At the start, live dealer games at online casinos exactly replicated the land casino variants of roulette, blackjack and baccarat. But over time innovative add-ons have been seen. Evolution Gaming has been in the fore front of this trend. Its Infinite Blackjack and Lightning Roulette are prime examples. You can play these games at the live dealer platforms of online casinos like Kroon Casino and 32Red Casino.
Infinite Blackjack overcomes one of the major drawbacks of live dealer games. There are a fixed number of seats at live blackjack tables, usually about seven. Players often have to wait in queue for a seat to be vacated. Infinite Blackjack has a scalable table in which there are unlimited seats. So an unlimited number of players can wager at the same time without any waiting time. Evolution Gaming has accomplished this by dealing all players a common initial two-card hand. Thereafter, each player can play the hand as they want to. Infinite Blackjack offers four optional side bets as well. Some of these are common in the RND online casino blackjack variants. Any Pair wins on any pair made with the first two cards of the player’s hand. 21+3 wins on defined three-card poker hand rankings made with the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s face up card. Hot 3 wins on three-card combinations totalling 19, 20 and 21 made with the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s face up card. Bust It wins if the dealer busts with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 or more cards. The popular Six Card Charlie rule is also included in Infinite Blackjack.
Lightning Roulette has received awards at prestigious industry forums. The roulette game combines live casino action with RNG game play. The game is played with a European Roulette wheel and offers all the usual bets. In each spin of the live roulette wheel, up to five Lucky Numbers are struck by lightning and displayed on a screen. Each Lucky Number is associated with a Lucky Payout, which is a multiplier ranging from 50x to 500x. These numbers and multipliers are generated using RNG software synchronised with the spin of the wheel. If the ball lands on any Lucky Number and if a player has made a Single Number bet on that Lucky Number, they will have their bet amount multiplied by the Lucky Payout associated with that Lucky Number. In order to compensate for this extra payout, normal Single Number bet wins pay 30:1 instead of the usual 35:1. All other live roulette bets pay normally.
