Live Casino Steaming Studios
Live dealer games are booming the last few years. The quality of the live streaming and the technology behind live casinos has evolved a lot in the last decade. In the past there were just a handfull of live casino software companies with relatively small studios in a couple of countries.
Today things are totally different. There are many live casino software providers, big studios where the live dealer games are streamed from in many different countries and high tech technology.
So you could be playing Live Roulette in the UK and the live dealer on your screen might be in Latvia or even Costa Rica! A lot of players are not aware of this and they only realise if another player asks the live dealer where they from or where is the live dealer studio.
Casino Games Live Streaming
There are three different types of live casino streaming today:
- Live Casino Streaming Studios where games are streamed from a custom build studio
- Streaming from Land Based Casinos where there is a dedicated table and live dealer
- Dual Play Streaming from Land Based Casinos where online players can join a land based roulette table
In the past we used to have mainly live dealer streaming studios and just a handfull of land based streaming tables.The land based tables were operating privately for live streaming on specific hours of the day.
Today things are different and despite the fact that studios are still the main place where games are streamed live from there are also plenty of the other types as well.
Locations of Live Dealer Streaming Studios
Most UK live casinos are using one or more of the biggest live casino softare providers like Evolution, Playtech, NetEnt and Pragmatic Play. However, there are a few more smaller live casino software providers with studios all over the world.
Here is an up to date list of live dealer studio locations for some of the biggest software providers by continent:
- Riga in Latvia (Evolution, NetEnt, Ezugi and Playtech studios)
- San Jose in Costa Rica (Ezugi and Visionary Gaming)
- Malta ( NetEnt)
- Manilla in Philippines (Playtech Asia)
- Toronto in Canada (Microgaming)
- Tallin in Esthonia (Amaya/HoGaming)
There are more locations where live dealer games are streamed from like the Isle of Man but these are smaller studios that are currently used just by a few UK Casinos operators.
A few of these smallest live dealer streaming studios or land based casinos where games are streamed from have their own native live dealers. But we can also find dedicated language tables with native speaking croupiers in the big studios in Latvia and Malta.
Live Dealer Studios in the UK
Since the departure of NetPlay TV ( Jackpot247 and supercasino.com) it is very rare to find live delaer streaming studios based in the UK. What we have instead are roulette tables on land based casinos that are streamed live from the casino floor, mainly Dual Play Roulette tables.
These roulette tables are provided by Evolution and are streamed in real time from land based casinos like:
- Grosvenor’s Victoria Casino, London
- Hippodrome Casino, London
- Palm Beach Casino (Mayfair), London
- Genting Resorts World Birmingham
- Genting Casino Manchester
- Les Ambassadeurs Club, London
The only exception is the Mayfay Salle Privee which is a live streaming studio that is build in Les Ambassadeurs Club in London.
Authentic Gaming has also launched their first roulette table that is streamed directly from a Aspers Casino in London in 2019.
Riga: The most popular live casino streaming city
Apart from being a popular destinations for a crazy stag and hen do, Riga in Latvia is the city with the most live dealer streaming action.
Evolution has one of the largest live dealer studios based there while the Online Gaming giant Playtech has also opened the words largest live casino studio in 2017.
This live casino studio is located in Riga Old Town and is 8,500 square meters which is massive compared to the next biggest studio to date.
