Oriental Game (OG) is a live dealer online gaming provider with a focus on Asian markets. The provider, launched in 2014, is located in the Philippines and is licensed by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
The company is a subsidiary of Oriental Holdings, Ltd. which also owns Eastern Hawaii Leisure Corporation and the Oriental Group of Companies, one of the first operators to provide telephone proxy betting in Manila. The fourth component of the group is OG VIP Club, which is a high-roller room in Solaire's Sky Tower at Entertainment City. Solaire handles the six baccarat tables there which are not available for play online through Oriental Game.
Oriental Game has various agreements and partnerships with Asia Gaming, AllBet, Lebo, Play'n GO, and Playtech. They are also an EveryMatrix partner. EveryMatrix is a platform provider and game aggregator with over 3,000 titles, including OG live dealer baccarat, roulette, and fan-tan. The games are available at EveryMatrix-powered casinos in the Asian market.
Software and Games
In addition to live dealer games, OG specializes in white label gaming solutions and services. The "plug and play" online casinos can use games from partners such as Play'n GO and Playtech. In addition to licensing, set-up and launch, OG can help their clients with guidance and support to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship.
For operators or those looking to enter the industry as a casino owner, OG White Label Solutions provides games and website services. Partners can add live dealer games, sports betting, slots, and lottery to their offering. More than 2,000 games are available for deployment. Third party payment processing with over 40 deposit options, a seamless wallet across all verticals, a simple and secure backend management system, and player incentives can all be handled for operators.
While the game of baccarat is a mainstay of the OG live dealer offering, it is also the basis for several game variants. From pioneering multi-camera baccarat in the Asia region with up to seven cameras available for viewing to multi-game, speed baccarat, and other innovations, OG strives to lead innovation in Asian gaming.
Asia-centric games from the ancient to the most modern are all delivered by highly trained dealers over a stable high definition platform for play on desktop or mobile. HTML5 is used to deliver games to any device regardless of the operating system, and an Android app is available for those who prefer a dedicated mobile client.
Traditional Asian gambling games such as Sic Bo and fan-tan share the suite with European classics like roulette and blackjack. Games and support are available in English, Mandarin, Japanese, and Korean.
We played their Sic Bo to get a feel for the interface. The dealers were all pleasant, attractive, multi-lingual, Asian ladies. The game had two dealer/hostesses, one on each side of the dice launcher. The PAGCOR logo was prominently displayed on a placard, and a zoom view of the 3 dice was available after each roll as was a digital display of the results. A digital clock counted down from 30 to 0 between games. The dealers often spoke in unison and when there was a dealer change it was well choreographed with all four standing together and bowing before the previous set retired from the table.
Choice of language under the settings menu changed all displays as well as the language of the pit boss feed. Camera choices included HD/SD and refresh. A mute button for lounge music, dealer voices, and personal microphone had volume levels and on/off toggles. Full-screen view on a high definition big screen monitor streamed audio and video flawlessly with no lag, latency or interruptions.
The next game we tried was multi-table baccarat. Three tables and six table configurations were available. Other single-game choices included traditional, Speed, Squeeze, and Dragon Tiger baccarat, fantan, and roulette. Well presented and comprehensive help files were available for all games including distinct tables for traditional and no commission baccarat. The Wizard of Odds details the house edge and odds for some of the games and offers pictures of about half a dozen of the dealers.
The Final Analysis
Oriental Game provides a high quality multinational live dealer gaming experience. The company is reportedly the fastest growing live dealer provider in Asia, and with good reason.
