Want to know more about Live Jasmin?
The multi-award winning live cam site, Live Jasmin is one of the top sites of its kind in the world and regularly competes with competitors, Chaturbate and BongaCams, for market domination. It receives more than 400 million hits each month and has made its owner the wealthiest man in his country but, with the market for cam sites at saturation point, what makes Live Jasmin so special?
In this feature review, we find out more about the company behind Live Jasmin as well as looking at what the site has to offer and just what makes it head and shoulders above the rest.
Who Is ‘Live Jasmin’?
Ranked as the 11th most popular adult website in the world and receiving more than 400 million hits per month, Live Jasmin is, perhaps, the most well-known and successful live sex cam site ever; only the American sex cam site, Chaturbate gets more visitors.
The site was launched in November 2001 by György Gattyán, a Hungarian businessman. It was initially a domestic website with a .hu domain extension but by 2003 the website had grown in popularity and the site went global.
Gattyán is currently the richest man in Hungary with a net worth in excess of €5.6 billion. Although his wealth is now associated with diverse projects such as film and TV production as well as property it is to Live Jasmin that he owes this position of wealth.
Over the years, the site has been nominated for many awards, winning 10 major titles including:
- 2010 Live Video Chat of the Year (XBIZ Awards)
- 2013 Best Live Chat Website (AVN Awards)
- 2013 Best Live Cam Site (YNOT Awards)
- 2013 Best Live Cam Site (International) (Venus Awards)
- 2013 & 2014 Mobile Site of the Year (XBIZ Awards)
- 2014 Live Cam Site of the Year (XBIZ Awards)
- 2015, 2016 & 2017 Live Camsite of the Year (AW Awards)
- 2016 Adult Site of the Year (Live Cam Europe) (XBIZ Awards)
- 2016 Best Broadcaster Software (AW Awards)
- 2016 Premium Camsite of the Year (AW Awards)
- 2017 Best Online Support (AW Awards)
So, what is it about Live Jasmin that keeps so many people coming back for more?
What’s Special About Live Jasmin?
To be brutally honest, there is not much about Live Jasmin that differentiates it from many other premium cam sites. It offers an easy to use website, competitively priced private chats and a diverse and plentiful range of cam girls.
The secret of the success of this behemoth of the live cam world seems to be in its marketing and Live Jasmin is as well known for its affiliate pop-up links as it is for the quality of its service. Users of Pornhub, for instance, may be aware of LiveJasmin being opened in another tab when you hit their site. We don’t know what the deal is with this but LiveJasmin seems to crop up as a ‘companion’ site on a lot of adult networks.
This exposure in the online porn tube market has helped boost the site’s profile and it continues to attract new audiences as well as new models to the site.
It is this last element which may be the secret behind Live Jasmin’s success; the diversity and sheer volume of its performer-base.
There are estimated to be over 200,000 cam models registered on the site and you can easily sort those that are available online using a vast number of pre-set filters, including:
- Hair Color
- Willingness to Perform (by type of activity)
Of course, it would be churlish to ignore the fact that most of Live Jasmin’s broadcasters use HD streaming. This alone is enough to put the Live Jasmin in the elite category of cam sites. Visit one of the cheaper alternatives and spend ten minutes watching poor quality video with broken audio and try arguing.
What Does Live Jasmin Cost?
Joining Live Jasmin is free and you can sign up for an instant access account with just your email address. This gives you a basic membership with which you can browse around the site, watch free preview broadcasts and save interesting channels to your folder.
If you find a cam girl (or boy) you fancy getting more up close and personal with then you will need to buy credits in order to access features like chat, tips and gifting.
Credits come in bundles with greater discounts, the more you buy:
- 99 in credits for $22.99
- 99 in credits for $33.99
- 99 in credits for $75.99
- 99 in credits for $106.99
- 99 in credits for $169.99
You can pay using your debit/credit card, PayPal, Skrill or via a number of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.
All purchases earn you a bonus and free credits plus you can get access to 10 free minutes simply by verifying your credit/debit card.
Once you have topped up your credits, you are free to pay for private chats or purchase videos, photos or tip performers as you wish. The cost of a private chat varies by broadcaster and you can find some cam girls available for as little $0.98 per minute to those that charge in excess of $9.99 per minute. Extra costs apply for functions like Cam2Cam and two-way audio.
You can also find VIP shows which are essentially group chats that you pay to enter. The cost can be just a few credits and often gives a better show that just the free chats.
Live Jasmin: We say…
Live Jasmin is a top quality and well put together cam site that is simple to use and not too expensive (compared to similar offerings).
Although it has plenty of cam girls, the vast majority of these offer a very general broadcast; albeit in high quality and with some nice functionality offered through tipping and being able to purchase private videos/photos.
If you are looking for a site that delivers more niche material and content then Live Jasmin is not for you. Yes, you can find some Dominant girls who broadcast JOI or some fet girls but the site is not renowned for it.
What is a selling point is the diversity of the woman online in terms of nationality and broadcast language. Truly a global cam site, you can certainly bank your credits in one place and enjoy a host of European girls alongside Latina and Americans with some Asian and Middle Eastern models thrown in for good measure.
If you are new to cam sites then Live Jasmin won’t steer you wrong and you can certainly pick up some amazing shows through the website. However, for some purists, the appeal of the cam side is the voyeuristic aspect of peering in, through a live window, to someone’s life and the HD quality combined with the studio-like bedroom sets does beg the question….why not just watch porn instead? Sites like Chaturbate still have a high volume of real amateurs that lend more of an ‘authentic’ and ‘natural’ air to the proceedings.
At the end of the day, it’s each to their own and if you want live access to a huge number of women at a reasonable price then Live Jasmin is a safe bet…a safe bet.
