The definitive list of the best live Blackjack casinos

 
 


Evolution Gaming Casinos

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]evolution logoChoosing which Evolution gaming casinos to play at is as much about the software as it is about the experience you have with the online casino itself.

Things like withdrawal times & customer service become just as important when deciding where to play.

Casinos that have dedicated tables as part of their contract with Evolution Gaming are able to offer players tailored solutions with on-table promotions so it’s worth hunting one of these out.

The list below contains the best Evolution Gaming casinos I’ve come across.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Evolution Gaming Live Games

Evolution Gaming is without doubt the number one live casino provider across the whole of Europe and consistently wins industry awards for best software, operator and innovator.

It’s quite rare now for online casinos not to have a live casino as part of its games offering to players.

Some casinos that have Playtech games, for example, often have no choice over the live casino solution they can take and are stuck with the one that comes in the box.!

However independent casinos have a wide choice of solutions to choose from and this is where Evolution Gaming score highly.

So Why Evolution?

In a nutshell they have the widest selection of games, the most tables, live dealing studios all over Europe and one of the slickest operations around.

Whilst the basic service is very good, having dedicated tables allows the casino to offer a more tailored service to its players.

Apart from dedicated branding, you’ll also see the same dealers being used and on-table promotions being offered.

You’ll find the following 14 games at most Evolution Gaming Casinos.

I say most, as there are a few casinos that haven’t take all the games, you’ll find more details in my Lists of Live Casinos.

  • Live Blackjack, inc Free Bet Blackjack & Infinite Blackjack.
  • Live Roulette.
  • Live Baccarat.
  • Live Dragon Tiger.

Progressive Jackpots

During 2017, Evolution introduced a number of Progressive Jackpots to three of their poker games.

This is an optional extra that casinos can chose to take part in.

The jackpots are network wide and a player can take part my placing a 1 £€ side bet on the table.

The progressive jackpot is available on 3 games and through a bit of technical wizardry the figures you see below are the current Jackpot amounts, which are refreshed every few minutes.

Just reload the page to see.

Casino Hold’em jackpot is currently £[jackpot code=”casino”].

Evolution Live Blackjack

The specified gallery id does not exist.

You’ll find the following features on all Evolution live blackjack tables:

  • 8 Decks.
  • Double on anything.
  • No double on splits.

The range of tables is extensive and there is something for everyone.

The Party Table is unique because it has a dealer and a “sidekick”, whose mission is to make the play as enjoyable as possible.

You’ll get playing tips and lots of joking on the table. The minimum stakes are low to encourage new players.

There are plenty of tables with medium stake levels. High rollers are provided with a range of high stakes tables to choose from including the Salon Prive tables. These tables need a large balance to open the table, it’s high stakes and you can play on your own with no-one watching.

Perhaps the most impressive thing is the attention to detail over the things that speed up play.

Pre-decision is active, whereby you’re able to select the action you’ll take before it’s your turn.

The Blackjack side bets are comprehensive and the addition of the “Hot Flag” that identifies the player with the most consecutive wins makes it interesting for those wanting to bet behind.

Free Bet Blackjack and Infinite Blackjack both provide unlimited seats and some additional side bets (Hot3 & BustIt), not seen elsewhere.

Evolution has produced an alternative to standard blackjack. Power Blackjack gives players the opportunity to bet, two, three, or 4 times their Ante after the player’s first two cards have been dealt. All 9’s and 10’s have also been removed from the deck and with 4 optional side bets and the dealer peeking for BJ on Ace, Jack, Queen, and King you’re going to need to keep your wits about you.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Super Sic Bo

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”20727″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Based on the Asia dice game, Sic Bo, Evolution Super Sic Bo is a supercharged version.

Random multipliers up to 1000x can be applied to some of the numbers on the betting grid, making some payouts really worth having.

Bets can be made on all sorts of combinations of the dice roll.

I like to bet on any result that contains the number 5!, which makes for some interesting bets.

Super Sic Bo payouts are less than on regular Sic Bo as that is how the multipliers are funded. If you’re a purest, Playtech’s Sic Bo is probably a better option.

Deal or No Deal

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”20990″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Deal or no Deal is not strictly a live casino game. It’s one of a new breed of entertainment games being created by Evolution Gaming.

It’s a presenter led game based on the hit TV show of the same name, Deal or No Deal.

Like the TV game, you’re given a choice of whether to stick with the box you’ve been allocated or take the Bankers offer or money for it.

There’ a qualification process to enter the game, which costs money.

You’re them able to “top up” briefcases with additional funds before the Presenters starts openeing the boxes and making offers.

The aim is to decide whether to take the “Bankers Offer” or risk all for a bigger payout later in the game round.

I’ve had a play, you can see what I think of the game in this Video Review.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Football Studio / Top Card

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”19415″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Top Card or Football Studio is a game based on Dragon / Tiger that has a football theme.

The dealer is normally knowledgeable about soccer, initiates conversations and keeps track of the scores in important games.

Other variations are launched during big sporting events. So far there’s been Football and tennis.

The game is a straight clone of Dragon / Tiger. You place a bet on which side will have the highest card.

It’s as simple as that!

Lightning Dice

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”21153″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Live Lightning Dice is another dice game from Evolution. It’s similar to Super Sic Bo, however the betting options are limited to just the total of the 3 dice that are rolled.

Random multipliers of up to 1000x are allocated to several numbers during the game round.

It’s a quick game that uses a rather innovative Perspex tower to ensure the dice are given a good shake, rattle & roll before they land in the tray at the bottom.

You can read more in my Live Lightning Dice Review that contains a video and an explanation of the best numbers to be betting on.

Live Mega Ball

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”25007″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Live mega is a game based on the very popular Bingo. With Mega Ball a multiplier ball is selected at the end of the game round after all other balls have been drawn. this ball is assigned a multiplier. If this ball completes a line on your playing card the whole card payout is multiplied by that number.

This is a faced paced, if not something of a dull game to play.

It’s good for low stakes but probably won’t hold your attention too long.

The RTP is 95.40%, which is low, so expect your bankroll to disappear slowly unless you get a big multiplier win.
