Pragmatic Play is one of the leading online casino software developers with offices and workshops spread across Malta, UK, Ukraine, India, Gibraltar and the Philippines. Though established in 2015, the history of the company dates back much further than that, having started off under the name TopGame with a cloud of heavy suspicion many years earlier. Whether a case of inexperience operating in the iGaming industry or a deliberate malicious strategy, some industry representatives argue that there is reason to believe that it's still being run by the same people though alledegly having been acquired by Pragmatic Play.
The TopGame legacy is a nasty drama with tales of rigged games, cheating both their business partners and the players. Fast forward to today, there is no doubt that Pragmatic Play is a company dead set on becoming a reputable provider with ambitions to compete in the top tier. Currently, it is one of the fastest growing providers in the iGaming space with 100+ games available in over 25 languages.
Pre-2018 era, there was quite honestly little to be excited about playing Pragmatic slots. Though well crafted and of decent overall quality, the games were mostly low to medium variance, rather generic in apparence and lacking innovation. For players into high variance and high maximum payouts there was little reason to play Pragmatic slots. All of that changed in 2018, when setting in motion a hype that came down to a clever marketing strategy synchronized with the release of Peking Luck and Da Vinci's Treasure, two brutally volatile offerings with massive win potential. Because of this, the slots gained an increase in playtime from punters, generating several huge wins spreading across social media and eventually establishing Pragmatic Play as an upandcomer and strong contender on the iGaming market.
