My first live casino experience!

Now I have tried to play live casino on Internet. I played both roulette and black jack, but to be honest, most of the time I just watched the game because it´s quite expensive to bet in the live casino. The minimum bet is much higher than in the ordinary online casino. The maximum bet is also much higher than in the ordinary casino, I think you could bet up to half a million euro at the VIP roulette table and up to €5000 at black jack.

I think it was most fun to watch the black jack. It was almost like in a real casino where the dealers shows their hands infront of the camera and for the players to show that they dont´t have any hidden cards. It was also fun to see how they shuffle the card decks. They had a special person who had the task to walk between the tables and shuffle the cards. But I think some live casinos use card shuffle machines.

I´ve read about a special campaign you sometimes can find in the live casinos. During the campaign they have shuffled in special cards in the deck, and if you get one of these special cards you win a cash prize! I will keep an eye open and look for those campaigns. I think I will give it a try then.

One thing that was irritating when I played in the live casino was that the live stream was chopping. Then I failed to see which cards was dealt, and that spoiled the trhilling moment. Luckily the stream worked out well most of the time so I could enjoy the game. I think you really have to have a good Internet access if you want to play live casino.

Most online casinos offer live casino to their customers, so it´s not hard to find a live casino if you are interested in trying. In the video clip below you can see a film about how it´s working.

Slot developers

Did you know that Net Entertainment, the developer of casino games, is a Swedish company? Well, it is and it has a long history of developing casino games for the online market. The jackpot slot Mega Fortune became world famous in 2013 when it payed out a gigantic jackpot worth over €15 million I think. Other well known Net Ent slots is Gonzos Quest, Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk and Hall of Gods.

Net Entertainment isn´t the only swedish game developer. Other companys I can think of is Quickspin, Play n GO and Thunderkick. Quickspin is the company behind the slots based on classic fairytales like Goldilock and the wildbears and Big Bad Wolf. I personally really enjoy their fairy tale slots, but I don´t like their other more modern video slots so much.

When Thunderkick launched their first slot I thought it was a fresh addition to the range of casino games. Their games reminds a bit of the games from quickspin and Net Entertainment, but still not. They have a modern stripped down feeling that I like. One of my favourite slots from Thunderkick is Birds on a Wire.

I like trying new slots and sometimes I look into the casino and open up games that I haven´t played earlier. Sometimes I find new favourites, like the slot Victorious from Net Ent. But most of the slots are quite uninteresting according to me.

New slots are also released quite regularly, so it´s hard to find time to try both the new ones and the older slots. My priority is to try the new games, especially when they are released with a campaign I find interesting. The best campaigns is when you get free spins on the new game, then you can try it for free and still win money if you are lucky. Some casinos use to launch new slots with a casino tournament, normally I am not fond of that because it use to only premiere the players that plays the most. But there are exceptions so it´s always a good idea to read the terms and conditions for the tournament before you dismiss it.
