Playtech is a company based in the isle of Man. it was founded in 1985 in the United Kingdom by Teddy Sagi, and now it is the most important online gaming software provider.
in 2006, Playtech started to be listed on the London Stock Exchange, to the value of £ 550 million, with the title PTEC.L.
Unfortunately, a few months after its rise in the London Stock Exchange, , Playtech lost more than 40% of its value because of the Anti-Gambling decree "Unlawful internet Gambling Enforcement Act" passed by ex President George H. W. Bush.
Not just Playtech suffered economic collapse, a domino effect spread through all companies that had worked in the online gambling industry for several years, precisely for the American market.
After the Anti-Gambling decree, Playtech was forced to refuse any player living in the USA territory.
Month after month, the Playtech title recovers its value in the stock market, and in 2007, through the acquisition of 15 new licensees, including Mansion and CY Foundation, it reaches the maximum value, keeping it for more than 52 consecutive weeks.
in 2008, signing an exclusive agreement with Paramount Digital Entertainment, Playtech gained the right to offer two new games coming from famous Hollywood productions: "Gladiator" and "The Untouchables".
in the same year, Playtech made another big hit for the italian market, in agreement with Snai SpA, Eurobet italia S.p.A, Sisal SpA, Cogetech, founding a poker circuit for italian players.
Currently, Playtech boasts more than 700 employees in various countries around the world.
Playtech and AAMS License
In July 2011, two brands running Playtech software obtained and purchased AAMS license (Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato).These brands are William Hill and Titanbet online casinos, who acquired the right to offer to italian citizens their own gambling games, by following the italian national monopoly rules governing the online and public land gambling sector in italy.
Here you find other AMMS online casinos legitimated by italian state monopolies in order to offer online gambling.
Playtech multi-platform is one of the largest gaming management systems in the world. it allows the use of different platforms, such as online casino, iPoker, Bingo, Mobile Games, Live Games, broadcast games, server-based terminals, fixed odds bets and Asian games.

Playtech software, certified by BMM international, a society controlling the most important gaming and betting regulators, allows players to choose between two types of games, those with Random Number Generator (RNG) or other in live streaming video, where user can play against a live dealer filmed by a camcorder, with whom you can talk as if you were in a real casino. An example of live gaming is Roulette Live Pro.
The software is based on 3D graphics with digital sound effects accompanied by the voice of the dealer (also called Croupier) who announces when is the player's turn.
Playtech software can be installed on your hard disk or run flash mode that does not require any kind of installation. Compared to standard version, flash version will reduce quality of graphics and sound.
