22 July 2021

Pragmatic Play is a reputable game provider with many popular titles, such as Buffalo King, The Dog House Megaways, Great Rhino, Greek Gods, and Sweet Bonanza Xmas. The company was founded in 2015, so it is still considered young in the industry.

However, Pragmatic Play has grown into a leading software provider and has games in more than 100 casinos, including some famous brands. The games are designed using HTML5, so you are compatible with Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, iPads and computers.

Pragmatic Play is a highly decorated provider owning licenses from the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Gibraltar Gambling Commission (GGC), Romania, and Netherlands (Antilles). All games are independently audited for fair results by Technical Systems Testing (TST). Here's an overview of new games the provider is releasing for summer 2021.

Upcoming Slot Games 

Like most developers, Pragmatic Play releases new games each year to keep growing its library. The provider has announced a couple of titles scheduled for Q3 release into the public markets (casinos and gambling sites). Just recently, the company announced five new slots for August, September, and October.

This includes Aztec King Megaways, Bigger Bass Bonanza, Piggy Bank Bill$, Yum Yum Powerways, and Rise of Giza: PowerNudge. All the titles have been designed to the standards we have come to identify with Pragmatic Play games and run efficiently across mobile and desktop devices. Below are two upcoming games players should watch out for in casinos that feature games from the provider.
