Playtech Slots Games

Playtech Slot Machines
Playtech plc is a gambling software development company headquartered in the Isle of Man. They’re one of the oldest and best-known companies in the business, and they’ve been providing online casinos with slot machines and other online casino games since 1999. They offer what’s called a “turnkey solution”, meaning they offer software for every gambling activity a website might want to offer, including:

  • Casino games
  • Poker games
  • Bingo games
  • Sports betting
  • Lottery games
  • Live dealer casino games
  • Arcade games

This page focuses on the slot machine side of their business, which probably makes up 70% or more of their business. We start with an overview of the company and its history. We follow that up with an overview of the games they offer along with specific descriptions of slots games available via their software.
Finally, we link to full, detailed reviews of individual games—click on those links for specifics on each game. You can also find versions of many of these games available to play for free in your browser on those review pages.

Historical Overview

The company was founded in 1999 but didn’t launch its first online casino games until 2001. Since then, Playtech has become one of the largest providers of gaming software on the Internet. Many of the biggest names in the industry use Playtech to power various aspects of their operation.
Some of these companies include:

Bet365
Bet365
Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes
William Hill
William Hill

The driving force behind the creation of the company was Teddy Sagi, who went on to sell his stake in the company in 2008 for $250 million. Since then, the company has been on an aggressive acquisition campaign. Playtech has acquired the following companies and/or assets from these companies:

  • PokerStrategy.com
  • Aristocrat Lotteries
  • YoYo Games
  • Quickspin

The company now employs over 5000 people in more than a dozen different countries.

Playtech Slots Games

Like most online casino providers, Playtech slots games originally featured all original themes. In the early days of the company, they didn’t have the funds necessary to pay for licensed properties. In more recent years, Playtech has aggressively pursued a variety of intellectual property licenses, and they now offer one of the most diverse selections of games and themes in the business.
If you know little about slot machines, you might not understand exactly what we mean when we talk about intellectual property licenses. Basically, if a movie, a comic book, a novel, a band, or any other “brand” is popular with consumers, someone somewhere will want to make a slot machine game out of it.
Some of the most popular slot machine games in land-based casinos are based on intellectual property belonging to other people. Examples include:

  • Wheel of Fortune Slots – Based on the TV game show
  • Baywatch Slots – Based on the popular 1990s TV show
  • Elvis Slots – Everyone knows who “The King” was
  • Titanic Slots – Based on the James Cameron blockbuster movie

Of course, those are just popular examples of games you’ll find in casinos. They’re not necessarily games you’ll find at Playtech casinos.
But you’re in luck, because we list by category most of the licensed games available from Playtech casinos below:

Playtech Slot Machines Based on Movies

The following Playtech slot machines are based on movies:

Ace Ventura Pet Detective

Ace Ventura, Pet Detective

This 1994 movie starring Jim Carrey made him a household name. The slot machine game is pretty cool, too, with 5 reels and 243 ways to win.

Gladiator

Gladiator

Gladiator was the Best Picture winner in the year 2000. The game is as epic as the Ridley Scott/Russell Crow film.

John Wayne

John Wayne

We cheated a little bit by including John Wayne here, but he’s a legendary actor who appeared in countless movies. We can only think of one movie star who might be considered more iconic.

King Kong

King Kong

Of course, there have been multiple King Kong movies through the years. The fact is, he remains an iconic monster movie star. This game is based on the 2005 Peter Jackson version.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

Remember when we mentioned that only one movie star might be as iconic as John Wayne? We were thinking of Marilyn Monroe when we wrote that.

Monty Python’s Spamalot

Monty Python’s Spamalot

This one is based on a song from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The game has multiple bonus rounds inspired by scenes from the movie.

Rocky

Rocky

This game is based on the Sylvester Stallone franchise. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines, but we like it for the bonus games, where you get to fight Rocky opponents like Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago.

The Mummy

The Mummy

The 1999 film starred Brendan Frazier and Rachel Weisz. You can find lots of slot machines based on Egyptian themes, and even some of them have mummy themes. But this is the only one we know of based on the film.

Top Gun

Top Gun

This one was originally owned by IGT, but Playtech acquired it and converted it into a clever 243 ways game.

Playtech Games Based on Marvel Comics

Playtech seems to have an exclusive contract where they get rights to games based on Marvel Comics movies. There are enough of these that they warranted their own section separate from the main movies’ section:

Blade

Blade

He was one of the more minor characters in Marvel Comics until the Wesley Snipes movie, which was a surprise hit. The game is based on the movies, but the graphics aren’t as exciting as you might think. The progressive jackpots are cool, though.

Captain America

Captain America

This is based on the most popular patriotic superhero in history. One thing you can be sure of in this game, too—you won’t see Steve Roger saying, “Hail, Hydra!”

Daredevil

Daredevil

This wasn’t one of the better-received Marvel movies, but the Netflix television series has fared better. The game is based on the movie, though.

Elektra

Elektra

Daredevil wasn’t so badly received that a spinoff was prevented. But it was even more poorly received. The game from Playtech is about what you’d expect.

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four

So far all of the Fantastic Four movies have been disappointing, which is a surprise considering that this is the team which launched Marvel Comics back in the day.

Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider

Our favorite superhero in the Marvel canon has always been Ghost Rider. The Nick Cage movies weren’t bad, but they didn’t quite capture what made the comic book so special, either. The game is fun, but it’s like the movie—it just doesn’t quite capture what made the comic book so cool.

Iron Man

Iron Man

This movie, starring Robert Downey, Jr., launched the current batch of extremely popular movies from Marvel. The game has spawned sequels of its own, too.

Spider-Man

Spider-Man

Next to the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man is probably as iconic a character as Marvel has ever published.

The Avengers

The Avengers

The World’s Greatest Heroes assemble to defeat a threat that no single superhero could handle on his own. The first batch of movies led up to The Avengers. The slots game is cool, with 4 randomly triggered progressive jackpots.

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk

None of the movies based on this character have done especially well, but The Incredible Hulk arguably stole the show during The Avengers movie. We got a kick out of one of the symbols in the game, the gamma-ray irradiated liquid in a flask.

Thor

Thor

He’s not just a character from Norse mythology. He’s also a superhero. AND he’s one of The Avengers.

Wolverine

Wolverine

He’s easily the most popular of The X-Men, who were, for years, the most popular team in Marvel Comics.

X-Men

X-Men

The X-Men were hugely popular for years, but The Avengers now seems to be a bigger hit. But if you’re a fan of these children of the atom, this game is for you.

Playtech Slots Based on TV Shows

Some of their slots games are also based on TV shows, but these titles make up a smaller percentage of their overall offerings:

Baywatch

Baywatch

We found this show just as strangely addictive as everyone else did. You can expect the game to become even more popular after the movie relaunch comes out.

Pink Panther

Pink Panther

This game isn’t based on the movie series starring Peter Sellers. Instead, it’s based on the classic series of Pink Panther cartoons.

The Love Boat

The Love Boat

Because of when it was made, The Love Boat is almost certainly targeted at an older demographic. We’re in our 40s, and we barely remember the show, so it must be aimed at the 50-somethings.

The Six Million Dollar Man

The Six Million Dollar Man

This show was on even earlier than The Love Boat, but it targeted a younger demographic in those days. We’re still guessing that most fans of Steve Austin are in their 50s, though.

Other Games and Themes

But Playtech doesn’t limit its slot machine game selection to those games that are tied into other intellectual properties. They have a wide variety of games with unique themes that appeal to various interests:

8 Ball Slots

8 Ball Slots

This game is based on billiards.

A Night Out

A Night Out

This game has a bar-hopping theme.

Age of the Gods

Age of the Gods

If you’ve ever seen a board game or video game called Age of Empires, you’ll immediately notice the resemblance. This one has a sequel, too, Age of the Gods: Furious 4.

Alchemist’s Lab

Alchemist’s Lab

We like the theme of this one because it’s a little unusual. Many gambling games use a treasure theme, but most of them aren’t concerned with alchemy and pseudoscience.

Atlantis Queen

Atlantis Queen

Ancient cultures are also popular themes, but Atlantis is especially cool because we know so little about their culture.

Battle of the Gods

Battle of the Gods

This one has a similar theme to Age of the Gods.

Beach Life

Beach Life

This is a more generic game with a theme similar to Baywatch.

Bench Warmer Football Girls

Bench Warmer Football Girls

This is one of several sports-themed slots available.

Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle

If you love Atlantis, you’ll probably also get a kick out of this game based on The Bermuda Triangle. Maybe Playtech’s designers were big fans of the 70s TV show, In Search Of.

Captain’s Treasure

Captain’s Treasure

You’ll find no shortage of slot machine games with a theme based on pirates and treasure, but this one has cuter animations than most.

Chinese Kitchen

Chinese Kitchen

This one features a quirky theme, although Asia is often associated with gambling because of their cultural affinity for luck.

Chippendales

Chippendales

This is, of course, another licensed property, but it’s not based on a movie or anything like that. The obvious target audience for this one is the ladies who like to gamble.

Cops n Bandits

Cops n Bandits

Another “cute” theme.

Crazy 7

Crazy 7

As generic a theme as you might imagine, but well-executed.

Daring Dave & The Eye of Ra

Daring Dave & The Eye of Ra

This isn’t a licensed version of Indiana Jones, but the theme will be familiar to anyone who’s seen these movies.

Desert Treasure

Desert Treasure

Another treasure-themed game.

Diamond Valley

Diamond Valley

Any kind of gemstone is also fair game for the video slots treatment.

Dolphin Cash

Dolphin Cash

Another one of those “quirky” themes. Cute animals are also always fair game.

Dr. Lovermore

Dr. Lovermore

We thought this one was unusual and original. It reminds us a little bit of the old video game, Leisure Suit Larry, but it also reminds us of an RTG title, Mid-Life Crisis.

Dragon Kingdom

Dragon Kingdom

We love fantasy themed titles.

Easter Surprise

Easter Surprise

Titles based on holidays are popular, too.

Fei Long Zai Tian

Fei Long Zai Tian

One of multiple titles based on Asian culture.

Football Carnival

Football Carnival

More sports themed goodness.

Football Fans

Football Fans

We weren’t so sure that football fans made up such a large percentage of the slots playing population.

Fortune Hill

Fortune Hill

Cute animation and a familiar theme.

Fortune Jump

Fortune Jump

The word “fortune” is a double entendre of sorts, meaning both luck and wealth.

Fountain of Youth

Fountain of Youth

A nice companion to the Dr. Lovermore game, in a thematic sense, anyway.

Foxy Fortunes

Foxy Fortunes

An animal-themed title that’s kind of cute—it’s probably aimed at a feminine audience.

Frankie Dettoris Magic Seven

Frankie Dettoris Magic Seven

This one’s based on horse racing themes.

Funky Fruits

Funky Fruits

Playtech doesn’t have as many games with a fruit-based theme as you’d expect. That’s a popular iconography used by most slots designers.

Funky Monkey

Funky Monkey

Another animal themed game.

Geisha Story

Geisha Story

More Asian themed goodness.

Ghosts of Christmas

Ghosts of Christmas

Another holiday themed title.

Goblin’s Cave

Goblin’s Cave

We love this one because of the cute theme.

Goddess of Life

Goddess of Life

This is an odd set of images to use in a gambling game. You need to see it for yourself.

Golden Games

Golden Games

This is a 5 reel game with a sports tournament theme.

Great Blue

Great Blue

Another dolphin themed game.

Halloween Fortune

Halloween Fortune

This is our favorite holiday and one of our favorite holiday themed games.

Haunted House

Haunted House

This isn’t really holiday-related; it’s just a horror themed game.

Highway Kings

Highway Kings

We like the unusual choice of truckers for this game. Apparently a lot of gamblers like it, too, because the game has a sequel titled Highway Kings Pro.

Hot Gems

Hot Gems

We love the miner icon and the imagery here. It’s obvious why this might make a good game.

Ice Hockey

Ice Hockey

If you’re not a fan of football, Playtech still has sports games that might please you. This is one of them.

Irish Luck

Irish Luck

We mentioned already that any kind of cultural symbolism related to wealth is a popular theme. When we think of the Irish, we don’t just think of treasure, but also leprechauns and luck.

Jackpot Giant

Jackpot Giant

You’ll notice that a lot of these original titles combine common themes—in this case, the idea of a big win and a character from mythology.

Jungle Boogie

Jungle Boogie

This is not based on the song of the same name. It only has 3 reels and 1 payline, making it easy to understand.

Land of Gold

Land of Gold

Another Irish-themed game.

Lotto Madness

Lotto Madness

Americans love the lottery. It’s too bad they can’t enjoy this title from Playtech because of the company’s ban on U.S. players.

Lucky Panda

Lucky Panda

This combines a lot of common themes, including good luck, animals, and Asia. (That’s where pandas are from.)

Magical Stacks

Magical Stacks

Most of the symbols are cubes which transform magically while you play.

Medusa’s Gaze

Medusa’s Gaze

Mythology is a rich source of ideas for gambling machine designers.

Mr. Cashback

Mr. Cashback

Another cute game with 5 reels and 15 paylines. The top jackpot is 7500 coins.

Nian Nian You Yu

Nian Nian You Yu

Another Asian themed game.

Ocean Princess

Ocean Princess

This one has 3 reels but 5 rows of symbols. Symbols include marine life like seahorses and crabs.

Panther Moon

Panther Moon

Playtech has 2 titles related to panthers, and they couldn’t be more different from each other. The panther in this game is black and has nothing to do with “The Pink Panther”.

Party Line

Party Line

Gambling games often feature iconography related to parties and festivities.

Piggies and the Wolf

Piggies and the Wolf

This one is based on the classic fairy tale The Three Little Pigs.

Plenty O’Fortune

Plenty O’Fortune

Another Irish-themed, treasure and luck combination.

Queen of Wands

Queen of Wands

You’ll love the cute animation of a gypsy woman with her crystal ball.

Rock n Roller

Rock n Roller

Rock and roll music isn’t as popular in these kinds of games as you might expect.

Safari Heat

Safari Heat

Exotic locales are big, too.

Samba Brazil

Samba Brazil

Another exotic locale, although this one is a little more modern than most.

Santa Surprise

Santa Surprise

We love Christmas themed games, especially when they feature Santa Claus.

Secrets of the Amazon

Secrets of the Amazon

Jungles are popular because there’s often treasure hidden there.

Sherlock Mystery

Sherlock Mystery

This is only very loosely based on the Conan Doyle novels. The character is in the public domain now, and this game is based on no particular version other than the original.

Si Xiang

Si Xiang

We can’t pronounce most of these Asian themed games, but we don’t need to, as long as we keep winning jackpots.

Silent Samurai

Silent Samurai

This one is a little bit of a different spin on the Asian theme, as it’s specifically Japanese in nature.

Silver Bullet

Silver Bullet

This is not based on the Stephen King novella, even though it has a similar premise.

Spud O’Reilly’s Crops of Gold

Spud O’Reilly’s Crops of Gold

More Irish goodness.

Streak of Luck

Streak of Luck

Anything to do with luck seems to make for a fun experience.

Sultan’s Gold

Sultan’s Gold

Any far-flung land can be combined with treasure to make for a fun adventure.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach

This one has animated girls in bikinis.

Sweet Party

Sweet Party

We like these images as they’re related to candy, which is an under-used type of imagery in gambling.

Tennis Stars

Tennis Stars

Another sports-centered idea.

The Great Ming Empire

The Great Ming Empire

More exotic locales and Asian-fueled treasure hunting.

The Jazz Club

The Jazz Club

This exotic location is a little closer to home. We expect games based on rock and roll music, but jazz, not as much.

The Pyramid of Ramesses

The Pyramid of Ramesses

Egypt is probably the most popular exotic locale, because of the treasures and treasure hunters that the country is so well known for.

The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers

This one isn’t based on any of the movies, but rather, the novels. Since they’re in the public domain, we don’t really consider this a licensed game.

Top Trumps

Top Trumps

This is a whole series of games that have nothing to do with Donald Trump or his empire.

Tres Amigos

Tres Amigos

You don’t see a lot of Mexico-themed slots, and when you do, they usually focus on Mayan or Incan treasure. This is a neat exception.

Triple Profits

Triple Profits

A unique 3 reel slot machine.

Tropic Reels

Tropic Reels

Another location based theme.

Ugga Bugga

Ugga Bugga

Another unique 3 reel slot machine.

Vacation Station

Vacation Station

Ever wanted to take the trip of a lifetime without leaving the comfort of your desk chair?

Viking Mania

Viking Mania

Vikings aren’t featured as often as some other cultures, and in this game, they’re more cartoonish than usual.

Wacky Waters

Wacky Waters

5 reels and 15 paylines of underwater fun.

White King

White King

This one has an unusual theme—that of a beautiful albino lion, the king of the jungle.

Wild Games

Wild Games

Wild animals participate in the Olympics. We love this one.

Wings of Gold

Wings of Gold

This one is based on early pilots flying early airplanes.

Wu Long

Wu Long

Another Asian-themed game.

Zhao Cai Jin Bao

Zhao Cai Jin Bao

Another hard-to-pronounce game based on Asian culture.

Conclusion

This page doesn’t claim to provide an exhaustive or comprehensive list of Playtech slot machines. The best we could do is provide highlights. We think we’ve covered the biggest and the best of the games they offer.

It’s an interesting company, and they roll out new slot machines all the time, so it’s worth keeping an eye on them. One thing to keep in mind if you’re a player in the United States though—Playtech does not allow the casinos using their software to accept real money players from the USA. So if you’re looking for real money slots for United States players, you might want to take a look at some of the games available from Realtime Gaming.
