Pragmatic Play Casinos and Games
Pragmatic Play's background and company information is one of the more complicated in our industry. Originally going back to the year 2007, Pragmatic Play's history began under the title of TopGame which is a name you might occasionally still come across in your internet travels. TopGame had a so-so reputation at best that involved some dodgy games and progressive jackpot pools that were never paid out to players. Move forward to 2016 and the company was rebranded (or purchased, depending on who you believe) and became Pragmatic Play. Since then, the company's reputation and casino game offering have been considerably improved and there are plenty of very reputable online casinos carrying Pragmatic Play's releases. Things become even more murky when we introduce another brand - Octopus Gaming - that appears to be part of the same company. From what we can determine, it is probably dependent on the jurisdiction/countries catered for that depends on whether the company decides to brand new game releases as a Pragmatic Play or Octopus Gaming title. Some players and review websites are still wary of the company which is more than understandable given some unpleasant background but this does appear to be historic and as long as you are playing at a reliable online casino then we see no reason not to recommend taking part in their games. Of course, we keep a regular eye on this. Pragmatic Play certainly has a worldwide presence globally with 'Business Offices' located in Gibraltar and Malta and 'development and operational' offices based in Belgrade (Serbia), Bucharest (Romania), Cardiff (Wales, UK), Hyderabad and Noida (India), Kiev and Zhytomir (Ukraine), London (UK) and Manila (Philippines).

One way to win big playing Egyptian Fortunes is during the in-game bonus round, activated by spinning in three Bonus Pyramid symbols (on reels one, three and five). This will reward you with six free spins and take you inside the pyramid to search for the scroll that will determine your bonus game symbols. There are plenty more in-game features and bonuses and we'll let you discover them. If this seems intriguing then check out Egyptian Fortunes.

Extra Juicy has a standard slot game three reel, five row playing area with ten win-lines you'll hopefully be hitting regularly. There are diamonds to be found on the first, third and fifth reels which will boot you into the free spins bonus round beginning with 12 free spins, with every spin increasing your win multiplier for the next free spin.
Take into account that it's possible to hit three scatter symbols during the bonus round and reactivate it up to FOUR times - building up to a stonking x60 win multiplier. If that monster win potential tempts you, give Extra Juicy a try.

Great Rhino Megaways is a two-to-six row, six/seven reel slot with stacked 'rhino' symbols on all reels. There's a very tempting enhanced 'Double Chance' feature that adds 25% to your stake in exchange for an increased chance of triggering the free spins bonus rounds, described below.
All winnings spins become 'cascading/tumbling', meaning any winning symbols disappear and are then replaced with additional symbols to create extra wins and boost your win total further. Should the replacement symbols create additional wins then these symbols too will be replaced with even more symbols which can continue for some time to create monster-wins. Spin in two rhino stacks and you will trigger the 'Stampede Respin' bonus feature which adds even more rhinos to your win. Should you manage to accumulate 14 or 15 rhino symbols, you'll win one of the two big jackpot prizes.
This game includes an exciting free spins bonus round activated with four or more Rhino Gold Coins where you get to choose from four different free spins options (15 spins x1 win, 10 spins x5 win, 5 spins x10 win and a 'mystery choice') with each having its own variance/volatility and potential for big wins. In these free spins rounds, all the 'rhino' symbols become 'wild' to create additional win-lines. Great Rhino Megaways has an RTP (Return-to-Player) of 96.48% to 96.58% and up to an incredible 200,704 win-lines. Players can stake from just 0.20 to 100.00 per spin in your own currency with a maximum payout during normal gameplay of x20,000 your stake.
There are some similar games already on the market with different themes but we like Great Rhino Megaways and recommend you give it a try. We can only comment based on our own experience but it has proved to be highly profitable.

Hercules and Pegasus is a five reel, three row slot where the designers ask you - the player - 'are you ready to meet a powerful God?', so go into this game feeling brave! With its Greek mythology-theme and an emphasis on the heroic, Hercules and Pegasus transports players skywards to the Home of the Gods, in the clouds above Olympus. The game focuses on the two famous names in the game's title and according to designers Pragmatic Play, offers players a chance to 'win unmeasurable amounts' which is possibly an ambitious claim but as long as your payouts are big and regular then we're not complaining.
Symbol modifiers, wilds and the inevitable free spins bonus rounds are all here for the taking with plenty of additional, exciting and fun features to add to the overall playing experience. For example, reels are enhanced by Bolts of Zeus which can hit reels at any time, replacing existing symbols to create nice wins. Another cool feature is revealed if (when!) you achieve the triggering of both the Hercules and Pegasus free spins - if this happens then both heroes will look to hold your hand to reach the biggest possible wins. Sounds good. Pragmatic Play's CCO Melissa Summerfield proudly announced that 'Hercules and Pegasus is one of the most exciting additions to our slot portfolio'. No small claim.

John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen is a lengthily-titled slot game from Pragmatic Play. John Hunter... etc. is a bright and attractive game with a standard slot layout (five reel, three row) and 25 different win-lines. A free spins bonus round provides an exciting break from the regular game with potential payouts worth boasting about.
The game designers reckon you'll 'discover the secrets of the Aztecs' along the way which we kinda doubt but you could dig up some nice winnings instead.

Master Joker is your typical five reel slot but with a big difference - it has just one row. Not so unusual is the Vegas feel and lounge style music. Wins come from 3, 4 or 5 symbols positioned anywhere on the row, what you're really looking for though is to land the voluptuous, oscillating lady joker (perhaps it should be called Mistress Joker?) on the middle reel along with at least 2 matching fruit/gold bars/7's symbols to receive a spin on the mighty multiplier wheel where your win will be multiplied a minimum of x2 all the way up to a juicy x100. Master Joker is a high volatility slot with, as Pragmatic Play says, a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 96.46%. Bets range from 0.01 - 100.00 per spin.
Master Joker is an interesting enough game to have a go at, there's some impressive attention to detail when it comes to the customisable system settings and thorough game info as is standard Pragmatic Play practice, however we have to say that we found the music bland and the joker lady a little off putting just oscillating/bobbing away in top left, perhaps she could be a little more entertaining or at least less oscillatory! Give it a try, see what you think.

Sweet Bonanza has a non-standard six reels, five rows playing area and 'all ways pays' win-lines. You can win up to x100 win multipliers in the free spins bonus round, making Sweet Bonanza a new potential target for high rollers or players who occasionally like to chase the tougher slots that pay BIG when they pop. Sweet Bonanza scores 7/10 on the volatility scale and this is reflected in player reviews doing the rounds, with wildly different opinions as to whether this game is brilliant or a turd. It would appear the winners love it. The non-winners hate it. Shocker.
As mentioned, it's not a low variance game so you can expect it to run your balance down if the game is in that mood but it could flip in an instant and cover all your losses and then some. It could also blow a jackpot on the first spin you play. Or never. That, as we all know, is the gamble and hopefully we enjoy the thrill of it.

Wild Gladiators is a five reel slot with 25 win-lines and a win multiplier reel where all wins are multiplied up to x10 in the 'arena'. Wild Gladiators also has a 'super win' feature that sounds awesome - guaranteeing that the player will hit one 'wild' symbols on EVERY reel of the slot. On top of all that, there is a free spins bonus round, awarding ten free spins with a multiplier up to x10 on every spin.
Wild Gladiators can certainly be described as a 'feature rich' game and is ideal for players looking for lots of exciting features.

Wild West Gold is described by the designers as 'a fast-paced thriller' set in a frontier town in the American West where the player - you - is on a mission to find riches. The slot layout is slightly different from the norm with five rows and FOUR reels, providing players with a wild-enough 40 different potential win-lines on every spin. Wild West Gold includes everything you'd expect from a Wild West-themed game with outlaws all over the place. To combat their naughtiness, there's a Sheriff symbol that is 'wild' - not only creating additional wins but also multiplying those wins up to x5.
For the most excitement, you'll really be aiming to land three 'sunset scatter' symbols anywhere on the reels as this will trigger the in-game bonus round, awarding the player free spins. During this bonus round there are 'sticky wilds' which do not vanish - they'll stay in place for the entirety of the bonus round! Adding to the win potential of the free spins bonus round, landing additional sunset symbols will award additional free spins an UNLIMITED number of times and can lead to winning up to a yee-haw worthy x10,000 your stake.
