    So it would seem while I was playing at 2 different casinos this afternoon. I had noticed that the tables that were offered using the same set of dealers and players as at another casino.

    Like I literally busted out at once casino, made a deposit at another casino. A few minutes later I was back on the live tables and low and behold I noticed that dealer and player I was playing with was the same exact one as at another casino. Same exact shoe and everything.

    So is it commons for casinos to at times share live tables with other casinos. I suppose what killed me the most about the transition. Was at the one casino the bet limits for that table were set rather low. Then at the other casino it was considered a more high roller table. So that would mean that even though one casino views the table as there high roller table. The other casino sees it as the dollar a bet table. Which then to makes it rather unfair to the high roller. Who's looking to only play with some people playing some decent amount of cash. Versus being mixed in with other casinos low rollers.

    Which then also leads me to possibly believe if it's not common for live table dealer to be shared at different casino properties and groups. Then there might be more than meets the eye regarding who really owns each of the 2 casinos.

    Most casinos who offer live dealers use software from one of several providers: Playtech, Evolution, MediaLive etc. These software companies have their own studios and in some instances they will brand specifically for a casino and in others they share. I'll get someone who is more knowledgable to look at this thread for you and who can probably provide more detail.:thumbsup:

    As Simmo gave me a nudge, I'll assume it's me :)

    Simmo is correct in his summary. Most, not all, but most online casinos take their Live casino solutions from companies that specialise in providing that service. The companies will have their own dealing studios or provide technology to take feeds from real land based casinos. The online casino often have a choice on what service to take and indeed what games. The base service is normally a feed from one of the general studio tables. the online casino can often choose their own bet limits and in the case of some games "extras", like the addition of side bets in Blackjack. The table is shared with other like minded online casinos. So if you switch casino and they use the same supplier you'll likely end up at the same table.

    Now the next level of service up is a dedicated table, one that only that online casinos players will be allowed to play at. It is normally branded for the casino and the dealer is normally dedicated to that client. This allows the online casino to offer its players on table promotions, bonuses etc that it can't offer on a shared table. Chat between players is normally allowed whereas on a generic table it's often masked and you can only chat with the dealer. The dedicated table is normally located in a separate area of the studio, or if they are a big customer with loads of tables they might even have their own area dedicated to them.

    Some suppliers are savy to the fact that high rollers like to play with other high rollers, so if you use Playtech or Evolution software you will see blackjack tables for instance in different colours. Red normally denotes higher stakes, but this isn't always the case, you need to check it out in the lobby.

    However some online casinos only use their own software, dealers and studios. When I say Studio it could be a small office with one camera, a table, a green screen behind and a dealer with the table. There will be a small TV screen so the dealer can see who is playing and to keep a check on whether the cards are being scanned or the ball is being registered correctly.

    I have a times wanted to play more than one seat at blackjack but because of restrictions I've not been able, so I have had two sessions at different casinos running and played one seat at one a and one at the other but both at the same table. Makes for a fun evening!

    I've played live casino at over 100 online casinos and have used software from over 18 different suppliers. In addition there are also loads more Asian based providers that I've not been able to play yet. They take the lead in some areas of technology to the point where some of them have robots that deals the cards.

    Live casino is big business now and in my opinion is the only way to go if you want to play table games online, although some will disagree.

    Thank you for your reply, it made me more curious than anything.

    I guess I always assumed, different casino, different tables. Meaning that each table at that casino, was only proprietary to that group or at least that casino.

    So that's what had me confused.
