Extreme Live Gaming is an online casino software company that specializes in live dealer casino games including live roulette, live blackjack, and live baccarat. The software provider was originally launched in 2013 and was subsequently bought by the Novomatic Group the following year.
While Extreme Live Gaming tends to offer more live roulette options than other live table games, they do offer two live blackjack versions, which are available via four different colored tables for players looking for low stakes games, VIP games and blackjack featuring various international languages and currency support.

Interestingly, Extreme Live Gaming’s live blackjack is designed according to table color, depending on if you are looking for a low limit game, a VIP (high limit) game, or one of the currency and language variations. Live blackjack is also available as custom tables for different online casinos such as BetVictor Casino and Energy Casino.
