Ezugi is following an industry trend by developing two new live games that are streamed from Land Based Casinos.
The new Live Games from Ezugi are:
OTT stands for Over The Table.
As of June 2017, OTT baccarat hasn’t been released. Ezugi is in the final stages of preparing the game and integration method.
As far as I know, this will be the first land-based live streamed Baccarat table that is operational from any of the live casino providers.
Another provider did show me their Dual Play Baccarat when I was at the International Casino Exhibition in London. I guess it’s a case of who launches first will get the bragging rights.
There will be three tables used at the Queenco Casino.
I’ve been able to get a few pictures of the table from the live stream that they’ll be using and it all looks pretty good to me.
The tables in the casino have 10 playing positions and the game comes with the Pairs side bet.
I would imagine that some more changes are needed to this table, like a card scanner and integration for the roadmaps to be displayed, but they can’t be too far from launching.
Sagi Ifrach, Business Development Director of Ezugi summed up what OTT Baccarat means to Ezugi:
“Ezugi has created a way to turn any land-based Barracat table into an online offering with a simple implementation onsite driving instant traffic upon launch.
Ezugi’s OTT product is a natural expansion of the Ezugi Network strategy where we aim to become the biggest pool of table games by connecting land-based casinos around the world under one shared game lobby.
Joining our regulated network by adding simple equipment on top of tables instantly generates money to the land-based Baccarat hosts.
Land-based casinos are a central part of the Ezugi strategy, and OTT is an important step to strengthen our offering.”
OTT Roulette is a bit more advanced and is already available.
It’s being streamed from the Portomaso Casino in Malta, who also provide live streamed tables to other suppliers. A popular place!
There are two tables being streamed on a 24 x 7 basis. You’ll be able to play on your PC or mobile device and you’ll be playing alongside real players in the casino.
Here’s a couple of videos showing the stream on a desktop and mobile device.
Equally important is the ease of integration for the online casinos and being able to offer players an easy way to find the game they want to play.
Ezugi seems to be working in the right areas.
To be honest I haven’t been a fan of land based streaming in the past. But the technology has moved on tremendously and has made a huge difference to the quality of the product.
I’m looking forward to trying out the new tables at Ezugi.
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?
