With the world of live casino games being more competitive than ever, punters have a lot of choices. My personal favourites, however, are game shows, as each seems to bring a new level of innovation. Exciting bonus rounds and immersive visuals are among the things I look out for. Below are some of my top-rated live game shows, with a brief overview of each.
One of the most popular live game shows is Crazy Time. It was created by Evolution Gaming and features a giant wheel, which has various numbers and potential bonuses displayed on it. Players can choose to place a bet on any of the outcomes.
Personally, the bonus round is something that I look out for. During the bonus, winning players are given the chance to select 1 of 3 different coloured arrows before a giant 'Crazy Time' wheel is spun. The potential win will correspond to whatever the chosen arrow lands on. Crazy Time has an RTP of between 94.41% and 96.08%, depending on which bets are placed. On average, the Return to Player sits at ~95.40%.
Produced by Evolution Gaming in partnership with the provider Hasbro, Monopoly Live is another one of the top live game shows available to play. This casino game works in a similar way to Crazy Time, with a large wheel being spun for each round. Players can choose to bet on 1, 2, 5, 10, 2 rolls, or 4 rolls.
The last two options refer to the bonus, with how many rolls will be awarded, should the wheel land on this section. The bet size will be the amount placed on the ‘2 rolls’ or ‘4 rolls’ exclusively, not the total bet. Winning players will be taken to a giant monopoly board, with each property having a different multiplier on it. If players land on a property, this multiplier will be added to the potential win, which is calculated after all rolls have expired. Monopoly Live has an average RTP of 96.23%.
In my humble opinion, Evolution is undoubtedly the best provider when it comes to live casino games. It may come as no surprise to learn that they produced Deal or No Deal, too. This game works in a similar way to the TV show. At the start, players are invited to select a box, before picking other boxes to eliminate.
Between each round, the banker will then offer a set amount for the box picked at the start of the game. It’s up to the player to decide whether or not they accept this offer, which is based on the values left on the board. The Deal or No Deal live casino game has an RTP of ~95.42%.
This is another live game show that features a wheel with various different outcomes that players can bet on. In total, there are six different betting options, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 40. Additionally, the wheel has the potential to land on a 2x or 7x multiplier. While Dream Catcher is immersive and entertaining, I personally prefer Crazy Time, as this game does not feature a unique bonus round.
