Live casinos are the most recent development in the online casino world. Live casinos usually offer the most popular table casino games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker and combine online casino play with a taste of the real casino experience by linking players to a real dealer via online streaming. This format was first introduced 3-4 years ago and has since grown in popularity with most of the big casinos now offering a live casino product. Although it is clearly a larger fixed expense for online casino to provide live dealers, even remotely, than is the case with pure digital casino games that require no man power on a game to game basis, players also tend to spend more. Minimum bets are also usually roughly in line with what you would expect at your average physical casino rather than the micro bets available on digital games so players spend more. This means that despite the additional fixed costs a successful live casino offering is a potentially profitable sector of an online casino’s business if run well and with enough players. There are a number of casinos offering live Roulette in the UK as well as Baccarat, Blackjack and Poker and one of the most popular is Betsson Casino.
Betsson’s live casino games are powered by Evolution Gaming, who offer white label live casino games to several online casinos. The economies of scale and expertise leading from one company running the live casino games for a number of online casinos is a business model that much of the online casino world is built on. Most online casino games and engines are actually powered by third party software developers and in reality very few are exclusive games that have been developed inhouse. Rather than dedicate the resources and investment required to produce games and platforms themselves, this leaves online casino brands free to concentrate on providing the best mix of games from different providers and making sure that it is this and their customer service which differentiates them from their competitors and keeps customers loyal.
Evolution’s live casino product is arguably the best currently on the market and this is evidenced by the fact that at least amongst publically listed casino groups whose accounts are available it is the provider who’s product has been proven to be the most profitable for the casinos offering it. Aligned with Betsson’s renowned customer service and attractive bonus schemes the company is one of the top choices for anyone in the UK who wants to sample this new hybrid form of online casino entertainment.
