🇨🇦 Vivo Gaming Live Casinos & Games
Vivo Gaming is one of the smaller live casino developers on the market right now.
However, they have long provided live casino games to North American customers, as they have a Curacao licence and their main studio in Costa Rica. Their main base in Israel, although they have offices in various global locations.
Vivo provides live blackjack, roulette, and baccarat. Uniquely though, they also have live Craps. This dice game is hugely popular among American and Canadian casino goers, so it’s always nice to see.

Our Experience at Vivo Gaming's Tables
Vivo Gaming live tables work just fine, but without all the bells and whistles of some of their competitors.
The stream quality is decent, the live dealers are chatty (if sometimes a bit thickly accented) and the games move quickly and efficiently.
We also very much enjoyed the casino floor atmosphere at Vivo tables. That’s because nearly all of their games are played in one giant room, with a shall we say… jazzy carpet. This means you can hear the animated chat and gameplay from all the other Vivo tables while you play. It certainly makes for a unique atmosphere!
This is also a bit of drawback though. We get the feeling a lot of players will find it too busy. It’s certainly an old school way of doing things in the live casino space.
Still most Canadian players will find a few hands or rounds at Vivo’s tables enjoyable enough – especially if you’ve previously played a lot of the other providers.
♠️ Stream Quality
Whilst, frankly, nowhere near the 4K cameras of Playtech or the crisp HD of Evolution, Vivo Gaming’s streams aren’t too bad at all.
There not grainy or pixelated, and they load fine even on a fairly slow connection.
You can also play up to three different games on one screen if your computer can handle it. That’s a nice touch that you won’t find anywhere else.
The only thing missing really is a few different camera angles. This is especially noticeable on Vivo’s Live Roulette, where its basically standard to have an alternate camera that watches the ball spin round the wheel.
♠️ Game Variety
Vivo Gaming has all the basics covered (blackjack, baccarat, roulette, casino poker). However, there’s not a lot there aside from that.
They also have a Craps table, which is great for those that enjoy this North American favourite.
However, if you’re looking for unique bonus multiplier games, auto roulette, party blackjack, VIP tables, branded tables, Sic Bo, etc. then you might be disappointed.
They actually do advertise a Sic Bo table on their website, but we couldn’t find it running at any of our recommended Vivo Gaming casinos.
♠️ Dealer Interaction
Vivo’s dealers are, on the whole, harder to have great interactions with than, say, Evolution Gaming’s crew.
Vivo, especially in their Costa Rican studio, tends towards female dealers wearing more risqué or revealing outfits than you might see at some of their competitors. You might find this cheap, or you might enjoy it – that’s up to you.
However, the dealers here do tend to have quite thick accents when speaking English. Might not be a problem if you’re also of Latin or Caribbean heritage, but they might be harder to understand for some.
With all the tables in one large studio, it can also be a little hard to hear what they’re saying sometimes. The chat is there, so you can talk to your live dealers and have some decent conversations if you put in the effort. But the customer-dealer interactions are generally nowhere near as smooth as those at the top-end of the live casino world.
The elephant in the room here, is that Vivo Gaming games do not work with iOS browsers. You’ll only be able to play them on Android devices, or those with some other operating system or browser.
That’s a big disadvantage in the modern market. In fact it might completely exclude many Canadian mobile players from enjoying their games.
However, if you can play them – Vivo Gaming tables are surprisingly good on mobile. The slightly lower quality stream means it loads easier on slower or unreliable connections.
The cards in blackjack and baccarat, which look almost comically large on desktop, are great for mobile play.
If you’ve got a powerful device, and connection, you can even do multi-table play while on the go.
