Due to new changes in online gaming legislation in the United Kingdom in September 2014, UK players are now required to play in their own territory when gambling in the real cash mode at an online casino. Some operators chose not to become fully compliant with the new legislation and did NOT obtain a license from the UK gambling Commission.

Therefore almost overnight, several famous UK Playtech powered casinos simply stopped accepting real cash wagers from UK players and this resulted in fewer Playtech casinos being available for UK players. Registered UK members of these casinos were notified of the changes that were about to come into effect via email, plus they were also informed by the casino when they signed into their account. In the case where an operator did not have a UK licensed sister casino that they could transfer player’s accounts over to, the operator simply lost that player’s business altogether.

Online casinos such as Omni Casino and Fly Casino are just two of the major Playtech casinos which no longer welcome UK players. Playtech software can now be found in 300 different gambling portals and the great thing for UK players is that more than 180 of these sites are compliant with this new legislation and therefore do accept real cash wagers from UK players. You will also find that many of these perfectly secure online casinos are controlled by some of the most powerful and most trusted online & offline gambling operators in the world.

The remaining Playtech casinos which are NOT currently licensed by the UK gambling Commission may have applied for a UK license, but the Gambling Commission will not just hand out a license overnight, it takes time. In other words, you may start seeing even more Playtech casinos becoming available throughout 2015. Some of the best Playtech powered casinos which are now available for UK players include (in no particular order) sites like Betfred Casino, Paddy Power Casino, Genting Casino, Ladbrokes Casino, Gala Casino, Coral Casino, Betfair Casino, William Hill Casino, BetVictor Games and Bet365 Casino.

These top-rated Playtech casinos are generally connected to cross-platform gambling portals which offer numerous gambling products. For example, you can also generally find bingo, sportsbetting, poker, lottery/lotto, live dealer and mobile products, as well as perhaps a ‘Vegas’ product and/or a ‘Games’ product at these sites. The best Playtech casinos for UK players that were mentioned above are all free to sign up to and they all have some great welcome bonuses currently available for new players. They also run some attractive online casino loyalty rewards programs.

If you do end up playing at any of these highly recommended Playtech powered casinos, be sure to keep an eye out for some of Playtech’s best online casinos games, some of which include the branded Marvel slots (The Incredible Hulk, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Spiderman: Attack of the Green Goblin, Iron Man 1, 2 and 3, Blade, Daredevil, Punisher – War Zone, X-Men, The Avengers, Captain America, Thor – The Mighty Avenger and Fantastic Four). Also keep an eye out for Pink Panther, Monty Python’s Spamalot, The Sopranos, Gladiator Jackpot, Beach Life, Baywatch, Battle of the Gods, Fortune Hill and Piggies and the Wolf. You can play on any of these games in the real money mode using UK pounds or you can play for fun in the free play demo mode.
