Live casino games are so popular that players all over the world are keen to join up and participate. That, of course, means the default format of always offering games in English is no longer a viable commercial model and the major online casinos offering live games are now starting to expand the range of languages on offer from their croupiers.
At the forefront of this initiative are the sportsbook operators, who attract large levels of business and high-staking players. They appeal to large number of players all over the world, as well as expats and foreign language speakers in their home countries, and with large markets to be tapped in places like Russian and China it’s not surprising that their respective languages are spoken by live casino dealers.
Also on offer are tables hosted by dealers speaking German, Dutch, Swedish and other Northern European languages, though the Mandarin-speaking rooms are by far and away the most markedly different, featuring Asian-style décor and outfits for the dealers.
Multi-language live rooms are a very different proposition to virtual casinos that offer the same facility. Text associated with virtual games needs to be translated once and posted online, whereas a native Chinese speaker needs paying constantly, so these rooms are not cheap to run. That’s why only the large casinos offer them, so if you want to play at a casino that’s aimed at one market with live rooms that offer additional language support then large operations like Ladbrokes Casino, William Hill Casino and Paddy Power Casino are a great place to start.
