Live casino 101

The essence of the live casino is all in the word “live”. All the games are hosted by live dealers who use real equipment. Everything from the table to the cards, the dice, the roulette wheel – it’s all real. The action is streamed to your screen from a state-of-the-art studio and the dealers are especially trained to interact with players in such a natural way that it’s difficult to believe you’re not in the same room with them. That personal touch is something a lot of players value because it adds the social element that’s such an important part of the traditional mix. What’s more, the user-friendly chat function lets you interact with fellow players, whether they’re in the great country of New Zealand or anywhere else in the world.

When it comes to game-play, not only are all the games in our live casino totally authentic but in some respects the experience is better than what you’d expect in a land-based casino. That’s because a live casino is set up so that you can really get close to the action. Every game has different views, depending on whether you want to keep an eye on the dealer or the cards in live casino blackjack, poker and baccarat, or whether you want to zoom in on the action at the roulette table. Speaking of roulette, our development partners Evolution Gaming, designers of the finest live casino games in the world, have transformed the game of the little ball and roulette wheel into an entertainment spectacle all its own. You can view the game from multiple camera angles, zoom in on the ball, and enjoy action replays and close-ups. It’s really a super-charged experience!

Of course, no live casino is complete without the casual games that attract so many people to online casinos, and we have a game that is calculated to please. Playing the Money Wheel live game is a lot like being in the studio audience of a Money Wheel game, complete with a professional host who keeps you entertained with an endless flow of smooth patter while you figure out what numbers to bet on.
