Back in 2010 bet365 celebrated the launch of their ‘dual network live dealers’. In doing so, they became the first operator to offer players access to Playtech’s Asian and Euro live studio games via the single casino account login.
More tables, more dealers, more game variations, not to mention the novelty of swapping between games being dealt live in Latvia and Manila at the click of a mouse.
A lot has changed since then. For a start, both the Riga and Manila studios have been completely redesigned. Then there’s the game skins which have improved significantly and video streams which have gone HD and get clearer and clearer by the month. Check out the Playtech then and now video’s for examples of these changes.
And as for the dealers, (maybe it’s just me) but they seem to get cuter by the month also. About the only thing that hasn’t changed is that damned house edge across all games!
There’s another notable change…bet365 no longer stands alone as a dual network live dealers provider. The list is starting starting to grow.
A couple of weeks ago on opening up Betfred’s live casino lobby I was surprised to see a bunch of tables from the Asian studio presented for play (the purple ones below).
You’ll find a similar lobby at Dafabet (the new Aston Villa shirt sponsors) and Genting.
No doubt there are other Playtech powered casinos that are considering (or have already launched) dual Asia/Euro live dealer games. If you come across any more please let us know!
