The emergence of live games and lucky number games

If you are a regular online bettor, you would have noticed more and more South African betting sites adding live games. What are live games you may ask. Game providers such as Evolution, BetGames, Jika Sports, Global Bet and Ezugi are some of the more popular names.

You can now place bets online on virtual horse racing, motor racing or greyhound races. If you are a fan of Texas Hold’Em poker, why not try your luck on Bet on Poker or 6+Poker by BetGames.

Ezugi, a subsidiary of Evolution Gaming. recently entered the South African market with their live dealer games specifically developed for its Indian customers. This includes the popular Andar Bahar card game as well as poker variations Bet on Teen Patti and Teen Patti.

There is currently no bigger name in the online gaming marketing for live dealer content than Evolution. Evolution live dealer content is rated as one of the best in the world and South African punters can now legally play some of these games.

Apart from standard roulette and blackjack titles, they are well known for their Game Show games. If you enjoy Dice, Wheel of Fortune or Spin and Win type games, look no further. Titles such as Dream Catcher have been exciting players for years. The recently added Monopoly Live game is probably one our favourite live dealer games and definitely one to try.

Be sure to read our honest reviews of all live dealer and lucky number style games. We also add recommendations of licensed operators you can play the games with.
