What is a Live Casino?
A live casino is a form of online gambling that offers a real ‘live’ dealer, and gives the player the feel of playing in a brick and mortar casino. It has become extremely popular amongst gamblers who are unable to visit their local casinos.
Live casino games are broadcast via live streaming video link. The players are able to watch the game, chat with the dealer, and place wagers in real time. These games also feature a range of special features such as ‘Bet Behind’, which allows an unlimited number of gamblers to place a bet on a specific player.
Live dealer casinos typically offer a limited number of games. Some live dealer casinos may only offer baccarat, blackjack, or roulette. Others may offer a wide variety of table games. Most of these games use a live Random Number Generator and real cards to allow the player to make wagers.
Players can interact with the dealer by typing messages through a web-based chat facility. Dealers who score well respond quickly and efficiently to questions.
While there are some similarities between a live casino and a traditional land-based casino, the latter generally has a lower house edge. This means that you are less likely to lose money on a single bet.
Although most online casinos offer a wide variety of gaming options, most offer only a few games that are popular with live dealers. Blackjack, roulette, and baccarat are the most common.
