Four Landmark Playtech Slots

Every major online gaming software developer offers at least one progressive jackpot online slot game that has paid out huge amounts. Beach Life is Playtech's show case slot game in this category. In the last one year Beach Life has paid out more than $7 million at an average hit of about $2.25 million. In its overall history it has registered two individual hits of more than $4 million. Apart from this propensity for high payouts Beach Life is a normal video slot game with a summer beach theme. The progressive jackpot is hit when five wild Sunflower symbols appear on the enabled 20th payline. If these symbols appear on any other payline then the player wins a fixed jackpot of 100,000 coins.

One of the landmark Playtech slot games has to be from the Marvel Movies superhero series. This series marked Playtech’s entry into the branded slots arena in head to head to head competition with Cryptologic, which had been successfully running the Marvel Comics superhero series for two years. Currently there are seven games in this series. The Incredible Hulk is being selected as the landmark slot but only as a representative of the genre. All Marvel Movies slots are networked to the four-level Mystery Progressive Jackpot. These are Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. The entry to the jackpot game is triggered randomly on any spin and once this game is triggered players are assured of winning one of the four jackpots. The symbols on the reels of The Incredible Hulk are closely associated with the legend of the super hero and the bonus games closely replicate his actions on the screen.

The third landmark Playtech slot game is Gold Rally. This is also a progressive jackpot game that has given quite a few million dollar plus payouts. However, Gold Rally has been chosen as a landmark slot game because of its unique structure. The symbols on the reels are arranged in a three by three matrix with each of the nine positions spinning independently. There are eight paylines – three horizontal, three vertical and two diagonal. The slot game has the popular gold mining theme. The Scale is the scatter symbol and offers scatter payouts when five or more such symbols appear on the reels. When all nine symbols are Scale symbols the progressive jackpot is hit. There are three other Playtech slots in this format. They are Chinese Kitchen, Ultimate Fighters and Vacation Station.

The final landmark Playtech slot game is Captain’s Treasure Pro. This has been chosen because it illustrates a practice that is common across software providers. Captain’s Treasure Pro captures the equity of an earlier slot game Captain’s Treasure but incorporates the latest developments in the software. The Pro version of Captain’s Treasure uses three dimensional photographic images as symbols on the reels instead of flat two dimensional ones. The animations also display this enhanced graphical quality. The bonus features are more interesting. Cryptologic has adopted this technique in its slot game Buccaneer’s Bounty and Microgaming in Thunderstruck.

The four landmark Playtech slots can be played at all Playtech online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Casino Tropez, Casino Del Rio and Omni Casino.
