While the U.S. gambling states of Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware have yet to come up with regulations before online casino gambling becomes a reality in their regions, the focus of online casinos in UK and other European countries is augmented reality. The objective of which, is to make their online casino games look more real. The online gambling industry in these parts of the globe albeit touted as highly lucrative, has the highest level of competition, in view of its technology-based orientation.
Recently, major online casino brands such as Mr. Green and Crazy Vegas Casino entered into agreements with live dealer platform developers, as a way of stepping up with their casino game offerings. UK’s Crazy Vegas Casino collaborates with Playboy Live Dealers, to add real-life attractive female casino dealers in skimpy Playboy costumes, as a way to enhance player experience in their blackjack, roulette and baccarat games. Sweden-based Mr. Green, on the other hand selected Evolution Gaming to add English-speaking dealers with Swedish-versions, to the site’s casino table games.
Live casino dealers is not new to the large gambling operators such as 888 Holdings, Unibet, PartyGaming and Victor Chandler, since they were among the firsts to adopt the live dealer technology, when it was launched by Evolution Gaming in 2006. Augmented reality remains as the current trend in gaming and entertainment, which the less-publicized online casino sites have to keep pace with if they aim to survive the tough competition.
