Extreme Live Roulette
Extreme’s Classic Live Roulette is a European single-zero variant with a house edge of 2.7%. The dealer positioned behind the wheel seems to be sitting in a secluded corner of an empty casino floor, which is not necessarily the best way to replicate land-based casino environment . Bottom part of the screen is where you’ll find computer-generated betting table on which to place bets using chips placed underneath. Discreet buttons on the left-hand side are used to switch to full screen mode, turn video and audio on and off, pay a quick visit to the cashier, double-check game rules, and browse through your own gaming history. This is also where you’ll find a shortcut to the Lobby where you can switch to an alternative game.
Golden Ball Roulette seems to have been created mainly for the benefit of high-rollers, seeing that the game rewards the highest betting player every 20 spins. Up to 8 player’s cumulative bets are calculated and displayed on the leaderboard, and the one with the highest total gets a chance to “spin the ball” and win one of the prizes. Generous video feed displays the dealer and a complete Roulette table set in front of a window which offers a view of London. Bets are place using a digital image of the betting table which occupies the lower half of the screen. The Camera view button toggles between game views, allowing the player to choose either Classic or 3D view.
Live Reel Roulette incorporates side bets based on some of the most popular slot games from the provider’s parent company Novomatic. Variations include Book of Ra, Sizzling Hot, Lucky Lady’s Charm, Dolphin’s Pearl and Reel King. Once again, the game is not highly realistic as the video shows only the dealer and the wheel; all other elements are computer-generated. One-reel slot is spinning to the right of the croupier, and players that have placed bets on the winning symbol are paid at the corresponding odds – up to 80:1.
Club Roulette is a variant supposed to enhance the social element of the game. Players are encouraged to choose an avatar which will represent them at the table, and to communicate with one another. What you may actually experience is the voice of the croupier at the neighbouring table overpowering that of your own dealer. The game is visually superior to the classic variant, with a more attractive background and its host positioned to the left of the table.
Live Roulette betting limits vary by operator; at Mr Green Casino both Classic and Golden Ball Roulette except stakes ranging from €1 to €10,000, while Reel Roulette variants allow bets of €0.50 minimum and €5,000 maximum.
Extreme Live Blackjack
Extreme Blackjack sits up to 7 players simultaneously but numerous others can join in by betting behind. A single participant can also choose to occupy more than one seat, providing they are available. The game is played with eight decks, the dealer stands on soft 17 and peaks at their hole card for Blackjack. Players can split pairs, double down on all except split hands, and take Insurance against the dealer’s Ace. Surrender is not an option. One can, however, exploit Perfect Pairs (Mixed, Colour or Suited) and 21+3 side bets and potentially celebrate payouts as high as 100:1 (Suited Trips).
The table and the dealer take up the entire screen, thus making one feel almost as if sitting in a physical casino. Graphic overlays have been made as unobtrusive as possible to support this illusion. Betting limits and odds are displayed on the left, while the Chat box on the right-hand side allows participants to interact with the dealer and other players.
Just above it you’ll see a clock showing you how much time you’ve got to make a decision. The game plays fast thanks to short betting time of only about 10 seconds. High-rollers are offered to take a seat at a VIP Blackjack table with higher betting limits. At Mr Green, one can play Live Blackjack for a minimum of €5 and a maximum of €2,000 per round.
Extreme Live Baccarat
Extreme Live Baccarat comes in several variants, namely Classic, VIP and Super 6. The latter is a no-commission game which pays even money on Banker wins but will only deliver half of the player’s stake if the Banker triumphs with the score of 6. One can take advantage of several side bets, such as Big / Small, Player Pair and Banker Pair.
Recent results are presented via an on-screen scorecard and statistics of winning hands and side bets. Bets made by other players are displayed on the right side of the screen. Visually, Live Baccarat looks a lot like Extreme’s Live Blackjack. You’ll have the impression of actually sitting at the table across from the dealer, especially if you take advantage of the full-screen mode. Betting limits at Mr Green range from €1 to €1,000.
