Although the heyday of television game shows may have passed a few decades ago, the era of internet casinos is only getting begun. Live casino game shows have exploded in popularity over the past few years, and all signs point to this trend continuing.
This new subgenre of casino games has quickly become popular, and the explanation is straightforward. Live casino game shows give everyone a fair shot at winning, but TV game shows were designed for an audience of spectators and only a select few ever won rewards.
In this piece, we’ll introduce you to several of the most exciting and rewarding Live Casino game show games now available.
Wrapped in a Dream
One of the first games of its kind, Dream Catcher is often credited with launching the entire ‘game show’ subgenre of online casinos. The Live Casino experts at Evolution Gaming debuted this game in 2017, and it was an instant smash.
The main attraction of Dream Catcher is a vertical wheel comprised of 54 different colored segments. There are 52 segments that display a single digit (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, or 40) and 2 that display a multiplier (2x or 7x). Here, your goal is to place a wager on the numbered section of the wheel that you think the arrow at the top will land on during the subsequent spin.
After a wager is made and the wheel is spun, the outcome is revealed. You win your bet doubled by the number displayed if the segment is one on which you have placed a wager. In the event that the segment displays a multiplier, all prizes on the wheel will be increased by that amount, and the wheel will be spun once again. By the time the winning segment is chosen, the prizes could be far more substantial than they were on the initial spin.
It’s easy to see why Dream Catcher is such a fan-favorite at the Live Casino: the studio is fantastic, the hosts are fun, and there are many of opportunities to win big.
This Week on Deal or No Deal
The game show Deal or No Deal has been extremely popular in recent years in several nations, including Canada. You, the player, take center stage in Evolution Gaming’s Live Casino adaptation.
At the outset, you’ll be presented with a spinning wheel; align three golden rings to open a bank vault and access the game proper. There, you’ll find 16 different prize boxes from which you can choose to receive a boost. Then an empty briefcase and a telephone will be placed in front of you on a desk. Your prize is in the briefcase.
From there, the format is the same as the television show. Prizes will be unveiled one by one as 15 briefcases are opened in the studio. At that point, the winner of that award will be disqualified. The Banker will periodically give you a call to give you an offer on the briefcase on the desk. You can either accept the offer and close the deal or continue playing for a higher price. You will be offered the choice to trade briefcases with the last one in the background, but if you pass on it you will be awarded whatever is in your initial briefcase.
In the year 2020, Crazy Time was launched by Evolution Gaming. Featuring a gaming wheel similar to the one that became so popular in Dream Catcher, as well as various distinct side games, this game soon attracted the public’s curiosity.
There are 54 facets of the wheel at play here. 45 of them have prizes worth $1, $2, $50, or $10. Each of the other 4 phases is labeled with a different game’s name: Coin Flip, Cash Hunt, Pachinko, and Crazy Time.
Spin the wheel and place your bets on any combination of reward value and game label. When the wheel finishes spinning, if the value you bet on is what is displayed, you win. You will take part in the associated side game if the label of a game on which you have placed a wager is drawn. The 64-segment wheel in Crazy Time is the highlight of the game and is responsible for sending players’ wins to ludicrous heights.
Like many games by Evolution Gaming, this one has a beautiful presentation. The presenters of each side game create enough of an atmosphere for onlookers to appreciate the action even if they aren’t participating in the game themselves.
Even well-known board games might benefit from the adaptability of the newer genre of game show offers at Live Casinos. A fantastic illustration of this is Monopoly Live. This 2019 release from Evolution Gaming merges the best features of Dream Catcher with those of the classic Monopoly board game from Hasbro.
The game revolves around a vertical wheel with 54 segments. Of those segments, 48 have numbers (1, 2, 5, or 10) printed on them, while the remaining 6 have labels reading “Chance,” “2 Rolls,” and “4 Rolls.” You’ll need to place bets on which of the portions you think will be highlighted as the winner when the wheel stops spinning.
If your bet on a numbered segment is successful, your payout will be equal to the number of your wager times your original wager. You can play the Monopoly Live 3D Bonus Game if your stake on the 2 Rolls or 4 Rolls segment wins. To get started, you’ll get two or four rolls of the dice, depending on how many doubles you roll. Simply throw the dice to send Mr. Monopoly zipping around a beautifully generated 3D board in search of money and other prizes.
