games. Since 2009, Playtech portfolio includes the PlaytechTV trademark which offers the definitive live solution – live casino dealer tables and TV game shows, broadcast to both TV and Web. Another product that was added to Playtech product range in 2009 is PlaytechSport, offering virtual sports betting.
As the product development and production of the games of Videobet and Playtech work on the same principles, the Videobet product range consists largely of the casino games familiar from the Playtech environment.
