According to Arrow’s Edge introductory page and some casino news, the company was founded in 2014, focusing on developing high-quality online casino software for PC users. Shortly after, Arrow’s Edge has expanded and has so far designed more than 50 online games for both mobile and PC operating systems. The supplier’s software is fairness tested by NMi independent testing agency and the company is operating under Costa Rica licence.
The business vision of Arrow’s Edge is to remain innovative and sync their offer with the latest market demands, thus maintaining the competitive edge of the company’s partnering operators. The main objective of Arrow’s Edge is to go beyond the conventional outline of the current gaming offer and introduce fresh, ground-breaking versions of the classic blackjack, baccarat, and roulette tables.
Although primarily known for RNG casino games, Arrow’s Edge also produces live dealer tables in collaboration with Vivo Gaming, a privately held gaming supplier established in 2010. The tables are streamed live from Costa Rica and Bulgaria studios and hosted by English, Turkish, and Spanish speaking dealers.
How Arrow’s Edge live dealer works
Live dealer games are designed to replicate the actual, land-based casino tables and provide the players with the authentic casino experience. The main advantages of live tables are customizable features and the unlimited capacity (the number of players that can join the session is often infinite).
Arrow’s Edge and Vivo Gaming’s tables are streamed from Maltese land-based casinos and international studios located in Costa Rica, Philippines, Georgia, Colombia, Bulgaria, and Uruguay. The interface can be optimized, and the players will even be able to change the language settings, choosing between more than 20 different languages. There is also an option to approve the bets automatically, save the preferred betting patterns, and chat with the dealers during the sessions.
The bets are placed across a virtual replica of the real table and the players will even be able to keep track of the previous rounds, recorded under Game History. The rules, explanation of the betting process, detailed description of the betting options, and the payout rates are provided under the Help section. Every segment of the game is handled by the professional dealers, including card dealing, shuffling, and operating the roulette wheel.
Unlike most live software developers, Arrow’s Edge offers a demo-play version of the live tables, and those who would like to test the interface can practice-play or simply observe the sessions for a limited amount of time.
Live dealer games from Arrow’s Edge
Arrow’s Edge is currently focused on the essentials and the developer’s selection of live tables includes baccarat, roulette, and blackjack.
There are two live dealer blackjack tables in Arrow’s Edge studios, one of which can be categorized as the so-called “native table”, as it is hosted by a Turkish-speaking dealer. Both variants are played with 8 decks and have two side bets – Perfect Pairs and 21+3.
Table Portomaso, Table Oracle, and Table Oracle 360 are the most dynamic developer’s live games, as they are streamed directly from the brick and mortar casino floors. The players will be able to place bets side by side with the actual casino patrons and chat with the online fellow players. The interface remains the same and the players can still customize the platform, save their favourite betting patterns, refer to the rules, and mute the sound. The rest of the roulette tables are streamed from studios and hosted by either Turkish or English-speaking dealers. The only exception is the American roulette table with a Portuguese dealer, that targets LATAM markets.
Live baccarat games are one-to-many variants played with an 8-deck shoe and paid in accordance with a standard payout table: 0.95:1 for the Banker hand, even money for the Player hand and 11:1 if you bet on a Tie. Side bets are also available:
- Player/Banker Pair;
- Player/Banker Bonus;
- Perfect Pair;
- Either Pair.
The return rates, probability, and payouts for each of the bets can be found under the rulebook, in the right, upper corner of the game screen.
Arrow’s Edge live tables are compatible with mobile device operating systems. The layout will be adjusted to the resolution of the player’s device and the game commands will be arranged differently (placed on each side of the screen, rather than on the top and the bottom).
The live dealers
Live games at Arrow’s Edge are hosted mostly by female dealers who are able to interact with the players in English, Turkish, and Portuguese. During the session, the dealers will comment on the game, greet those who join the table, answer the questions submitted via live chat, and announce the results. Once inside Arrow’s Edge live casino lobby, the players will be able to see a preview for each of the tables and select the one hosted by their favourite dealer.
