If you enjoy playing at brick-and-mortar casinos but want something more out of your gameplay, then Live Casino games may be what you’re looking for. Live Casinos specialise in table games like roulette, poker, blackjack and baccarat, but there’s far more to them.
Are you looking for dynamic gameplay, professional live dealers and fantastic rewards? Read on to find out how you can play Live Casino games, find the best casino bonuses and discover a selection of authentic games at EnergyCasino.
HOW DOES A LIVE CASINO WORK?
Live Casino games are live-streamed from custom-designed studios across the globe, using cutting-edge equipment and multiple cameras to deliver an authentic representation of real table and card games. Unlike live streams, these games are far more interactive, with live dealers supervising every moment of gameplay and engaging the players in conversation.
To play Live Casino games, simply take a virtual seat on your chosen game, set your wager by selecting a chip corresponding to your preferred bet value and wait for the betting window to expire. Once all bets are closed, the game will proceed. If you’re playing live roulette games, for example, that means the dealer will launch the ball along the rim of the spinning wheel and wait until it lands in one of the pockets. After the winning number is announced and the winnings are paid, another betting round commences.
In general, Live Casino games work similarly to land-based table games. The most significant differences are additional rules on unique game variants, more optional side bets and other special features, like jackpots and interactive minigames.
Players may also benefit from several Live Casino functions which make Live Casino games more convenient to play. A good example is the Live Chat function, which allows players to communicate with one another and with the live dealer. In a few years, we can also expect Live Casinos to start using VR technology as well. We’re already seeing this trend with online slots and video games, but only time will tell when and if Live Casinos take the same direction.
BEST LIVE CASINO GAMES
To stand out from the crowd, a Live Casino must offer a rich selection of casino games. At EnergyCasino, you’ll find a competitive variety of games from distinguished providers like Evolution, LiveG24, BetGames, Pragmatic Play Live, Quik and Ezugi. We offer hundreds of live dealer games, including live table games like poker and blackjack, as well as a comprehensive selection of live game shows. Here are the most popular game categories:
The creativity of game developers is to be admired, which means that our portfolio only keeps on growing. We regularly update our game library to offer the hottest new releases and more tables of your favourite classics.
Below you can find a short overview of the most popular live games, along with their most popular variants, offered at EnergyCasino:
The primary game of choice for many players is poker. The rules of this card game are simple, but it’s a challenging game to master. The player’s task is to achieve the best hand at the table, but the road to victory won’t be the same in every game. Poker is one of the most popular casino games available in our Live Casino, and players can choose between the many variants. All poker tables are supervised by professional dealers, who oversee the gameplay and know the rules in and out.
The tables you’ll find may have rules that differ from how poker is played in land-based casinos, and you’ll definitely come across unique side bets and features, like the progressive jackpot in Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
A characteristic element of playing at a Live Casino is the possibility of playing with a real dealer, and live blackjack is the most popular game played between a player and a dealer. The player’s task is to build a hand with a value of 21, or as close to it as possible. But if your hand score exceeds 21, that’s a bust for you and a win for the house. The gameplay is not as simple as it is at first glance, and players must be familiar with basic blackjack strategy before playing — you must know when to hit, stand, split, double down and take insurance.
Blackjack can be considered a dynamic card game; one round takes only a few seconds to complete, and as many as eight players can meet at the same table to play against the dealer. Even though some tables offer limited seating, they also offer the option to bet behind. On top of that, you’ll find plenty of tables that allow an unlimited number of players!
Live Blackjack is a top-rated game in EnergyCasino’s live portfolio, so you’ll find all of the popular blackjack variants in our ‘Live Blackjack’ lobby. Enjoy games like Power Blackjack, Free Bet Blackjack, Lightning Blackjack, Blackjack Atlantic and Infinite Blackjack. You can also grab a seat at our dedicated table — Energy Blackjack 1 — made exclusively for EnergyCasino players.
Like many other Live Casino games, live blackjack offers a variety of interesting side bets; look out for the Any Pair, 21+3, Hot 3 and Bust It bets.
Live baccarat is an excellent choice for beginners and players who enjoy fast-paced Live Casino games. When betting opens, players must wager on Player, Banker or Tie. The Player and Banker are the two sides, and neither represents the house; however, most tables take commission from Banker wins. There are also multiple side bets, like P Pair, P Bonus, B Pair and B Bonus. Generally, players are advised against betting on Tie — even though the payout is significantly better than on the other bets, the odds of hitting a tie are rather unfavourable.
Roulette is a game of chance that’s popular with players who enjoy experimenting with betting strategies and systems. It offers a multitude of wagering options, including even-money bets and just about every number combination imaginable. The objective is to correctly predict which numbered pocket the ball will land in on the spinning roulette wheel. Players don’t have to be exact in their predictions — there are wagers on the colours, even/odd, dozens or high/low as well.
Live Casinos have more exciting game options, namely live game shows. The most popular ones are those inspired by famous TV game shows, like Wheel of Fortune or Deal or No Deal. There’s no cookie-cutter explanation of the rules, as each live show offers truly one-of-a-kind gameplay. These games take place in vibrant studios with engaging hosts and plenty of extraordinary features!
There are many individual games that don’t quite fit the categories above, so we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the other games we have. If you’re interested in playing dice games, have a look at Craps, Lightning Dice, Sic Bo, Super Sic Bo and Dice Duel. Card-game enthusiasts may enjoy Football Studio, Speedy 7, War of Bets, Andar Bahar and Teen Patti. Other unique and popular games include Fan Tan, Race for Cash and Deal or No Deal.
ONLINE CASINO VS LIVE CASINO GAMES — WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
There’s no denying that playing against other players and a real dealer differs significantly from playing against a computer algorithm or on the casino floor. So, what are the advantages of playing Live Casino games?
Realistic casino experience — Live-dealer casino games offer the same look and feel as a land-based casino, but without the hassles of getting to one.
No buy-ins or other restrictions — You can pick a table that suits your bankroll, and you don’t have to ever wait for a seat to free up.

⭐How do I participate in live casino tournaments?
First, read the tournament’s Terms and Conditions to note the minimum wager, qualifying games, wagering requirements and other criteria, like expiration dates and which games you can use your winnings on. If you like what you see, find the ‘OPT-IN’ button and start playing.
⭐IS LIVE CASINO AVAILABLE ON MOBILE?

⭐CAN LIVE DEALERS INFLUENCE THE GAME?
No. A live dealer is there to facilitate gameplay and help players understand the basics. Occasionally, the live dealer will share insights and comment on the game’s rules; however, they will never share advice or influence your betting decisions in any way. As for the cards, dice and the game itself, there is nothing that the dealer can do to influence the outcome of a game round — every live dealer is trained to protect the integrity of the game. For your peace of mind, know that all live dealers are monitored every second of gameplay, and all shuffling of cards, dice rolls, wheel spins, etc., are done automatically or with supervision by the casino floor manager or supervisor.
