Genii (pronounced jee-nee-ahy) is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on Slot Games.
It should be noted that the Genii website states that they offer 130 casino games, yet the games section of their site only provides 42 at the time of this review.
Genii have a strong focus on slots games and do not appear to offer any table games. Their games catalogue currently includes a total of 42 slots games.
In terms of slots games, Genii offer games that are generally fairly graphically appealing whilst not quite competing with the highest quality at the top end of the market. The older games are weaker in this respect that the newer. All games have a clear gaming interface and offer an autoplay setting that allows the user to select between 1 and 100 spins to play automatically and include autostops settings allowing you to control the autoplayed spins to stop if you receive a win of a pre-defined amount or larger or to stop if your total loss exceeds a set amount. There is no ‘turbo play’ setting when playing Genii games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable. Given that Genii are being offered by UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires publication of this figure, we have managed to review this information for the games that the software provider is not including it as standard. Their games appear to range from 3.85% (96.15% RTP) right up to 9% House Edge (91% RTP). At the lower end this ranges is at the high end of the range commonly being seen in modern slots games and ranges to far above average cost for the sector. As such players should be very careful when selecting a game from the Genii catalogue and ensure they know the RTP information before they play. The bonus features offered in Genii games are of a more basic nature: free spins, Wild symbol features and pick and click bonus rounds.
Genii don’t offer a product that would do well in the modern market as a primary provider, they lack the range of non-slots games to outfit an entire casino platform, but they do make a reasonable addition to game catalogue when a more significant main platform is already in place.
