The Playtech brand is as recognizable and popular as Microgaming. Launched slightly later, in 1999, its’ first official Playtech powered online casino went live in 2001.

While Microgaming might be best known for its formidable progressive jackpot slots library, Playtech are arguably best known for their innovative and award-winning cross-platform software. This is a popular and attractive feature for many experienced Canadian online casino gamers, as they are able to get everything that they need from a single online casino, in one place.

Why Canadians love Playtech games

The vast majority of Playtech’s gaming suite is available to players regardless of whether they choose the full download package, decide to play at the fast and easy Flash casino platform or prefer to simply access their favorite Playtech games via their mobile device.

Playtech mobile gaming supports a wide variety of mobile devices including tablets as well as a number of operating systems including iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. Either through a dedicated app or directly via mobile browser technology.

Payment methods

Playtech casinos are highly flexible when it comes to banking options and allow for a number of different options for both depositing funds and withdrawing winnings.

Of particular importance to Canadian players is Playtech’s inclusion of Instadebit, an online transacting application that has been especially designed for Canadians in online transactions.

Instadebit is by far the most popular payment method of choice for the vast majority of Canadians as the application acts as a sort of buffer or go-between. Essentially Instadebit will deal directly with the online casinos in transacting, meaning that you don’t have to divulge any of your personal banking information to a third party. Instadebit is the safest and easiest way for Canadians to deal with online casino banking.

There are of course other methods available at Playtech casinos for both deposits and withdrawals and it all depends on what you are most comfortable with. Popular methods include MasterCard, Visa, PayPalPaysafeCard and a number of other credit, debit, e-Wallet and bank transfer options.

PayPal is known as one of the fastest methods for withdrawal and most Canadians will only have to wait for one working day. The same can also be said for Neteller, one of the most popular methods for Canadians after Instadebit.
