Imagine you go out to a casino. The Blackjack table is full so you sit down in the lounge and play an online Blackjack game while you’re waiting. When a place opens up at the table – you carry on playing on your smartphone, because your online Blackjack game is a whole lot better than the game being played over at the Blackjack table! This idea might not seem so strange to you. In fact, you might already have had this experience. Anything’s possible and that goes double for Canada! The truth is that in today’s rapidly evolving online casino environment, the online experience often equals or even surpasses what used to be known as reality. Nowhere is the blurring of the line between “real” and “online” more clearly evident than in River Belle’s live dealer casino games.
Even better than the real thing
When you enter River Belle’s live dealer casino, you feel like you’re doing more than just taking part in a game – you’re participating in a game show. The dealer at the live Blackjack table seems more polished and professional, and at the same time more familiar and engaging, than any dealer you’ve ever known. That’s because he or she is dealing from a studio in front of multiple cameras. She’s received extensive camera training so she knows exactly how to interact with you and other online players to appear as natural and realistic as only an actor can. A flawless performance with movie-quality production values every time. No wonder the live Baccarat game feels like something out of a James Bond movie. And the multiple camera angles on the live Roulette transform the classic table game into a fascinating spectacle that captures the interest of the player-audience every time. Even better than the real thing, as the song goes.
Realism is key
At River Belle, we are committed to giving our players the best possible gaming experience. That’s why when we decided to launch a live dealer casino, we partnered with the best in the business. Evolution Gaming are renowned within the online casino industry as setting the gold standard for live casino games. Realism is key. The cards, the tables, the machines are real. No more random number generators – just live casino game-play with the added convenience that you can join a game wherever you are, whenever you like. To play, log in to River Belle, go to the live casino section and take your place at an open table. If you choose to bet, you use virtual chips to place real-time bets directly in the video. Video streaming technology creates a video link between you and the dealer seated in one of Evolution Gaming’s specially created studios in signature locations around the world.
Everything the dealer says or does is brought to you in HD TV quality at all times. Dedicated camera feeds bring the cards or Roulette wheel into focus on the device of your choice. Desktop, smartphone or tablet, Android, Windows, Blackberry or iOS, the interface is optimised for your operating system and screen size. Enjoy using the dedicated chat window to interact with the dealer and your fellow players in real time. If you have to wait to join a game, you may use the “bet behind” feature to place bets on the other players until a place is free. Additional features that add more variety to the game are side bets, bonus bets, game history, hot numbers and hot players.
Optimized live casino experience
At River Belle, live casino technology breathes new life into the classic card and table games you can play in our live dealer casino.
Use the pre-decision feature in our Classic Casino Blackjack to Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split at the same time as player 1 is making their betting decision. Or join a low-bet Blackjack Party for a whale of a time!
In our live dealer Roulette, the familiar European Roulette and French Roulette games are joined by Speed Roulette and Double Ball Roulette – a completely different take on the game because it uses two balls which land on two potentially winning numbers.
Baccarat comes in a number of variations including Classic Squeeze, Control Squeeze and Speed Baccarat, where every round is over in 27 seconds.
Much as we love our Video Poker, we have to admit that live casino Poker has the edge. You can’t beat the experience of trying to face off the live dealer at Classic 3 Card, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Caribbean Stud or Casino Hold’em Poker.
For a true game-show feeling, the Dream Catcher live money wheel is an interesting option. It’s the live dealer’s patter with the audience as he spins the wheel that really makes it feel like you’re part of a live studio audience.
