Playtech moves Live Casino Game Play to new Riga Studio

Live casino games are smooth sailing at Playtech’s new Riga studio.

This week, Playtech began migrating more live casino players over to the new studio in Riga. The company shut down most of its common tables at the old studio, and began opening up new ones at the bigger live casino.

Playtech's new Riga Studio launches new live casino games

Earlier this year, Playtech was proud to announce the completion of the largest live casino studio in the world. It’s located in Riga’s Old Town, not too far from the company’s original Latvian studio. This one, however, is much larger, and boasts much more affluent tables and décor.

Following its grand opening, Playtech launched a small series of high-profile Grand/Royale table games. The majority of their customers, however, were still streaming common tables from the old studio. Now, as that building prepares to close, a throng of new live dealer table games are opening at the Riga location.

New Live Casino Games at Playtech

Playtech introduced several new live blackjack tables already. The first two are known as Lounge Blackjack 1 and Lounge Blackjack 2. No doubt, more lounge blackjack tables will be opening in the near future.

As the name implies, this table is able to accommodate an unlimited number of players via the ‘bet behind‘ option. All players, whether they’re directly participating or not, can bet on up to 5 player hands, not jut their own.

The Neptune and Cupid live baccarat tables were closed down from the old studio, replaced by a new, green-felted table in Riga. This table has not yet been named. Once more baccarat tables open, titles will surely be applied.

Only one common live roulette table was launched, but its design accommodates an unlimited number of players. It’s called Lounge Roulette, and is—in my opinion—far better than the previous live dealer roulette option. It features a wide screen layout, captured by two different camera angles for optimum visuals.

“Largest Live Customer Migration Ever Seen”

Last month, following the successful launch of the new studio’s premier and exclusive gaming tables, Playtech COO Simon Akad extolled the company’s successful implementation of a an extraordinarily broad vision.

“Playtech demonstrates its absolute commitment to delivering the best Live Casino experience and this project is significant testimony to it,” said Akad. “From making one of our largest ever investments and redeveloping this site into the world’s largest Live Casino studio, to completing the largest Live customer migration ever seen, it’s been an exhilarating, non-stop journey and there is much more to come.”

Playtech’s premier tables have been live for most of the year at the new studio. They started by launching Grand and Royale versions of blackjack, baccarat and roulette in March. That was followed by the introduction of private, bespoke tables for operators like Sky and Paddy Power Betfair.

14 Years of Live Casino Game Play

The company soft-launched its first live dealer studio in 2003 in Manila, Philippines. The original Latvian studio opened in 2009, replaced by the new Riga studio in March 2017. Another site was also opened in Romania this year.

The new live casino games that launched this week are accessible to the masses, available now on all Playtech-powered live casinos.
