It’s been a while since Stakelogic launched its live casino, and it’s only now I can do a full review of their live casino games.
They have come a long way in a short time, which is a significant achievement for Anthony Summat’s team. No doubt, most of the technicians have years of experience across the major live casino developers. NetEnt’s demise is Stakelogics gain.
At the time of writing this, Stakelogic has two live casino games, Blackjack and Roulette.
They are live across Europe and, more importantly for me, in the UK, having just gained their UK License.
They have also released three Gameshows, a game based on Roulette called Super Stake Roulette, a live slot game called Runner8Runner and Super Wild Hold And Spin Live Slot – more on them later.
I look at the live games from Stake Logic, including Super Stake Roulette, Runner8Runner and Super Wild Hold and Spin.
Stakelogic Live Casino launched because well-known slots developer Stakelogic spotted a gap in the live casino market they intend to exploit.
In June 2021, they announced the launch of their new Live casino product – Stakelogic Live- and a new website and the building of a new studio in Malta.
The press release stated that Stakelogic would go live with various game titles, including blackjack, roulette, and live casino game shows.
The new studio is located in Birkirkara, Malta and has Twenty-Two tables.
The development team are in Kiev and Belgrade, and Stakelogic aims to push the boundaries of live casino, coming up with a range of new live dealer features and innovations.
Stephan van den Oetelaar, CEO of Stakelogic, commented:
“For Stakelogic it is a logical step forward to move into the live casino market segment. Many of our tier-1 clients repeatedly asked us to complement our service offering with live casino products. Therefore, Stakelogic will hit the ground running, as many of our clients have already committed to go with Stakelogic Live. We are very happy with the new team of Stakelogic Live and the energy this new business venture brings to our company.”
Anthony Sammut, Head of Live Casino at Stakelogic Live, said:
“Stakelogic has built an incredible reputation for designing and developing some of the most popular slot games in recent years and now we plan to do the same in the live casino sector.”
We have taken our pioneering and progressive approach to slot development and applied it to live casino to create games of distinction that will allow our operator partners to offer their players a superior experience across all of our live titles.
Of course, this has only been possible due to the incredible team that we have built to operate Stakelogic Live. They have already done a great job with the games we have for launch and I for one can’t wait to see the next live dealer titles that will roll off the production line.”
Regarding the Stakelogic live timeline, here are the significant milestones since October 2021.
Let’s take a close look at the live games from Stakelogic.
There are three, Blackjack, Roulette and the Gameshows Super Stake Roulette and Runner8Runner.
Roulette is the single zero European version.
There are two main Live Dealer roulette wheels and four Auto Roulette options.
The playing interface offers
Super Stake roulette is a game of roulette that offers Multipliers on straight-up number bets and the chance to spin the Money Wheel to win up to 5000x.
There are two ways to play the game.
In its simple form, up to 5 multipliers (known as Sliver numbers) get randomly assigned to straight-up numbers between 50x – 750x. You’ll win if the ball lands on a number you’ve bet on, hopefully containing a multiplier.
The second way is to switch on the Super Stake feature, which costs you 50% of your initial bet but gives you up to 5 additional multipliers (gold numbers) with the chance to win a spin of the Money Wheel.
The Money Wheel contains 54 segments with multiplier prizes ranging from 50x to 5000x.
The game uses the same playing interface as regular roulette.
There is no option to change the bet types to make straight-up bets.
Only straight-up bets qualify for the multipliers.
A regular straight-up win pays 29:1 rather than 35:1.
All other roulette bets pay the standard payouts.
Runner8Runner is a live Slot Game based on the Runner 6 Runner Slot.
In this version, there are 10 Reels, but you don’t have to play them all. The minimum is three reels, and you can add additional reels, which adds more pay lines, up to a maximum of 40.
The Super Stake Function adds 50% to your bet and will qualify you for the Super Spin Money Wheel if three diamonds land on the pay line of the slot.
The money wheel has 54 segments, containing multipliers between 40x to 800x. Multipliers on the wheel can boost the final payout up to 8000x!
This live gameshow is only available for Dutch players, but I’m sure we’ll see it launched elsewhere.
The RTP is 95.04%, and you’ll get 95.13% in Super Stake mode.
Super Wild Hold and Spin is a live Slot Game with five reels and 33 pay lines.
This live slot has two bonus rounds. The first is triggered when three diamonds appear across the reels.
A large money wheel containing multipliers between 50x to 500x, further boosted through wheel multipliers of 2x and 3x, is spun by the presenter. The maximum win is 5000x.
The second Bonus Round, “Spin and Hold”, triggers when five silver or gold coins fill the third reel. When this occurs, the middle reel is locked, and the other reels spin as the symbols get replaced by coins. There are four spins, which reset when coins drop. When all spins are complete, the bonus round ends, and the total on the coins is totalled to give the final payout multiplier.
To qualify for the money wheel, you must play the super stake option, which increases your initial bet by 50%. You do not qualify for the bonus round if you don’t play the super stake options.
This live gameshow is currently only available for Dutch players.
The RTP is 95.00%, and you’ll get 95.13% in Super Stake mode.
The best Stakelogic casino in my book is Unibet, for two reasons.
They have dedicated Stakelogic tables for Blackjack and Roulette.
Secondly, the games are available in the UK and across Europe.
