Asia Gaming Lobby – Popular on Bitcasino
Here at Bitcasino, we think that one of the most novel parts of our casino offering is the fact that we let our visitors choose a location to connect to when they play their favourite live casino games. Currently, Bitcasino has lobbies in Canada, Latin America, Western, Northern and Eastern Europe and Asia. While you are free to pick any region you like, selecting the lobby nearest to your own country can make your gaming experience more fun.
What’s a Lobby Anyway?
Bitcasino’s range of lobbies is a much more useful feature than it might appear at first glance, as it can determine the language that other players use when they talk to each other in chat. For example, our Northern Europe lobby supports the Russian language while our outpost in Latin America attracts Spanish speakers. Of course, as we’re generally an English website, you can speak English in all our game rooms too.
Lobbies also offer a range of games that are popular in each region. Our Western Europe-based dealers focus on more unusual casino experiences like lotteries, Wheel of Fortune, and dice while players in Canada can recreate all their favourite casino movie experiences with Casino Hold’em, blackjack and our best multiplayer games. Ever wanted to play with a dealer in rabbit ears? Canada is also where you’ll find our Playboy-themed games too.
Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll find inside our regional lobbies:
As the title of this guide suggests though, we’re here to tell you all about our Asia Gaming Lobby, a place where the game of baccarat is king. And, while that idea might sound strange to people used to playing roulette and blackjack on an evening, baccarat is huge in parts of China. In Macau, the Las Vegas of Asia, more than 91% of casinos’ money comes from baccarat compared to 21% in Las Vegas. Who are we to argue with that kind of popularity?
The Asia Gaming Lobby
Our lobbies are designed to be one-stop solutions to all your gaming needs, so we’ve made them easy to get to. Simply sign in (or register – it only takes fifteen seconds!), click through to our Live Casino section, and click on the dealer image in Asia. That’s all it takes to join our Asia Gaming Lobby. You can also get there from our Casino Games category. The lobby is usually on the second row of the unsorted games list.
If you’ve never visited Bitcasino’s Asia Gaming Lobby before, the first screen you encounter might seem a little confusing. Don’t worry – all those boxes and coloured dots are just our way of showing the results of previous games. For example, you can click the “Stats” button at the foot of each room to see the proportion of player wins to banker victories. The countdown above each game room lets players know how long they have left to place a bet. You can jump in at any time. The timer stops when the dealer draws the cards and begins again when the draw is over.
If you have specific preferences, we’ve made it easy to get to them too. Choose a different game type from the Asia Gaming Lobby by clicking on one of the five tabs to the left, under your profile details. The tabs all have different letters on them. From the top down, the first two (AGQ and AGIN) refer to game providers and the variants they offer but BID, VIP, and Multiplay are different ways of playing baccarat. VIP players can make tables private, while BID has two dealers and makes use of the slower, traditional “squeeze” play. Multiplay lets users take on more than one table at a time, for those players who can’t get enough.
At the Table
You can join a game by clicking on a dealer’s profile image inside the Asia Gaming Lobby. Once you’re in the game, it’s business as usual. However, if you’re not familiar with the Asian versions of baccarat, you might notice a few additional features on the table. For instance, AGIN and ADQ games have a Dragon Bonus, which lets players bet that the player or dealer will win by a large amount, either by getting a “natural” (reaching a value of 9) or leading by a value of four or more. Our players love this clever twist as it’s an opportunity for more profit.
The beauty of playing live casino games is that they’re very entertaining and quite different to the traditional online gaming experience. As mentioned, you can play with up to two dealers in some lobbies, and there are always thousands of players online to chat with. You can watch the croupier deal your cards from a shoe, so the computer odds that you might find in solo games of baccarat are one of the first features left behind in our Asia Gaming Lobby.
As with all the other games on the Bitcasino website, you’ll make your bets with bitcoin, so make sure you send at least mB 1 to our address at the top of the Asia Gaming Lobby screen (or by clicking on the Cashier button at the top of our homepage) to make sure nothing gets in the way of your enjoyment at the table. If it’s the first time you’ve made a deposit, we’ll double your bankroll up to 1 BTC. You’ll get a 50% bonus the second time and 25% for every new deposit after that.
If you’re a regular player with us, it’s always worth keeping an eye on our Promotions page to see when we’re offering free spins, lottery entries and VIP bonuses. We’re particularly proud of the services we can give to our VIP members. Whether it’s collecting special points to trade for luxury hardware like HDTVs or earning gift vouchers to spend around the site, we like to let players know we appreciate their support at Bitcasino. Because we really do.
Come and join us in the Asia Gaming Lobby and find out for yourself why Bitcasino, the first licensed bitcoin gaming site, is one of the best rewarding casinos out there.
