Playtech bingo

Playtech software also powers a number of bingo sites. Most sites are 'Network Members' of the Bingoland network, which is similar to a network of online poker rooms: the participating sites have shared jackpots, games, chat and backend, and are also listed together at the Bingoland site, with each online bingo site offering slightly different graphics and websites to differentiate them. Some licensees, such as Golden Palace and BetFred, with sufficient custom to sustain a standalone site, have opted for the standalone "Independent Licensee" or "Licensed Network" model, where the only players on the site are those of the individual operator.

Playtech poker

Playtech software is not only one of the leading providers of online casino and bingo game software, but their software also powers a network of online poker room. This network of poker rooms, called iPoker, share the same software and backend, but each online poker site provides a unique look and feel and brand to the actual playing experience.

An agreement was signed between the UK betting company Betfred and Manchester United to initiate and develop the Man Utd branded gaming site.
