Unibet has gone live with it’s version of Netents Live Beyond Live, Unibet Virtual Studio. There’s three dedicated Unibet Live Blackjack and Live Roulette tables in this new playing interface.

Unibet Virtual Studio goes Live

Unibet has gone live with a version of NetEnts Live beyond Live, which Unibet is calling Virtual Studio Blackjack and Roulette.

I guess the reason Live beyond Live isn’t being used to describe the games is due to the 12 month exclusive content deal Netent signed with Mr Green during the initial development phase.

Virtual Studio uses the same technology as Live Beyond Live, but doesn’t have some of the lobby display options we’ve become accustomed to at Mr Green.

I’ve spent a few minutes looking around the Virtual Studio and give my initial thoughts in this video.

My review below is a bit more considered after I checked out the Mobile version :-).

Desktop and Mobile

Unibet Virtual Studio can be played on Desktop and mobile devices, but for this review I’ve stuck mainly with the desktop version.

Quite frankly this is because it’s how I play all Live Casino games. I haven’t ignored Mobile as you’ll see with the differences as I point them out.

Firstly I should point out that the playing interface hasn’t been developed for the desktop first. It’s a Mobile First product.

What that means is the development was done for mobile and then changes were made to get it working on a desktop.

That’s the only reason to explain why some of the functionality on the desktop is a bit clunky and pants (a bit rubbish).

Playing on the desktop is ok though, but it isn’t as good as Mobile as you’ll see as we go through the review.

What is Unibet Virtual Studio?

Unibet Virtual Studio is a vanilla version of Live Beyond Live.

The unique and protected Mr Green content has been removed to leave a basic lobby and direct access to three dedicated Unibet live casino tables. Live Roulette and two Live Blackjack Tables.

The existing Netent live casino games and tables are still available. They can be accessed through two rather shitty menus on the desktop version.

I’ll explain both as we move through the review.

Alternatively you can access the Original Netent playing interface from the general Unibet Live Casino menu.

Let’s start with a review of Virtual Studio Live Roulette

Sound isn’t automatically on; selecting an option on the interface wakes it up, which is a bit irritating.

The roulette table and interface is different from the standard playing interface.

The table is displayed face on, with the dealer and wheel in view.

Behind the dealer is an overhead view of the wheel, but it’s partly obscured by the dealers arm, so it’s pretty useless for watching the ball track in the wheel and seeing how it lands.

There is no Racetrack or opportunity to bet on Neighbours.

There are however three configured French bets with each showing what a total bet would be for the chip size you’re playing.

Statistics are available, but you can’t place bets using the interface. There is the ability to save and recall your favourite bets.

In the top left of the screen there is a menu that displays Promotions, Game History, Pay Tables etc and also a rather poor attempt at a lobby for accessing the generic tables.

On mobile this displays across the width of the screen , on desktop it’s squeezed out of the way and quite frankly horrid.

Virtual Studio Blackjack

The virtual blackjack tables can be accessed by clicking on the table or dealer.

You first get some info about the table, free seats and stake information. Hitting the join table loads up the game.

Each are seven seat tables, with the game being dealt from a manual dealing shoe, playing to European Rules.

The playing interface is nice and clean and comes with options to control sound and video.

The lobby menu is on the top right hand side of the screen. This displays a bit better than in the Roulette menu, but it’s still a horrible experience on desktop.


I’ve sort of trashed Unibet Virtual Studio a bit. But that’s mainly because of the way the interface has been developed for the desktop.

The concept is great and I like the way the lobby display the tables. It works well with a limited number, I don’t think it would work so well with 10 – 20 tables.

I do think Netent has missed an opportunity to improve some of the options in the playing interface.

Live casino players are now used to betting on statistics and having neighbour bets. Unfortunately both are missing at the Netent Roulette tables. Hopefully this will improve.

The real benefit is Netent now has a way of providing Casinos with dedicated tables and I would expect to see more live casinos taking up the option.

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 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?
