On Air Entertainment is a new live casino solution provider affiliated with Microgaming. Launched in December 2020 and is headed by a team with a combined experience of over 100 years of building and running live casino solutions.
The CEO is Andres Rengifo, who originally trained as a croupier before heading up the live casino operation at William Hill.
Andres moved on to run Evolution’s Malta Live casino studios before taking the role of Head of Live Casino at NetEnt.
The role at Netent Live eventually ended in 2020, following its purchase and subsequent closure by Evolution.
On Air Entertainment is headquartered in Malta, where its sales and product teams are located. Additional offices are in Poland and Estonia, where the Dev Ops and HR teams reside.
A new modern live casino studio has been built in Riga, Latvia. As of October 2021, the headcount stands at 50+, intending to have 600+ in 2022, following the initial three games launch.
According to the On Air Website and an interview with Andres, it’s clear that On Air Entertainment is here to disrupt the live casino market.
Like every new operator, they aim to provide their customers with a first-class selection of games. A simplified commercial proposition offers no minimum, click, or side bet fees.
On Air launched two games initially.
A closer look at what On Air is doing reveals preparation for the Greek market. A recruitment drive for Russian speaking dealers was underway, with the first game Russian Roulette released in February 2022.
Hindi Speaking dealers have been recruited for the localised Hindi Blackjack and Roulette tables.
The “On Air Entertainment” Live Casino games are available at Microgaming casinos through the Microgaming integration platform.
It will be very much plug and play for the casinos that take the games.
Live Blackjack launched on the 24th November 2012 from the studio in Riga, Latvia.

OnAir launched Card Matchup, on the 11th of November 2022, just in time for the Fifa World Cup.
It is a card game where you must guess whether the Home or Away card will have the biggest number.

Launched in January 2023, Blazing Dragon Tiger is On-Air’s take on the popular Asian card game Dragon Tiger.
The game is played with eight decks of shuffled cards. The dealer gives the Dragon and Tiger playing positions one card each. The high card wins.
Players can bet on the Dragon or Tiger or bet for a Tie. There are side bets for each position, where you gamble on whether the card will be Odd/Even or Red/Black.
All bets pay 1:1, except the Tie, which has a payout of 11:1 or a suited Tie at 50:1.
The RTP for the central hands is 96.27%.
