888 Casino Ramps Up Live Dealer Gaming

888 Casino in cooperation with Evolution Gaming has rolled out a revamped live casino. The launch adds six state-of-the-art gaming tables to 888’s live dealer rooms: one for roulette and six for blackjack. Players on generous budgets will appreciate the VIP blackjack table for high rollers. 888 will use the dedicated live gaming rooms to run frequent promotions and encourage players to spend more time in its live casino.

New Dealers, New Look

888’s new live casino is staffed by a professional team of no fewer than 50 friendly and competent live dealers. Their job is to facilitate play and ensure players’ live casino experience at 888 is second-to-none. These ladies and gents look very chic in their elegant 888 uniforms, and are hoping to build strong relationships with players.

Live Casino Makeover

Even the playing rooms have a new image: specially branded 888 décor, including wall paneling, carpet, and lighting, all make for an authentic casino atmosphere.

Is 888 Bucking the Trend?

Since All Slots Casino ditched its live dealer games (in a move reported at the time by OCR), industry pundits have put forward several reasons for the closure, including that live dealer gaming is still a relatively new niche in the industry, and that live dealer games reportedly have a lower rate of play.

The Future of Live Dealer Games

Nonetheless, 888 is certainly not the only casino updating and improving its live casino offering – many online gaming providers clearly believe live gaming is a viable product. From a player’s perspective, if we consider the advances made in online slots in just a few years, it’s fair to say that live games are just scratching the surface of their potential, and that much bigger and better things are still to come.
