TvBet Software & 3 Online Casinos Reviewed
TVBet is a live dealer casino software developer that’s based out of Cyprus. The group deploys games via their studios in high-definition. The group has a slate of attractive hosts, and they offer up titles like Keno, blackjack, backgammon, poker, roulette, and more.
The interface from TVBet is attractive, giving players the ability to easily choose the type of wager they want to place. The games are compatible with both desktop and mobile devices, allowing for play anywhere you can snag a data connection. TVBet has gone the quirky route of trying to incorporate costume themes to some of their games, which is something we haven’t seen very often. This helps the group stand out a bit, and we’re excited to see what casinos they partner with going ahead.
This is the first time I've ever seen true backgammon in a casino. Unfortunately, there was no help file on the game at the time of this review. There was a very long list of bets, most of which were in Russian. From just watching the game, I think a computer tells the dealer which pieces to move. The player can bet on the eventual winner of the game as well as many proposition bets.
I applaud the effort to introduce a backgammon game. However, they need to do a much better job of explaining the rules, especially to an English-speaking audience. The press announcement about the game was of little help either.

War of Elements
War of Elements is a glorified version of Casino War. One deck of cards is used. The player can bet on the winning side as well as a host of side bets. The odds are dynamically updated as the dealer goes through the shoe. It appears to be much the same as War of Bets.
The strange thing about War of Elements is that it offers almost true odds. They seem to calculate the true odds, based on the deck composition, and then offer those odds rounded down. The number of decimal places the odds pay vary. On average, the return is 0.1% to 0.5%.
This is in contrast to the odds posted in the help file, based on the odds off the top of a fresh deck, that suggest a return of 90%.
Wheel is a simple game based on the spin of a wheel with 38 numbers, like roulette. The odds seem to be the same as in roulette too, for a return of 94.74%. Please see my page on the game for all the rules and analysis.
