Paf Casino Review
PAF Casino Review
PAF – short for Play Among Friends – is that rarest of sites: A non-profit making casino. It’s totally unique in other ways as well: Owned and run by the people of Aland - a group of islands in the Baltic between Finland and Sweden - it was founded in 1966 and gives anything it makes after its overheads have been paid to good causes. As well as their web presence, PAF operate gaming outlets on land and sea, and employ 350 people across Europe.
Their site is a testament to Northern European tasteful restraint, exuding honesty and reliability at every turn - and they’re abnormally hot on organising competitions and prize trips for their players, with a related photo gallery on site to really make you feel like you’re a part of a community. It’s a highly unusual approach but it works.
There are around 100 slots on offer, with some interesting surprises: Games like Hunter’s Inn, Alpine Adventure and Nordic Summer from local developer Simlab lend a suitably Scandinavian feel to the site with their sharp, Flash-style visuals and abnormally rapid instant play launch times. However, most slot fans will find some more familiar games here as PAF have – as you’d expect – gone into business with Swedish-owned Net Entertainment, so if you want slots with all the trimmings then they’re all here: There are around 100 slots in total, with all the big names from Net present, such as Robin Hood: Shifting Riches, Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack Hammer 1 and 2, and – of course - the all-important Gonzo’s Quest.
Net also contribute to the high volume of table games on this site, although not exclusively; you’re offered an impressive clutch of 21 virtual tables with French roulette, Red Dog Progressive and Oasis Stud Poker making particularly noteworthy contributions. As if that wasn’t enough, though, PAF have also bought in live roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack from Latvia to offer you a genuine casino floor experience if that’s what you want.
Whilst you’re here, make sure you also check out the dice games: Apart from Backgammon there are a couple of other highly unusual ideas that make a great break from card games and provide some interesting strategic challenges.
Around 65% of the slots here are provided by Net Entertainment with the rest from Simlab or developed in-house. Table games from Net are also augmented with in-house games, and the live table games are broadcast from Evolution Gaming’s Latvian studios. Everything is designed in instant play format, so there’s no downloads required at all.
Overall Feel and Design
There’s a stylish simplicity about PAF that reflects its charitable status well, and everything is decidedly un-casinolike: You won’t find any dark backgrounds, croupiers or glitzy lobbies here, which feels appropriate for what is ultimately a highly altruistic venture. Navigation is via the tried and tested horizontal tabs/ left hand menu system and you won’t struggle to find any information that you need.
PAF like to keep things simple, and the idea of offering endless carrot and stick-style incentive schemes runs against the grain of the open, easygoing approach that they like to espouse – so there’s no VIP scheme or bonuses of any sort – and none of the onerous terms and conditions that often come with them…
PAF accept Visa (credit, debit, Electron), Mastercard, Solo, Paysafecard and Neteller.
The random number generator used by PAF is approved by Technical System Testing in Canada, and transactions are carried out using P-128 bit Secure Socket Layer technology, so you can rest assured that your personal details are kept safe.
PAF is an Aland company , and is licenced and controlled by the Aland authorities.
