Live Casino Comparer Comment

Well I didn’t see this one coming, but I’m not surprised as Authentic is a good asset to have in your company. It will be interesting to see if Authentic Tables start appearing in Genting Land based casinos, when there is already a number of live tables being supplied by Evolution Gaming.

The jewel in the crown is to get a live streamed table from the strip in Las Vegas, and I’m excited to think that this could become a real possibility with the new Resorts World Casino in Las Vegas currently under construction. Lets hope any licensing difficulties can be over come.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

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 used to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make logical sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino. Did I have a good time?, are the dealers nice and chatty?, is everything easy to understand?. Does it have a good set of games, is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use, does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and 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 & 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?, 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?
