Games

A lot of Playtech’s games have reached legendary statuses among casino players, and some of the most popular are:

Buffalo Blitz

Buffalo Blitz takes players on a journey across the North American plains in a 6×4 video slot with 4,096 paylines filled with exciting symbols and win combos. The game features Scatter and Wild symbols that activate a number of bonus rounds, such as the Free Spins bonus round where players can get up to 200 free spins with random multipliers. The maximum payout is worth 10,000x your bet, and thanks to the 95.96% RTP, you can expect the wins to come more often than not.



Age of the Gods

Age of the Gods is a household name in the word of online slots, and one of the most famous games by Playtech. This Greek mythology-inspired progressive jackpot slot is played on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 20 paylines. The main bonus round in the game is activated when 3 or more Scatter symbols land on a payline, thus bringing at least 9 free spins and up to 10x multiplier. There are four randomly activated progressive jackpots that can bring prizes worth millions. The RTP is a bit below the industry average and set at 95.02%, but that is due to the progressive jackpots.

Gladiator Jackpot

The Gladiator Jackpot slot game by Playtech is based on a famous movie of the same name, starring Russel Crowe and Joaqin Phoenix. The story of general Maximus is unveiled on a 5×3 playing grid and 25 paylines that help you form massive wins.

The game’s RTP is set at 91.46%.
