Pragmatic Play is one of the fastest-growing software providers in the industry. Let’s find out what makes it so special.

Pragmatic Play Software

Despite only being founded in 2015, Pragmatic Play has already established itself as one of the iGaming industry’s leading software suppliers. Its ever-growing portfolio is home to more than 100 HTML5 titles covering both video slots and table games.

In 2018, Pragmatic Play acquired the popular live dealer casino company Extreme Live Gaming. While more recently it added VSoftCo, a leading supplier of virtual sports betting products, to its expansive list of brands.

Pragmatic Play Quick Facts

Compared to some of the more established software houses such as Net Entertainment and Microgaming, Pragmatic Play is still a very new name.

However, that hasn’t stopped it racking up a string of awards and other accolades. Here are a few quick facts of interest:

  • Holds licences with the UK Gambling Commission, Malta Gaming Authority and ONJN Romania among others
  • Pragmatic Play’s games are independently certified by Gaming Labs and BMM Test Labs
  • Has offices in Malta, Gibraltar, the UK and the Philippines
  • Winner of multiple industry awards, including Best Slot Game at the 2018 Malta Gaming Awards, Innovation in Slot Provision 2018 EGR Awards and Best Gaming Company 2019 at MIGEA
  • Its games can be enjoyed at some of the best online casinos such as 888casino, Mr Green, Leo Vegas and many others

Pragmatic Play is a true all-rounder. Its library of games consists of RNG casino classics like roulette, blackjack and baccarat. It has also developed several scratchcards, a keno game and Jacks or Better video poker.

However, video slots and classic slots are what Pragmatic Play is best known for. If you are yet to sample any of this developer’s work, these games are a great introduction.

  • Wolf Gold - wild wolves are the theme for this stellar 25 payline video slot. It comes loaded with special features including the Blazin Reels free spins bonus round. During this feature, the middle three reels spin together as one giant symbol, thus producing some massive payouts. Another exciting addition is the Money Respin feature. Here if you land six moon symbols, you trigger three respins. All the moons have a money value inside them, and they are sticky. As more moons land on the reels during the respins, you win more money. Wolf Gold is also available as a jackpot slot where you can win one of three jackpots: Mini, Major or Mega
  • The Great Chicken Escape - Pragmatic Play takes you to the farmyard for this fun, action-packed slot. There are random spin features in the base game, including Guard Dog Wilds and Chicken Run Wilds, both of which can be highly rewarding. However, this game is all about its five bonus rounds. You have two ‘cash collect’ bonuses: the Secret Tunnel and Poultry in Motion. Then there are two free spin bonus rounds and lastly a Big Money Bonus feature. This is one of our favourites, and you’ll see why when you play it
  • Hot Chilli this is one of Pragmatic Play’s most-played slots. Visually, it is second to none. The game looks stunning with detailed graphics and crisp artwork. There are 9 paylines housed on a 3x3 reel set. Hot Chilli doesn’t offer any free spins bonus rounds, however. Instead, this game is all about the Chilli multipliers which really boost up the payouts. It has a respectable 96.52% RTP and a medium to high volatility rating. This means there are a few dead spins, but you get larger payouts when you do go on a hot streak
