Ventuno live Blackjack Game Launched by Evolution Gaming

There’s no need to head down to brick and mortar casinos these days to enjoy all of the exciting gaming action you can handle. There are many online versions of live-dealer games available and another one has just been introduced as Evolution Gaming recently launched a brand-new live blackjack game in Italy which is known as Ventuno.

The game has been approved and regulated by the AAMS (Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato) and is available to all of Italy’s Evolution licensees that operate in the nation’s re-regulated gaming market, as reported to Ventuno is sure to be a hit in Italy since it Italian-speaking dealers who have been recruited from local land-based casinos. Ventuno joins another Evolution Gaming concept, which is the popular Venezia Roulette game.

Gionata La Torre, who is Evolution Italy’s Chief Executive Officer, said the Ventuno blackjack game should prove just as popular Venezia Roulette as both of the games make Italian casino players feel at home. He added that all of the dealers speak Italian and are experienced in the country’s gaming culture and customs. This means online players are receiving the highest possible level of localised, professional casino service.

La Torre said that even though players can access the game on their laptops and personal computers, they’ll enjoy the atmosphere of sitting at a real casino blackjack table. Players are able to interact live with the dealers and other players by an internet chat system and the dealer’s voice can be heard by all players.

Jen von Bahr, who is the co-founder and CEO of Evolution Gaming said that the Ventuno game shows that the company is dedicated to providing the Italian online-gaming market with the best possible products and services available. He believes that localised gaming solutions are an ideal way of creating strong bonds between online casinos and their local customers.

New Idea: Live Dealer Blackjack Tournaments

I had some spare time on my hands yesterday so I was just sitting around thinking of way the live dealer casino could improve other than the ideas I had already mentioned in my post about the future of live dealer gaming. One thing came to mind that I had actually managed to leave out of that post even though it’s one of my favorite casino games, blackjack tournaments.  I am very competitive by nature so I prefer playing blackjack games against other players rather than against the dealer. Not only does this eliminate the house edge as I am no longer competing against the dealer but I also fulfill that need inside of me to compete with other people.

Even though the regular real money blackjack tournaments are perfectly fine as RNG games since you are not playing against the house it would still be really cool to see it added as a live dealer blackjack game at some of the live online casino sites. Just imagine having the ability to play online blackjack tournaments with live dealers where you could have the ability to chat with other players using your webcam and microphone, now that would be really cool.

Unfortunately I don’t think we will see this added any time soon and the main reason for this is that a blackjack tournament is not financially viable for the live dealer casinos out there as it’s taking quite some time to complete a tournament and the fees they would be raking in will probably not cover their expenses for hosting a tournament. It would probably be a great addition to any live casino though and it would surely get players to change over from their current live casino site to a site offering live dealer blackjack tournaments.

Fast Paced Live Online Blackjack Tables

One of the biggest issues when playing live online blackjack is the time it takes for a new hand to start after the previous is over. At the PlayTech powered live dealer casinos the wait in between hands is 30 seconds which can feel like too much and you are likely to get bored quickly as most of us are action junkies. At the SmartLive Casino the wait in between hands is also 30 seconds but here it’s understandable as they are also broadcasting their games on TV which might require some extra time for the players to make their bets.

The leading software provider when it comes to live dealer gaming right now is Evolution Gaming and they are once again showing that they are the leader when it comes to knowing what the players want as they recently launched their live blackjack tables with only 8 seconds between hands. Now if you are used to the regular 30 seconds to place your bets you will probably think the new 8 seconds is too fast for you. But you have to keep in mind that all Evolution Gaming casino have the repeat button which is all you need to click in order to place your bets. They don’t require you to press a confirm button before the games start like at the PlayTech casinos.

After just a couple of sessions I am sure you will love the new blackjack tables with only 8 seconds delay between hands, I sure do. This change will probably make it easier for people who usually play the fast paced online blackjack games with a RNG to head over to the live online blackjack tables instead and enjoy the good looking dealers and the completely fair gaming.

If you haven’t tried out any of the Evolution Gaming casinos yet we can recommend the Ladbrokes Live Casino which is my favorite live online casino.

My Favorite Live Online Casino

All casino players have their personal favorites amongst the casinos they have played at. It might be because they hit that jackpot once that paid for a week in Hawaii, it could be the hot dealers at the live blackjack tables or it’s the feel of the software that keeps you coming back to the same casino every time you play.

In my case I keep coming back to my favorite live dealer casino because of the following three reasons:

  • They are using the Evolution Gaming platform which is the best one out there, in my opinion that is.
  • They are also offering sports betting which means I won’t have to move money between sites to bet on sports.
  • They have great customer support.

So which live dealer casino could I be talking about? It’s the Live Casino obviously. These guys have always been treating me really well and one experience that I had lately made me realise even more that this is by far my favorite live casino on the internet.

Let me tell you what happened. I was sitting at the blackjack table betting on multiple boxes (three to be exact) and my bets varied between €100 and €200 per box for about 2 hours of play. Then all of a sudden there is a glitch in the software and instead of accepting my three boxes with €100 on each I end up sitting on one seat and the bet is €1000. This all happens very fast and I tell the dealer in the chat that there has been some kind of glitch and that I need a pit boss. The pit boss gives me the usual runaround, telling me that I will be contacted by Ladbrokes support once they have investigated the issue. In the meantime I lose the hand and €1000 is deducted from my balance.

I have been gambling online for the last 10 years so this is not the first time something goes wrong due to an obvious software glitch but I also know that most gaming companies would never admit to something like this and I didn’t have much hope of ever seeing that money again.

Within 48 hours I get a phone call from a customer support agent at Ladbrokes telling me they haven’t found any software glitch and I must have bet €1000 without knowing it (go figure).  I then tell her to look at my betting pattern for that day, I was playing three boxes all day long and never bet over €200 and now all of a sudden I should have bet €1000 on one box. It just didn’t make any sense for me to do that. She agreed with me and said that she was ready to compensate me with a €400 good will bonus even though this was my own fault in their opinion. I then told her that I’m not interested in a €400 compensation when I lost €1000 due to an obvious glitch. The customer support rep then told me she would fight for my cause and hopefully get me the full €1000 refund.

And sure enough, within 24 hours I get this email:


In regards to our previous discussion earlier today.

I have spoken to my management team and they have agreed to credit your
Gaming account with the full amount of EUR1000 as a gesture of goodwill.

This is on the understanding that should this happen again, we will not
be in any position to refund a stake that has been incorrectly selected.

When playing online it is your responsibility for making sure the bets
you have selected are correct.

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we
investigated this issue for you.

We hope that you continue to play on Ladbrokes Live Dealer.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us again and we
will be more than happy to help you.

Kind regards,

Customer Services
Ladbrokes online Gaming

This is the kind of customer support that keeps players coming back to an online casino as trust is one of the major factors when choosing an online casino. I completely trust Ladbrokes with my money after that incident and I know that they got my back if something should go wrong at the virtual felt.

If you are looking to sign up with a safe and trusted live dealer casino then Ladbrokes should be right on the top of your list.

We Now Have a YouTube Channel!

When running a website about live dealer casinos it’s not always easy to get people to understand just how awesome these games are by just writing it down in words. Not everyone will understand what a live online casino is just by reading about it as it is quite a new product on the online gambling scene. That’s why we have decided to start our own YouTube channel so that you will be able to see for yourself what it is all about.

Our intentions is to get a lot of videos up on the channel so we are covering all the aspects of live dealer gaming, from live blackjack to live sic-bo.

We are also going to start blogging a bit more often to keep the site up to date with the latest live casino promotions and we will be doing some post about our own live casino sessions with videos of our play.

Below is a sample of a video from our YouTube channel. If there are any particular videos you would like to see added just let us know by dropping a comment in the box below and we’ll make sure to add it.
