Their corporate life began as Fast CPU in 1997, providing slot machines, video poker, scratch cards, and arcade games to online casinos throughout the world. Operators continuously returned as access a portfolio of releases climbing to over 250 unique titles. Although company creations lived up to the promise of its name, they failed to make a noticeable splash.
In 2010, Fast CPU disappeared behind a brand overhaul and out stepped iSoftBet to cater to gambling websites seeking top-notch selection. The software developer still prided itself on speedy execution but no longer felt the need to brag about it in a name.
Over the last few years, they’ve quietly grown into a major software provider, primarily due to a long list of branded slots. Releasing many titles licensed from major motion pictures and established musical performers, lots of attention followed.
Throughout the industry iSoftBet enjoys a solid reputation for fairness based on true random number generators (RNGs), accruing few player complaints in the process. Fully licensed and regulated in every jurisdiction products are offered, constant auditing by government agencies ensures fairness and transparency.
Following recent trends of lifelike 3D animation, complimentary background music to enhance experience is standard. Ambiance, a virtual slot machine presenting different symphonic accompaniments for each payline, is widely regarded as their greatest achievement to date.
In general, they’re known for good looking graphics that put user satisfaction before anything else.
More than 400 titles are supplied to partners, covering the entire spectrum of iGaming products, efforts in branded titles a result of being in business since 1997. Recognizable franchises such as Beverly Hills 90210 and 24 headline their portfolio, alongside cinematic strolls down
Memory Lane with films including Rambo, Basic Instinct, and Platoon.
Launching a turnkey Facebook casino called Crazy Slots, brimming with more than 300 machines, iSoftBet is at the forefront of “social gaming” and shared experiences people crave. In addition, inviting friends to partake in festivities extends to proprietary virtual tables and online lottery, Turbo Lotto, strongly encouraging community camaraderie via chat rooms instilling a sense of belonging.
Almost all iSoftBet blackjack has unique functionality, unlike others who often just tweak a rule or two in each variation. As it’s one of the most popular games in the world, they realized additional versions lead to more customers seeking out their software.
The flagship table is old-school 21, dealt from a single deck, naturals paying 3:2, dealers standing on 17. Speed is adjustable and up to 500 units per round are approved. Insurance is of course extended for dealer Aces since it’s one of the most House-friendly wagers operators can provide.
Traditional Las Vegas rules are adhered to in Multi-Hand Blackjack, including doubling on any two cards, participants allowed to stake up to three hands at a time. Antes begin at ridiculously low amounts of 0.10 units, so budgets of all sizes may partake in the action.
Blackjack 3D Multi-Hand
Seeking to recreate real life atmosphere, Blackjack 3D Multi-Hand features nubile animated dealers and patrons milling about in the background. A control panel enables voices, table animations, and background sounds to be calibrated according to personal preferences. Vegas rules remain in effect and three hands are playable at once, however, the wide-angle screen makes card values slightly challenging to read.
Blackjack Atlantic City
Atlantic City rules permit surrendering after receiving terrible hands, saving one-half of antes. At iSoftBet this is a single-hand game with stakes starting at 1.00 unit.
The British enterprise jettisons the entire EU by referring to its European Blackjack simply as
French. Dealers don’t receive hole cards, leaving
double downs in potential jeopardy to after-action 21s.
Further odds imbalances between House and player arrive via doubling solely on a hard 9, 10 or 11. Obviously, this version will only appeal to the boldest of professionals.
An exclusive table for high rollers, Blackjack VIP necessitates extreme financial commitment. Minimum antes are 100 units with limits of 1,000. Super high rollers may opt for the multi-hand spinoff and receive up to five hands per round.
Not many places allow risking 5,000 units a hand, so it’s usually necessary to shop around if looking for this type of aggressive action. Las Vegas rules are in full effect on all VIP tables with little variation.
In iSoftBet‘s world, a less player-friendly game is found than in Reno, Nevada, up Route 95 in the
Biggest Little Town in the World. Dealers hit on soft 17s (ace & six) and doubling is only sanctioned on a hard 10 or 11. In exchange, participants receive nothing of value in Blackjack Reno so there’s not much point in traveling 448 virtual miles to stray from basic versions. Avoid this particular one if valuing bankrolls.
Blackjack Super 7s Multi-Hand
Coming with optional side bets on the delivery of sevens to those seated, Blackjack Super 7s Multi-Hand mostly incorporates traditional Las Vegas rules. First 7s pay 3 to 1, three 7s of identical suits making a 21 awarding a massive 5000 to 1. Pre-deal stake minimums are 1.00 unit with antes of 0.10 to 500 units, up to three hands at a time permitted.
Live Dealer Blackjack
Presently, no iSoftBet live dealer games are available, although it’s assumed they will join countless other large software companies and create one soon. Especially considering live tables are highly sought after in emerging Asian markets.
