Best Live Casino Game Shows - The Ultimate Guide & How to Play
Live casino game shows are among the most popular titles at the Stake Casino. These live dealer game shows offer unique and immersive online gameplay experiences, providing some seriously big wins in the process.
Here, we explain everything you need to know about the best live casino game shows at Stake Casino and introduce some top tips to help you win big prizes for the ultimate game show experience!
What are Live Casino Game Shows?
Live casino game shows are live dealer casino games that take the format of some of our favourite TV game shows. There are several game show formats, such as money wheels, board games, and bingo-style games.
The first live casino games were launched back in 1995 by Microgaming (now known as Games Global). However, there were many issues with these initial releases – they were slow and could even be interrupted by phone calls (who remembers dial-up internet?).
Thankfully, the Internet has evolved and improved considerably since the mid-1990s, as have live casino game shows.
By 2012, most major studios focused on games with HTML5 technology, ensuring they were playable across multiple devices with immersive gaming experiences.
The undisputed king of live casino games is Evolution Gaming. The studio released Dream Catcher in 2017, regarded as the first live dealer game of its kind. Various other leading providers in the gaming industry – including Pragmatic Play – have followed suit, with some brilliant releases now available online.
How to Play Live Casino Game Shows?
Playing live casino game shows at the Stake Casino couldn’t be easier. Follow our simple steps below to get started playing our selection of games:
Begin by loading cryptocurrency into your account and entering the live casino lobby to find the game you’d like to play.
You can then read the detailed game description to find out things like the game’s RTP, the minimum and maximum bet limits, the paytable (odds and payouts) and even how volatile the game is.
All that’s left is to place your bets and watch the live action unfold. Bear in mind that betting windows in live casino games are typically short (between 20 and 40 seconds), so you need to pay attention and place your bets within the designated timeframe.
How do Live Casino Game Shows Work?
Although every live casino game show is unique, there are some similarities in the way that they all work:
They are hosted in studios by real-life hosts. You can interact with the host, but they can’t see you.
The games are live-streamed in real-time and hosted by Stake.com. When you join a live casino lobby, you play alongside dozens, if not hundreds of other players.
The outcomes in most live casino game shows are determined by random number generators (RNGs). This ensures that payouts are fair and regular.
You can place several base game bets and side bets in live casino games. You can find details of your options in the game description.
Many game shows have bonus rounds that you can place bets on. The most significant wins are typically available within the bonus games.
What are the Rules of Live Casino Game Shows?
Every live dealer gameshow title has its own rules and special features that you need to be aware of, and the rules depend on the format and style of the game.
However, you will find that all live casino games begin with a short betting window in which you can make your selections.
You must also be aware of the betting limits (as low as 0.10 and as high as 10,000.00) and place a qualifying bet within the permitted range.
If you make an accurate selection and your bet wins, you are paid out according to the published pay table. You can check this in the game description before placing your bets so you know how much you stand to win.
