The B2B casino software firm BetGames was founded in January 2012 in Vilnius, Lithuania. It quickly grew into a big organization with over 100 personnel serving gamblers in 40+ countries. The privately-owned company is run by several co-CEOs including Andreas Koberl (main CEO), Mr. Vytautas Kacerauskas, Mr. Saulius Cereska, who is also the CFO, and Mrs. Aiste Garneviciene, the current COO. They introduced live streaming in 2015, and in 2021, the total revenue hit $6 Million.
A strong support system from investors with over 50 years' experience in the lottery industry, as well as extensive experience held by CEOs in the gaming industry, has contributed greatly. In the same month of its founding, BetGames launched its first lotto-style game, Lucky 7, one of the eleven live dealer games on the platform. Other titles are variants of the Dice and Lucky games. Furthermore, they have established relationships with reputable companies like Betsson and SoftGamings.
Licensing and Languages
BetGames holds licenses from the government of Curacao and the UK Gambling Commission, both of which were granted in 2015. It also acquired licenses from Latvia and Lithuania Gambling Commissions in 2016. The developer is working to acquire Colombian, Greek, and Swedish licenses. All BetGames live games are hosted in English but there is an option to switch the user interface to 30 other linguistic choices.

Top casino sites powered by BetGames are streamed live from Lithuania and Malta studios. Live studios in the Baltic country Lithuania are situated in the capital city, Vilnius, from where professional English-speaking dealers present games. This was the very first casino studio facility of the company where presenters are carefully selected.
For now, there are more than 60 seasoned and elegant dealers to ensure that all gaming sessions are smooth and exciting. From the standard live casino games to specialty products, players can expect nothing short of professionalism from the dealers. They are charming, open-minded, and always move at the bettors’ pace. Because most of the presenters are from the Soviet region, they are not only fluent in English but Russian as well.
Like many live casino software providers, BetGames chose Lithuania as a studio location because it has solid brick-and-mortar casino support from where many dealers derive skills and experience. Several specialty games and other classic casino live table games are streamed live from the Lithuanian studio. There's a flair to their style that makes them stand out in live casinos.
How BetGames Live Dealer Studios Work
By combining the best of the land-based establishments with modern live stream technology, the Maltese and Lithuanian studios offer a classy casino setup. Players enjoy similar HD streams, UI, and betting options from real casino locations. It is never a dull moment with smart user controls, live chats, and dealer tips.
A remarkable aspect of BetGames studios is that they are spacious with multiple floors featuring both general play areas and specialty game tables. The security is tight a the studio, whereby no phones or cameras from outsiders are permitted inside the floors. A majestic Mission Control Room is set to monitor the gameplay and dealer performance. It works through sophisticated tools to seize every moment.
Games at BetGames live platforms run the same way as land-based gambling activities. There is no automation whatsoever and everything showing on the screen is manual and is happening in real-time. The software is used only to monitor and record actions and transmit them to playing interfaces. However, this monitoring is far more extensive than in brick-and-mortar houses.
The ultramodern platform of BetGames allows users to play multiple games simultaneously on one screen. Non-stop gameplay is possible with some games. The risk levels are spread in a way that they can suit both the riskiest and cautious punters, i.e., ranging from 10% of the wager to 2000 times for higher bets. Even though BetGames has developed 11 games, the platform hosts thousands of other titles from 100+ casino developers thanks to SoftGaming’s API integration. The 11 casino games can be classified into card games (4), lottery-style games (3), and exclusive/unusual titles (4). They stream in HD from the beautifully adorned Vilnius studios. A few highlights are described below.
Wheel of Fortune
BetGames launched its Wheel of Fortune in 2014 and updated it in 2021. It falls under the category of Gameshows which have recently gained traction in the live gaming industry. The game boasts an RTP of 96.3%, meaning the house edge stands at 3.7%. Available in English, BetGames’ Wheel of Fortune has no side bets but like its namesake casino, it takes the same format. The only difference is that a number is drawn every 4.5 minutes. Each draw will have the hostess manually pulling the wheel and as soon as the lucky number is revealed, the draw will come to an end.
Also referred to as 7 out of 42, Lucky 7 is a lottery-style casino game. The dealer removes 7 balls from the machine which carries a total of 42 numbered balls in black and yellow colors. Punters bet on the results of every draw. There will be 70 draws and the odds range from 1.01 to 2,000, depending on the type of wager.
This is a simple and fun game involving a real-time rolling of dice. There are various outcomes of the dice toss that punters can bet on. The game starts with the dealer throwing two dice that are mixed up in a box. Draws happen every minute in this game. A successful draw requires the dealer to stand on one of the dice sides. The final results depend on the dice color and the numbered pip. There are approximately 30 outcomes to wager on with odds varying between 1.14 and 30.
