Pariplay are a small online casino gaming design company, based on the Isle of Man. They began life in 2011, developing quickly into an all-purpose software design house which concentrates on providing excellent business services to its casino industry partners. Its Business to Business (B2B) software and services form the core of its output.
Pariplay designs the software platform and infrastructure which powers its clients’ websites. Everything is taken care of, from financial services like customer payment and withdrawal mechanisms; marketing and data analysis, plus the kind of detailed business analysis which enables site operators to run efficient operations. Needless to say, this also includes lots of business buzzwords like “integration” and “solutions”. I haven’t spotted “turnkey” yet, although any player would be intrigued by the offer of a “technologically advanced front end and world class backend”.
Although I’m afraid I can’t vouch for their back ends, what I can be sure of is that the company also produces some very nice games. Pariplay are responsible for around a hundred different titles across the full range of casino games. The majority are slots, with some excellent and innovative designs among its high quality output.
It is a very varied portfolio, with ranging from the traditional slot genre stalwarts like Lucky Irish, Pharaoh’s Gold and Candy Land to the darker Crypt Keeper, Treasure Fright and the truly bloodthirsty Bloodshot. There are some good retro games too, via its licencing tie-up with original game giants Atari: nostalgia fans will need to look out for Atari Asteroids and Star Raiders.
The company is also behind the design of more traditional games too. It has a bingo design in its portfolio, called Rio Bingo for example. It has also released several table game formats, such as Blackjack, Keno and various versions of Poker. They also produce a range of around twenty different virtual scratch cards.
Pariplay promote their titles as being designed differently to other companies: they say they use “fixed odds” (like in a lottery), rather than the traditional “fixed odds” logic to design their games. It’s difficult as a player to specifically describe the difference in practice, but their slots do seem to have a kind of unique feel to them.
You can try them out for yourself very easily: they are available at many of the most popular casinos for UK based players. These include sites like NetBet, PlayFrank and Vegas Spins Casino.
