Evolution Gaming’s Live Football Studio Rules & Returns
The live dealer casino industry has seen so many innovations over the
last ten years, some people won’t gamble any other way. Few have
time to visit land-based casinos anymore, and the computer-generated
online casino games can be so monotonous. Live dealer games bring the live casino action to the players, via desktop, smartphone,
tablet, even on our living room televisions.
Throughout it all, Evolution Gaming has, from day one, been
the world’s top provider of live casino games. They have ten
straight years worth of eGR Live Casino Supplier of the Year awards to prove it, too. Their innovations have far surpassed any
other company, including their production of unique table content,
like Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live and Lightning Dice. One of their more recent productions is

surrounding the game, and they’ve done it in an action-packed way

How to Play Football Studio Live
The game takes place on an anything-but-typical casino table. Instead
of a felted table top, it is decorated to look like a pitch-style
football field. To each side of the halfway line is a box the size of
a playing card.
The left box is labeled Home, and the right box Away.
These represent the teams competing in the 2-card match. Players will
bet on the Home team, the Away team, or a Draw between the two.
Each team is dealt only one card. The highest card wins. If the cards
are identical, the match ends in a Draw. In the event of a Draw, all
bets placed on Home and Away are returned at 50%.
Cards rank, lowest to highest: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A
The pay table and house edge are as follows:
1 to 1
1 to 1
11 to 1
For reference, a histogram shows the
last 24 consecutive results, while the betting diagram reveals what
percentage of active players are currently betting on Home, Away
What’s So Exciting About It?
Obviously, this is a simple card game. A three year old could understand and play it. It’s the atmosphere that makes this such a fan-favorite. Everything about the game exudes football, from the live dealer’s personality as a lively football commentator, to the live updates whenever there’s a major match in progress.
Live Football Studio actually debuted in June of 2018 to coincide with the 21st Annual FIFA World Cup in Russia. The screen behind the table depicted live footage of the matches as they took place. Dealers interacted with the players via live chat, and also reacted to the action on the pitch behind them, commentating with as much vigor as any professional sports commentator would.
The game is fast-paced and enjoyable to begin with. If there happens
to be a major match going on at the time, it becomes far more
