History of Pragmatic Play
The history of Pragmatic Play goes back to 2007. It was in this year that the company Topgame Technology was created, which specialized in creating software for online casinos. It offered a wide selection of different games that were available to players not only from Europe and other countries, but also in the United States. At the same time, the US government passed a law banning online gambling, under which the company fell. After the adoption of the law, all major developers such as Microgaming, Playtech, IGT and Cryptologic left the country, but topgame continued to operate. Moreover, she created several online casinos, such as Rome Casino, Diceland Casino, and also bought Black Diamond Casino, Box24 Casino, Spartan Slots Casino. In the process of managing these sites, topgame was repeatedly criticized due to delays in payments to players.
As a result of these factors, Topgame began to sink and needed a reboot. In 2015, a group of investors, united under the brand name Pragmatic Play, bought most of the shares of topgame, as a result of which a rebranding was made. Thus, the new owners tried to clear the developer’s reputation and regain its former popularity. Along with the name change, a new website was created and now it is quite difficult to find traces of the old company.
Below is a brief history (chronology) of topgame, which is the progenitor of Pragmatic Play:
2007 – start of the Topgame

2016-the company begins cooperation with betsoft Gaming, launches a new website, receives a license in Malta, opens an office there, and also opens representative offices in the UK, Romania, Ukraine, India and the Philippines.
