So I’ve noticed over the past few days that not all Live Casinos have joined in with the Christmas spirit.
I know it’s still relatively early in December, but I would have hoped that more would have made the effort.
A quick run round of the casinos revealed the following Xmas live dealer decorated studios.
Looking very festive in his Santa’s hat, but little else in the way of decorations.
Leo Vegas have made a better effort, with presents and decorated Christmas trees dotted around the Chambre Separee studio. Not so sure about the head wear though. I think those are antlers?.
No funny costumes yet, but the tables have snow and pine cones, with festive snowflakes hung from the ceiling.
A poorer effort at the Macau tables, a lone Christmas tree and a few pine cones.
Slightly better at the Vegas tables. Although the snow obscures the players names and bet behind positions. It will be interesting to see how long that lasts for.
The Hippodrome dedicated area courtesy of Betway is the best of the lot.
A really festive feel to the dedicated area at Marathonbet. The Manchester United colours really add to the Christmas theme. The dealers don’t look too happy.
Perhaps they’ve been told to wear Antlers!
The dealers at Ezugi have made a similar effort to Unibet, with just the obligatory Santa Hat .
That reminds me, my local Fish and Chip shop is offering 50% off if you make your order wearing a Santa’s Outfit.
Guess what I’m eating tonight :-)
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?
