AllBet Gaming Live Dealer Games & Casinos Reviewed
About The Company
AllBet Gaming is a relatively new Asian developer, established as recently as 2014. The company has initially focused on live casino platform and Asian markets, though the team didn’t waste time making their games accessible to European players as well.
To that end, on top of a license issued by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), they also applied for and have been granted those from the UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority.
The company’s vision has always been about coming up with new ideas, and while they don’t (as yet) provide live dealer games nobody else offers, they do try to add something unique to each – such as multi-play function allowing one to monitor up to 12 score cards and display 4, 8, 16 or 32 tables on the screen.
Games Offered By AllBet Gaming
AllBet live studio is located at in Makati, Philippines, and covers an area of about 1,500 square meters. There are four distinct game halls, namely Dragon, Multi-play, VIP and BidMe Hall, each offering special features and functions designed to meet the diverse needs of their clients.
The multi-table environment, as usually, adds to the authenticity of the gaming experience. Asian developers generally seem keen on populating their lobbies with as much information as possible, and AllBet is no exception.
Along with the dealer’s name / picture and detailed statistics, you’ll see the number of players currently betting on each of the tables, value of chips in play, and an indicator of the stage the game is in, including a timer showing how much time remains for placing bets.
There’s also a button which offers one to choose a particular seat at any of the featured tables. Smooth Asian tune starts playing as soon as you enter the Lobby and continues once you join the game. There are 8 different tunes to pick from, the volume of which can be turned up and down or muted altogether.
Pre-recorded voice can be manipulated in the same way, though given that the dealers are silent, you may want to keep it switched on.
AllBet Live Baccarat
Baccarat is a game especially popular among Asian gamblers, which is why AllBet has invested a lot of efforts into making their offering different to everybody else’s. Both standard and no-commission Live Baccarat use 8 decks and feature several side bets, namely Player and Banker Pair (11:1), Small and Big. As cards are being drawn, their digital images will appear in the top left corner, thus making them perfectly visible.
Very prominent visual counter has been added to make sure you know when to finish placing bets. Live feed takes up most of the screen, with the usual five roadmaps below. On the right you’ll find a discreet menu offering access to game rules, table limits, list of tunes, and a quick way to get in touch with support agents.
Game menu at the bottom left corner opens an overview we’ve not seen before, with the ranking of winnings and win rates, list of popular tables in terms of number of players playing, and those recommended based on successive Banker/Player and Big/Small outcomes.
At Dafabet you can bet with a minimum of €5 and a maximum of €500. The highest RTP for this game is 98.94%. If you like your games to play fast, you’ll probably appreciate 15-second Quick Baccarat (15 seconds for placing bets instead of 25), and if you’re a high-roller, you should head straight to the VIP section. VIP Baccarat comes with a few special rules. If you use “Reserve” mode to enter a game, you’ll be offered to open cards before the system does it automatically.
The rounds you don’t wish to play can be skipped up to five times in a row. You’ll be able to ask for a dealer change, and apply for shuffle after the current shoe has been open for more than 30 rounds.
BidMe Baccarat also features some special rules related to the manual reveal of the cards. One can reveal the Banker’s card when they bet bigger amounts on Banker than other players, Player’s card when their stake placed on the Player is higher than anybody else’s, and when they are the first to place a bet in case of stakes of the same size.
AllBet Live Dragon Tiger
Though Asian developers usually describe Dragon Tiger as a Poker game, we’d say it’s far more similar to Baccarat. The only major difference is that only one card is dealt to each side. The game uses 6 decks and offers only the basic bets – Dragon and Tiger paying even money, and Tie which pays 8:1. The highest RTP is 96.30%.
AllBet Live Sic Bo
Live Sic Bo is a game played with 3 dice shaken in a machine-operated glass container. The goal is to try to guess the outcome and there are numerous related betting options to choose from. The top payout of 150:1 is delivered by specific triples, which seems to be standard in Live Sic Bo games.
Layout is almost identical to that of Live Baccarat, except for history panel which displays an overview of Odd/Even outcomes, sums, and individual dice numbers.
AllBet Live Roulette
Live Roulette is a European style single zero game. Video feed shows the dealer standing next to the physical wheel, and a zoom button lets you get a closer look of the spinning action whenever you choose to.
Digital betting table is displayed on the right, and one can also use the racetrack below to place French bets such as the third cylinder, neighbours of zero, and so on. Detailed history at the very bottom shows the results of last 50 rounds, as well as an overview of Red / Black, Big / Small, Dozen / Column, and Odd /Even outcomes – more than enough to help you make an informed decision (for those believing there’s more to luck in winning in a Roulette game).
AllBet’s Live Roulette at Dafabet features betting limits of €1 to €10 for Straight bets, and €5 to €500 for even money bets.
There’s no telling which languages the dealers are capable of speaking. They will remain silent throughout the game, the only talking done by a pre-recorded female voice which warns you when it’s time to place bets and when you can no longer do so. All in-game information is provided in English and there doesn’t seem to be an option to choose another language – at least for now.
AllBet’s live casino solution supports both desktop and mobile play. One can play only in portrait mode, which seems to be typical for mobile live games developed by Asian providers. Video feed takes over the top half of the screen, while computer-generated betting section moves to the bottom. Necessary modifications have been made to enable easy navigation on smaller screens.
The company claims to be employing more than 400 dealers looking after the needs of “basic punters” as well as VIPs, and we’re thinking it must have taken time and manpower to train them all. Since these charming ladies are not talking, the only way to make you feel welcome is to smile, and you’ll see them do that a lot.
Competitive Advantages and Points of Difference
Despite being quite young, AllBet Gaming managed to become one of Asia’s leading Live Casino providers. They’ve built their portfolio with high-quality games guaranteed to appeal to their targeted markets, and have invested an extra effort to offer more features and functions than established competitors.
How well they’ll rate in the European market, remains to be seen.
The European gaming community will likely miss more common games such as Blackjack and Poker, and might frown on being offered only one language. Additionally, they might prefer an interactive experience enabled by live chat as well as the talking dealers, neither of which AllBet currently provides.
