Playtech is one of the leading online gaming software providers that offer a wide range of arcade games at its online casinos. The arcade games are listed as an independent category and are subdivided into further sub categories. One of these sub categories is Sports and contains arcade games based on bowling, darts, football and boxing.

The bowling themed arcade game is Bonus Bowling. Visual appeal is important in arcade games and Bonus Bowling creates a realistic bowling alley environment. Players have to predict the outcomes for which odds have been provided. The outcome of knocking from 0 to 3 pins offers a payout of 2 to 1; the outcome of knocking from 4 to 6 pins offers a payout of 3 to 1 and so on. At the upper end are the outcomes Spare, which is knocking all 10 pins in two throws, and Strike, which is knocking all 10 pins in one throw. Spare has a payout of 10 to 1 and Strike has a payout of 25 to 1. Players can wager between 1 and 100 credits on any of the outcomes. Multiple wagers can be placed for the same game. The total wager is displayed. Once the wagers are placed players click the Throw button. One by one two bowling balls are rolled across the alley. The score for each throw and the total score are displayed in the score board. If players have covered the final outcome in their wagers they receive the stated payouts.

Knockout is the boxing themed arcade game from Playtech. The game begins with the player selecting the blue boxer or the red boxer. The opponent is then displayed on the screen. The player then has to select the punch that his player will deliver. There are five different punches that aim at different areas of the opponent's body and pay out from 3 to 1 to 12 to 1. The player also has to select the amount wagered. The bout then takes place. If the player's boxer loses then he is shown beaten up, but if he manages to land his punch then he is shown victorious and the player receives the payout specified for that punch. The history of past punches is displayed. This gives information on which boxer succeeded and where the punch was delivered. This Playtech arcade game features realistic 3D graphics.

Playtech offers two football themed arcade games, Final Score and Penalty Shootout. Final Score is the more exciting of these games. Players begin by choosing the league they want to play and the home and away teams. These choices do not affect the game play, but only serve to add interest. A number of bets are offered that replicate the actual sports betting scenario. The simplest bets are the Match Betting that are home team winning, away team winning and draw. The Correct Score betting offers a number of final score options for home team wins, away team wins and draws. Players can also wager on the total number of goals scored in the game. There are special bets like penalties missed, penalties scored, injury time goals and red cards shown. As the cursor is placed over each bet the odds are displayed in a dedicated Bet Odds cell. Each bet can be from 1.00 to 5.00 credits. Once the bets are placed the football game is played out in super fast time. There are no visuals, only references to goals scored and special bets outcomes. The players receive payouts if they have bet on the actually occurring outcomes.

These sports themed arcade games can be played at all Playtech powered online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Omni Casino, Casino Del Rio and Casino Tropez.
