PureRNG Review

Introduction


PureRNG produces slots and table games for online casinos, with the emphasis clearly on the latter. The company is determined to change the way table games are played at online casinos. It’s about time someone did, as the selection of games is quite uniform across all game providers, big and small. 

How does the company seek to change the balance? First, by bringing the games to the era of mobile gaming. Fully optimised, you can play these games on the go, whenever best suits you. Beyond this, the games have received updates and new functions, mainly in the field of bonuses and achievements. You might be familiar with such things from online slots, but you can hardly ever find them in table games. That is about to change now.

Combining the technical innovations with gamification and simple design has already resulted in games that look and feel different. Read our review and tips, or jump in with the games right away.

Table Games

Table games are not where PureRNG does their best work. The graphics are very simple. Overall, it seems somebody was in a rush to get them out. Most rules are fairly standard, but a noteworthy exception is Big Roller Poker, their version of Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em, where they lower the maximum raise after the flop to 3x, as opposed to the usual 4x. This is a player killer, increasing the house edge from 2.18% to 9.86%. Another warning is issued for their terrible scratch card games, with returns ranging from 54% to 72%. Some state lottery games have better odds than that. Both these games get a Wizard finger wagging of shame.

Spin 2 Win


Spin 2 Win
 

Spin 2 Win (also known as Spin to Win and Wheel of Fortune) is a roulette-variant, played on a wheel numbered 1 to 17, with a random multiplier applied to a base win of 10 for 1. The bottom line is a return of 97.375%.

For all the rules and analysis, please see my page on Spin 2 Win.

Blackjack 11


Blackjack 11
 

Blackjack 11 is the same thing as Easy Jack, a simplified version of blackjack where the goal is to get closest to 11. The full rules can be found on my Easy Jack page.

PureRNG does not state the number of decks used, but I can say the house edge is 0.94% with six decks. PureRNG claims a return of 94.91%, for a house edge of 5.09%. Where they get that figure, I don't know. You can decide for yourself who to believe.

They also offer the same Dealer Bust side bet that Easy Jack does, with the same 3-4-10-50-500 pay table. Assuming six decks, the house edge on the side bet is 9.51%.

The proper strategy is the same as the dealer, hit on six or less and stand on seven or more. Six is a very a borderline play. To cut down the house edge slightly, stand on a six if it is composed of two or more cards.

Big Rollover Poker


Big Rollover Poker
 

Big Rollover Poker is the same thing as Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em, except the large raise is a mandatory 3x, as opposed to the 3x or 4x in Ultimate. This dreadful rule change increases the house edge from 2.18% to 9.86%. For this reason, I urge you not to play this game.

For more information, please see my page on Big Rollover Poker.

Baccarat

At the time of this review, on August 3, 2021, the baccarat game was not working. When I tried to play it I got the error message you see here.

Blackjack


Multihand blackjack
 

PureRNG offers two blackjack games -- multi-hand and single-deck. The multi-hand game can be played one to five hands at a time and uses eight decks. The single-deck game can be played on to three hands at a time.

The rule screen did not address whether double after a split is allowed in the single-deck game. By omission, I assume it is not. I couldn't play that game or get a screenshot, because the minimum bet in free-play mode was $1 and the they started me with only $0.50. That is strange because other games started me with a generous $1,000,000.

The rules table shows the better single is single-deck with a house edge of 0.48%.

Both games offers the version of the 21+3 side bet that pays 9 to 1 for all straight and flush hands, based on the player's initial two cards and the dealer's up card. The house edge in the single-deck game is 13.30% and in the eight-deck multi-hand game is 2.74%.

The following table shows the Blackjack games available in alphabetical order.

Casino War


Casino War
 

PureRNG calls their Casino War game Multihand Casino War. The player may play up to five hands at once against a single dealer card. They follow what I call the "liberal version," where the Raise pays 2 to 1 for a tie after a tie. The tie bet pays the usual stingy 10 to 1 odds.

As usual, they don't state the number of decks used. Assuming six decks, the house edge on the base bet, assuming the player always goes to war after a tie, which he should, is 2.33%. On the side bet the house edge is 18.65% (ouch!).

Let it Ride


Let it Ride
 

The PureRNG web site lists a Let it Ride game, but when I tried to play it for purposes of this review I got an error message. Sorry, but I can't comment on this game until it's working.

Three Card Poker


Three Card Poker
 

PureRNG calls their Three Card Poker game Tri Card Poker. The Ante Bonus pay table is 1-4-5, for a house edge of 3.37%. The Pairplus pay table is the liberal 1-4-6-30-40, for a house edge of 2.32%. For more information, please see my page on Three Card Poker.

Roulette


European Roulette

American Roulette

PureRNG offers the usual two versions of roulette, as follows:

  • European — This single-zero wheel offers a 2.70% house edge on all bets.
  • American — This double-zero wheel offers a 5.27% house edge on all bets, except the 0-00-1-2-3 combination at 7.89%.

Scratch Cards


Mysterious Lamp

Pirates Plunder

The Two Emperors

King's Alchemist

Dream Vacation

PureRNG scratch cards seems more or less the same. A 3x3 card where the player must get the same symbol three time to win. Some indicate a free game bonus round.

More importantly, the returns on these are terrible. Here are some returns I checked, as reported in the help files.

  • Pirates Plunder — 54.00%
  • Dream Vacation — 54.46%
  • The Two Emperors — 70.05%
  • Kings Alchemist — 70.08%
  • Mysterious Lamp — 71.91%

Slot machines


Downtown Vice

Hello New York

Hello Paris

Junkyard Super Wheels

Lucky Liberty

Millionaire Super Wins

Mystic Grounds

Sky Patriots

Slot are where PureRNG does their best work. Most of the games are pretty standard in terms of game play, with free spin and/or a pick'em bonus. However, I would like to draw attention to the good work done in Junkyard Super Wheels, which replicates the popular Lightning Link bonuses by Aristocrat. I knew somebody would eventually copy that.

Overall, the graphics and sound are well done, but short of the industry's best. The themes are generally soft and fun. Returns are also average for the industry. Here are some I checked. These are going by the help files, as opposed to promotional literature, which sometimes provided different figures.

  • Junkyard Super Wheels — 94.57%
  • Hello New York — 93.95%
  • Sky Patriots — 95.69%
  • Lucky Liberty — 96.69%
  • Mystic Grounds — 96.50%
  • Downton Vice — 95.00%
  • Hello Paris — 95.12%

Texas Hold 'Em Bonus


Texas Bonus Hold 'Em
 

PureRNG switches the words around in their Texas Hold 'Em Bonus game to Texas Bonus Hold 'Em. I am not fooled.

They follow the liberal Las Vegas rule of paying even money on the Ante with a straight or higher. The house edge, defined as the ratio of expected loss to the Ante bet, is 2.04%.

They follow the 3-5-10-15-20-25-30-1000 pay table for the side bet, which as a house edge of 8.54%.

For more information about the rules and strategy, please see my Texas Hold 'Em Bonus link above.

Video Poker


Jacks or Better
 

Pure RNG offers only one video poker game, Jacks or Better. They nicely offer the 9-6 "full pay" pay table, with a return of 99.54% with optimal strategy.

Beware the auto-hold feature, which seems to hold pat wins only.

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

Game Power Poker Multi-Play Pay Table Return Live Game
