Energy Live Casino Review
The Live Casino at Energy Casino has games from NetEnt and Evolution. They have some unique side bets on Roulette that you’ll want to see. A classy place to play.
- Cashback on Losses
- Accepts Bitcoin
- Evolution Live Casino Software
- Limited number of live games
- No Dedicated Tables.
Energy Casino has been around since early 2013, and has had a live casino since 2014.
From then on they’ve had a number of suppliers of their live casino games. Extreme Live Gaming were the first, followed closely by Evolution live Games.
Following the sale of Extreme Live Gaming in late 2018, their games were removed and replaced in early 2019 with NetEnt live dealer games.
I’d say that now Energy Casino has a really good selection of live dealer games.
Both offer many variants of Blackjack with Side Bets, while the Evolution solution has many native language speaking dealers across their Blackjack and Roulette tables.
If you’re Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Turkish, German or Flemish you’ll be able to play the table games in your language.
NetEnt Live Casino Games
NetENt provide two Live dealers Games – Blackjack and Roulette.
All games are streamed from NetEnts studio in Malta. Whilst the dealers all speak English they come from all over Europe, so there is a real international feel in the studio.
The USP of NetEnt’s games is the broad use of chromeakey technologies to create a modern feel to the games.
NetEnt Live Blackjack
The great thing about NetEnt Blackjack is it’s played with a 6 deck shoe. They are the only supplier to offer 6 deck.
They have 2 main types of Blackjack.
- There’s 7 Seat Blackjack, with VIP and PRO options offering higher initial stakes.
- Common Draw Blackjack is a one to many game, that can cater for 100’s of players at the same time. It’s very similar in the way it play’s to Evolution’s Infinite Blackjack.
Only European Rules are offered at the tables. Blackjack Side Bets of 21+3 and Pairs can be played at all tables. This is a fairly recent addition that makes NetEnt Blackjack more player friendly.
NetEnt Live Roulette
NetEnt Roulette has long been the jewel in the crown for NetEnt Live.
There’s a variety of tables, all offering European Roulette. Some have the additional option of La Partage on a French Layout.
The new Rapid Roulette is their version of Speed Roulette, that a lot of suppliers have added over the last couple of years.
With Netent Roulette you don’t tend to get the table layout displayed. It’s normally presented as a dealer with a wheel. the rest is all computer generated imagery.

Evolution Live Casino Games
Evolution is, without a doubt, the strongest Live Casino operator in Europe. They have the widest reach and most games of any provider.
The games are all streamed from Evolution’s studios in Riga, Latvia, Malta, Romania and Georgia.
Entering the lobby you’ll see the following games on offer.
Evolution Live Blackjack
There are loads of tables with stakes ranging from 0.50 a hand on the Party Blackjack Table up to 2.5k on the Diamond VIP Table.
All games are played with 8 decks in the Vegas Style. Blackjack side bets of Bet Behind, Perfect Pairs and 21+3 can be played.
Evolution Live Baccarat
All of the different versions are available. There’s Speed Baccarat for those that like a quick game. Baccarat Squeeze for those that prefer the dealer squeezing the cards and Controlled Squeeze where you squeeze the cards. There is also the normal straight version if you don’t want the fuss of squeezing the cards.
Evolution Live Roulette
All the tables offer European Roulette. You can find La Partage on the French Roulette table and one of the Automatic tables.
There are native language tables in Greek, Turkish, Russian, Spanish, German and Flemish.
Evolution Poker Games
Evolution provides 5 live dealer poker games. All are played against the dealer and only one player hand is dealt that everyone then bets on. Winning hands are those that beat the dealer with a better poker valued hand.
Live Casino Hold’em
This the the original Live Casino poker game developed by Stephen Au Yeung. In this version two cards are dealt to both the dealer and player. 5 community cards are then dealt.
The objective is to beat the dealer with a better 5 card poker hand that’s made up from the two cards dealt to you and the 5 community cards.
There is an optional side bet of Aces or Better that can add some extra fun to the hand.
You can find more detailed review of Live Casino Hold’em here.
Live 3 Card Poker
This game that was invented in the UK and is seen in Land Based casinos all over the world.
Three cards are dealt to the dealer and player positions.
The best 3 card poker hand wins. There’s an additional side bet of pairs plus, which pays out if the player hand is a pair or better.
Evolution Caribbean Stud Poker
Similar to 3 Card poker, but 5 cards are dealt to the dealer and players position.
The dealer shows his first card to allow betting to proceed. An optional 5+1 side bet can be played
Evolution Ultimate Texas Hold’em
I first came across this game in the Encore Casino in Las Vegas. I fell in love with it straight away, so when Evolution released it I was over the moon.
You’re dealt two cards face up and have to decide to play them (by placing a 3 or 4x ante bet), check or fold. If you’ve checked you can bet when the flop is dealt, but only twice the ante. If yu check you can be 1 x when the river has been dealt.
There’s a trips side bet that pays out for 3 of a kind an above.
A cracking game, you can win big or lose your shirt lol.
Evolution Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker
Just when I thought the poker games couldn’t get any better, Evolution released Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
In this variation you can build your bet as the cards are dealt, ending up with a 4x Ante wager at the end if you chose to.
The Bonus side bet is played differently from other poker side bets. It pays out for pairs and high value connected hands that either the player or dealer has.
Another cracking game. I love it!!
Evolution Dream Catcher
This a slight departure from the traditional table game. Dream Catcher is a Wheel of Fortune, where you bet on what number the wheel will stop at.
There’s a bonus system that can multiply wins by up to 7x.
It seems this is popular with players crossing over from slots.

Energy Live Casino Summary
There are live casino games from two suppliers, NetEnt and Evolution. Both offer players something different, so it’s worth visiting both sets of tables to see what you prefer.
If I’m looking for an intimate game of Blackjack then I’ll choose the NetEnt tables. They are not too noisy and I can have a decent chat with the dealer. The stake levels suit me well and I’ve got the option to play the side bets if I’m in the mood.
I occasionally dabble with Baccarat and Roulette and use a betting system to help me eek the most out of my bankroll.
I prefer the tables at Evolution for these games, especially for Baccarat.
The banking process is simple and I get my withdraws quickly when I have some.
