Best Live Casinos

best live casinos

I’m often asked which are the best live casinos to play at?

It’s a really difficult question to answer as there are so many variables in what makes the “Best”!

For me, “Best” means the casino has the game I want to play at the right stakes and processes my withdrawal quickly. Also, the ambience has a lot to do with it so my Best can change quite often with how I’m feeling.

One day it might be Blackjack, another Roulette and another 3 Card Poker.

Sometimes I might want a chat, others I might want a quick game, others a quiet game.

So you see it all “depends“.

I’ve put together this list of my favourite live casinos. They are my “Best” I suppose because I keep going back to them.

Hopefully one will tick the box you’re after. I do know that you’ll not be disappointed with any of them.

Summaries of each Live Casino are at the bottom of the table. Just select “Go To Summary” and you’ll jump right there.

Leo Vegas Live Casinos

Leo Vegas only really started investing in Live Casino in 2015, with the first being the very good Evolution Gaming solution.

Since then they’ve gone bonkers and now have 7 Live Casinos and their very own dealing room “Chambre Separee” based in Evolution’s studios.

Not all the live casinos can be played by all players. Country restrictions apply with the most stringent being the UK, where players are only able to access the Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming & NetEnt solutions due to licensing restrictions.

  • Software – A real mix that will suit most players. Software providers include Authentic, Extreme Live Gaming, NetEnt, Portomaso (Wirex), Evolution, Ezugi & LuckyStreak. The pick has to be Evolution for it’s all round solution. 
  • Games – It’s more a case of what they don’t have. Trust me it’s not much. There are games streamed from studios (Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Poker, Dreamcatcher and Ultimate Texas Hold’em) and a number where Roulette tables are streamed live from land based Casinos in Malta and Gibraltar.
  • Tables – Lots of general play tables, but the pick of the bunch are the dedicated Leo Vegas Blackjack and Roulette tables in the Chambre Separee. The Party table is really chatty, sometimes a bit loud in a good way and the conversation is always about the current day events.
  • Stakes – A good range of table stakes will suit most people.
  • Banking – A comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods are available. Using my Debit Card withdrawals are normally back in my bank account in a couple of days.
  • Promotions – On table promotions at the Chamber Separee.
  • Customer Support – Very good with online chat.

Genting Live Casino

Genting Live Casino underwent a complete makeover with their live casino in 2016 and they have invested heavily in getting right.

They have ended up with two dedicated studios, Genting and for VIP / High Rollers the Crockfords Live Casino.

What they have effectively done is bring their Land Based experience to the online world and they’ve done it very well. I particularly like the dedicated 3 Card Poker table.

The playing environment is one of the quieter ones and you get a more personal feeling when playing here. It’s a good place to play if you just want to get on and play.

If you like a chat then it’s quiet enough to hear the dealers clearly, which is something that I always look for.

  • Software – They use arguably the best live casino software in the marketplace for a studio-based live casino. The software interfaces are in full HD with auto sensing streaming to give you the best playing experience for your connection speed. The new HD Roulette interface is really clean and offers a great alternative to Immersive Roulette.
  • Games – They’ve taken all the games that Evolution has to offer and have a number of them in their dedicated studios. They are one of a few to have a dedicated 3 card poker table.
  • Tables  – Lots of dedicated tables at both the Genting and Crockfords studios. Access to the Crockfords studio is by invitation only and you can book a table for your own exclusive play if you want privacy to play with friends.
  • Stakes – The stakes at the Genting studio are on the lower side. VIP and High Rollers can play at Crockfords with those players getting a true VIP experience to go with their betting limits.
  • Banking – No drama here, most of the standard banking options are available. Withdrawals happen in a reasonable time depending on your deposit method.
  • Promotions – Regular promotions and bonuses are provided at the tables.
  • Customer Support – Very good.

Celtic Live Casino

Another great option is Celtic Casino.

Although they don’t have the same range of games as an Evolution-based casino, they do have one of the best live blackjack games out there.

Blackjack is played with 6 decks with an Early payout that improves the RTP slightly. An edge is an edge and if I’m looking to make my bankroll last longer then I play here.

Also, the new HD tables make such a difference to the playing experience. 

  • Software – They use software from Visionary iGaming which is a South American based company.  The studios are based out of Costa Rica, but the default table language is English, followed closely by Spanish.
  • Games – There’s just a core set of live games, Blackjack, Roulette & Baccarat. Blackjack is played with 6 decks in two versions, regular 7 seat Blackjack and Blackjack with Early Payout. Both can be played with a full range of blackjack side bets. American and European Roulette versions can be played, although why anyone would choose to play the American version with it’s lower RTP over European Roulette is beyond me!. Baccarat has a complete range of side bets which is fairly rare across live casinos, you normally get some but not all!.
  • Tables – No dedicated tables here, just the general play tables that are shared with other casinos using VIG.
  • Stakes – Stakes will suit low roller players better.
  • Banking – A good set of banking options that cater for all players.  Cash out times are reasonable, not the quickest, but certainly not the slowest.
  • Promotions – There are promotions but not at the table.  I don’t get too excited about them as the wagering requirements are a pain.  I prefer when there are tournaments or cash back offers which are sometimes offered.
  • Customer Support – this has improved immensely and is now available 24×7. I’ve put them through their paces few times and got good results. 

William Hill Live Casino

If I was pushed to choose just one then I would probably recommend William Hill as the best all round live casino as they have the most extensive set of dedicated tables of any live casino.

Getting a seat is never really a problem and on table promotions are plentiful, so you get additional chances to pick up prizes and some additional cash.

I also like the different dedicated rooms as each has a unique feel to it. So I’ll play in different ones depending on my mood.

  • Software – They use Evolution Gaming Software which is the market leader, well for European-based players anyway!. They also have a Playtech live casino that offers players a slightly different experience.
  • Games – They have a full selection of live casino games – Blackjack with a comprehensive selection of blackjack side bets, Roulette, Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em & Dreamcatcher. 
  • Tables – They have a large selection of tables, with each game type having its own William Hill dedicated tables.
  • Stakes – They offer both low and high stakes play, so whatever level you play at there is something to suit you.
  • Banking – There is a comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawal options. Cash out times are 24 hours but there is a reverse pending time of 24 hours. Cashouts can also be made at weekends.
  • Promotions – Because they have their own tables they are able to offer on table promotions on a regular basis. This means you can win on the spot prizes or be entered into draws to win some cool prizes, like holidays or the latest tech devices.
  • Customer Support – To be honest, I’ve had a mixed experience with customer support. I use the online chat facility and at times they can be very quick to respond and at others not so quick. However, this is fairly consistent with most online casinos.

Bet365 Live Casino

Bet365 are the only Playtech based live casino to make my list. Betfair is another contender but I had to choose one and Bet365 got the nod.

I play mainly Blackjack and I really like that they have both European and Vegas rules. The Asian and European tables give plenty of variety which I like.

  • SoftwarePlaytech live casino software with both European and Asian studios on the site.
  • Games – There is a wide selection of games from both studios with plenty of variations. You’ll find Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, Hi-Lo, Sic Bo & 3 Card Brag.   
  • Tables – There are dedicated Blackjack and Roulette tables and it’s possible to book one of the Blackjack tables for private play. Somehow I manage to get a dedicated VIP table to myself . I’m no high roller by any means, so must have done something to be on the list.
  • Stakes – A good range of table stakes from low to high.  Not the highest though but they suit my pocket.
  • Banking – Comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods.
  • Promotions – On table promotions on the dedicated tables. There is not a large range but they are pretty good when they run.
  • Customer Support – I’ve always found support to be good.

Unibet Live Casino

Unibet have two live casinos from Evolution and NetEnt. All the investment has been made at the Grande Casino, with a revamped dedicated area that sister casino Stan James also use.

Unibet are one of the preferred users of Evolution software and are often the first casino to get the newest games when they are released, so it’s always worth opening an account so you get early access to the games.

  • Software – Evolution and NetEnt branded Grande and Royale on the site. Full selection of games from both suppliers with multi-language tables on offer. 
  • Games – Full selection of games from both Evolution and Netent. 
  • Tables – The dedicated tables are at Casino Grande. The studio has been recently refurbished and the dealer has new uniforms. There are dedicated language tables in English, Flemish and Svensk for Blackjack, Roulette and Casino Hold’em. 
  • Stakes – Extensive range of betting options that will suit everyone.
  • Banking – There are a comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods.
  • Promotions – On table promotions on the dedicated tables. These run frequently and are worth having.
  • Customer Support – Online chat is available for support, which I’ve always found to be good.

Bet Victor Live Casinos

I have a soft spot for BetVictor as they were the first Live Casino I played at. They’ve undergone some changes recently and have ended up with 2 Live Casinos that each offer a different playing experience.

They’ve also just re-introduced a dedicated Blackjack table at BV Grand and I’m hoping that Roulette will be next to follow.

They are able to offer a huge selection of games with many different options and a range of stakes that should suit all levels of player. 

  • Software – A real mix with BetVictor Casino –  Extreme Live Gaming & BV Grand – Evolution. 
  • Games – They have them all! Have a look at my more detailed review of BetVictor to see which of their live casinos have the games you’re after. Start at BV Grand as they have the most games available.
  • Tables – Dedicated Blackjack at BV Grand. Otherwise, all other tables are shared.
  • Stakes – A good range of table stakes from low to high.  Not as high as William Hill but none the less impressive.
  • Banking – Comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods.
  • Promotions – Not so good these days.
  • Customer Support – Up with the best of them.

ComeOn Live Casino

Sometimes I just don’t have a rational explanation for why I keep playing at a particular casino, and Comeon is one of those.  Perhaps one of the reasons is they have games from Evolution and Extreme Live Gaming.

Perhaps it’s because they have a dedicated Blackjack table? Not sure as they only have the one.

I think it’s just because they are a good casino, they have the game I like and they pay me when I win and do it quite quickly.  They are not one of my primary go to casinos but I have a flutter there about once a month.

  • Software – A full set of games from Evolution and Extreme Live Gaming.
  • Games – They have Blackjack, Roulette, Casino Hold’em, Baccarat, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Dreamcatcher & Ultimate Texas Hold’em. With Golden Ball and side bets on Roulette at Extreme. 
  • Tables – Only the one dedicated Blackjack table at Evolution. All the rest are the generic tables from both suppliers.
  • Stakes – A good range of table stakes from low to high.  
  • Banking – Comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods.
  • Promotions – Nice promotions but aimed more at the slots player. I like the points system that you accrue when playing and being able to redeem them for goodies.
  • Customer Support – Very solid.

Grosvenor Live Casino

The Grosvenor Live Casino has just gone through a major revamp. They have made a major investment in moving their dedicated tables from Evolutions studios in Riga to the one based in Malta. They have built a new dedicated area that has 7 Blackjack Tables and one Roulette Table, with additional space to expand.

The casino is for UK based players, which is a shame as I honestly think other English speaking players would really enjoy playing there.

 

  • Software – Evolution Gaming is the software of choice here.
  • Games – Extensive set of games that include Blackjack, Roulette, Casino Holdem, Baccarat, Caribbean Stud Poker, 3 Card Poker, Dreamcatcher & Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
  • Tables – 7 Dedicated Blackjack tables and one dedicated Roulette table.
  • Stakes – A great range of table stakes that will suit both low and high rollers.  
  • Banking – Comprehensive set of deposit and withdrawals methods.
  • Promotions – Nice promotions specifically for live casino players. The host in the dedicated area controls the promotions and will actively encourage players to join so they have a chance to win.
  • Customer Support – The one area that lets Grosvenor down is the support. There is no online chat, all support is through the telephone or email.
