History of Cryptologic Software

This is a company that has been around for a while, but it hasn't always been around as a casino software company. The founding was in 1995 in Toronto, and a year later this software development outfit deciding to take advantage of the popularity of the online casino business, and started with software for InterCasino, an operation which is still around to this day.

The company has been certified and/or licensed in various jurisdictions, including Alderney and the Isle of Man, and has been listed on both the Toronto and London stock exchanges. It distributes online casino software under the trade name WagerLogic.

About Their Online Slots Games

Cryptologic answers the call when it comes to producing a wide variety of slot games for its end users. The "classic" slots are usually those that might be called the most traditional, but with Cryptologic they really take on great and unique personalities. There is a short roster of those games, including Aladdin's Lamp, Cash Caper, Rags to Riches, Shoot-O-Rama and Triple Olives. They have five reels, multiple paylines, and very imaginative graphics. These slots games clearly have a look that distances them from the "one-armed bandits" of old.

There is a very healthy menu of "branded" slot games that Cryptologic distributes in conjunction with licensing agreements. And there are a lot of household names that are associated with pop culture, including Captain America, Conan the Barbarian, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, King Kong, Green Lantern and Elektra. One of the more popular slot games in this group is "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," and as you imagine, it's a genuine experience.

When it comes to video slots, Cryptologic has all its bases covered, as they offer nearly a hundred of them for legions of satisfied players. Some of the pop culture brands are included in this group, including Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. With superior video, animation and graphics, these guys really know how to bring the super-heroes to life.

About Their Table Games

Cryptologic produces a lot of games, and these include a number of very imaginative, crisp table games. The American version of roulette is a Cryptologic / WagerLogic staple, as is a craps game that they designed to be as energetic as the land-based game that produces so much energy when it is played live. The company does not make as many blackjack games as some of its competitors; there is a "standard" version, as well as Single Deck, Double Deck and Atlantic City variations, not to mention Pontoon. Vegas Blackjack is one of a number of multi-player table games; a group that also includes Super Fun 21 - which features a side bet that pays off at 200-to-1 - and the always intriguing and simple game of 3-Card Poker.

For those of you who like to play baccarat, there are a couple of versions you can enjoy - a full table edition and a "mini" baccarat game. Some of the other semi-exotic favorites that have developed their own following appear in the Cryptologic portfolio; these include Let It Ride, Pai Gow Poker, Punto Banco, Casino War, Red Dog and Caribbean Stud Poker. There is even a version of Casino Solitaire, which is not found everywhere. Every game has a certain "touch" that is very particular to Cryptologic.
