Tain have been producing gambling software in one form or another since 1999. The first venue to use their software was Expekt sportsbook. Hardly a huge accolade given that Expekt have gone on to be part of the BetClic Everest group – a group has made our Blacklist due to their shoddy customer service and unresponsive nature when it comes to mediating player disputes – however, as far as we are aware Tain have no part in the management of BetClic Everest.
After that in 2007 they merged with Playtech becoming the driving force behind Playtech’s iPoker poker platform which has gone from strength to strength in the last 6 years.
There casino software is a more recent development and if we’re totally honest about it, could still use some work. An instant play platform they offer the casino standards of Roulette, Blackjack and a small selection of other table games. The graphics are of a reasonable high standard and the gameplay is fairly smooth, however they don’t offer any form of autoplay for any of their games or any form of speed adjustments.
Their Video Poker games offer some of the worst paytables we’ve ever seen with no bonus on the Royal Flush payouts for playing maximum coins. Due to this, hitting a Royal Flush when play five coins on any of their Video Poker games will only pay you just over a quarter of what you’d be paid playing at just about any other casino software! There is a autohold feature, but we cannot confirm – not having played enough hands – whether this is accurate across all hands.
Tain have a small selection of fairly basic slots games and do not release their Return to Player (RTP)/house edge figures for these games.
Tain have a reasonable reputation, but still require a lot of work before they’ll make an impression in an highly competitive market.
