Platech was started twelve years ago in 1999 by several casino gaming executives and a team of top quality software engineers. Now in 2011 the company is known as the world’s largest publicly-traded online gaming software supplier, offering cutting-edge online scratch card games for pro players and amateurs who value new innovative themes and flawless game play.
The Playtech website states that their "philosophy is based on deep and stable partnerships and success on a commitment to achieving excellence through cooperation and shared goals with our licensees." As a third-party software provider, the playtech portfolio of games is published by many independent operators and traffic partners.
Playtech is a giant in the world of scratch card gaming but they also have extensive products including online Casinos, iPoker, the world's largest online poker network, Bingo, Mobile Gaming, Live Gaming, Server-supported Terminals, Fixed Odds, and Asian Games. They provide them as part of a single unified platform which is why you can use all of their games through one user account, and username-password combination on any participating scratch card site.
At this stage of development, Playtech has gone beyond simply producing new titles to include services that cover Customer Support, Financial Services, Fraud Prevention, Hosting Services, Payment Advisory Services, Poker and Bingo Network Management, Live Dealer Services and vast Marketing Networks.
Having a company with a vested interest in the overall health of the online gaming market is important because they know winning players are the ones who will keep playing in the future as well!
