Global Live Casino Review

Since 2002, this online live dealer site in recognised as one of the best live casinos around...

9.3 / 10


In business since early 2002, Global Live Casino is a java based live casinos site with that rare commodity - genuine recognition from customers as being one of the best live casinos out there.


A Truly Unique Experience
Brought to you from the live casino floor of the Fitzwilliam Casino in the heart of Dublin, Global Live Casino is probably as close to a real casino as you are going to get. As you log into the java based live casinos site, you ready yourself for clicks of chips, constant background chatter and the blarney from the dealers themselves – add the obvious webcam experience and you could be sitting in the Emerald itself.

Instant Play
Using the best in live casinos software from the guys at Distance gaming. Developed by Vuetec Software Ltd, the live casinos games are all java based, which means no messing about with huge downloads for bit-part casino games. Great for the casino player, even better no doubt for Global Live Casino itself – they even cater for Mac users.

Seeing Is Believing
Of course – it is the webcam that makes this site. Whether you are playing live blackjack, live roulette or even casino style live Texas Hold ‘Em, you never get the feeling of being cheated, nor are you looking for any sleight of hand trick that could bust your hand. Global Live Casino has also done away with the ubiquitous oversized cards and scantily clad Far Eastern girls with oversized egos. It all adds to the experience. One criticism here would be that at the time of going to press, it was hard for this Casino Geezer to find out the payout rates for the games – this would be the cherry on the cake.

Truly International
As you’d expect these days, Global Live Casino have catered for a variety of languages, including French (don’t tell anyone across la manche!) as well as German and Spanish. You can chat with the dealers as well, in your language and of course Customer Service follows suit – and as all Casino geezer fans know, Customer Service is my thing.

Is Help On Hand?
It is – but if this were a school report, then it is fair to say that it ‘could do better’. To be fair, the website is very clear – lots of email addresses specific to the problem or issue you may have. Phone numbers clearly quoted and even postal addresses if you need to send snail mail. But at the time of going to press, emails were answered within 48 hours – which really guys, is a bit slow for this day and age.

Show Me The Money
Last, but not least – the bonuses. As you’d expect, you can really chow down on Global Live Casinos bonuses – whether it is the 100% Sign-Up bonus of up to $150 FREE (play through of x37 – normal). Or whether it is the very simple, clear and concise Deposit Bonus – deposit $300 or less – get 10% on top (play through of x6 – nice). Deposit $301 or more, let’s make that 15% (play through of x6 – fair enough). Add to that another bullseye if you have any mates – everyone’s a winner.

Casino Geezer's Final Verdict...

As Live Casinos go, this has to be on your shortlist – none of that horrible birds and boobs and play your cards right sized playing cards – just real dealers, in a real casino, with webcams that don’t leave you in doubt that anything dodgy is going on at all. Add to that a decent bonus system and instant play and you have a great live casinos product.

Now if they could just tighten up the Customer Service… ;o)
