Introduction to Extreme Live Gaming

I first bumped into Extreme Live Gaming at the 2015 International trade fair ICE in London. I was visiting for the day to meet as many Live Casino suppliers I could.

I’d not come across them before as they were a relatively new Live casino operator, having been formed a couple of years before in 2013 by Darwyn Palenzuela.

He has a long pedigree in developing live casino solutions, among his portfolio is Smart Live Gaming, Evolution Gaming and Ho Gaming.

Extreme had recently purchased by the Novomatic Group and this was their introduction to the industry.

First targeting the Asian market, Extreme Live Gaming moved to London in January 2015 and set up a studio based in West London.

It’s from there that the games are developed and streamed to players on a 24×7 basis.

The facility is only partially filled and there is a whole floor waiting for the expected expansion over the next few years.

Extreme Live Gamings focus is very much on player engagement and Darwyn has been keen to innovate and offer players something different, which is their USP.

I visited the studios in early July 2015, and they already had a few online casinos live.

There was a stream of very attractive dealers wandering around the offices as a training program was in progress as they were bolstering the team so they could comfortably handle the 24 x 7 operation needed these days.

Table wise there were up to 7 tables for Blackjack and Baccarat, 2 Auto Roulette wheels and 2 Roulette tables with plenty of room to expand.

General Summary

They offer three games.

Live Blackjack.
Live Baccarat.
Live Roulette with a Multi Table option.

There are a number of things that make the Extreme Live Gaming solution different from its competitors:

  • Firstly, they have integrated side bets into the live roulette, and have created them using well known Novomatic slots, Dolphin’s, Book of Ra, Lucky lady’s Charm & Sizzling Hot. You can bet on a symbol and if it comes in you win!. 
  • Secondly, they have developed a feature called Golden Ball on roulette. This provides a lucky player with the opportunity to control when the ball is introduced onto the roulette wheel. A league table is run for 20 spins and the player that tops the table with the largest amount of bets at the end of the 20 spins wins the chance to spin the ball. It’s a bit of fun but increases player engagement.

Software Interface

Most live casino playing interfaces initially look very busy. What I like about Extreme’s is you can switch off the display options and you’re left with a view of just you and the dealer.

You can then pick and choose the information you’d like displayed on the screen. All the interfaces come with the ability to control sound, cameras (on / off), video streaming quality with full help text on the game you’re playing.

All the interfaces come with the ability to control sound, cameras (on / off), video streaming quality with full help text on the game you’re playing.

You’ll also find options to change the screen language and display your player history.

Another nice little quirk for the techies among us is that the streaming information of the Frame Per Second is displayed in tiny digits on the screen. It’s helpful that you can see what quality you are getting.

There is no download needed to play and there is currently no mobile option.

General playing observations

You get a very personal playing experience with Extreme Live Gaming.

The dealers are very chatty and clearly, they have been briefed that it’s all about the player experience. 

I did find it difficult to make out some of the cards when playing Blackjack, but the computer generated images display the numbers very quickly so it’s not really an issue.

They hold a UK Gaming commission licence which is great news for UK based players.

So if you’re a casino looking for a European-based provider that can take UK players then Extreme is certainly worth looking at.

Especially as they have some unique features and also offer a full range of side bets on blackjack.
