Pragmatic Play is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. 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. Pragmatic Play have already been integrated by an impressive number of well known casino operators.
Pragmatic Play 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 80 slots games, Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette alongside a single Video Poker game.
Their video poker game – Jacks or Better – does offer a auto-hold function. This function is actively incorrect in terms of optimal strategy on a very large number of hands. Following this game’s advice would put the player at a far larger disadvantage than optimal play and likely large than most people playing by gut instinct. We would strongly discourage players from using this feature.
In terms of slots games, Pragmatic Play offer games that are generally graphically appealing though not quite as high quality as the top end of the market, have a clear gaming interface but do not offer any autoplay. There is a ‘turbo play’ setting when using the space bar to spin the reels. The House Edge/RTP of the Pragmatic Play slots games is listed within the paytable. Their games appear to average a House Edge of around 4% (96% RTP) but do range from under 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 Pragmatic Play games are fairly generic, generally rotating click and pick, free spins and small jackpot features.
Pragmatic Play 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. Their slots games could certainly use a little more creativity when it comes to bonus features, but other than that they are okay.
