Playtech, what it is and what is its history. Let’s find out all the details together in this article dedicated to online casino software

If you have ever played in an online casino, you have most likely come across Playtech software. Why, you ask? Simply because Playtech is one of the oldest and most trusted online casino software companies still in business. You can find their games in all reputable gambling sites. But before we review their games, we would like to tell you about how the company has developed over the years.

Brief history of Playtech

Playtech was founded by Teddy Sagi in 1999. He founded the company together with partners from the gaming, software engineering and multimedia industries. Their first product of casino online was launched in 2001. A few years later, in 2006, Playtech publicly floated its company on the London AIM market. The valuation was $950 million. While their IPO was a success, the timing couldn’t be worse, as it was the same year that the UIGEA was passed in the US. As a result, Playtech’s shares plunged 40%. Six years later, the company moved to the main market of the London Stock Exchange and shortly after was listed on the FTSE 250 index. Despite the temporary decline in shares, Playtech has continued to grow, acquiring several companies in the last 5-10 years.

Some of the companies acquired are:

  • Videobet Gaming Technology Solutions – At the time, GTS was a leading software developer.
  • Virtue Fusion Limited – Is a developer and licensee of online bingo products.
  • Intelligent Gaming Solutions – Provider of casino management solutions.
  • PT Turnkey Solutions Limited – Another management solutions provider.
  • Mobenga – Leading developer of mobile games.
  • Ash Gaming – A game development studio.

As a result, it has become a huge force in the gambling industry. Playtech operates dozens, if not more than 100 casinos, poker rooms, bingo halls and sportsbooks. Today Playtech has over 5,000 employees, with offices in 17 different countries. It has 140 global licenses and operates in 20 regulated jurisdictions.
