Are they legal/safe?

  • License

Pragmatic Play is licensed and permitted to offer its games in various parts of the world: in the Philippines, with a license granted by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), Curacao, Malta Gaming Authority, the UK Gambling Commission, Romania, and Gibraltar are its most prominent licenses.

It’s in the process of obtaining licensing for other regions, as the company seeks to comply with all jurisdictions its games are available in. 

  • Security

Pragmatic Play respects its users’ privacy by abiding by European laws and regulations, including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR). This law ensures that Pragmatic Play protects your data and keeps a record of its movement.

You can read the company’s privacy policy on its site. 

Fairness of their games

Gambling is a sport of uncertainty; it’s pleasing to know that you can be assured that most games by Pragmatic Play have high volatility and high RTP.

Although some games have variable RTP according to a title’s bonus features, every Pragmatic Play game comes with detailed play instructions, paytables, RTP and volatility information so you can choose exactly the right game for you. 

Furthermore, Pragmatic Play is regulated by player software protection services.

The company regularly verifies its games through independent third parties which test for fairness, random number generators, and quality level.

Reputable companies such as Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), Quinel, and Gaming Associates certify Pragmatic Play games, and this is the precondition the company has set for all the markets it operates in. 

Active in-game promotions/jackpots from Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play isn’t alone in offering promotional tools and content for its titles, but it is the only software developer with Enhance. Enhance is a promotional toolset that lets the company add unique and innovative features, including:

Enhance by Pragamtic Play

  • Tournaments

Applicable to live dealer games and slots, Tournaments let players experience real-time leaderboards and cash rewards. Players can also choose an auto payout function and receive notifications so they never miss the chance at a prize.

  • Prize drops

All a player needs to do is sign up for this particular promotion and any time they play a Pragmatic Play title, they stand a chance of receiving a random reward (e.g., NZD 50).

  • Free round bonuses

With this promotion, you might find yourself playing your favourite slot and suddenly find yourself gifted with free spins.

  • Countdown free round bonuses

Similar to the above promotion, except the bonus rounds come with time limits.

  • Free card bonuses

If you play any of the company’s virtual scratchcards, you stand the chance to win free goes on other scratchcards.

Although Pragmatic Play only offers eight jackpot slots, they all come with a minimum of 96% RTP, with some (like Diamond Strike) having an RTP above 97%.  

Great games they made

Here is what I gathered: although all Pragmatic Play games are top-notch, a few stood out. I have played these more than I could count, and I bet you’ll enjoy them as well!

  • Fruit Party 2

Not only is it fun to play, but it takes a classic theme, updates with gorgeous graphics, and wraps it all up in a high volatility slot with a decent RTP of 96.53%.

Matching five symbols horizontally or vertically releases a winning cluster, resulting in tumble reels; this is where the big multipliers are!

  • Safari King

It is all in the name of the game, and they delivered! This animal-themed game left the theme music ringing in my head for days, but I enjoyed every last bit of it.

There is a maximum bet of NZD 250, and the minimum bets start just 0.50, making this slot ideal for both casual and confident players.

  • Aztec Bonanza

Your mission is to find the Aztec treasure, which can multiply your stake by over 19,000 times. The game has bonus features with each spin, including the possibility of landing a lucrative Mystery symbol.

  • Great Rhino Megaways

This is the first Pragmatic Play title to use the famous Megaways technology and comes with an RTP of 96.50%. The game is animal-themed and has over 200,000 possible combos on a non-standard playing field, with six reels. Besides getting free spins, the game allows you to buy more spins with an additional bet.

Across all its slot games, expect to receive free round bonuses which will give you free spins. In addition to that, some bonuses have a time limit, which means you can make as many spins while time permits.

Countdown free round bonuses have a turbo spin mode option. 

Graphics

The themes of the games will take you on an adventure.

I love the thematic backgrounds that give the game a feel of travelling along, like in John Hunter’s adventures.

Pragmatic Play’s table games are as realistic as ever, and the live dealers will provide you with a real-life sense of traditional casinos. 

Music 

Games come with various types of music that fit the theme. Some may be soothing, whereas some are a lot more upbeat. In every case, the soundtrack suits the game in question.

Gameplay

Pragmatic Play titles are adventurous and aim to give players a natural feel of traditional casino games. The company also has a good mixture of classic style slots alongside titles with more modern gameplay elements, like Megaways.  

Casinos Pragmatic Play is working with

As a licensed game provider, Pragmatic Play chooses regulated casinos to partner with. Some of the casinos that Pragmatic Play works with available to New Zealand players include:

Are they optimised for mobile?

Pragmatic Play titles can be accessed using any device, be it Windows, iOS, or Android, and there is no need to download any additional software since the games are developed in HTML5 technology from the onset.
