Going almost un-noticed, Evolution Gaming has implemented a number of speed enhancements to a few of their live games.
The changes are small, but given that we all like a quick game, very welcome as it speeds up player decision making and general play.
This was initially rolled out at Leo Vegas.
It’s a facility more familiar to slots players where you’re able to select how many spins you want the game to make for you.
You select the numbers you want to bet on, how much and the number of rounds you want to bet on and away you go.
Your bet is automatically placed until the number of rounds or your expires.
There’s also a new Tutorial that pops up when you first visit the wheel.
It’s aimed at new players and shows an animation of how to play.
Early decision has been around for a while, but there there are a couple of enhancements that will shave off a few more seconds during game play.
Casino Hold’em now has the Pre-Decision facility active just after the player’s first two cards has been dealt.
Previously you had to wait until the two player cards and community cards were been dealt before being able to act.
This should help speed the game up, but given the amount of people that play Casino Hold’em, expecting them all to make their decisions before the betting time concludes in a big ask.
Still it’s better than not having it.
It’s something that you’re not likely to see unless you happen to be playing on a roulette table during the middle of the night or early in the morning.
It’s a facility that allows one or two players at the table to tell the dealer to spin the wheel, without having to wait for the betting time window to complete.
It will undoubtedly speed up the game during those quiet times.
It’s available on all generic and dedicated roulette tables, depending on whether the casino has requested it to be added.
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?
