Playson is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. They appear to have their background in various Russian based groups. As with most of the newer software developers they are primarily focused on the online slots market and do not offer enough non-slots games to deliver a complete casino platform by themselves. That said they do offer a small range of table and video poker games.
Playson have a strong focus on slots games and only provide a partial suite of of casino games that is missing most major table games. Their games catalogue currently includes over 40 slots games, Blackjack and Roulette alongside a couple of Video Poker games.
Their video poker games do offer an auto-hold function. Having tested these games the auto-hold – unusually – does appear to advise the player in a manner that conforms to optimum strategy. However we would still encourage players to use this feature cautiously.
In terms of slots games, Playson offer games that are generally very graphically appealing and compete with the high quality as the top end of the market, have a clear gaming interface and offer an autoplay setting that allows the user to select up to 100 spins to play automatically and include autostops on both loss limits and single win limits. There is no ‘turbo play’ setting when playing Playson games. The House Edge/RTP of the Playson slots games is listed within the paytable. Their games appear to average a House Edge of around 4% (96% RTP) but do range from 3% House Edge (97% RTP) to around 5% House Edge (95% RTP). This ranges is around average for the industry. The bonus features offered in Playson games range from generic free spin features or click and pick features in their older games, to more entertaining and original features that are more in line with the top end slots producers in the newer games.
Playson don’t offer a product that would do well in the modern market as a primary provider, they lack the range of non-slots games to outfit an entire casino platform, but they do make a reasonable addition to game catalogue when a more significant main platform is already in place.
