I live casinos games and show games are inspired by “traditional” casino games: thanks to technological innovations and the ever-growing ability of game developers to design software that can provide players with a truly close experience to the “live” one, it is, in fact, possible to take advantage of games realistic and engaging, similar in all respects to those carried out in physical casinos. In the same way, the request to play a digital version of the most famous show games seen on television has led the developers to create online editions in all respects similar to those seen on the small screen. The transition from “flesh and blood” edition to digital version was, therefore, spontaneous and natural. With the constant improvement of streaming technologies, live casino games have slowly come to the same level as traditional ones. Therefore, some of the most famous television programs have their digital counterparts to play live with prepared and engaging presenters, just like the dealers who deal with live casino games. The most famous? The version of the game inspired by the famous “parcel game” called Deal or no Deal, the equivalent of the wheel of fortune called Dream Catcher and, finally, a live version of the Monopoly even more exciting than the classic board game.
