Many slot games are available to play for free on the Platipus Gaming web site, where I got these screenshots from. The graphics and sound are competitive with other companies in that space.

I could find the return percentage listed in the help file for one game only, Magical Mirror at 95.02%.

Baccarat

Both baccarat games follow the standard rules with a 5% commission on Banker bets and the Tie pays 8 to 1. No side bets.

Blackjack

Both blackjack games seem to have the following rules:

  • Six decks
  • Dealer stands on soft 17
  • Dealer does not peek at hole card. If the dealer gets a blackjack with a 10 face up, then the player will lose only the original wager. However, if the dealer gets a blackjack with an ace face up, then the player will lose all money bet, including on doubles and splits.*
  • Double after split allowed
  • Player may split once only
  • No surrender

According to my blackjack house edge calculator and list of rule variations, the house edge is 0.47%. This is contrary to the 2.67% claimed in the help files.

Following is the basic strategy under the Platipus rules. Click on image for a larger version.

Notes:
* The rules table does not support the Platipus rule of effectively only peeking under a 10. Since the 10 is the more valuable card to peek under, I chose to answer peek question as "yes."

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