Let's Talk About Live Casino

Those yearning for a more retro experience can choose from an abundance of classic slots that mimic their land-based counterparts, while fans of Bingo or Scratch Cards are equally catered for.
But there’s one genre in particular that has taken the industry by storm over the past few years.
The Dawn of Live Casino
Live Casino’s origins can be traced back to the mid 90s. Arriving amid a wave of excitement, the games set off a revolution that is still very much alive and kicking today.
For the first time, gamblers were able to place wagers on their favourite table games from the comfort of home as Live Casino specialists began to take advantage of advances in technology. Improved internet connectivity can be counted as the other major catalyst driving Live Casino’s rapid ascent.
The rise of Live Casino would go on to spawn a host of nascent developers occupying a whole category of their own, keen to cash in on this newfound craze.
While these games stopped short of capturing the full brick-and-mortar casino experience, they heralded the dawning of an exciting new era. Punters were now free to place bets at a dealer-operated casino table in real-time - from just about anywhere housing a stable enough internet connection.
The first titles were certainly a little rough round the edges, lacking the polish of today’s releases, but the main modus operandi from the outset has remained largely unchanged.
Blackjack, Roulette, Poker - you name it. If it’s available to play in your average casino, you’ll find it right here at Caxino Live Casino. All these games are typically streamed live from a replicated casino environment, hosted by live dealers.
The game’s digital interfaces allow you to place a range of bets, just like you would do in a real-life setting, before the roulette wheel is spun, or blackjack cards dealt - revealing your fate. Any winnings are then credited instantly to your account, akin to a dealer sliding chips across the felt.
Benefits of Live Casino
Modern-day offerings even allow you to converse with your dealer and tip them if they happen to deal you a winner - for an added touch of authenticity. And the intrinsic benefits to Live Casino don’t end there.
No longer is it necessary to shower and dress into your ‘Sunday Best’ if you ever fancy a flutter at the tables. Neither must you arrive between certain opening hours, as games are offered around the clock at Caxino - wherever you are.
The proliferation of Live Casino games also takes long commutes out of the equation, and in addition, you’re highly unlikely to find overbearing waiters or intimidating security patrolling your own front room!
The Present Day
Improvements in casino technology have coincided with a thirst for more sophisticated gameplay.
Nowadays, the typical 21-year-old dipping their toes in the online casino world for the first time is not nearly satisfied by single payline slots featuring bells, cherries, BARs and 7s that adorned games from yesteryear. Fortunately, stepping up to the plate are the likes of Evolution, leading the charge for the new breed of solutions provider.
The Malta-based developer have carved out a reputation for producing some of the most thrilling, original games to have ever graced the indutry.
Broadcast from a purpose-built studio, innovative 2018 creation Dream Catcher broke new ground with its titular life-sized game wheel making for a hugely immersive experience, which the software house then backed up with Monopoly LIVE - blending an iconic board game with some start-of-the-art production. The result is an online casino game unlike any other that swiftly captured the imagination of the whole industry, applying a fresh new twist to classic casino gaming.
Calling All Craps Fans!
Ensuring no tastes are forgotten, Evolution’s back catalogue is bursting with Live Casino iterations of table classics. Even fans of the age-old game of Craps will be delighted to learn that this game is now offered in a replicated live setting at Caxino, with Craps Live becoming the first live streamed Craps game in history.
Finding its origins in the USA, Craps often draws the most raucous crowd of the entire venue, alluring players in the hope of rolling ‘doubles’ again and again. The game has been immortalised in a number of Hollywood movies and US sitcom FRIENDS, as a measure of its popularity in certain quarters.
Evolution are not alone in their quest to redefine the Live Casino landscape. A host of other leading content creators such as NetEnt and Pragmatic Play continue to push industry boundaries with thrilling game contributions of their own.
