Super Casino, the first casino show to be broadcast on live television, has been on air in the United Kingdom since April of 2005. The show airs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on both the Supercasino.com website and Sky channel 862. Super Casino also airs on terrestrial television in the UK. It is broadcast on Channel 5 and 5USA on five nights per week. Fans of the Super Casino website can enjoy the same type of interactive play when watching Super Casino on TV, as the show's format allows viewers to place bets via website registration, their smartphones or their telephones.
The Super Casino TV show airs roulette games in two formats: Roulette Express Premium and Live Roulette. Roulette Express Premium features an automated roulette wheel and presently airs on Sky 862 daily between the hours of 04:00 and 18:00. This format is streamed live on the Super Casino website at all hours of the day and night. Roulette Express Premium does not feature live presenters and while this show is being broadcast, the ball on the automated roulette wheel is manoeuvred by compressed air. Each gaming round of Roulette Express Premium is brief in duration, allowing players to place new bets on a frequent basis.
Live Roulette airs on Sky 862 seven days a week between the hours of 18:00 and 04:00 and the show is live streamed on the Super Casino website during the same hours. This presenter led roulette format is also broadcast between the hours of 00:00 and 04:00 on Channel 5 and 5USA, although the show airs only five nights a week on these channels. Live Roulette rounds are slightly longer in duration than those of Roulette Express Premium, as this format utilizes both live presenters and spinners. Those who play along with Live Roulette can place bets each round until the ball is moving along the wheel.
Live Roulette currently has nine active presenters. Rob Lamarr and Olivia Stanleigh have worked as Live Roulette hosts since the Super Casino TV show debuted in 2005. Anna Jardine Jones and Gema Ensenat came on board in 2006 and continue to host to this day. The remaining Live Roulette presenters, namely Derek Gibbons, Helen Shephard, Bryn Lucas, Lee Baldry and Emily De Cosimo, have acted as hosts since 2008.
