Software providers develop many types of games for online casinos. A large section of the games of the different software providers are quite similar. However, each software provider offers a selection of games that are unique and serve to differentiate it from the others. This article describes some of the unique games of the leading software provider Playtech.

Video slots form a majority of online casino games. This is also the case with Playtech. Playtech has acquired considerable popularity because of its branded slots. The most visible of these are the slot games based on the Marvel Movie super heroes like Iron Man, Blade, Incredible Hulk and X-Men. These slot games have graphics that are taken from the movies. The symbols and the bonus games portray the legends of the super heroes. Marvel super heroes have a huge fan following and this translates to traffic for the branded Marvel slots.

Video slots usually have five reels and three or four rows of symbols. Classic slots usually have three reels and one or three rows of symbols. Playtech offers online slots with a unique structure that are listed under 8 payline slots games at its online casinos. The nine symbols are arranged in a 3 x 3 matrix and each of the nine spots spins as an independent reel. The eight paylines are arranged horizontally, diagonally and vertically. Online slot games in this genre include Chinese Kitchen, Vacation Station and Gold Rally. In Gold Rally the progressive jackpot is hit when all nine spots on the reels have the scale symbol.

An independent category of slots games at Playtech online casinos is the Multi Spin slots. The set up consists of a number of independent three reel single line slots. When the player first clicks the Spin button three symbols appear in one of the slots. The player can hold any number of these symbols and when he does so the held symbols are automatically transferred to the other slots. When the player next clicks the Spin button, the reels not held spin and come to rest. Each slot is independently assessed against the same payout table. The titles in this category include Goblin’s Cave, Ugga Bugga, Triple Profits, Ocean Princess and Tropic Reels.

Playtech online casinos have a category of games called Asian Games. Most of these are variants of Mahjong. They are based on the popular ancient game of Mahjong, but converted to a fixed odds format. Players do not compete against one another but against the online casino. Players start with a hand that is one tile away from a win. There is a wall of 24 face down tiles and the player is given three picks to find a tile that completes a winning combination.

One of the most exciting games categories at Playtech online casinos is arcade games. It includes keno variants, Hi Lo games, virtual racing games and fixed odds games based on sports and table games. The Hi Lo games are based on the next number picked being higher or lower than the previous one. Players are offered odds for both options and have to choose one. What makes Playtech Hi Lo games interesting is that they are set in thematic situations. Genie’s Hi Lo has players drawing cards and Roller Coaster Dice Hi Lo is set in an amusement park.

All these unique games can be played at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino, Mansion Casino and William Hill Casino Club.
