One of the main complaints from players who love nothing more than spending their time at the live casino is that many platforms simply don’t have a wide enough variety of games to keep them occupied.
Well, that’s not an accusation that can be levelled at BetRegal, who serves up a healthy selection of live dealer titles from a range of software providers.
From roulette and blackjack to baccarat and the exciting Dream Catcher, BetRegal has stacks of options for live game fanatics.
Like many before them, BetRegal has opted to partner with two of the very best software providers in the business: NetEnt and Evolution Gaming.
NetEnt will be familiar to anyone who has frequented an online casino in the past. Its games are big, bold and feature the latest tech innovations to ensure players are fully immersed in their gaming.
As for Evolution, it’s no coincidence that it's the live dealer provider of choice for many casinos. Its games are great fun to play, but most importantly they work seamlessly across all devices: whether you’re playing on desktop, mobile or tablet.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a BetRegal app available as yet, but the site can be enjoyed via your desktop and mobile browser, whether you’re using an iOS or Android device.
Mobile gamers will note that the live casino provided by BetRegal on smaller devices is, in essence, the main desktop site simply given a bit of a nip and tuck.
Ordinarily, we would consider that a problem, but happily the BetRegal site is a doddle to use, and so that's reflected in the mobile live casino too.
The games are displayed in the typical grid format, but the good news is that the thumbnails are nice and big; you won’t need to squint to see which game is which, nor will your clumsy fingers accidentally select the wrong title.
There's something that is rather basic about BetRegal, and depending on your outlook on life that will decide whether it’s the live casino for you.
There are no bells and whistles here, with big, ‘blocky’ graphics acting as a way-finder for the various games available. You'll also find a nice big image advertising the firm’s welcome bonus though, which is well worth a second look. Generally it’s just a very simple – dare we say outdated – website page.
The menu in the top left-hand corner of the screen will also help you to navigate your way around the casino, and carrying out all your admin functions – making a deposit/withdrawal, checking balances etc – is a breeze.
Everything is just really big at BetRegal, from the size of the text to the magnitude of the buttons, and it helps to give the live casino an old-school feel; whether deliberately or otherwise.
While BetRegal has decided to focus on a small number of live dealer games, what it has done is ensure there are lots of different variants for each. Roulette, blackjack and baccarat fans will surely be satisfied by the sheer range of options available.
This is, arguably, the one area that lets BetRegal down.
There are no bonuses or promotions relating specifically to the live casino, and indeed there aren’t any ongoing promos for casino players of any description.
So, you’ll have to make do with a solitary welcome bonus, which thankfully is a good one.
Otherwise, there’s little to get excited about, although be sure to check out the ‘Challenge of Champions’ contest. Play the specified casino games, earn points and climb up the leaderboard; prizes will be handed out at the end of the competition.
When it comes to contacting the BetRegal customer support team, you have two main options: live chat and email. You'll find a member of the team online between 06:00-23:00 GMT every day.
The website also contains a ‘call us’ option, although any further details about numbers to dial are kept mysteriously from view.
There is a reassuringly long list of payment methods that BetRegal accepts. This includes the mainstays (Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller) as well as more niche options or those native to international countries they cover: Entropay, trustly, ecoPayz, bank transfer and many more.

If you’re the kind of player that enjoys live dealer games almost exclusively, then BetRegal comes highly recommended.
It might not have the flashiest of websites, nor the most lucrative of promotions and bonuses, but what it does well is deliver lots of different live casino games with plenty of tables to sit at.
It’s simple, but very effective.
