Playtech to be OLG’s New BetBuddy for Responsible Gambling

Playtech joins Ontario in responsible online gambling campaign. The promotion of responsible gambling has long been a priority of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. The OLG is tasked with enforcing regulatory compliance among all gaming entities in the province, including land-based casinos and charitable gaming facilities, as well as the PlayOLG iGaming website. That job has grown indubitably larger in recent years. Ontario has allocated the managerial duties across dozens of land-based casino to private companies, easing their own load, but at the same time doubling their need for intense scrutiny of those operations. Expansion of the online gaming venue also requires a deeper and more meaningful level of supervision. That’s where the provincial regulator’s partnership with Playtech comes in.

Playtech’s new Game Modifier Raising Controversy

Does Playtech’s ‘Game Modifier’ compromise fairness of online casino games? For decades, the integrity of casinos have been questioned by players from far and wide. In the early days of Las Vegas, it is well known fact that the mafia ran the city, and mobsters aren’t really known for their fairness. Strict regulation via government authorities eventually brought integrity to the land-based casino industry, but when internet-based gambling came along, all the old questions of fairness arose once more. Again, it took years of legislative efforts all across the globe to bring palpable order to the iGaming realm, but the industry has finally achieved a distinguished reputation for responsibility. So long as casinos are licensed and regulated in reputable jurisdictions, players can rest assured their getting a fair deal. At least, that was the perception before Playtech announced the release of its new Space Digger Slot. On the surface, it … Continue reading

Playtech’s DC Comics Aquaman Slot Better than the Movie?

Playtech unveils DC-branded Aquaman Online Slot prior to film debut. Converting from text to film isn’t always a successful venture. Sometimes the book is better than the movie. Other times, Hollywood directors are spot on, turning classic text into a cinematic transformation of dulcet perfection. Today we’ll be comparing a unique set of adaptations; Playtech’s Aquaman Slot, taken from the original DC Comics, and Warner Bros. theatrical film of the same name. Were the online slot machine based off the film, it would be a different story. Being that both come from the comic series, it’s a relevant comparison that begs to answer the question—which is more entertaining? Aquaman Movie, Released December 21, 2018 Countless scowls graced the faces of super-hero fans from the moment previews started airing for this cinematic adaptation.

Playtech’s Live Casino Online Canada – 15 Years of Authentic Real Time Gambling If you’re a risk taker in Canada live online casinos by Playtech are worth exploring.

That soft launch, from a small studio in Manila, Philippines, delivered real-time baccarat tables to the Asian gaming market.
