Inside a live dealer studio

What goes into the average live casino experience?

Evolution Gaming's live casino facility in Riga is purportedly the largest of its kind in the world, having opened its one hundredth table last month. But how does the company go about providing its live dealer service?

You may think that playing casino games live online is simply a case of the dealer putting a camera next to the table and starting play. In reality it is much more complex than that, with an average of ten staff working per table in Evolution's complex.

Each table requires a design and development team to create an experience that will appeal to players, pit bosses, surveillance teams and anti-fraud operators to oversee the action, as well as chat moderators and customer support staff. All this before we even mention the dealers.

Of course, different countries have different gaming tastes, so there is a wide array of games on offer including roulette, blackjack, baccarat and several variants of poker. At Evolution, there are dealers available for eight languages, to ensure demand is met.

In addition to this, there is further development planned. Chief Operating Officer Svante Liljevall recently said: "We are also expanding our training academy to provide regular training and assessments for both new and existing staff," suggesting that Evolution, at least, plan to offer even more opportunities to enjoy casino gaming with live dealers.
