BGAMING Software & 20 Casinos Reviewed

Introduction

In 2018 cryptocurrency specialist developer SoftSwiss re-branded their software development team to BGAMING. SoftSwiss remains as a software platform, which has become one of the main solutions for those that want to prioritize Bitcoin and other crypto-coins as their primary financial option. BGAMING is now the name behind the group’s casino games, which is decent in size and scope. Based out of Belarus, the company maintains what helped them become a good developer in the past

As of press time, there are more than 50 different titles available from BGAMING, and they’ve all been developed from their time as SoftSwiss. The games include video slots, blackjack, baccarat, Casino Hold’em, Caribbean Stud Poker, and more. BGAMING designs their games in HTML5 format in order to allow for mobile play, although desktop compatibility is also baked in. The software is audited and certified by both BMM Testlabs and iTechLabs.

While BGAMING was still known as SoftSwiss, our sister site LCB conducted an interview with the group’s CEO Ivan Montik. You can read that interview, which gives some insight into how the company does business .

Baccarat


Baccarat
 

The baccarat game is pretty standard. Just the three main bets, Banker, Player, and Tie. The Tie bet pays the stingy 8 to 1 odds.

Blackjack


Blackjack

Blackjack Surrender

Blackjack Multi-Hand Pro

Casino Hold 'Em


Casino Hold 'Em
 

BGaming follows the usual Let it Ride 1,2,3,4,5,8,11,20,200,1000 pay table for a house edge of 3.51%. There is also a side bet that follows a 6,9,25,50,75,100,2000,20000 pay table, which I calculate to have a house edge of 6.14%.

Double Exposure

The BGaming web site indicates the existence of a Double Exposure game, but I can't get it to work nor see a help file. For that reason, we know nothing about it at this time.

Heads or Tails


Heads or Tails
 

This is a simple game based on the flip of a Bitcoin. Wins pay 1.98 for 1 for a house edge of 1%. For more details, and there isn't much more to say, please see my section on Heads or Tails and look for the SoftSwiss/BGaming rules.

Hi-Lo Switch

The BGaming web site indicates a game called Hi-Lo Switch, but the "play" button isn't working. I love to analyze a new game, so if anyone can give me a working link to it, please do.

Let it Ride

Minesweeper


Minesweeper
 

This is a simple game of picking among squares on a grid, one row at a time. There are different grids the player can choose from. The bottom line is a return percentage of about 98%.

For more information, please see my page on Minesweeper.

Caribbean Stud Poker


Caribbean Poker
 

BGaming calls their Caribbean Stud Poker game "Caribbean Poker." They follow the standard 1,2,3,4,5,7,20,50,100 pay table for a house edge of 5.22%.

Oasis Poker


Oasis Poker
 

In case you've never heard of Oasis Poker, it is like Caribbean Stud Poker, but adds the option to trade a card for the price of the Ante. The usual 1,2,3,4,5,7,20,50,100 pay table is followed. With optimal strategy, including switching, the house edge is 1.04%.

Three Card Poker


Trey Poker
 

BGaming calls their Three Card Poker game Trey Poker. The Ante Bonus follows the usual 1-4-5 pay table for a house edge of 3.37%. What is normally called the Pair-Plus bet they call the Pair Up bet, which follows a 1-3-6-30-40-100 pay table (including 100 for a mini royal) for a house edge of 5.10%.

Pontoon

The BGaming web site indicates they have a Pontoon game, but the play link doesn't work and they don't have a "details" button, as they do for most of their other games. So, at this time, we know nothing about it.

Roulette

Scratch Dice


Scratch Dice
 

This is a simple scratch card game based on three dice. The bottom line is a house edge of 2.78%. Please see my Scratch Dice page for more information.

Slots


Aztec Magic Deluxe

Coffee Shop

Brave Viking

Desert Treasure

Fire Lightning

Lady's Lucky Clover

Platinum Lightning Deluxe

Princess Royal

Sloto Mongo

West Town

These slot machine images were taken from the web site. They have buttons to play them, but none worked at the time of this review. Two of the game indicated the theoretical returns, as follows:

  • Bob's Coffee Shop — 96.50%
  • Fire Lightning — 97.61%

Texas Hold 'Em Bonus


Texas Hold 'Em
 

SoftSwiss follows the liberal Las Vegas rules of Texas Hold 'Em Bonus, where the Ante pays on a straight or better, for a house edge of 2.04%.

Video Poker


Jacks or Better
 

As far as I know, the only video poker game by BGaming is 8-6 Jacks or Better, with a return of 98.39%, assuming optimal strategy.

The following table shows the Video Poker games available in alphabetical order.

BGAMING Video Poker Alphabetic Order

Game Power Poker Pay Table Return
Jacks or Better No 1-2-3-4-6-8-25-50-800 98.39%

Here is the same list in returns range, choose your game wisely.

BGAMING Video Poker Return Order

Game Power Poker Pay Table Return
Jacks or Better No 1-2-3-4-6-8-25-50-800 98.39%

Wild Texas

The BGaming web site lists a game called Wild Texas, but, again, the "play" button isn't working. Once I find more information about this game, I'll be sure to update this page.

Conclusion

Although the name has changed, everything has stayed the same with BGAMING. You’re still going to end up finding a good number of games, most of which have decent quality. If you were a fan of the games when they were a SOFTSWISS, you’re going to love what you see with this new name.
