Playtech Progressive Games – Games With Progressive Jackpots by Playtech

If there's a software company that has something going on in every facet of online gambling, it's probably Playtech. Founded in 1999 by Teddy Sagi, Playtech went public in 2006 and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. It's headquarters are on the Isle of Man, but it is very much a global operation with employees in places like Bulgaria, Israel and Ukraine. The company's software runs not just traditional online casino games, but also poker and bingo networks, sports betting and more. It's also forged ahead in areas like live dealer games and mobile casino gambling, both places that analysts expect to expand in the years to come.

Playtech's reputation allowed it to sign a deal to produce progressive online slots games based on the movie versions of the famous Marvel family of super hero characters, a move that turned into a profitable partnership. With Iron Man leading the way, there are also progressive slots based on the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Blade and more. Though all of the games have unique gameplay mechanics to give them their own flavor, they share a four-level progressive jackpot feature that links them together within online casinos in various different places. They've proven to be extremely popular with slots players, and with Marvel readying more movies, that's likely to continue too.

Moving away from the capes and tights crowd, Gold Rally is another Playtech progressive slot that has become a favorite thanks to jackpots that have breached the $2 million mark on more than one occasion. Beach Life falls into that category too, and it's fun to play even for people who don't get a sniff of the progressive jackpot with its bright, colorful summer vacation theme and aquatic bonus round. Playtech also pioneered a progressive side bet for its slots games called Dollar Ball, which is a $1 side bet on non-progressive games that still allows players to chase a linked progressive jackpot. The company claims that players have taken home over $126 million on its progressive machines to date.

Playtech has a tendency not to work with the bigger, more famous names in places like the UK, but that doesn't mean its online casino licensees aren't numerous or reputable, because they are. The list of gambling sites where Playtech progressive games are offered includes Omni Casino, Casino Tropez, Golden Palace, Casino Del Rio and Grand Casino.
