In the world of online gaming, there are less than a dozen companies that can be called true giants. Playtech is one of those who helped build the industry. A leading game studio launched in 1999, Playtech became a synonym for success. The studio’s motto is ‘Source of Success’ and that’s not far from the truth. Playtech’s games have won multiple awards just like the studio, making it a real juggernaut in iGaming.
Apart from releasing games, the studio likes to dabble in various side-projects under the Playtech umbrella. The latest in a long line of projects is Origins, a development studio releasing products under the Playtech Origins brand.
Although many haven’t heard about it, the studio is behind some of Playtech’s biggest slot hits. The list includes Egyptian Emeralds and Lucky Emeralds as well.
