Pragmatic Play Software
When a company ends up with a poor reputation for whatever reasons, sometimes it can be an effective strategy to change their name to start a new brand and build up a better history behind that. It seems that this has been the case with casino software provider Topgame, started in 2007, who has changed their name to Pragmatic Play. With offices based out of Malta and a license from Curacao, they have had a questionable reputation in the past because of their association with a number of shady operators. However, there are reputable sites that use this software that players can enjoy.

The software package itself is based entirely around a downloadable option only. This is a huge disadvantage since so many online casinos are switching over to an instant play option, often incorporating software from several different providers, so this has left this company out of the loop. There's also no mobile option available, which is extremely disappointing and shows that they aren't really focused on being a viable option in the future.
A total of between 70 and 80 slots are available for players, and this includes both classic three-reel games and modern five-reel video slots. Most of these have decent enough graphics and sound, and it's clear that they could produce games of a very high quality. This is very frustrating because it shows they definitely have the potential to be a strong contender in the online casino software space, but they seem content with staying average and not pushing forward to reach the upper end of the selection of software packages available in the industry.
Three types of blackjack, four types of video poker and a handful of other table games rounds out the non-slot selection. Players also have keno and scratch card options, and roulette is also available. The selection of table games as a whole is possibly slightly below average, and it's clear that their primary focus is on the slot side of things. This wouldn't be so bad if they were on an instant play platform that allowed their software to be merged with games from other providers to shore up their non-slot offering, but as it stands with the downloadable option being the only way to play, this is a bit disappointing.
Pragmatic Play's software is regularly audited by Technical Systems Testing, a well-known independent testing firm that has a good reputation. While this shows that they care about making sure their software is fair, they've shown in the past that they're a bit too open when it comes to working with shady operators, and that has tainted the brand before the name change. Between that and the lack of anything other than an old school, downloadable software option, it's difficult to see this software company really moving forward. While it's great to have another option for slots for US players, that's really all they're good for at this point.
