Based in the UK, Vuetech is a relative newcomer to the online casino market and are attempting to carve out their own niche in the live gaming field. Other live dealer softwares include Visionary iGaming and Net Entertainment.
Vuetech software is an instant play platform that downloads the first time the player clicks to play and is stored in the temporary files of the computer for future use. It is java based and works with most browsers as long as a recent edition of Java is installed and functioning correctly on the computer.
There primary focus is on Live Games – all Vuetec casinos stream their live games from Fitzwilliam Card Club in Dublin, Ireland – and as with all live games they’re pretty slow. They do offer a unique system for live play wherein the dealer will automatically play the hand out with no instructions from the player. This is nothing new for the likes of roulette, but when playing blackjack the player no longer makes the hit/stand/split/double decisions and instead the dealer plays the hand out according to Basic Strategy (the mathematically correct strategy). Whether this is a good thing or not is very much personal. Yes this strategy will save you money in the long run, but part of the fun of playing a game like blackjack is in being allowed to decide what to do with your own hand. Alongside this, they offer an early payout function that allows the player to leave the hand early for a substantially reduced payoff. This is always a very bad choice for the player and should be avoided.
As well as their live games, Vuetec casinos offer a small range of other RNG (random number generator) games. The selection is generally poor, with around 9 video poker variants all with very poor paytables for the player and around 12 slots games.
Most Video Poker games come with an auto-hold feature that will make suggestions as to which cards should be held and which discarded. Most of the suggested decisions are correct, but be aware that the auto-hold is not 100% accurate.

It should be noted that if all Vuetec casino slots games use the same settings that Lucky Live Casino offers, their slots games offer some very competitive house edges.
Overall Vuetec casinos are by and large reputable and safe for the player, however the weak game selection and high house edge of their Video Poker games and only slightly mitigated by the lower than average slots house edge leaving Vuetec in the middle of the pack.
