Everything you ever wanted to know about Play’n GO

If you’ve never tried a Play’n GO slot before, yes you have. We say this because it’s almost certain that you have played one simply because they make some of the most popular slots around. Slots like Tome of Madness, and Rise of Olympus, to name just two. And their popularity isn’t just limited to Japan – they’re popular all over the world as the makers of top-notch video slots.

In this article we’re going to take a closer look at the people behind the slots, as well as at the typical features of some of their most well-known games. After we’ve done that, we’ll recommend some of our favourite Play’n GO games, so you can try them out!

Getting to know Play’n GO

Play’n GO has been around since 2005. They are a Swedish-owned company, with their headquarters in Vaxio, in Sweden and branches in Malta, Hungary and the Philippines. They need to spread out, because, with 600 employees, they are a growing company!

From humble beginnings they have blossomed into a global company leading the way in creating some of the most compelling and innovative video slots, live casino games, and table games in the online gaming industry.

How safe is it to play games by Play’n GO?

When it comes to online casino games, you can never be too careful. It is a legitimate question to ask, “is this game safe?” What we can tell you about Play’n GO is that they go above and beyond to exceed the requirements of their regulators, seeking licenses that ensure their games are safe, regulated, and frequently assessed by third-party moderators.

Play’n GO has obtained 18 licenses, including:

  • Malta’s MGA,
  • Sweden’s SGA,
  • Gibraltar,
  • Spain,
  • and the United States (New Jersey, etc.)

What is Play’n GO’s responsible gambling philosophy?

Play’n GO is one of the major game providers that treats the issue of problem gambling and gambling addiction with the seriousness that it deserves.

Prevention systems are built into their games to encourage responsible gambling and prevent gambling addiction. One thing you can to protect yourself is to exercise your gaming limits by heading to our gaming limits page and setting deposit and loss limits.

An overview of features Play’n GO games

Play’n GO games cover the gamut of themes and feature loads of different mechanics. There are, however, always a few things that mark them out as coming from the Play’n GO stable.

Impressive design

One Play’n GO slot you’ve definitely heard of is Moon Princess, and if you look at other games by PnG, like Reactoonz, Sweet Alchemy, and Viking Runecraft, you can see that they all share the same level of polish and attention to detail.

Strong commitment to music

A lot of more run-of-the-mill game producers see music as something secondary. Not Play’n GO, though. For PnG, music can be the entire focus of a game, or it can bring to life details you might not even think about. You might not know, for example, that in Book of Dead, part of the background music involves the use of a sistrum, a form of rattle used in ancient Egypt!

If you love classic rock and metal, you can find music by ZZ Top, Kiss, and Swedish metal superstars Hammerfall, featured in games by Play’n GO. As they say on their website, they “have a great taste for music,” and the proof is easily found by playing any of their games.

Before we start recommending our favourite slots, let’s take a quick detour to some PnG table games.

What are your Play’n GO table game recommendations?

As well as video slots, Play’n GO also produces a wonderful variety of table games. For instance, Mini Baccarat is a simplified version of regular baccarat with the super-low buy in of just $1, making it accessible if you’re playing on a budget.

In Double Exposure Blackjack, both the dealer’s cards are dealt face up right from the start, giving you the chance to decide if you want to continue the game or not. It’s an interesting twist that instantly makes the game more forgiving for blackjack beginners.

If you love table games, do yourself a favour and use the game search function on the home page to search for PnG table games. Even if they’re not playing with form and mechanic, they are some of the best examples of blackjack, baccarat, etc., around.

Play’n GO slot recommendations

Here are four of our favourite Play’n GO slots. We’re sure you’ve already heard of at least one of them, but if these are all new to you, great! You’re in for a treat.

Moon Princess

There is now a whole series of Moon Princess slots, but the first one is still the most iconic. Released in 2017, Moon Princess is rightly famous for its highly volatile bonus game. While the game ticks along at a good pace in normal mode, you know you’re in for a treat when the bonus game hits and the reels start popping off like fireworks on New Year’s Eve.

Tome of Madness

Based on the Cthulhu Mythos, Tome of Madness is loaded with features that will keep you occupied waiting for them all to trigger. There are 7 – count them – 7 Portal effects that add new wilds and multipliers to the reels or activate other truly bonkers bonus features. Above all else, the music is instrumental (no pun intended) in creating a creepy atmosphere befitting this horrifying little slot.

Rise of Olympus

As you might have guessed, Rise of Olympus is based on characters from Greek mythology, particularly the gods Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus. Kind of like a boy-gendered Moon Princess with gods instead of magical girls. Each god is connected to its own randomly triggered feature and once you fill the Wrath of Olympus meter you trigger a free round where the gods perform their actions in turn.


The latest-but-one instalment in the series that started with Reactoonz, Reactoonz is a super-sized slot with a massive heart and some great gameplay. You can’t stop these alien toonz from growing, so you might as well go along with it. With Mega symbols that dominate multiple reels, you’ll be reaping cluster wins and crossing your fingers for special features like Disintegrations, Metamorphosis, and Radiation. And if you’re lucky, you might even meet Gargantoon…

We hope you enjoyed this brief look at Play’n GO and that you feel inspired to check out the games we mentioned. We know you’ll love them as much as we do!
