It’s taken until the middle of December for us to see what the Casinos and Software providers have come up with for a Christmas Live Casino.
Playtech has launched a dedicated Christmas area containing one Roulette (both standard and French layouts available and one Unlimited Blackjack table.
The tables are located in a log cabin with a roaring (fake) log fire. The dealers are suitably dressed in Santa and Elves costumes.
It’s the second year Playtech has provided this environment for all of their licencees.
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said:
“Following its overwhelming success last year, we are delighted to again be able to offer our licensees a dedicated Live Christmas experience, this time with twice as many tables, golden chips and multi-player options.
Our Live promotional areas this year, including Halloween Fortune and Paradise Roulette, have witnessed high player demand and very positive feedback and we are planning to do many more in 2018. The Playtech Live Christmas experience is back by popular demand and really resonates with our licensees and their players and that is important when building brand identity.
“This is our way of thanking our Live customers for their ongoing and invaluable commitment and a great way to add some Christmas cheer to our new, next-generation Live offering. Merry Christmas everyone!”
Genting has a festive feel to their dedicated tables and that’s extended to the VIP Crockfords tables.
The Hippodrome uses the Betway private tables.
Unibet is dark and classy with a silver & blue Christmas tree.
Extreme Live Gaming has made an effort on some of the or tables. The two most notable being Golden Ball Roulette and the VIP Blackjack Table.
Both of these images were taken at Leo Vegas.
Decorations at Netent tables extend to a Santa Hat. Cute!
Leo Vegas has gone for the ole Christmas Jumper for all dealers. Bit of a banker and certainly a cliche in my house. A bit hot though, as the studios are not cold by any means.
The rest of the private area is decorated with trees and soft toys with information about the various Christmas promotions.
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?
