Since 2002 the online gambling industry became richer for an additional member, the Realistic Games software developing company. It managed to persevere in the world of online gambling, which is full of heavy competition, and to acquire a lot of experience along the way.
Between the year of establishment and 2011, this online casino software provider has released half a dozen of titles, including Roulette, Blackjack, Hi-Lo Gambler and La Boule. These third-party platform releases were used by some of the most successful online casinos such are Ladbrokes, bet365, Sporting Bet, Stan James, etc.
The year 2011 was very crucial for this casino software provider because that was the year in which the company developed their own software platform. It is known by the name of ReGal (a short term for Realistic Games Library). The platform was pretty well accepted, and soon it started being integrated into online casinos such are Bet Victor, Ladbrokes, bet365, Paddy Power, etc.
The company continued rising and producing high-quality HTML-based content, including top-notch online slot machines and table games. The peak in their progress was definitely being the EGR Operator Awards Nominee in the Game of the Year category with their excellent creation known by the name of “Super Graphics Upside Down”, which is an online video slot.
The year 2014 brought another important happening for this software casino developer. The Gibraltar Gambling Commission issued an operating license to the company and has controlled its operations since then.
In August 2017 the first ever responsive Realistic Games game was released, which only confirms that the company continues to grow and to satisfy customers with high-quality content.
Realistic Games Software
The ReGal gaming software platform is based on the commercial software such are Oracle, Red Hat and Enterprise DB. The platform itself is written by using the Java EE language. It possesses a very high capacity. It supports a high variety of gaming variations and types, including single player, multiplayer, fixed odds, progressive games and tournaments. It also includes the mathematical compensation.
The fact that should be mentioned is that literally all content that comes in the package with the software platform is produced exclusively by the Realistic Games casino software provider.
The basis of their platform is definitely made of online slot machines. The company has so far released a total number of 21 slots with five reels and a total number of 18 pokies with 3 reels. The platform includes roulette and blackjack titles as well.
There are two types of Roulette Realistic Games games one can choose from: the European Roulette and the American Roulette.
As usual, the American version is played on the wheel with two zeros, while the European version is played on a single-zero wheel. The house edge occupies the value of 5.26% for the American version. The European version comes with the French “halfback” rule, which enables the player to lose only a half of his even money bet if the ball hits zero.
Both variants come with pretty sharp, high-quality graphics and a very neat and orderly interface, so they provide a pleasant gaming experience.
The Realistic Games software platform comes with two versions of this popular card game. The first is called Blackjack, while the other is known by the name of Hi-Lo Blackjack. These versions are essentially the same, except for one difference: the Hi-Lo Blackjack also offers a pair of side bets.
The standard Blackjack carries the house edge percentage of 0.46%. The Hi-Lo version that can be found by playing at the Bet Victor online casino, in which six decks are used, the house edge occupies the value of 2.08%.
Essentially, when playing the side bets, the player needs to prognosticate whether the second card will carry a larger value than the first one. Below is the list of all side bets possibilities offered by the Hi Lo Blackjack:
- Correct prognostication carries a win (no included aces);
- Incorrect prognostication or tie carries a loss (no included aces);
- Blackjack (any) carries a win;
- If the first card is ace and the second occupies the values from 2 to 9, the player scores a win;
- If the first card occupies the values from 2 to 9 and the second card is ace, the player losses;
- The drawing of two aces carries a push.
The house edge percentage of the Hi Lo Blackjack varies depending on the number of decks used:
- 1 deck – 0.60%;
- 2 decks – 1.49%;
- 4 decks – 1.93%;
- 5 decks – 2.02%;
- 6 decks – 2.08% (like at the Bet Victor online casino);
- 8 decks – 2.15%.
