Leo Vegas have gone live with Extreme Live Gamings live casino which complements the live games already provided by Evolution Gaming.
This gives players at Leo Vegas a real choice of where to play their live games, and whilst Evolution Gaming are known to be the leading supplier of live games in Europe, the games from Extreme Live Gaming offer players something different, both with game options and the playing experience.
What sets the new games apart, especially with Blackjack and Baccarat is the proximity of the dealer and the table to you, the player.
You’re not viewing the table from far away and they have developed technology called “Xmode” that allows you to view the table from the playing position you’re at, and at table level.
It’s not quite the same as playing at a land based table, but it gives a different perspective. To be honest it does take a bit of getting used to .
Roulette has been sexed up. You may be thinking how the hell they have done that, Roulette is Roulette.
What’s clever here is giving players something else to do alongside the main game. So you’ll find 3 themed tables where there is an extra side bet in operation.
Taken from three popular Novomatic Slots the reel symbols have been added to a spinning slot reel in the playing interface. You place a bet on which one will land when the reel is spun. The tables are called Ra Roulette, ladys Luck Roulette and Dolphin’s Roulette.
In addition there is Golden Ball Roulette, whereby a facility has been added to allow a lucky player to choose when to release the ball on one spin every 30 minutes. The player chosen is the one that has placed the most bets during the preceding 30 minutes. It’s a bit of fun and something different.
LeoVegas have made the wise decision to take all three blackjack side bets, bet behind, Perfect Pairs and 21+3. It’s costs them a little more to do this but in terms of player satisfaction it’s right up there as a winner.
It’s a shame Betvictor didn’t do the same.
Well done Leo Vegas, it’s certainly somewhere that will see my custom a bit more.
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?
