Although Live Casino Game Shows have been around for a couple of years, they are still considered as a fairly new concept in the casino world. Especially when compared to Roulette, Poker, and Blackjack - which have been around since forever - and the first slot machine games, called one-armed bandits, which date back to 1898, when they originated in San Francisco.
Live casino game shows offer enthusiasts the chance to interact with dealers, thus experiencing a far more realistic casino experience. Although Game Shows are still considered as “Live Casino Games”, they are completely different from traditional Live Dealer Games like Baccarat and Poker.
The very first live casino game show - Dream Catcher - was launched by Evolution Gaming in 2017. Here at PlayFrank Casino Dream Catcher is still one of our players’ favourites.
Dream Catcher uses a typical money wheel, similar to the manually triggered money wheels one used to find in traditional fairs and circuses.
Dream Catcher is very straight-forward and all players have to do is place bets on where they believe the wheel will stop. However, PlayFrank Casino players still find it exciting, probably because it offers quite a few opportunities to win.
Before the dealer spins the Dream Catcher wheel, players place bets on where the wheel will stop. The wheel is divided into a series of numbers, with each number offering a different payout depending on its odds. The game is hosted by a live presenter who interacts with players, keeping the game lively and engaging.
After Dream Catcher, Evolution introduced several other games that are based on, or use the features of popular games, like Monopoly Live, one of the most successful Live Game Shows to date.
The Game Shows gambling model is simple: to provide gamblers with an even more immersive experience than traditional live casino games. The hosts of Game Shows act more as guides for players and interact with them in real-time, often engaging in conversations about topics unrelated to the game itself. This would be unheard of when playing Blackjack against the dealer and other players, for example.
Live casino game shows are usually filmed and streamed from dedicated studios or even actual land-based casinos, with the latest cameras and audio equipment to provide a high-quality viewing experience. Players can participate in the game through their computer or mobile device, with the live presenter acting as the host and guiding them through each round.
Another popular game show with PlayFrank Casino players is Monopoly Live, which was also created by Evolution Gaming. Loosely based on the classic board game Monopoly by Hasbro, Monopoly Live features a giant spinning wheel which is activated manually by the host, and a virtual 3D Monopoly board. PlayFrank players bet on where they believe the wheel will land, with the chance to win a variety of prizes including multipliers, bonus rolls and cash prizes. Monopoly Live also features an exciting bonus game where players can roll the virtual dice and move around the Monopoly board, collecting cash prizes along the way.
Another highly loved Evolution game show by PlayFrank Casino gamblers is Crazy Time. Crazy Time combines prizes from “spin the wheel” and “bonus games” to give players a truly unique gambling experience. Crazy Time features a giant spinning wheel which, unlike the Monopoly Wheel, is divided into various segments, with each segment offering a different prize. Players can also win access to a variety of bonus games, including Cash Hunt, Pachinko and Coin Flip.
PlayFrank Casino gamblers also love to play other live game shows created by other renowned casino game providers. Some of these include Authentic Gaming's MultiBet Baccarat, Ezugi's Baccarat Cricket Table and 32 Cards, and SkyWind's Baccarat A01.
PlayFrank players also love to play Lightning Baccarat, Deal or No Deal Live, Mega Ball and Gonzo's Treasure Hunt. These live game shows are truly “unusual” as they provide players with a unique experience and the live presenter’s engagement helps keep the game engaging and interactive.
Live casino game shows have sealed their reputation as a great way for players to experience the excitement of live casino games in a completely new and different way. Can anyone imagine the reaction of the first provider who was involved in creating a spinning wheel casino game show? They must have felt they were going back 100 years!
Although it seems like Online Slots will always be the most popular casino games, it must be admitted that live casino game shows have added a breadth of fresh air to the online gambling world. We are confident that Live Casino Game Shows will only evolve and increase in number and geniality. Stay tuned to PlayFrank Casino’s Casino Game Shows to be the first to enjoy newly released live game shows.
