There are hundreds of casino software development companies based around the world, all vying for the attention of casino platforms and players. The sector is incredibly competitive, and, as with other industries, it can see trending brands, success stories, and failures. At the moment, there are few companies that can compare with Pragmatic Play in terms of popularity. As the industry becomes more and more mature, Pragmatic is becoming recognized as one of the sector standard bearers.

In short, a top casino will carry a large selection of Pragmatic Play games. Otherwise, players will look to other platforms. We can see on social media, too, that Pragmatic games are particularly popular in North America, including among Canadian players. Whatever the reason, players can’t seem to get enough of Pragmatic’s unique style and fun gameplay.


Here are five of the most popular right now:

Fruit Party

You can always tell when a slot game has reached a level of uber popularity, as you will see a series of clone games arrive as rival developers try to catch some of the lightning in a bottle. Fruit Party is certainly in that league, and it became a smash-hit for Pragmatic within moments of its release. Some players may have a preference for its sequel, Fruit Party 2, but the original remains the best version, and it’s clearly the most popular.


Gates of Olympus

Players can’t seem to get enough of the Greek God Zeus, who rains down lightning multipliers in this high-octane game. To be frank about it, Gates of Olympus can be a little bit tedious in the base game, but it comes alive in a super free spins bonus feature. One of the most popular slots used by casino streamers on Twitch, Gates of Olympus has a mythical status among Pragmatic players.


The Dog House

The Dog House’s popularity is difficult to explain if you are not familiar with it already. One of Pragmatic’s most famous games, it, as the title describes, is themed on dogs. The gameplay is simple and the animations are cute, but it belies the fact that is a game capable of delivering turbocharged winning hits. As with Gates of Olympus, the key element is the bonus free spins game, where players can load up on Wild Symbols for repeat guaranteed wins.


Sweet Bonanza

Every casino software developer has a signature game, one that it markets ahead of all others. Consider it a bit like Super Mario and Nintendo. Anyway, Sweet Bonanza fills that role for Pragmatic. It was clearly the inspiration for the aforementioned Fruit Party, and it carries all the hallmarks of the unique gameplay Pragmatic is noted for. If you are feeling in the festive spirit, the game also has a Christmas-themed version available at most online casinos.


Big Bass Bonanza

Another surprising thing about online casino games right now is that fishing-themed games seem to be all the rage. While Blueprint Gaming – a popular UK-based studio – has one of the most popular examples, Fishing Frenzy, it can’t hold a candle to Pragmatic’s Big Bass Bonanza. It’s a super-fun game with unique features. And, as with other games on this list, its popularity has caused Pragmatic to create multiple versions of the game with unique twists.
