If you have been following our live casino reviews section, then you may have noticed one of the newest additions to our collection is Stake live casino. Just days after the casino caught our attention and our team here at Live Casino Central felt it was well worthy of a review, Pragmatic Play Live has made an announcement that it has partnered with the operator Medium Rare N.V. to add a dedicated 12-table live casino studio, especially for its Stake live casino brand.
The casino currently runs under the ever-improving Curacao licensing authority and combines fiat currency gambling with cryptocurrency—both of which Pragmatic Play’s live gaming and video slot platforms support. Now members, whether playing via EUR, CAD, USD, NZD, INR, NZD, or ZAR fiat currencies ‘or’ BTC, BCH, LTC, TRX, DOGE, XRP, EOS, or ETH cryptos will be able to access Stake Casino branded tables dedicated to members of the casino only.
If you are not overly familiar with how live casino platforms operate, the norm is for multiple live casinos to connect to the same studio and games. This is known as the ‘shared’ live casino gaming model. Shared solutions work brilliantly and have been in operation for many years. However, some table games not using unlimited technology can become crowded during peak hours, for example, popular 7-seat blackjack games. This often causes queues as players from multiple casinos all over the globe are all waiting to play at the same table.
Pragmatic Play Live’s dedicated online casino partnership with Stake casino changes this. Those 7-seat Blackjack table tables inside the Stake live casino studio area will only be able to Stake Casino members, and thus there will rarely, if ever, be any queuing. Other table games that can also come with limited seats include baccarat, another table game that will become part of the Pragmatic Play Live and Stake Casino dedicated live casino studio.
Planned Stake Casino Dedicated Titles: The Stake Casino live studio space will include 10 live blackjack tables, 1 Roulette title, and a speed baccarat live table game. The latter 2 games will use unlimited technology, while casino members will still also have access to the flurry of shared live tables games and game shows from Pragmatic Play and other live dealer software brands Evolution and Playtech.
The Advantages of Dedicated Roulette & Baccarat Using Unlimited Tech
Unlimited tech means that a table game can accommodate an unlimited number of players, and Pragmatic Play Live casino software is somewhat of a specialist in developing their version of this style of innovative solution. Something a 7-seat Blackjack table clearly cannot achieve, hence there are 10 dedicated live blackjack tables designated for the Stake Casino live studio. But the Live Speed Baccarat and Live Roulette tables come with unlimited technology so why create dedicated versions?
There are several reasons. Firstly, some brands would just prefer to have a branded live version of the most popular live casino game titles, which roulette is most certainly one of them and baccarat is not far off in terms of popularity.
Another reason is for the live croupier and dealer chat functionalities. When there are thousands of players on a shared live roulette table, the community chat for these games is constant. It’s tough for the game host to answer everyone. As such, Stake Casino using a dedicated version of these games will mean fewer players, which gives the croupiers and dealers more of a chance to verbally interact with players typing on the community chat. The double bonus for the casino here is a more personal experience for players and one that is branded with the Stake Casino brand colours and logo.
Stake Co-founder, Edward Craven, added: “As a leading supplier in the Live Casino space, Pragmatic Play’s commitment to ensuring our every need is met was a key element in powering this deal. Its dedicated studios have performed well with major brands in regulated markets all over the world, and this is an important step forward for us. We look forward to it going live and really highlighting the unique capabilities of our brand.” A statement made on the Stake Casino and Pragmatic Play news report.
