A platform that caters for cultural differences in gaming.
A group of entrepreneurs = from the casino, multimedia and software engineering industries collaborated in 1999 to create Playtech who set up their headquarters in The Isle of Man, (a British territory and reputable licensing jurisdiction) where they continue to operate from today, over a decade later.
After just three years, a deal was clinched with a major European land-based casino that soon developed a new online casino using Playtech software. The following years saw the successful launch of Playtech’s Live Dealer Casino, as well as a Bingo network, iPoker network and Mobile Gaming. Playtech have grown into a company who employ just over 1000 staff.
