Bet24 Live Casino Pays Out €180.000 to Roulette Winner

Due to the nature of the live casino games it’s not very often that we hear about huge wins at the live blackjack, roulette and baccarat tables. Big wins on these games don’t come around as often as the progressive jackpot games like online slots and video poker games for example. But recently there was one very lucky British guy who claimed a €180.000 scalp at the Malta based Bet24 live casino.

According to a representative at Bet24 this UK player managed to make a €100.000 profit in just 13 rounds, which took about 20 minutes. After that he played an additional 29 rounds of live dealer roulette and got his total winnings all the way up to €180.000. For some reason that’s were the information about this win ends. I am very curious to know more in detail how you could possibly rake in this amount playing roulette. I know the limits are pretty high at <a href="http://www.livedealercasino benicar” target=”_self”>Evolution powered casinos such as this one but it would still require quite a bit of luck and high stakes in order to net €180.000 over a total of 42 spins.

My guess is that this person has been playing at least €500 per spin on random numbers because there is just no way you can win this amount by simply betting the even money wagers at the roulette table.

No matter how it happened I would like to congratulate the winner on this amazing feat and if you ever read this please drop a comment below and let us all know how the session played out.

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:

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

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.
