Playtech Online Casino Games

Different online gaming software providers structure their Games Menu differently. It makes sense to understand these structures because of two reasons. The first reason is that it helps in identifying the games that are unique to the software provider. The second reason is that it helps in locating the desired games at the online casinos powered by that software provider. Playtech is one of the leading online gaming software providers. This article discusses the structure of the Games Menu at Playtech online casinos. For the sake of convenience the games categories are being considered in the order they usually appear.

The first two categories are additional categories of New Games and Favorite Games. These games will also reflect in their natural categories. Online casino players like gravitate to the new games released. Hence when new games are released they are also listed in the New Games category. This makes it easier for players to access these games. Each player has his own favorite game that he likes to play again and again. He can add these games to the Favorite Games Category. Whenever he accesses these games through their normal folder he can click on the “add to favorites” link. The next time round he can access these games directly from the Favorite Games folder.

There are two categories for the slot games – Classic Slots and Video Slots. The classic slots are the three reel slots and are listed alphabetically. The video slots are the five reel slots and are further subdivided into smaller groups. These groups are Marvel Jackpot slots, 5-9 Line slots and 15-20 line slots. In both the Classic Slots and Video Slots additional information is provided about the games. This includes the number of paylines, whether it is a new game, whether it has a progressive jackpot and whether it is a Dollar Ball game.

The next category is the Table & Card Games. There are many types of games in this category and this is indicated next to the game. The types are Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Poker, Cards and Table. The Cards games are the cards games other than blackjack, baccarat and poker and include games like Red Dog and Stravaganza. The Table games are the dice games of craps and sic bo. Since Roulette and Blackjack games are more common they have been given a subcategory as well to make it more convenient for players searching for these games.

Playtech is one of the few online gaming software providers that offer Live Dealer games, and this is the next category. The live dealer games on offer are blackjack, baccarat, casino Hold’em and two roulette variants. The next category is Video Poker. Most of the games are single line games, but there are 4-line, 10-line, 25-line and 50-line games as well.

The two unique categories at Playtech online casinos are Arcade Games and Asian Games. Some other online casino software providers offer few arcade games and list them under Other Games or Specialty Games. Playtech offers over 25 arcade games of different varieties, some of them with progressive jackpots. The more popular of the Playtech arcade games are Heads or Tails, Jackpot Darts and Megaball. The Asian Games include variants of Mahjong and Japanese Pachinko games.

Two other cross categorizations are Progressive Games and Multiplayer Games. These are popular games found across normal categories and therefore listed separately for convenience.
