Gaming giant Playtech has announced that their full range of live dealer casino games has been reimagined and redeveloped in order to become fully compatible with the latest smartphones and tablets.
There are only a couple of companies that are devoting extensive resources to live gaming in spite of the genre’s rapidly increasing popularity and Playtech is undoubtedly at the top of the tree. Virtually every Playtech powered casino out there offers their games, which started off as a simple trio of blackjack, roulette and baccarat but has already grown to include casino hold’em with many more titles expected to be on the way. The tables themselves are broadcast to players around the world from dedicated gaming facilities across Europe and represent the most realistic, immersive casino action currently available.
A selection of their live games are already available on mobile through selected casino partners in the form of dedicated apps, but the latest developments mean that every Playtech partner will now be able to take advantage of the technology and add live dealer games to their existing gaming portfolio. This also serves to mean that Playtech will be the first and only online gaming company to deliver their entire live dealer gaming selection to mobile players.
Aviv Nankin, Head of Live Gaming at Playtech, commented: “As the mobile trend continues to grow, the ability to tap into this market via both Native and HTML5 platforms provides operators with additional ways to attract and retain players. By enabling operators to offer players live games anytime and anywhere, Playtech transforms the capabilities of on the go gaming in all markets throughout Europe and Asia, providing its licensees with a strong competitive advantage.”
The mention of HTML5 is particularly important as it means that players will not have to wait around for their favourite Playtech mobile casino to put together an app to take advantage of the new technology. Instead, the live games will be able to plug in to their existing mobile gaming platform and be delivered through a mobile browser, just like existing slots and table games. This also means that players on Windows and Blackberry smartphones which are somewhat ignored by app developers will face absolutely no downside when trying to play live casino games on their mobile.
We consider mobile gaming and live dealer action to be the two serious growth areas in the industry in the coming months and the opportunity to see both working together is of course always welcome. The games will all be available imminently so if you’re a live player and don’t have an account with a Playtech casino, then there’s absolutely no time to waste. We feature the cream of the crop here at MobileCasino.net and you simply cannot go wrong at Casino.com, Paddy Power Casino and Bet365 Casino which offer the best, most robust mobile gaming action with a great range of Playtech games and plenty of promotions and bonuses to boot.
