Review of PlayPearls casino software
PlayPearls is an online gambling software developer that was recently formed and offers its games to developers such as NorseBet. Although being a newer entrant to the online gambling market, the company has a varied library of games already that consists of classic and video slots, video poker titles, and the ever so entertaining scratch cards (yes, I am being sarcastic). The developer has managed to create some decent looking games, but a lack of a random number generator (RNG) certification or any evidence of outside auditing of the developer's games unfortunately calls the fairness of the games into question.
Software and Games
PlayPearls has a diverse library of games, given that it was founded relatively recently in 2012. The company has managed to come up with a series of mostly standard themes and features for their slots, which are definitely the most extensive of PlayPearls' gaming library. Games like Juice Box, Las Vegas, Gangster City, and Uga Age all stand out in terms of having pretty good visuals, though overall the production values of these games are nowhere near the quality of industry leading developers. Some of the older games look almost amateurish in comparison to titles from say Play'n Go, Thunderkick, or Net Entertainment. On a more positive note, the fact that they are all developed in HTML5 makes them compatible with almost any user device out there including mobile phones and tablets.
I have to say also that PlayPearls may just have a candidate for most awesome (or terrible depending on how you look at it I suppose) title for a slot machine ever in "Chubby Princess". Yes, the mind does indeed boggle.
PlayPearls also offers live dealer casino games as part of its white label platform. These lives games allow you to play roulette, blackjack, and baccarat which are all broadcast from inside real land based casinos. However they are in fact re-selling the games from Vuetec subsidiary, Actual Gaming, and you can learn more about them by reading the linked articles.
Lack of independent certification
As unique as PlayPearls' game library is, the lack of a RNG certification or any published audits of its game results is extremely concerning. There are no theoretical return to player (RTP) percentages that we could locate for any of the games, either via in game paytables or on a casino website that runs the platform. The company is basically asking players to trust in its commitment to fairness, despite having an almost non-existant track record.
PlayPearls is a relatively obscure online casino platform provider that has only a few licensees that most people would never have heard of. Its games are average at best, and it provides no assurances of the safety or fairness of its games. As such, and until this situation changes, I would urge caution for anyone tempted to try a casino running on this platform.
