The live casino experience is gaining a lot of popularity. So much so in fact, that most online casinos now have at least a few live games on offer. Spin Casino has gone one step further and incorporated a live casino as a whole separate element alongside its main casino site. This makes it easy if you're only after live gaming, but the real question is, does it offer anything better or different to existing online casinos?
The live gaming aspect of the site is provided by Evolution Gaming, which is certainly a good start. Evolution is pretty much the top provider for live gaming, and that means each live experience is slick and fun.
Microgaming is also onboard, and again, this is definitely a good thing given their reputation and product quality. The site is available across multiple platforms too, so you can access it and play on multiple devices. More on this later.
The live casino is accessible on tablets and other mobile devices, and is fully compatible with both Android and Apple operating systems. You get the same experience as the full desktop site on mobile, and everything has been optimized to fit the smaller screen.
The only slight problem might come from the fact that phones and some less powerful tablets might cause a bit of slowdown or loss of stream quality for live games, especially if you're on public Wi-Fi, which can be slow. Overall though, it's a solid mobile experience.
The live casino has been made to look and feel distinct from Spin Casino's main casino site, and this is a good thing. It gives the impression of a whole new experience, and has more of a focus on the atmosphere inside a casino rather than the high-roller lifestyle of the main site.
If you want to get going as soon as possible, the site makes it easy. You can dive straight in or simply browse and read up on what's on offer, which is a nice feature for first time live casino players. Everything is laid out neatly and clearly, and the site uses the scroll down feature so you don't have to click away from the main page, making the most important game information easily accessible.
Spin Casino Live Casino has all the classic casino table games covered. You can play blackjack, roulette, Texas hold'em, poker and baccarat. All the games feature real cards and wheels, and of course, a live dealer taking you through the game. You can communicate with dealers using live chat, and the site offers a range of sound and visual options so you can tweak your live gaming experience to your preference.
There are some pretty standard promotions available at Spin Casino Live Casino. You can expect to find things like deposit match bonuses, which can be used to give you a few “free” games in a sense, or soak up a few losses as you get to grips with things. Always make sure to double check the terms of these offers of course, as they often require a minimum deposit.
The site has a number of well-known banking options, and supports Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller and Trustly, as well as a few more options. In general, it's best to use Skrill or Neteller if you can, as these tend to give you the fastest payout speeds. Depositing speed is essentially the same for all methods.
Support-wise Spin Casino Live Casino does a great job. Finding the support section could be easier (you need to scroll to the bottom of the page to access the quick links), but once you're in the support section everything is clear. There's email, telephone and live chat available, and a detailed FAQ section as well.
As live casinos go, this is certainly a strong offering. The fact that it's a separate site from the main Spin Casino, with its own identity, is a nice approach. The design and feel of the site transports you to that of a casino environment, and all the major table games are covered.
Support and banking are solid, and the overall layout makes things very easy to get to grips with even if you've never used a live online casino before. On the other hand, some players might view the separate live site as a bit of a pain, especially if you like to play slots while you wait for the next live game to start. Generally though, it's pretty hard to find fault with Spin Casino Live Casino.
