High Roller Live Casinos

High Stakes gaming is normally the preserve of land based casinos with tables or rooms set aside to give the player privacy and the service they need.

Online live casinos do cater for higher stakes players and you’ll find VIP tables all over the place as the casinos try to lure high rollers in with promises of VIP Programs, personal VIP hosts, rewards for playing, cash back, gifts & holidays.

While this may all appear great, this isn’t normally the reason why a high stakes player would choose a casino. Of the high stakes players I have met and know personally they are more interested in:

  • The reputation of the casino.
  • The games that can be played.
  • The right level of stakes.
  • No restrictions on depositing or withdrawing.

So, it’s with this in mind that I have researched and written this article.

My objective is to show you the best stakes at the best casinos.

If you want bonuses or you’re more interested in what freebies you get by playing somewhere then I’m afraid I’ve not covered that. Experience tells me that shouldn’t be the main driver for picking somewhere.

If you’ve been browsing around www.livecasinocomparer.com you would’ve seen that not all live casinos are the same, there are subtle differences between them. The software they use, the bet limits on the tables, whether they have private dedicated tables or deposit & withdrawal limits all make a difference.

I’ve used my experience of the live casino landscape and information from my high roller friends (who corroborated the facts about the casinos) to produce my recommendations on the best places to play for each live casino game.


High Stakes Blackjack

First of all house edge is a very important component to throw into the mix and therefore the house rules for blackjack need to be considered. Check out my analysis of blackjack features across the software providers to appreciate the differences and help you understand the reasons behind my choice.

While BetVictor do not have their own dedicated tables anymore they do have the highest maximum stake of any live casino at their BV Grand (Evolution) Live Casino.

The table you need is Fortune VIP.

Stakes on the table start at £250 up to a max of £25,000 a hand. You can play Perfect Pairs £5 – £500 and 21+3 (Rummy) £5 – 250, side bets as well.

High Stakes Roulette

Although some live casinos offer American roulette I’ve chosen to concentrate on the European (single zero) version. This is because of the better Return To Player %ages and the stakes are really low at the casinos offering American Roulette .

William Hill have the highest table stakes on their dedicated table WH Salle Privee, with a table limit of £500,000. The max straight up bet is £1,000 GBP and odds/ evens at £5,000 GBP a spin. You can also play with La Partage at the French Gold Table, but the max straight up bet is only £100.

However BetVictor have a Roulette VIP table with a lower table limit of £50,000, but with higher straight up bets of £1,500 GBP and an odds / evens limit of £10,000 GBP. 

Another alternative is Unibet, who have the broadest selection of foreign language tables. You’ll find English, Dutch, German, Turkish and Swedish tables. The VIP table has max straight up bets of £250 GBP and odds/ evens of £4,500 GBP.

High Stakes Baccarat

In its basic form Baccarat is played between Banker and Player, with you betting on who you think the winner will be. Additional side bets are available on some games. The most common is Pairs followed by Big/Small, Dragon/Tiger & Sum Bonus. There are also some establishments offering progressive jackpots. For further info see my Baccarat Side Bets page.

BetVictor win out with the highest stakes on their Baccarat VIP table where you can bet a max of £35,000 GBP a hand.

William Hill also have come a close second with a £25,000 max bet on their dedicated Macau and Mayfair Baccarat tables.

Both of these have the Pairs side bets.

If you’re interested in playing the Big / Small side bet you’ll find it at Paddy Power with a max table bet of £7,500. This is a Playtech live casino.

High Stakes Casino Hold’em

Casinos running Playtech, Evolution and Microgaming software have Casino Hold’em, but you can forget about any of the Microgaming ones as the stakes are really low and the Playtech ones just don’t get near the stakes of the Evolution casinos.

There are 3 that I can recommend.

ComeOn is new to this list but is a well established casino with a really good reputation, great customer support and fast cashouts. Their Casino Hold’em has a max bet size of £6,000.

While William Hill have their own dedicated table, it’s the general play table where you can play for higher stakes. Max bet limit is £7,500 GBP.

Unibet are another Evolution live casino and their bet limits are £4,500 a hand.

High Stakes 3 Card Poker

3 Card poker is only available at Evolution based casinos. The max table bet at all of the casinos is £10,000. There are two side bets that can be played alongside the main hand and these all count towards the table limit, so you need to be watchful when you place the initial Ante and Side Bets.

There’s not much to choose between the 3:

  • BetVictor has always been good for me, so that’s where I’d play.
  • ComeOn and William Hill are as good.

Watch out at William Hill, the dedicated table has lower stakes so play at the general play table.

High Stakes Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud Poker is played against the dealer. Both Evolution Gaming and Xpro Gaming have versions of the game. In the Evolution version one player hand is dealt and in the Xpro version 5 hands are dealt.

As I can only play the Evolution version I can only personally recommend casinos that have that version of the game.

Most of the casinos have the same stake limits for this game.

I’d recommend 32Red, as they are well known to look after their players really well. VIP’s included. The only real downside is the fairly recent slowing down of payments. You get you money but it takes a few days now, rather than a couple of hours.

High Stakes Ultimate Texas Hold’em

Ultimate Texas Holdem is the latest of games from the Evolution stable. Not all casinos have taken the game, which is rather a surprise as I think this is the best of the poker derived table games.

Stakes, when compared to other games are relatively low. The table max is £1,000 which is more than enough for me, but a bit low for those that like to wager larger amounts.

Unibet and William Hill get the nod here.

Summary of High Roller Live Casinos

If you’ve got this far you’ve probably gathered that there are only a handful of live casinos that have high limit games.

While a lot of casinos have “VIP Tables” they are aimed more at the mid roller than the high stakes player.

It’s possible to play multi hand Blackjack at all of the casinos I’ve recommended, which is another way to increase your stakes on the table.

But there’s more to it than just being able to place big bets. The casinos all have a good player reputation, have good customer support and pay out in reasonable timeframes.
