It’s an amazing feat and something most never thought possible – land-based casino tables such as roulette and baccarat are now available for bets online.
Members can log onto their online casino and head over to a ‘live casino’ section where Ultra-HD webcam technology streams the table game back to player’s screen. This gives the player an authentic casino gaming experience where real cards, real roulette wheels, and real dice are in action all managed by a host known as a croupier or dealer.
Rather than relying on an RNG (Random Number Generator) algorithm to generate computer code to produce the results of each betting round, the players are getting real-life 100% natural results via these live dealer and croupiers. The popularity of live dealer table games is huge as reported on the Playcasino live casino page.
Land-Based Casino Tables Available For Online Bets Takes Live Casinos To a New Level
One of the top brands leading the way in the live casino industry is Evolution – formerly known as Evolution Gaming. The live casino developer has taken the concept of webcam streamed live table gaming one step further.
In partnership with multiple European casinos, the Evolution live casino platform now brings ‘Roulette’ and ‘Baccarat’ table games directly on the casino floors of 4 world-renowned European land-based casinos to players mobile and desktop devices.
The technology behind this ingenious new concept is the same tech used in the live dealer studios used to bring live table games to player’s screens but instead, the Webcam is rigged up inside a casino.

Live Casino Game Tech Fulfil Multiple Needs For Players
Some players do not trust computer-generated results to mimic the same randomness as a live dealer or croupier can produce. For other players, they just want an authentic casino table game experience with all the hustle and bustle you would normally find in a land-based casino.
With live dealers, players get as close to the live-action as they possibly could without setting foot inside a casino. They can either play on tables hosted in a live dealer studio especially set up for online table game iGaming or choose Dual-Play tables inside one of the land-based casinos that are in partnership with Evolution.
Even those that are sceptical about live dealer studios now have an option to play on live casino tables in land-based casinos.
Intelligent Betting Software & Live Table Game Tech
One of the most remarkable sides to this industry is the way the betting software functions. The software design is so sophisticated that it allows players to place their virtual chips directly on the felts, while players also get the opportunity to bring up a virtual betting board for games such as roulette – the main point is that the choice is left in the hands of the player.
The main reason for having the ability to place chips on the felts is important to the player is the authenticity of the entire live table game betting experience.
On top of this, players get to choose from multiple cameras and/or views of the game they are playing. This is especially important for games like roulette where players all have their preferred way of viewing the wheel, croupier, betting board, and table.
A Growing Industry with Healthy Competition
The live casino online industry is now so popular that there are over 20 live dealer brands offering casinos numerous table games to place real money or cryptocurrency bets.
Evolution is one of the top brands in the business which also own Ezugi, while other big casino platform providers such as Pragmatic Play Live, Playtech, Microgaming, Asia Gaming, Vivo Gaming, and dozens of more brands are revolutionising the way casino players play traditional casino table games.
With the concept of live gaming not too different between brands i.e. there is a webcam, betting software, and a live dealer or croupier dealing the cards, Evolution was the first live dealer gaming platform to bring live casino tables into the fold.
