We’re entertainers first and foremost. Fun is at the heart of everything we do, say, and create. 

1. History

Play'n GO started as a sub-contractor, right at the beginning of the online casino market, in the first few years after the first casinos started. Founded in 1997, Play'n GO was initially a creator of online games for a bigger company, and it did well in that capacity for several years. Eventually, they started creating games for themselves and they launched their first titles starting with 2004. They seem to do especially well in the mobile games niche, where they have designed solutions that work well on Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry.

They’re recognized as some of the best developers around, and they won Slot Provider of the Year in 2017, a title that was given at International Gaming Awards, to reward them for slots like 7 Sins, Grim Muerto, and others that were launched in 2016.

2. Play’n GO Casino Games Highlights

Though they’re especially good at releasing slots, Play'n GO has offered plenty of other casino games over the years. Whether you want to try out their version of the Caribbean Stud Poker, or if you enjoy Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, or any other major casino game, you’re going to find it in their collection. They also have three types of Roulette (French one included) and eight Blackjack, plus video poker and scratch card games.

The most impressive part of their collection seems to be the one relying on slot machines though. 290 Play'n GO slots have already been released, and the developer launches new ones every week or two. They’re impressive slot machines, which got them awards thanks to their quality, and Play'n GO seems to do very well with them.

I’ve seen some impressive games coming out of this developer in the last few years, but if you look at their collection you’re going to be able to find some weaker ones as well. Games like Lucky Diamonds or Irish Gold are not nearly as good as online slots like Thunder Screech, Miner Donkey Trouble, Bull in a China Shop, and Piggy Bank Farm. They have the usual mix of boring and impressive themes, and among the latter, I’d count the free slots dedicated to the day of the dead, jazz clubs, pimps, and even Scandinavian women.

2.1. Graphics

As I’ve mentioned before, the games generally are quite impressive these days, but in the past, they weren’t nearly as fun to look at. The important thing is that the majority of the slot machines that they’ve created are clearly of high quality, especially graphics-wise. Check any of the recent slots that they’ve put out and I’m sure you will feel the same way. It’s also what you can expect from their future releases, so you have a good reason to keep playing at online casinos that offer their titles.

With such a diverse portfolio of games, they needed the artists to match. Not one game is the same, our artists have taken inspiration from past artists and history to create the most fiting game designs. Take Charlie Chance for example, these games were inspired by the animations of Max Fleischer, the creator of Betty Boop and Popeye the Sailor. The blank and white, cartoonish style carries the aesthetic of this 1930s animation style. Where as our games that have been inspired by art through history. Our Viking-inspired games series sees symbols ring true to Norse mythology with motifs such as Thor’s Hammer and Frithiof’s Angurvadal.

2.2. Features

One other point in the favor of Play'n GO’s slot games is the kind of features that they are offering. Though you can still expect for the usual substitutes, scatters, or free spins to be available, they’re rarely going to be alone in giving you something exciting to do. Among the things that I’ve seen in their modern slot machines, there were extra wilds, second chances, highlighted reels, walking expanded wilds, and win spins.

2.3. Safer Gambling

At Play’n GO we are all about entertainment. And with that comes a built-in commitment to take our social responsibility seriously. Be it through collaboration with our partners, regulators or research bodies, the way we approach our content design or how we promote and live safer gambling in and outside of our business - we always do our best to be at the forefront as a supplier to prevent gambling from becoming harmful and to play an active role in raising industry standards.

​Understanding and continuing to learn about the causes for gambling harm and how minors can be best protected, making data-driven decisions and offering innovative solutions which go beyond what may be required by local regulations to bolster our partner’s safer gambling controls are key to this. And our partners can trust us to deliver. All our games for example come equipped with game play limits and in-play timers that, once activated by the casino operator and set by players, provide an in-game message letting players know that they have spent the time they wanted to spend playing or that they have reached their predetermined limits.

​In addition, we safeguard our approach by ensuring good safer gambling governance. We have a Safer Gambling Council consisting of representatives from different departments, dedicated roles coordinating and overseeing our safer gambling approach and safer gambling is lead from the top.

Play n Go wants its players to enjoy themselves while playing slots online, but only in a responsible manner. That's why the company is committed to ensuring that players have a safe gaming tools available to them.

  • Loss Limits: players who want to use the autoplay function are required to set a loss limit. This ensures that you don't get too carried away and are always aware of how much money you've spent.
  • Game History: You can view exactly how much money you've wagered on every single spin while playing slots from this developer. You can even see screenshots of each spin, allowing you to keep track of your spending.
  • Clock: All Play n Go games also come equipped with a Clock function. This is an in-play timer that requires players to set limits on their play. Once they have reached the limit, a pop-up will appear to keep players informed about how much time they have spent playing slots.

These safe gambling features are readily available on all Play n Go slots. It's up to the brand's partners to decide whether or not to turn them on for players to use.

3.1. Gemix

Gemix is a match-style game that has helped to defined slots gameplay. In order to create winning combinations, players must land matching symbols in groups and multiple wins can be made on a single spin as winning symbols disappear for new symbols to take their places.

Patterns can be cleared on the board to transfer to new worlds and trigger different wilds, which is a fun little feature. There are also four Crystal Charge bonuses that destroy and transform symbols.

3.2. Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead

Rich Wilde is arguably the most famous online slots character – a handsome explorer who visits ancient ruins to uncover priceless treasures. Book of Dead is the first game in the series, and the game offers players great winning potential in the form of mystery stacked symbols during the free spins round.

3.3. Moon Princess

Inspired by Japanese anime, Moon Princess is another match-style slot from Play n Go. Wins are created in the same way as Gemix, and there are three main characters who provide amazing random bonuses. Clearing the board enters you into the free spins bonus, where one of the character's bonus feature is active on every spin.

3.4. Hugo

Hugo is the first branded slot game from Play n Go, so it is certainly worth playing. Based on the popular cartoon from the 1990s, this slot game features vibrant graphics and fun gameplay with free spins and a pick-a-prize bonus that offers up prizes worth 500x. There are now several games in Play n Go's Hugo series with Hugo Goal and Hugo 2.
