In fact, 80% of people who work for Playtech are employed under the company's R&D department. Playtech is responsible for many features seen in all modern internet casinos, including point-based loyalty programs and instant access to game and transaction histories. Today, they are the world's largest publicly traded online casino software developer, and their sortware powers more online casinos than most other software companies.

The first Playtech casino was launched in 2001 – this casino immediately began winning awards, helping to put Playtech on the map.
