ComTrade joins forces with Palaces Casino to launch Live Games system

October 13, 2010 | Sarah Blackburn

ComTrade (formerly HERMES SoftLab), has today announced the launch of its Live Games system, which brings together the excitement of Roulette and Blackjack played in a traditional landbased casino and the world of online gaming.

Licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, ComTrade has partnered with the bricks and mortar Palaces Casino owner Patrick Duffy, to broadcast table games live from the casino to online players who then actively participate in the landbased game. The dealers and croupiers are equipped with operational monitors in order to communicate with the online player. The system informs the croupiers of each player’s decision and other necessary information that is vital in bringing the two worlds together.

ComTrade’s Live Games system will compliment the “thrills and spills” experience of a live casino by offering compelling graphics with the real authenticity of a landbased casino that is not possible in a standard live games studio environment. The new live games system also offers low operational set up costs as the Roulette and Blackjack tables are already available for use at Palaces Casino.

Ales Gornjec, Business Development Manager for gaming at ComTrade said, “We have designed and integrated a front and back end solution to meet the broader demands of our customers who are continuously looking to offer the very best in live gaming products. At ComTrade, we believe that trust is achieved by using live feeds transmitted from well known land based casinos.”

Patrick Duffy, owner of Palace Casino and said “ComTrade have manufactured an astonishing product and have far passed my expectations, we worked marvelously together and I feel both of us are happy with this world beating technology of unsurpassed quality which is just simply better than anything out there but most importantly it is just as good as playing in the club in person.”
