Live casino is a type of experience that includes a human dealer on a webcam and bridges the gap between the two disparate worlds of online gaming and its real-life counterpart - without mangling either of them in the process.
The number of casino games included in the live casino category has expanded dramatically over the last few years, but the core offering will be immediately familiar to anybody who has played at a casino before.
The major difference is that a croupier will do all the heavy lifting for you - dealing cards, placing bets, spinning the roulette wheel, or calling the outcome of each game. It gives the computer a rest, in other words.
Top Live Crypto Casino Games
All your favourite live casino games can be played with a live dealer. You may even find some eclectic variants out there that take things to their logical extreme, making roulette faster or adding brand new features to baccarat, for instance.
At Metaspins Casino, we’ve tried to provide a live gameplay experience for everyone, so let’s take a quick look at some of the treasures that you can find on our website.
The game of 21 is renowned for its simplicity as well as its surprising depth, which demands a certain understanding of basic strategy to reduce the house edge. We have live blackjack in several forms on the Metaspins Casino site, including Infinite Blackjack and ONE Blackjack.
While the former game simply allows unlimited players, the latter introduces a new side bet and a chance to go head-to-head with the dealer.
Alongside slots, blackjack is the most-played casino game in Western countries. It’s generally a low-stakes game, but there are always opportunities for daring players to increase the risk and potential reward when they play live casino blackjack.
Be sure that you know when to hit, stand, or surrender before turning up the heat. Budding blackjack pros can benefit from a bit of preparatory book learning (or reading a how-to article).
It’s not easy to see how roulette can be changed or improved. It is, after all, just a metal wheel with numbers on it. However, by adding multipliers (Mega Roulette), bonuses worth 88x each (Gold Bar Roulette), and making it ludicrously fast (XXXtreme Lightning Roulette), we’ve been able to create one of the most varied live roulette sections on the internet.
Of course, the question that needs to be answered is - if roulette is designed to be a straightforward casino experience, why mess with the established formula? Roulette is remarkably accepting of innovation, which is usually enough of a reason for developers to tinker with it.
However, modern casino gamers are used to having options - just look at our slots section - so there’s a demand for new forms of roulette out there.
Much like live roulette, live baccarat benefits from a bit of velocity. We’ve introduced Lightning Baccarat and Speed Baccarat to this end. Fans of the traditional game, the one beloved by super spies like James Bond, might find Baccarat 6 more to their liking. This variant adds the Super 6 side bet, which requires the banker to win with a figure of six. It’s a risky wager but a rewarding one (12:1).
Baccarat is by far the oldest game offered by casinos, with the earliest versions dating back about half a century. It’s a comparison game at heart, just like blackjack and poker, where the hand closest to 9 wins the round. Note that live versions of baccarat tend to have a rule concerning a third card. Both the banker and the player have the chance to make their hand a trio, but this is entirely up to them.
Poker is a game of seemingly infinite potential but it can be a difficult game to crack for newbies. Casino poker, on the other hand, is generally played against the croupier without all the strategy and facial expressions of Texas Hold’em. However, you still need to make the best hand possible with your cards. At Metaspins Casino, you’ll be able to play Side Bet City and Live Casino Hold'em in our live poker section. The former game, Side Bet City, is arguably one of the most unusual casino games out there. Yes, it’s a poker variant, but the included side bets actually come from blackjack.
The difference is that they’re no longer side bets. They’re the focus of the entire game. These extra wagers are generally placed on hands of three, five, or seven cards but pessimistic players can bet on a loss, as well.
Live Game Shows
One of the more recent innovations in live casino gaming, live game shows take their cues from daytime TV, albeit without the gnawing sadness that comes with watching daytime TV. Play a pair of wheel-based game shows - Crazy Time and Sweet Bonanza Candyland - and see if you can win a prize. All our jackpots come in crypto, with no microwaves, tea sets, or speedboats allowed.
Live game shows play out exactly like their TV variants. A glamorous host, often in fancy dress, provides both commentary and advice on the action. The player serves as both the contestant and the audience, which gives the gameplay a much more intimate feeling than a traditional TV studio could ever manage.
The huge cash prizes are retained, though. Sweet Bonanza Candyland has a top prize of x20,000 your stake.
It might surprise you just how many games have been turned into live experiences. There are even a few from as far afield as Asia:
- Andar Bahar Live
- Teen Patti Live
- Live Three Card Poker
Both Andar Bahar and Teen Patti have been gaining momentum with players outside their native India, as casinos seek to give their offering a bit of exclusivity. Andar Bahar is an unusual game about selecting a random joker card and then guessing whether it will appear in one box or another (Andar or Bahar), while Teen Patti is an Indian variant of poker, resembling three-card versions of the game.
How to Play Live Casino with Crypto?
Of course, Metaspins Casino is a crypto casino, so all the deposits and withdrawals you make while playing on our website will be made in one cryptocurrency or another.
Existing users will know there is a mild leaving curve involved with crypto, especially if the user doesn’t have much of a background in technology, so here’s a brief guide to depositing for first-time players.
First, you’ll need to create an account at Metaspins Casino. This is where one advantage of playing in crypto over fiat currencies becomes clear - you won’t need to provide anywhere near as much personal information to play. Second, you’ll need a cryptocurrency wallet, which is a place to store your crypto. These come in several forms, most notably, hardware and software.
As a beginner, a crypto wallet like Mycelium offers a balance between portability and ease of use, as it’s a mobile app. Exodus comes recommended for newcomers, too. Overall, choose a crypto wallet that suits your individual needs rather than go for the most popular or most expensive product out there. Both Mycelium and Exodus are free to use, and the latter supports integration with hardware wallets.
Once you have a Metaspins Casino account and a crypto wallet, all you need to do to get started playing live casino games is:
- Buy some cryptocurrency.
- Make a deposit (top right corner of this webpage).
- Choose a game to play.
That’s all there is to it. One last note to close off this section - Metaspins Casino accepts the following cryptocurrencies: BTC, ETH, USDT, BCH, TRX, ADA, DOGE, and LTC. This means you can play with bitcoin at Metaspins Casino besides other major tokens like Dogecoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Once the funds are available in your casino account, you’re ready to play for real money.
Live Casino Software Providers
There are lots of software developers out there, providing everything from roulette wheels to blackjack games. These include Microgaming, Netent, Play’n GO, Relax Gaming, and Yggdrasil, among others.
In fact, you can find these developers in the other sections of the Metaspins Casino website. As far as live casino gaming is concerned, the most important inventors are Pragmatic Play and Evolution Gaming.
Pragmatic Play is the creator of the Sweet Bonanza slot and around 250 others. This award-winning developer endeavours to create a world of live casino games that is mobile-friendly, innovative, and entertaining. Marketing spiel aside, Pragmatic Play is the collective brains behind several of our live casino lobbies, including Mega Roulette and ONE Blackjack.
While Evolution has a similar identity to Pragmatic Play within live casino gaming, the company is renowned for its innovative bent. Evolution’s live casino products include several unusual takes on roulette and baccarat, including our own XXXtreme Lightning Roulette. This software developer is also the creator of Andar Bahar Live and Teen Patti Live, two games that we mentioned briefly earlier.
|Mega Roulette is a single-zero game, similar to European roulette. The developer outlines the gameplay like this: spin the wheel and cross your fingers for between one and five multipliers. These go to 500x. They only apply to single number or 'straight-up' bets, however.
|While its name might suggest otherwise, Lightning Roulette isn't simply a faster version of the regular card game. No, Evolution has placed between one and five special lightning cards in the 52-card deck. These lightning cards serve the same role as multipliers when they're used as part of a winning hand.
|Now, this is where things get interesting. Players have just ten seconds to place a bet in Speed Baccarat but the rules are otherwise the same as in every other baccarat version. Evolution has also bundled Speed Baccarat with two different viewpoints, namely, 3D and classic (2D).
|Side Bet City
|As mentioned earlier, Side Bet City is a particular kind of madness that combines poker with blackjack. What we didn't tell you is that it's themed around the 80s, an aesthetic known today as vaporwave. The live casino dealer wears a decade-appropriate fashion to suit the overall vibe. Whether that counts as cruelty is up to you.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Can you play live crypto casino online?
Yes. The large range of live casino lobbies available at Metaspins Casino means you can play live casino games like baccarat, roulette, poker, and blackjack with a human croupier. You may also 'sit' at the table with other players, but this depends on the type of game you've joined.

Simply visit the Cashier section in the top right of this website and pick your preferred cryptocurrency to make a deposit with. You'll be able to withdraw from the same section, too.
- How does live casino work?
Live casino is based around a webcam feed of a real human dealer. You’ll be able to place your bets and make other decisions as you normally would via the in-game interface but everything else is handled by the croupier. So, the dealer will show when no more bets are allowed, for instance, and put your chips in the correct place on the gameboard. Overall, live casino is designed to be immersive adding no unnecessary complexity.
