Why Play Live Casino Games
With the fantastic collection of casino games available to play at 21.co.uk growing every single day, it begs the question of why our players should focus their attention on our live casino games. That is a question easily answered by any players who have previously experienced these games. There are many benefits of playing live casino games, such as:
Interactive Gaming with Live Dealers
Live casino games provide some of the most authentic experiences in online casino gaming and they manage this with live dealers. Players can play their favourite table games in real-time with dealers, just like in Las Vegas casinos! This also gives players the option to observe the actions of dealers and other players while they follow the game. Our dealers are all trained professionals who will ensure that your game is as authentic as possible.
No Time Restraints
Our live casino is available 24/7. This means that our players can enjoy our casino games library anywhere in the United Kingdom at any time of day or night. Playing these games has never been easier; as you can play with an authentic experience without travelling to your local casino. These games can be played with a stable internet connection using your smartphone or tablet, so whether you're waiting for a friend or simply taking in some sunshine, you can play our games whenever you want.
As casino gaming goes, the influx of new technology has affected all areas of gaming. However, one area that has seen significant improvements is live casino. New technology allows players to live stream multiple forms of media, particularly live casino games with live dealers and gameplay combining to provide a truly unique experience. Modernised technology provides better gameplay and graphics and gives players additional layers of protection for their accounts with live chat features and safer gambling tools.
Live Casino Games
Due to the fantastic variety of games on the 21.co.uk Live Casino, our Live Casino Games are some of the most popular on-site. Since the start of 2021, over 22% of our players have come from live casino games with Blaze Roulette being our most popular game with a whopping 6.6% of players! If you're looking to play any of the live casino games we have and you're new to 21.co.uk head over to our casino promotions page where you could land yourself a £5 bonus to play on selected live casino games when you deposit and stake £50.
Online Roulette is one of the top casino games in the world; there are multiple different versions from several different countries. European and American Roulette are the two most popular versions of the game, but the French version is also incredibly common in land casinos. In this game, players decide where they think the ball will land on the spinning wheel to win.
There are 14 different versions of this game available to play on 21.co.uk.
Similar to Online Roulette, this is one of the top casino games in the world. However, it is a much more linear game where the intention is to beat the dealer in getting as close to 21 as possible.
There are six different versions of Blackjack available on 21.co.uk.
Roulette and Blackjack may be the two most popular games to play, but Poker is arguably the game that is in the public eye the most. With poker tournaments held worldwide and regularly televised on late-night television, many players have seen massive wins without duplicating them themselves. There are multiple varieties of Poker that you can play in casinos; the variants available at 21.co.uk are: Three Card Poker, Texas Hold'Em Poker and Caribbean Stud Poker
There are dozens of other games styles available at 21.co.uk, which you can read more about below. These include the likes of Gameshows, Dice, Baccarat, Monopoly and more!
Live Casino Game Shows
We truly believe that casino game shows will play a huge role in Live Casino gaming's future. They have already begun cementing their position with games such as Dream Catcher Live. If you're a big fan of TV game shows or board games, then our live game show selection will be right up your street. Games are presented by friendly, professional and highly skilled hosts around the clock, meaning you can get involved at a time. Play in real-time with all the excitement of the game show, without the pressure of the studio audience, in games such as Monopoly Live and Deal or No Deal Live. If you've never tried a live game show before, don't worry - you'll find everything you need to know to get started on the game information pages.
Live Casino Baccarat
The game you'll find James Bond playing in several bond movies is Baccarat, a world-renowned game that entirely relies on chance. Players will have 2 or 3 cards to beat the dealer's score, and the winning hand will be the one with the higher score. This game has a legacy for being a high-roller casino game; however, here at 21.co.uk, you can play with much lower stakes.
If you're looking to play Live Baccarat, then we recommend checking out the Lightning Baccarat variant, which provides the potential for massive wins even in low stake games.
Live Casino Dice
The fantastic game of Dice is one of our favourites here at 21.co.uk; why? It is undoubtedly the most straightforward game that our players can play but is still a delightful game. The game aims to guess what the total number of the three dice will be to win. Simple, right?
If you're looking to play Dice on 21.co.uk, then we recommend the Lightning Dice game as it provides players with massive win potential with every throw of the dice.
Best Live Casino Games
21.co.uk is the home of many live casino games. However, choosing the game that best suits your playing style is challenging. That’s why we have taken all the best games in our live casino and split them into categories. In the section below, you’ll find our best games in all of our categories, whether that would be Blackjack, Roulette, Poker or game shows.
Our favourite Roulette game is the popular Blaze Roulette, which is featured on the 21.co.uk Live Casino Show. This game features the typical elements of a classic Roulette game but also has all the statistics of the game and has multiple viewpoints. This means that players can find the hot & cold numbers from the last 100 spins, which means if you’re a player that bases their games on statistics, you’ll particularly enjoy this feature.
On the Blackjack side of things, we have the fantastic Free Bet Blackjack, which introduces some innovative features to a standard Blackjack game, such as Double Down and Split Free Bets, which gives you the ability to double down or split with your initial bet. There is also a Six Card Charlie feature where, if you have six cards that total 21, you will be guaranteed the win even if the dealer has a Blackjack.
If Poker is more your style, we recommend checking out the fantastic Caribbean Stud Poker, a live Poker game where players only play against the dealer, meaning that what other players do is irrelevant. There are also two bonus sections of the game, the first of which is 5+1 side bet which combines the player’s five cards with the dealer’s hole card. The objective is to get three of a kind or better to win the side bet. The second is Jackpots; there is a progressive jackpot available when you win a side bet and win with a Royal Flush. The second is a fixed jackpot where you win with a side bet with three of a kind of better.
Finally, we have the live casino game shows. This game style is the backbone of live casino gaming as they introduce a brand new style of gameplay that has innovative features that you won’t find in other games. One of our favourites is Live Mega Ball Bingo, which brings the brilliant bingo style to 21.co.uk.

Every online casino game has its own set of rules.
