Baccarat


Baccarat
 

Standard baccarat rules seem to be followed. The number of decks are not stated in the rules. They pay a stingy 8 to 1 on the tie (some more generous software brands pay 9 to 1). When I did this review there were two baccarat games in the game menu but only the second one seemed to work.

Blackjack


Blackjack

European Blackjack

Multi-hand Blackjack

Blackjack Surrender

There are five blackjack games available. The best is a tie between the basic blackjack game and multi-hand blackjack, which have the same rules, resulting in a 0.56% house edge.

The European game is a misnomer. Normally the main thing that distinguishes European blackjack is that the dealer doesn't take a hole card so the player faces a possible dealer blackjack when doubling and splitting against a 10 or ace. However, the SoftSwiss game takes a hole card, just as they to the U.S.. So, why they call it European, I have no idea.

The Multi-hand Blackjack Pro game features "Bonus Bet," which is the same as Net Entertainment's Double Jack side bet. The 10-25-100 pay table has a house edge of 4.93%.

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

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

Casino Hold 'Em


Casino Hold 'Em
 

SoftSwiss' Casino Hold 'Em game follows the usual 1-2-3-10-20-100 Ante pay table for a house edge of 2.16%.

What is normally called the AA+ they called the "AA Bonus." That bet follows the 7-20-30-40-50-100 pay table for a house edge of 2.97%. Be warned that the pay table for that bet says a "straight or lower" pays 7 to 1. That would imply that everything won at least 7 to 1. However, I think what they meant was a pair of aces to a straight pays 7 to 1.

Heads or Tails


Heads & Tails
 

This is a simple game based on the flip of a Bitcoin. Wins pay 1.98 for 1 for a house edge of 1%. For more details, and there isn't much more to say, please see my section on Heads or Tails and look for the SoftSwiss rules.

Let it Ride


Let it Ride
 

SoftSwiss follows the usual Let it Ride 1,2,3,4,5,8,11,20,200,1000 pay table for a house edge of 3.51%. There is also a side bet that follows a 6,9,25,50,75,100,2000,20000 pay table, which I calculate to have a house edge of 6.14%.

Minesweeper


Minesweeper
 

This is a simple game of picking among squares on a grid, one row at a time. There are different grids the player can choose from. The bottom line is a return percentage of about 98%.

For more information, please see my page on Minesweeper.

Caribbean Stud Poker


Caribbean Poker
 

SoftSwiss calls their Caribbean Stud Poker game "Caribbean Poker." They follow the standard 1,2,3,4,5,7,20,50,100 pay table for a house edge of 5.22%.

Oasis Poker


Oasis Poker
 

In case you've never heard of Oasis Poker, it is like Caribbean Stud Poker, but adds the option to trade a card for the price of the Ante. The usual 1,2,3,4,5,7,20,50,100 pay table is followed. With optimal strategy, including switching, the house edge is 1.04%.

Three Card Poker


Trey Poker
 

SoftSwiss calls their Three Card Poker game Trey Poker. The Ante Bonus follows the usual 1-4-5 pay table for a house edge of 3.37%. What is normally called the Pair-Plus bet they call the Pair Up bet, which follows a 1-3-6-30-40-100 pay table (including 100 for a mini royal) for a house edge of 5.10%.

Roulette


American Roulette

European Roulette

French Roulette

There are three versions of roulette — American, European, and French. They use the correct terminology, which is very unusual for an Internet casino, in matching the rules to the title of each game, which are as follows:

  • American Roulette: Double-zero wheel for house edge of 5.26% (except for the dreaded 0-00-1-2-3 bet, which is 7.89%).
  • European Roulette: Single-zero wheel for a house edge of 2.78% on every bet.
  • French Roulette: Also a single-zero wheel, but the player loses half only on even money bets when the ball lands in zero. House edge of 1.35% on even money bets and 2.78% on all others.

Royalty Derby


Royalty Derby

Royalty Derby pay table

This is a simple and nicely done horse racing game. There are eight horses and the player may bet win, place, or show on any of them.

Assuming that the house edge is the same on all win bets, I calculate a house edge of 6.05% to 6.08%, depending on the exact odds offered.

Scratch Dice


Scratch Dice
 

This is a simple scratch card game based on three dice. The bottom line is a house edge of 2.78%. Please see my Scratch Dice page for more information.

Slots


Girl Slot

Hawaii Cocktails

Lucky Lady's Clover

Scroll of Adventure

Lucky Blue

By my count there are 17 different slot machines. Most of them are the traditional 5-reel kind. The game play is nice, simple, and fast.

Texas Hold 'Em Bonus


Texas Hold 'Em Bonus
 

SoftSwiss follows the liberal Las Vegas rules of Texas Hold 'Em Bonus, where the Ante pays on a straight or better, for a house edge of 2.04%.

Video Poker


Jacks or Better

Wild Texas

There are only two video poker games: Jacks or Better and Joker Poker. Joker Poker goes by the names Japan Dream and Wild Texas. I could not get Japan Dream to work at the time of this review but was able to see the pay table, which was the same as that of Wild Texas.

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

SoftSwiss Video Poker Alphabetic Order

Game Power Poker Multi-Play Pay Table Return
Jacks or Better No No 1-2-3-4-6-8-25-50-800 98.39%
Joker Poker (kings or better) No No 1-1-2-3-5-7-17-50-100-200-1000 98.60%

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

SoftSwiss Video Poker Return Order

Game Power Poker Multi-Play Pay Table Return
Joker Poker (kings or better) No No 1-1-2-3-5-7-17-50-100-200-1000 98.60%
Jacks or Better No No 1-2-3-4-6-8-25-50-800 98.39%

Conclusion

The software developed by SoftSwiss consists of a full casino suite that includes table games, video slots, video poker, as well as virtual horse racing and parlour games. The games themselves are relatively standard, although the casino’s Baccarat game is a bit stingy when it comes to paying out a tie. Still, the software is pretty decent and players will find a good selection of titles to keep them entertained.
