Full Live Casino Review
 
 

NoUnfortunately players from United States are NOT accepted.

Royal Panda first added their Live Casino in late 2014.

At that time they were part of a bunch of casinos that could see the advantage of having a live casino for their players.

Shortly after, they approached me asking if I would review their site and perhaps list it on LiveCasinoComparer. I told them I already had loads of Evolution Casinos on my site and as they offered nothing different from the basic generic solution it was unlikely to appeal to my visitors.

So why the change?

During the mid part of 2016, Royal Panda invested in their own dedicated tables at the Evolution Gaming studios in Riga. They went live with three Blackjack tables and one Roulette table.

These are in addition to the generic tables for Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Casino Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Dreamcatcher & Ultimate Texas Hold’em that Evolution also supplies.

I’d also been seeing on the forums that they were building a good reputation among slot players, so it was an easy decision for me to go back and review them.

Royal Panda Live Casino Games

As I’ve already mentioned Royal Panda have an Evolution live casino, so that’s one tick in the box and they also have their own dedicated tables, which is another tick in the box. 

Blackjack – A huge array of tables are available, from low stakes to the high roller Grand VIP Table. All games are 7 seat and are played with 8 decks from a manual shoe. 21+3, Perfect Pairs and Bet Behind side bets are available on all tables.  The dedicated Royal Panda tables are split for low and high rollers and are in their own studio area.

Baccarat – This is the standard offering from Evolution with Baccarat in three versions, with or without the Squeeze and now with the new Controlled Baccarat Squeeze.

Roulette – Standard European Roulette, with Immersive and multi-language tables for Dutch, Swedish, German and British players. If you like quicker games then Auto Roulette is a good option. The dedicated table offers higher max bets so I’d be tempted to play here more. Rather disappointing there are no French Tables with La Partage.

Casino Hold’em – A one deck game where one player hand is dealt that everyone plays. The Aces or Better side bet makes the hands more interesting.

Three Card Poker – One of my favourite games. Played with one deck and one player hand with 2 side bet options of Pairs Plus and 6 Card Bonus.

Caribbean Stud Poker – A one deck game where you have to beat the dealer with a better 5 card poker hand. The 5+1 Bonus bet gives added options for making a hand and pays out greater odds than a winning Ante bet.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em – Also fast becoming one of my favourite table games. The ability to bet after each card is dealt is fairly unique and being a poker derived game where you play against the dealer really appeals to me. I can see this game becoming more popular. Although more volatile than Blackjack, you can win some big amounts for hitting the right hand, just make sure you are playing the Trips side bet.

DreamCatcher – This is a Wheel of Fortune where you bet on one of 6 numbers on a 54 segment wheel. There’s a multiple of 2x or 7x that can be applied to wins when it’s active.  

All the games can be played on mobile devices and the interface is great for phones and tablets alike.

Playability

As you’d expect from Evolution Live games you get a very slick and professional playing experience. The table layouts are great and there are loads of options to tweak video and sound settings.

The interfaces all stream in HD and will auto adjust the quality of the feed dependent on your connection speed.

The games are easy to find from the Live Lobby, although the recent changes by Evolution had made it slightly more difficult to see all the available tables in one go. However, this is really just splitting hairs as I never have any real trouble finding what I want.

If you like playing more that one table at a time there is a multi-table option that allows you to display up to 4 tables on your screen. 

Personally, if a casino has a dedicated area I will play there. It’s normally easier to get a seat at the Blackjack tables, you get a more personalised experience and you’re able to chat to other players, which you can’t do on the general play tables (you’re restricted to just chatting with the dealer).

Customer Support

Customer support is open daily from 09:00 – 00:30 (GMT + 1) and they can be contacted by Chat, Email and Telephone.

I’ve found the team to be responsive to my requests, but they’ve been simple things like queries on Bonuses and the like.

Bonuses and Loyalty

New players get a welcome bonus of 100% up to $100. This comes with a wagering requirement of 35x the deposit. Live Casino games count 10% towards the wagering, which is fairly standard across all live casinos.

Royal Panda also has a loyalty program where you get rewarded for your game play. Points are accumulated based on the value of the bets you place which can then be redeemed for cash or other gifts. The more points you have the greater choice of gifts you have.

Licensing

Royal Panda holds gaming licenses from Malta and the UK Gambling Commission.

Summary

It’s difficult to fault the Royal Panda Live Casino. They have dedicated and generic tables and that puts them in the elite of casinos that have live games.

On table promotions are provided frequently in the private area, so you do get rewarded when playing on those tables.

They have a good reputation among the player community and are easy to deal with if you have any queries or issues.
