Introduction


Connective Games is an online betting group that's based out of Russia and provides casino games, poker, and social betting games to their clientele. The company is licensed through the jurisdiction of Malta, and Connective has clients that include Swiss Casinos, Spartan Poker, Europe Bet, and more.

There are dozens of different slots in the company's library, and the group has also put out some nice table games. 

Without a doubt, Connective Games is a growing developer and it'll be interesting to see just who they partner with to get their games out to as many eyeballs as possible.

Baccarat


Baccarat
 

The baccarat game is simple with the three primary bets only. The help file doesn't say the number of decks, but most places use eight. Assuming that to be the case, here is the house edge on each bet:

  • Banker: 1.06%
  • Player: 1.24%
  • Tie: 14.36%

Blackjack


Blackjack 5 Hand

Blackjack 3 Hand

Blackjack

Single deck blackjack

There are four blackjack games to choose from, but the best in terms of odds is the single-deck game, by far, with a low house edge of 0.28%. Following is the basic strategy for the single-deck game.

3 Card Poker


3 Card Poker
 

Connective Games changes the word "three" in Three Card Poker to the number 3, but the game is the same.  They generously follow the 1-4-6-30-40 pay table on the Pair Plus and the 1-4-5 Ante Bonus.  With correct strategy, which is to raise on Q-6-4 or better, the house edge is 3.37% on the Ante based on the Ante only and 2.01% based on the combined Ante and Raise.  The house edge on the Pair Plus is 2.32%.

Caribbean Poker


Caribbean Poker
 

Caribbean Poker is what is called Caribbean Stud Poker in land casinos. The usual US 1-2-3-4-5-7-20-50-100 pay table is used. With optimal strategy, the house edge is 5.22% based on the Ante bet and 2.56% based on the combined Ante and Raise. There are no side bets.

Oasis Poker


Oasis Poker
 

For those unfamiliar with the game, Oasis Poker is the same thing as Caribbean Stud Poker, except the player may switch a card for the price of the Ante before making the raise or fold decision. The player may actually switch two, at the same time, for double the cost of the Ante, but correct strategy indicates to never switch two.

The same 1-2-3-4-5-7-20-50-100 pay table is used as Caribbean Stud. With correct strategy, including for switching, the house edge is a low 1.04% based on the Ante bet.

Red Dog


Red Dog
 

Red Dog is played under the usual rules and six decks of cards. With correct strategy, which is to raise with a spread of 7 or more, the house edge on the base game is 2.798% based on the Ante bet and 2.375% based on the combined Ante and Raise bets.

Roulette


Roulette

American Roulette

The better of the two roulette choices is titled "Swiss American Roulette," but I have no idea why. Fortunately, for players, it is played on a single-zero wheel with the "la partage" rule, in which players lose only half if the ball lands in zero on even-money bets. This makes the house edge 1.35% on even money bets and 2.70% on all others.

The other choice is "American Roulette" on a double-zero wheel. The house edge is 5.26% on every bet, except the 0-00-1-2-3 combination, which is 7.89%.

Slots


Fruity Fiesta

Witchcraft

Kiss of Luck

3 Elements

Oceans Secret

Tex Co Co

Tiger King

Polar Picnic

The Connective Games slots are well done in every way -- graphics, sound, and gameplay. The features are up to date for 2020 and some I have not seen before in other games. The only negative thing I might say is there are not many at the time of this review at 14 and some appear to be skins of each other.

The corporate web site and the game help files indicate the returns, which sometimes contradict each other. In some cases the corporate web site indicates a range of returns. It may be that the returns are configurable. The returns you see below are based on the game help file at the corporate web site, which are probably set as high as they go.

  • 3 Elements: 96%
  • Fruit-o-Matic: 96%
  • Fruity Fiesta: 95.98%
  • Giavanni's Cat: 95.59%
  • Kiss of Luck: 94% (for 10, 20 or 30 lines)
  • Just a Game: 96%
  • Mr. Illusio: 96%
  • Oceans Secret: 94% (for both 20 and 40 lines)
  • Polar Picnic: 94% (for both 20 and 40 lines)
  • Red Temple: 96%
  • Smile: 96%
  • Tex Co Co: 96%
  • Tiger King: 94% (for both 20 and 40 lines)
  • Polar Picnic: 94% (for both 20 and 40 lines)
