Overview of the Range of Online Slots by PlayTech
PlayTech was started in 1999 in Estonia when a group of entrepreneurs from the casino, software engineering and multimedia industries came together to form a casino software development company. In 2001 they welcomed their first licensee and have never looked back, growing year on year, being listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2006. Alongside casino software, the company has diversified to offer bingo, poker and sports betting and have formed long standing relationships with many of the top online casino sites. Of all the PlayTech products, it’s the slots that really catch the eye, with a range of games that offer a variety of bonus features, original gameplay and some mind boggling Jackpot sums.
The vast majority of the PlayTech range offer the usual 5x3 configuration found at the majority of online slots, although you will find some that differ with larger reels or unusual formats (Sweet Party being a fine example of a very different game). The entire range is something of a mixture graphically – some of the games offering almost cinematic experiences, while others are more perfunctory, the focus on the gameplay. One of the highlights of the PlayTech range are the Jackpot slots, with a number of £1 million plus payouts and the standout Marvel range of games all offering great levels of excitement.

PlayTech Jackpot Slots
The biggest and best Jackpot wins come your way when playing Beach Life. The largest win ever seen at the game is a stunning £5.2 million, while the average payout exceeds £2 million. You’ll win the Jackpot when hitting the Sun symbol five times in a row on the 20th pay line and then be heading to the sun yourself! Monty Python’s Spamalot and Funky Fruits both offer average Jackpot wins of seven figures too, while Sweet Party, Gold Rally and Gladiator have all payed out wins in excess of £1 million. Although not quite hitting the heights of these amounts, the Marvel Jackpot games offer an average Ultimate Power Jackpot of £460,000 and make for some of the most enjoyable Jackpot games found online. The Marvel range is pooled, meaning that the Jackpot is available at all of the games and playing any will increase the Jackpot amount.
You’ll also find many smaller Jackpot amounts at PlayTech slots, whether they are the smaller jackpot wins offered alongside the larger amounts at some games, or smaller Jackpots in their own right. An example is Safe Cracker with an average win amount of around £45,000, which is won on a more regular basis than some of the bigger pools. This article gives you more info on the jackpots available at PlayTech casinos.
PlayTech Themed Slots
The number of slots based on TV or movies is particularly large at PlayTech, with the Marvel games alone making up for the majority, including Captain America, Avengers, The Incredible Hulk and three Iron Man games. Alongside these you’ll find some TV classics such as ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’, ‘The Love Boat’ and ‘The Sopranos’, while movies such as ‘Rocky’, ‘Gladiator’ and ‘The Mummy’ also feature. ‘Top Trump Celebs’ is a unique game featuring such stars as David Beckham, Mariah Carey and George Clooney where you’ll have the opportunity of selecting who you want on the reels.
PlayTech Slot Formats
The majority of the PlayTech slots follow the tried and tested format of a number of pay lines (usually in the 15-25 range) which can be customized to play the number you want. You’ll choose the coin value directly, which gives the range added ease, as you’ll simply multiply this amount by the number of lines. You’ll find wilds and a host of original bonus features usually activated by landing the scatter symbol three or more times. The bonus features are a nice mix of free spins rounds and those rounds where you are taken to a second screen, where you’ll find a pick round or something more expansive.
Recommended PlayTech Slots
The Avengers – You couldn’t recommend some particular PlayTech slots without including at least one of the Marvel range and a whole host of them could have made this list. However, Avengers is a particular favorite. This is a 5 reel, 20 payline game with the highlight being the free spins round. This is based upon each of the four Avengers, with a slightly different round depending upon which Avenger you uncover 3 times on the ‘Wall of Fame’ bonus. As examples, the Hulk will give you 9 free spins with reel 3 being a stacked wild, while Thor will turn up to 5 symbols wild using his mighty hammer before each spin. Should you be lucky enough to enter the randomly awarded Jackpot round, you’ll find yourself presented with a series of tiles, each revealing one of the four Jackpot amounts (Ultimate Power, Super Power, Extra Power and Power) – whichever you uncover 3 times first is yours!
Monty Python’s Spamalot – If you want to enjoy a fun filled slot, look no further. This slot is based upon ’Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ and you’ll find a number of enjoyable features, played out in order. The ‘None Shall Pass’ bonus game sees you attempt to chop limbs off the ‘brave’ knight, hit and you’ll win a prize, while miss and the multiplier decreases by one, while the ‘Killer Rabbit’ bonus round sees you attempt to navigate six knights past the killer rabbit – the more who achieve it, the more you’ll win. The Jackpot at the game can be won by hitting five Jackpot symbols in the free spins round and then ascending six Jackpot levels, trying to avoid being squashed by a giant foot!
Battle of the Gods – This is a visually stunning slot with a very innovative bonus round. On the reels you’ll find gods (in blue) and titans (in red) and they’ll be facing each other throughout. The free spins round is the highlight where you’ll either play in God mode or Titan mode, switching between the two when a wild lands on reel 3. If you stay in God mode the spins will continue indefinitely, the round only coming to an end when in Titan mode. This is an original, engaging and eye catching slot.
