If you’re a Scandinavian player it’s highly likely that you’ve used Aberrant’s software, as some leading bingo operators there are rather partial to it.
However, although there are a number of prominent Swedish-owned gaming software operators, Aberrant are in fact based in Ontario, Canada. Although they do have some non-gaming clients, casino and bingo operators make up the vast majority of Aberrant’s customer base: Some good examples in the bingo world are Maria Bingo, Trendy Bingo and Best Bingo, which – despite their British-sounding names – are all aimed at the Northern European market.

Aberrant do offer a full range of casino games, as you’d expect from anyone offering bingo as a full complement of side games is considered a must from any credible bingo software providers these days. They have a dozen or so convincingly-styled retro 3-reelers, some recently-developed hi-res pub fruit and video slots, and everything in between – plus keno, hi-lo games and the five key variants of videopoker, namely Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, All American, Tens or Better and Bonus Poker. It’s particularly nice to see these on offer as they generally represent a useful stepping stone for players looking to expand their gaming repertoire, and they aren’t often seen integrated into bingo software packages.
When it comes to bingo varieties, Aberrant are hard to fault: Amazingly, some of the largest providers and networks in the business still don’t offer the full quota of bingo types to their players, which – given the simplicity of the game – seems absurd in today’s market. No such problem here, though, with the traditional ever-present 90 ball game augmented ably by a choice of American-style 75 ball bingo games, shutterboard-style 80 ball bingo games and what would usually be considered the newest kid on the bingo block: 30 ball bingo. However, there’s also Swedish bingo available at Aberrant’s sites – not a surprise given their target market – and this game really is quite unusual, played on three 5x5 grids with a unique 5-round structure. Like most other Swedish products it does its job well, delivering accessible, quality entertainment at all times.
Whilst they offer a superlative range of bingo games and some decent distractions as well, Aberrant’s main selling point in our opinion is their ability to make their software look totally different for different clients. Entering a room on one of their sites is not like entering a room on one of the others: This is largely down to the fact the Aberrant don’t run networked bingo, so when you play at one of their sites you’re playing against your fellow roomies and no-one else.
This flexibility doesn’t stop at the bingo rooms either: Unlike many network bingo sites you won’t generally see the same tired old promotional offers trotted out at Aberrant sites – which is also to their credit. Along with this, licencees can set jackpot levels, progressive jackpot reset levels, bonuses, consolation prizes, dynamic card colour changes and more. Their players also get more toys to play with than usual as well, with adjustable card themes and colours, card sizes and more.
As with any reputable bingo site Aberrant use the almost universally-employed P-128 Bit Secure Socket Layer technology on their sites, although any players based in the UK should be aware that it’s always wise to play on a UK Whitelisted site, meaning that it’s operated from an EEA country, The Isle of Man, Alderney, Gibraltar, Tasmania or Antigua/Barbuda.
