Live Online Casinos That Offer Cashback

If you are used to playing in a regular online casino like the Rushmore Casino then you might be spoiled with a lot of cashback bonuses and constant reload bonuses. At a live dealer casino this is not as common and the reason behind this is that the margins for live dealer casino games is a lot lower than at a random number generated casino. The regular online casinos are able to adjust their payouts exactly as they please and this way they can in a way decide the precise amount of money that should be paid out to the players and how much should be kept for the casino itself. With alive online casino there are a lot of expenses and they also have to deal with the inevitable variance at the blackjack and baccarat tables.

A live dealer casino will have to pay employees, not only the ones working the customer support and the staff running the site but they also have to pay all the real live dealers that they have on the payroll. While a regular online casino they don’t have to pay any dealers as all the games they offer are virtual.

Then we have the thing called variance that I mentioned earlier. Even though all the casino games have a built in house edge that’s not a guarantee that they will always be making money every month. There could be months where a high roller manages to not only wipe out the whole months profit for a live dealer casino but will also be able to put a big dent in the entire years profit. The regular online casinos will not have to deal with these types of swings.

So Why Should You Play at Live Online Casinos Then?

Well there are many reasons for this but the main ones are that you know for a fact that the games are not rigged and you know the actual house edge at all the games you are playing as they are not RNG based. You also get a much more social experience compared to a regular online casino. If you are playing games like blackjack, roulette or baccarat then there is really no reason why you should not be playing at a live online casino.

Where To Get Live Online Casino Cashback

Even though it’s not very often that live online casinos are offering cashback deals it’s still possible to get them from time to time. At live casinos like SmartLive and LuckyLive they will run the occasional promotions where they offer both cashback deals on certain days and also reload bonuses for you take take advantage of. So make sure to have an account with these two live casino sites and sign up for their newsletter so that you don’t miss out on the cash back deals once they become available.

Which are the Best Live Online Casinos?

If you are frequent readers of this blog you already know that my favorite live dealer casino is the Ladbrokes Live Casino but there are still quite a few others that are really good too and they deserve to be mentioned here.

When deciding which casinos to list under the best live online casinos category I take the following things into consideration:

  • Number of years online
  • Customer support
  • Software
  • Bonuses and other promotions
  • Number of games offered

Since I have already written about the Ladbrokes Live Casino I won’t list them here as you can read my views on that casino in this post.

LuckyLive Casino

The LuckyLive Casino was one of the first live online casinos to go live on the Vuetec casino platform back in 2009. Just like the other live casinos running on the Vuetec software they are getting their games from an actual casino in Ireland called the Fitzwilliam Card Club. This gives you a 100% guarantee that the casino games are not rigged.

Another great thing about the LuckyLive Casino is that they are offering a 100% deposit bonus up to €100 for new players that is actually quite easy to clear.

At the moment the following games are available at the LuckyLive Casino:

SmartLive Casino

The SmartLive Casino has something that no other live dealer casino can offer, their own TV channel. This means that you will be able to place bets on your computer and then watch the roulette wheel on your TV. The games are obviously not limited to TV only so you will also be able to play and watch the games directly on your computer if you don’t have access to any of the channels broadcasting the SmartLive Casino games.

The only downside to the SmartLive Casino as I see it is their short opening hours when it comes to the blackjack and baccarat games but according to my sources they will be extending their opening hours pretty soon.

The following games are available at the SmartLive Casino: Live Casino

Now this list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t add a US friendly live dealer casino. The Live Casino are able to accept customers and deposits from USA. This is a reliable online sportsbook that have decided to add live dealer casino games to their portfolio.  The best thing about OddsMaker is that you will not only be able to play their live dealer casino games but you will also be able to bet on sports using the same account. Now for a sports bettor like myself this is great as I won’t have to move my money between the live casino sites and my sportsbook.

The following games are available at the OddsMaker Live Casino:

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.

The Future of Live Casino Gaming

The live casino gaming industry has been growing at an amazing pace the last few years but when it comes to expanding the number of games offered it’s still moving pretty slow. I personally love live dealer gaming and this is the main reason I created, so that I could share these casino games with other people and let them know that they don’t have to play the regular RNG blackjack and roulette tables anymore.

But the thing I like the least about the live dealer casino industry is that even though they have been very innovative when creating the live dealer games that we currently have they don’t seem to be working very har don getting new games out there on the market. Now I understand that launching a new live dealer casino game is not the same as launching a new slot game in a regular online casino as there is a lot more work behind the scenes when creating a live casino game. But I’m still pretty sure that if one of the bigger live casino providers like Playtech or Evolution Gaming really wanted to launch for example live dealer craps tables they would be able to do so within a couple of months.

I have been doing some thinking lately over which games could be transfered over to the live dealer gaming market if the software providers really put their mind to it. I came up with the list of games below, the ones I want to see the most are at top.

  • Live Dealer Craps
  • Live Dealer Pai Gow Poker
  • Live Dealer Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Live Dealer Texas Hold’em Poker (Actually available at but would like to see more casinos add this)
  • Live Dealer Casino War
  • Live Dealer Let It Ride
  • Live Dealer Money Wheel (This should be very simple to implement)
  • Live Dealer Bingo (Somethiong close is available at
  • Live Dealer Keno

Did I forget any games? If there are any other games that you would like to see added to this list simply drop me a comment below and I’ll make sure to update the list to include the game.

Live Online Casino Games Finally Available at Betfair

The online gambling giant have always been pretty decent when it comes to keeping up with the latest technology in the gaming industry but it’s just last week that they finally got around to adding a live dealer casino to their portfolio.

With a live dealer casino added at a major gambling site like this the live dealer games are surely going to take a huge upswing in general as their 3 million customers become aware of the live online casino phenomenon.

I am surprised that Betfair chose to go with the Playtech live casino platform over Evolution Gaming which is my personal favorite but it might be that the studio at Evolution is starting to get a bit crowded as new blackjack tables are added constantly. If Betfair were to start sending their players to the tables at Evolution it would surely create some waiting time at the live blackjack tables so maybe it’s for the better that they went with Playtech.

The Betfair live online casino is going to be a great option for casino players that are also looking to place some wagers on football matches or other sporting events as Betfair is mainly a sports betting exchange. This way you wouldn’t have to transfer money between different sites while playing live casino games as you have all the gambling alternatives under the same wallet.

At the moment the following live dealer games are available at the Betfair Live Casino:

  • Live Blackjack
  • Live Roulette
  • Live Baccarat

New Playtech Powered Live Online Casino at

The people behind have recently decided to launch a live online casino under the brand. The live casino is running on the Playtech platform which means you will have access to all the popular live casino games such as live blackjack, live baccarat, live roulette and live dealer sic-bo.

Even though the Playtech blackjack tables aren’t the fastest ones they are still a really good option for those of you looking for a genuine live casino experience. At the blackjack tables here you will be able to make your own decisions, these are not the boring strategy tables or early payout blackjack versions that are featured at other live dealer casinos.

We have managed to team up with to offer a pretty good welcome bonus for new players. When you sign up at through us at you will be getting a 100% first deposit bonus up to $ / £ / €150 that can be used at the live dealer casino games. This is one of the biggest bonuses offered by any live online casino so make sure to take advantage of this before it expires.

In the coming days we will add some videos of the live dealer games at to our Youtube channel so make sure to check that out.

When Are Live Dealer Casino Games Coming on the iPad?

As a proud iPad owner myself I have been thinking a lot about how cool it would be if a live dealer casino were to launch a version of their live dealer games that would work on the iPad. But before we will see that happening there are a couple of things they will need to overcome.

First of all Apple aren’t too keen on allowing real money gambling products in their App store. At the moment the only real money iPad gambling app in the store is the Bwin poker app that enables you to play poker for real money on the iPad. And this app is only available in Austria and the UK which means only players residing in those two countries are able to play iPad poker for real money at the moment.

Then there are casino sites like Slotland that are able to accept real money casino players using an iPad due to the fact that their website and casino games are iPad compatible. But they aren’t even close to offering live dealer casino games at the moment so that doesn’t really help us if we are looking for live dealer gaming on the iPad.

The other problem is that the iPad does not support flash and since all the instant play versions of the live dealer casino sites are flash based they will never work on the iPad. One solution could be using a software like LogMeIn for iPad which enables you to remotely access your computer from the iPad. But the problem here is that this program is not only expensive ($30 in the App store) but it is also way too slow to make your live dealer experience a pleasant one. I have tried it out myself and even though it’s really cool that you can access your desktop from the iPad it’s just not a viable option for playing live online casino games on the iPad.

Since Apple are completely against online gambling for as long as the US market is unregulated we probably won’t see any iPad friendly live dealer casino games any time soon, unless they somehow decide to implement a flash reader in an upcoming version of the iPad.

Give Us Live Dealer Craps Games

I don’t know about you but since the introduction of live dealer gaming I have been waiting for one of the live online casinos to launch a live dealer craps table. I am actually really surprised that none of the current live casinos have gotten around to adding this fantastic table game but I am guessing there just isn’t enough interest for the game amongst European casino players and the US friendly live dealer casinos probably don’t have the technology in place to provide live online craps yet.

Even though we have recently seen the launch of a couple of US facing live dealer casinos such as Live Casino and Live Casino they can’t really compare to the European counter versions. Don’t get me wrong, if you have never played on one of the EU live casino sites you will probably think the live dealer games at these casinos are awesome. But in reality they still have a long way to go before they can compare to live casino sites like LuckyLive Casino and Ladbrokes Live Casino. So if I was a gambling man (which I am) I would bet we won’t see any live dealer craps tables until online gambling is completely legal and regulated in the US. And once that happens it will probably be a software provider like PlayTech or Evolution Gaming who will come up with the technology for these tables.

Craps is a Perfect Fit For Live Online Casinos

Some casino games are just not well suited to become live casino versions. Take slots for example, since this is a random number generated game from the start I don’t see how this would ever become a featured game at a live dealer casino, and the same goes for video poker. But craps on the other hand, this would be a perfect fit for a live dealer casino but there are a couple of obstacles that they need to get by first. The main one being that the shooter can’t actually be in the studio and throw the dice for obvious reasons. But maybe this could be solved by having some automated machine from which the dice are thrown from when the shooter clicks a button on his or her screen. We have already seen this done with the automated roulette tables at SmartLiveCasino so I don’t see why a similar sulotion wouldn’t work for a live dealer craps game.

As I said, we probably won’t be seing any live dealer craps tables added at any live online casinos any time soon. But I sure hope I am wrong.

Are Live Dealer Casino Games Rigged?

A lot of people seems to be thinking that live dealer casino games are somehow rigged so I thought I would make this post and clear out some common misconceptions.

First of all it is important to know that all live dealer casinos have the house edge working to their advantage no matter what game you are playing. This means that they don’t have to rig any games, they will end up with a profit in the long run anyway. It would make no sense at all for a licensed live online casino to start rigging their games in order to win your money at a faster pace because chances are big that you will be losing the money to them anyway.

There are always rumours about fixed slot machines or other types of casino games but let’s take a closer look at the situation for online live dealer games.

Live Dealer Casinos Are Not Rigged

I can give you my personal guarantee that none of the live dealer casinos listed on this site are using unfair methods to win your money. All of these casinos are licensed and regulated in the UK which should make you feel a lot safer than when you are playing at a Random Number Generator casino that is not regulated or licensed anywhere.

Another thing that should make you feel certain that the live dealer casinos are not rigged is the fact that all of the dealers are shuffling the cards right infront of you at the end of each shoe. If they were doing something fishy with the cards you would be able to spot this instantly. This is true for both live dealer blackjack and live online baccarat.

There Are No Magnets Under the Roulette Tables

I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people in the chatting at various live online casinos claiming that there are magnets under the roulette tables which enables the casino to control the outcome of each spin. Now if you think this is true I ask you to sit back and give this some real thought. The game of roulette has a house edge of over 5% which is signficantly higher than the blackjack or baccarat tables. With a house edge that big why should they need to rig the tables with magnets risking their entire business and reputation to control and outcome that is inevidable anyway? Once again it just doesn’t make sense for the live dealer casinos to rig the roulette games or any other game for that matter. They have the house edge working in their favor and that is all they need.

Could Live Dealer Casino games Possibly Be Rigged?

Well obviously if someone really wanted to rig the games at a live online casino they would be able to figure out some way to do it. They could start shuffling the decks outside of the screen at the baccarat and blackjack tables and I suppose they could rig the dice at the Sic-Bo tables and arrange the roulette table to produce constant losers.  In theory it could happen, sure. But at the risk of sounding like a broken record I have to say it again. The live dealer casinos are NOT rigged.

If you are still not sure if the live dealer casino games are rigged or not I would suggest that you stay away from them but it would be a shame to miss out on something that is so much fun.

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.
