Aberrant is a privately held Canadian company specialising in the development and licencing of software in the iGaming sector. They provide turnkey solutions for bingo operators in a variety of countries and are noted for the number of languages that they support and the different countries that use their products.
In addition to their bingo software they currently provide 12 traditional pub-style fruit machines games, 18 contemporary video slots and 4 high definition video slots in addition to scratchcard games, Keno, Hi/’Lo games and videopoker.
Aberrant’s bingo software is particularly flexible, offering 90, 75, 80 and 30 ball games with a rotating card holder, that allows players the option to automatically putting their best-performing card at the top of the screen, and lets them reduce or increase the size of their cards to facilitate the playing of side games during play in whatever format the player feels most comfortable.
There’s also a facility for enabling tournament play, as well as a single play bingo option that awards wins on a pre-determined final call, allowing players to win on more than one card in a single game. Of particular interest at Aberrant, though is the Swedish Bingo variation: This game uses three 5x5 grids, with the numbers 1 to 75 distributed throughout . Games are played in rounds, with Round 1 requiring a line match, Rounds 2 to 4 requiring a horizontal line and Round 5 requiring an entire card match.
With their multi-language slant it’s not surprising that Aberrant power bingo sites in a variety of countries, and their featured sites include the appropriately cosmopolitan Maria Bingo, Feliz Bingo and Utopia Bingo. Refreshingly, when you look at the different sites that they power, the rooms are not identical, bypassing the copycat feel that you often get with some of the large networks.
Additionally, Abberant are one of a number of partners for the Plus Five Casino, a white label casino and bingo product that pulls together Cozy Games and IGT/Wagerworks software as well as Aberrant to provide a one-stop casino and bingo product that licencees can re-badge as they wish.
Aberrant’s President is Moses Leece; Jordan Lee, Daniel Wright and David Leece are Chief Technology Officer, Head of Business Development and Head of Marketing respectively, and the company operates from premises in Thornhill, Ontario.
Promotionally, Aberrant’s software allows for enough flexibility to make each of its featured sites appear completely independent – again, as they are not networked this makes sense, and shows that the bespoke capabilities that it claims to offer do work properly. None of the featured sites had any particularly groundbreaking promotions on them, though the straightforward approach is generally the preferred route with bingo site promos anyway.
Security-wise Aberrant have, as you’d expect, got everything covered with Secure Socket Layer technology in place. This is reassuring as more than one of the sites that use their software are licenced in Costa Rica which is not only a non-Whitelisted country but also the most notorious jurisdiction for online casinos and bingo halls in terms of fraud.
As Aberrant’s sites are non-networked there is no template for payment and withdrawal methods, with some sites offering nothing except Visa and Mastercard whilst others offer everything from major credit and debit cards through to e-wallets, UKash and prepaid cards.
As Aberrant don’t promote networked sites there is no blanket licencing policy applicable, however their corporate site has a dedicated licencing tab that brings up a web form for applicants to supply details on.
Although Secure Socket Layer technology is used on all Aberrant sites, players should bear in mind that it is wise to always play on a site that is licenced by authorities that they can be sure to trust. For UK players that means a UK-licenced site, or more likely a UK Whitelisted site, i.e. a site licenced in Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Tanzania, Cyprus, Antigua or Alderney.
These vary between sites, but typically include between £5 and £20 as a no-deposit, non-withdrawable cash gift and a welcome bonus of around 100%-150% worth up to £200.
Aberrant’s list of adjustable parameters is impressive, with Licencees given control over the following and much more on their sites:
Players are also given considerable leeway with the software, and can set the following:
