FunFair Software & 0 Online Casinos Reviewed

Introduction

FunFair Technologies is an online betting software developer that is based in the UK and puts out a series of games specifically for internet betting. The company claims to be using blockchain technology to help power their games, which they claim is efficient, fair, and fast for all parties involved. The company has also put out the fairness slogan “Provably Fair” (prove-ably fair, get it?), which lets players go in and look at the RNG results to prove that the games are fair.

FunFair’s games consist of table titles, slots, and some unique games that we haven’t seen before. The visual flare is there for the slots, but table games and video poker end up looking more or less like what you’d expect to see from other developers.

Things are definitely interesting in terms of what FunFair is trying to accomplish. Blockchain technology is just really starting to be implemented in new ways after years of being a buzzword. Seeing the technology working into gambling is interesting, and we’re very interested to see where Funfair takes things moving forward.


Baccarat


Baccarat
 

The FunFair baccarat game is down to basics, the Player, Banker and Tie bets only. The help file claims an infinite number of decks are used, but the returns quoted in the help file match those for a six-deck game. You will have to decide for yourself what to believe. Here are the house edge figures both ways.

Baccarat — Six and Infinite Decks

Bet Six Decks Infinite Decks
Player 1.24% 1.23%
Banker 1.06% 1.06%
Tie 14.44% 14.12%

Blackjack


Blackjack
 

The blackjack game has the following rules:

  • Eight decks
  • Dealer stands on soft 17
  • Blackjack pays 3 to 2
  • Dealer peeks for blackjack
  • Player may double on any two cards
  • Double after split allowed
  • Player may split once only
  • No surrender

The house edge under these rules is 0.49%. The help file says 0.50%, which is close enough.

I'd like to give props to FunFair for letting the player split unlike tens, which should be allowed in every blackjack game, although the player should never do so. This is a sign of a rare software company that understands the proper rules of their games.

Fun Dice


Fun Dice
 

Fun Dice is an interesting new game that is proprietary to FunGames, as far as I know. The player can pick a number from 100,000 to 890,000 and then bet if a random number from 0 to 999,999, as determined by the roll of six ten-sided dice, will be over or under. Wins are commensurate with the probability of winning. For all the rules and analysis, please see my page on Fun Dice.

Let it Ride


Let it Ride
 

FunFair follows the usual 1-2-3-5-8-11-50-200-1000 pay table in Let it Ride, for a house edge of 3.51%.

Caribbean Stud Poker


Caribbean Stud Poker
 

FunFair follows the usual 1-2-3-4-5-7-20-50-100 pay table in Caribbean Stud Poker, for a house edge of 5.22%. There is strangely no side bet, based on the player's hand only.

Three Card Poker


Three Card Poker
 

Three Card Poker nicely follows the liberal 1-4-5 Ante Bonus and the 1-4-6-30-40 Pairplus pay table. This results in a house edge as follows:

  • Ante: 3.37%
  • Pairplus: 2.32%

Roulette


Roulette
 

Roulette is played on a single-zero wheel, resulting in a house edge of 2.70% on every bet.

Slot machines


Bounty on the High Seas

Treasures from the Crypto

Fate of Thrones

There were three slot machines at the time of this review in January 2019. All three were the usual five-reel type with three visible rows. Features included stacked symbols, free spins, and a "pick 'em" bonus. I liked the Castle Siege bonus in Fate of Thrones, which lobbed cannonballs at an enemy castle, kind of like Angry Pigs. The cannonball seemed to follow a correct parabolic trajectory, which is the kind of details I appreciate. Whoever designed it, I think knew something about physics.

All the games are nicely done in terms of graphics, sound, and game-play. I would definitely say above average for the industry. My advice would be to add more titles and be more creative in terms of the rules and bonuses.

Video Poker


Jacks or Better
 

FunFair's only video poker game is a good choice, 9-6 Jacks or Better, which carries a high return of 99.54%. The graphics and sound are vintage 1980's. Why, I have no idea. I'd recommend they make another version that is more up to date.

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

FunFair Video Poker Alphabetic Order

Game Power Poker Pay Table Return
Jacks or Better No 1-2-3-4-6-9-25-50-800 99.54%

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

Wheel of Fun


Wheel of Fun
 

Wheel of Fun is a simple game involving a 24-number wheel and betting which one a spin will stop in. For all the rules and analysis, please see my page on Wheel of Fun.
