Original Spirit Review
Original Spirit is an online betting software developer that was founded in 2020 and specializes in providing live dealer games to operators. The company is smaller in scale to what you'd see from the likes of Evolution or Ezugi, but they still manage to provide games like blackjack, baccarat, and roulette.
While the group is smaller, they do provide high definition video feeds and maintain compatibility with both desktop and mobile platforms. It's uncertain as to where the developer will go in the future, but it is always good to see a new developer in a space where there isn't too much competition. I'm certainly interested to see if the group continues to grow and offer new products moving forward.

What little I know about the baccarat game I got from a short Original Spirit promotional video. A quick look at the table showed just the three main bets and what looks like eight decks. The house edge of those three bets are:
- Player: 1.24%
- Banker: 1.06%
- Tie: 14.36%
As with baccarat, I had to go offer a short promotional video for information about Original Spirit's blackjack game. All I could determine about the rules were:
- Blackjack pays 3 to 2
- Dealer does not take hole card
- Dealer stands on soft 17
- A shoe of cards is used, I assume six or eight decks, probably eight.
Based on industry norms, let's assume the rest of the rules are:
- Player loses total amount bet (including doubles and splits) if dealer gets blackjack
- Player may double on any two initial cards
- Player may double after a split
- Player may split any pair once only
- No surrender
- Cut card used
If I'm correct, and eight decks are used, then my blackjack house edge calculator says the house edge is 0.61%.
The roulette game looks like standard single-zero. The house edge under single-zero rules is 2.70% on all bets.
