Press Release : Malta: 18th July, 2017
Innovative live casino provider Authentic Gaming has lined up two weeks of glitzy cabaret performances that will be live-streamed in high definition to its online casino operator partners. Yet another ‘first’ for the online gaming industry!
Performances will be live-streamed every night from Monday 21st August to Sunday 3rd September from the gaming floor of the Casino International, operated by Casino Austria International and located within the Hilton Hotel in Batumi, Georgia.
The performances take place at 21:30CET and 23:00CET, with headline acts every Thursday night including The IT Girls from London and the Paris Cabaret Group, who will take to the stage on 24th August and 31st August respectively.
Authentic Live Entertainment! allows players to watch shows, performances and celebrity appearances while they continue playing live roulette on their desktop computers and mobile devices, bringing the gaming experience to life, without any compromise of the game.
Contrary to the at times isolated experience of playing online, LIVE! Entertainment will be a very social experience, as you can play at the same time with your friends and share the experience together from different locations, while experiencing the same excitement as the patrons in the real casino.
Jonas Delin, managing director of Authentic Gaming, said:
“We have put together an incredible line-up of cabaret performances over a two-week period that will transport online players to the heart of the gaming floor.
The best thing, of course, is that while the shows are taking place they can continue to play their favourite live roulette games. It takes the player experience to the next level, while allowing land-based operators to showcase their entertainment offerings.”
The supplier’s flagship Authentic Roulette product streams live from tables located on the floors of real casinos the world over; it means the tables are real, the croupiers are real, the cards and chips are real and, most importantly, the other players are real.
The footage is captured via discreet HD cameras located above the wheel and around the table and is streamed to Authentic’s network of B2B online casino clients, which include the Kindred Group, LeoVegas, Unibet and MariaCasino.com

This has been on the cards for a while, as the functionality to do this was launched earlier in the year.
I spoke to Jonas at the ICE Conference in February 2017 and he was excited about this and a number of other unique products they had in the pipeline.
It certainly takes the Live experience to a new level.
Will it suit everyone?, probably not, but there is definitely a niche for it.
I’ll certainly be tuning in to see what it’s all about.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
