What are the main characteristics of Pragmatic Play games?

As we mentioned above, Pragmatic Play mainly offers slot games. With so many slot games on the market, what do they do to set themselves apart from the crowd?

High quality games

Pragmatic Play are known for the quality they put into all their games. Perfectionists to a fault, their games are crafted with great sound and visuals that look amazing on a big screen, yet light enough to perform perfectly on mobile devices, such as a smartphone.

Pragmatic Play games display a wide variety of themes and settings, ranging from the standard fruits and suits to wild flights of the imagination that incorporate world mythology and images from fantasy and science fiction.

If you’re a real fan of slot games, you’ll already appreciate Pragmatic Play for the user friendly and intuitive design they put into all their games so that everyone, from casino experts to rank beginners, can feel completely at ease when playing them.

Additionally, all in-game information is available in Japanese so you can quickly check the game rules and continue your game completely stress free.

Explosive gameplay

Pragmatic Play slots are categorised by their explosive gameplay. They are designed to be ‘high risk-high reward’ games, perfect for players who enjoy the thrill of landing a big win out of nowhere. You can see that explosive, highly volatile gameplay in slots like Peking Luck, where you could win up to 180,000x your stake on a single spin.

If you’re looking for slots with highly volatile gameplay, give Pragmatic Play a shot.

How safe is Pragmatic Play?

Safety is a common concern when playing at online casinos. However, Pragmatic Play has obtained casino licenses from countries like Malta and the United Kingdom and operates in compliance with their strict regulations.

The results of all games are decided using RNG (random number generators) to ensure complete fairness. All RNG mechanisms are regularly inspected by a third party to ensure it is functioning properly so there is never any possibility of cheating or biasing the results.

Some recommended games by Pragmatic Play

Here we are talking about Pragmatic Play, and we’ve hardly mentioned any of their games. For shame! So here are a few of our favourites – all of them available right here at Vera&John, of course. And before we forget, make sure to check them out in Free to Play mode (you need to be logged out) first so you can learn how the game works in a risk-free environment.

Gold Rush

A classic example of a Pragmatic Play slot is Gold Rush. Gold Rush is themed around the wild west dream of gold, with the plucky prospector and his bundles of wild dynamite ready to blow the heck out of a mountain if it means getting rich. Theme aside, Gold Rush is a simple and straightforward game, ideal for beginners, but with a depth of play and volatility that is still likely to excite more experienced players.

Sweet Bonanza

This candy-coated slot is a sweet enough treat as it is, with cluster pays and a tumbling reels mechanic that means winning symbols are removed and the blank spaces topped up with new ones, allowing for more combos to generate from your wins. However, if you go looking for VJ’s Sweet Bonanza, you’ll find a fruity collaboration between Pragmatic Play and your favourite online casino (that’s us!) We asked them to add an extra scatter symbol to their most popular slot, and they increased the maximum payout to 21,100x!

The Dog House

If you love dogs, The Dog House is a must. Chill with the chihuahuas and watch the reels spin while the multipliers pile up, and you’ll reach the max payout of 6,750x in no time at all.
