Playtech is a premium-listed software developer whose games are well-known for the casino community. Founded back in '99 Playtech has risen through the ranks to become an industry leader in both gaming and technology. It produces top-tier casino, live casino, sports betting, virtual sports, bingo, and poker experiences. However, its live casino gaming is only one part of the company. What makes Playtech successful is its technology.
Playtech is the developer that pioneered Omni-channel gambling tech. Using Playtech ONE, an integrated platform for data-driven marketing, Playtech is able to market directly to players. It offers CRM, single-wallet functionality, and responsible gaming mandates all in one location. Playtech ONE is a tool the software developer has used more than once to produce popular products. It is also the reason behind Playtech's recent triple-threat software update.
The Triple Threat
Following an increased demand for experience-based gaming from modern players, Playtech has decided to update its live casino offerings. The update arrived in the form of three new gaming options released to players July 15th. Kevin Kilminster, Head of Innovation for Playtech's Live Casino, commented on the release. “Our ability to provide the atmosphere and presentation demanded by the modern generation is what places Live over standard RNG. By adding Spread-Bet Roulette, American Roulette, and Hi-Lo Club to our present range, Playtech offers players exciting and immersive gaming experiences”. The three new updates are already available across the board.
Hi-Lo Club Redesign
The triple threat starts off with a retooling of a player favorite called Hi-Lo. In an effort to entice modern players Playtech initiated a full redesign of the table game, re-releasing it as Hi-Lo Club. The redesign focuses primarily on gameplay. Hi-Lo has received an improved UX and a faster pace. Additionally, room design has also been upgraded. The game now follows an ‘80s Miami’ theme. The theme permeates everything from the tabletop, neon detailing, and the soundtrack to the complementary dealer uniforms. The immersive experience marks a solid addition to Playtech's Grand Royale room.
Spread-Bet Roulette is a brand new variation of traditional favorite Roulette. The new addition adds some exciting twists to traditional gameplay that modern players will enjoy. It also offers a 400x increase to player stakes that make it a rather profitable variation to play. Spread-Bet opens with a side bet feature unique to its variation. It has a physical wheel and an RNG ‘Spin a Win’ reel that provides combinations of seven different options for side bets. As aforementioned the payout potential can increase to 400x the stake. Spread-Bet also features a green win rule that can double all player bets. The game is backed up by high-end studio design with a minimum bet of 10.
American Roulette is another new variation but with less whiz-bangs than Spread bet. However, it still sets itself apart with a slew of new features, as well as increased margins for wins. American Roulette is a high-end variant complete with a double zero reel. It has enhanced UX, top-tier graphics, and quick gameplay. Its margins are increased when compared to European-style roulette, making it a more attractive choice for casinos and players. Modern players will enjoy the level playing field as well as the immersive experience provided.
