Playtech began developing gaming software in 1999. After signing a deal with an online casino operator, the first Playtech casino opened its virtual doors in 2001. The gaming software provider branched out with Bingoland, its bingo network, in 2003. In 2004, the iPoker network was launched, taking the company into yet another popular gaming area. In 2005, another big step was taken when Playtech offered Mobile Casino Gaming and also received its TST random number generator certification. In 2006, Playtech software was approved by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission. In 2010, Playtech won the eGaming B2B Award for Innovation in Slot Provision and the International Company of the Year at the AIM Awards. The company has won other awards and has entered numerous partnership agreements, and has continued to license a large number of casinos.
