What to expect when playing live dealer table games at Royal Vegas Mobile Casino.
Just recently, I published an updated 2018 review of the Royal Vegas Live Online Casino platform. So I won’t go into too much detail about what games are on offer or how to play them; just a brief listing. You can read the full review for more on that. (Along with my mini-rant over the fact that there’s no longer a live dealer baccarat option).
Today, we’re going to discuss exactly what you can expect when accessing the operator’s live tables. We’ll go over things like accessing the tables, load times and connection speeds, and the overall ambiance of the games.
Live Dealer Table Games
For the moment, the live dealer offerings pretty basic. Fortunately, they’re presented by Evolution Gaming‘s superior platform, so that’s a big plus. I’m not sure why Royal Vegas doesn’t opt to host more tables (like baccarat – ahem!), since Evolution does have a much larger variety in its portfolio. But here’s what you will find.
- Live Blackjack ($1, $5 and $10)
- Live Roulette (European)
- Live Casino Hold’em
- Live Caribbean Stud
- Live 3-Card Poker
- Live Dream Catcher
Accessing the Mobile Live Casino
When accessing the website via mobile browser, the live casino games are pretty easy to find. From any page, you’ll see the games menu right in the middle of the screen, beneath the big promotional welcome bonus offer and ‘Tap to Play‘ button. The games menu starts with ‘Favorites‘, ‘Featured‘, ‘Slots‘, etc. Swipe left to scroll through these until you see the Live Casino option, and press it. The games will appear below.
From here, it’s pretty straight forward. Depending on the game you chose, you’ll either be automatically taken to the table, or given a list of tables/dealers to choose from.
Loading Tables and Connection Speeds
Be sure to give your table plenty of time to load. The length of time this takes will depend mostly on the connection speed of your mobile device, and a little bit on how busy the tables are at the moment. 20-40 seconds should do it.
Evolution utilizes some very advanced technology, with state-of-the-art HD cameras for superior video and audio quality. So long as your device and connection speed are capable of handling it, you’ll experience exquisite streaming of both.
Be advised, if you aren’t on a decent WiFi connection or at least a steady 4G network, you may experience a bit of lag or intermittent freeze-framing. Try turning down the video quality if this happens, because it will suck the entertainment right out of the experience.
Live Online Casino Layout & Ambiance
Evolution’s live dealer games are streamed from their studio in Riga, Latvia. The tables are laid out in a circular manner, with the player seating positions on the outside. This creates a genuine land-based casino atmosphere, where you can see more tables and their dealers going about their business in the background.
The sound quality is spectacular, and also helps increase the real-feel ambiance. There are microphones set up everywhere. You can actually hear the sound of the cards sliding across the felt as they’re dealt, and the clink-clank of the roulette ball as it spins around the wheel.
The reality of playing among real people is further enhanced by interactivity and communication. You can chat with the dealer and other players through a side-panel chat window, while the dealer can communicate directly via microphone. If there’s an issue, no worries. Just like a real casino, there are professional pit bosses on the floor to take care of any problems or concerns at the live casino table games.
Royal Vegas Canada is Canadian friendly, a legitimate brand and operator that has been our editorial pick for back to back years. Highly recommended for prospective Canadian gamblers.
