For most people advancements in technology are truly a wonderful thing.
Casino enthusiasts are no exception, since now we have the opportunity to bring at least half the experience of actually being in a casino into our own devices, in the comfort of being wherever we like.
Diametrically opposed to our RNG (Random Number Generator) slot and table games, live casino streaming has no algorithms or complicated math working in the background.
What you get is just about as close to being in the casino instead.
Live casino suppliers stream live video of different casino games straight to the players via operator websites.
This means you as a player are seeing an actual dealer spin the roulette wheel, deal baccarat hands, and deal the next blackjack deck.
Is it rigged? No!
I insist, if you’re playing with a REPUTABLE operator that offers quality suppliers, you won’t have any issues.
Internet speeds are so advanced in most parts of the world that the live stream is almost flawless and the experience is really amazing.
These live casino suppliers will have one or several studios with different casino table games setup, cameras directed at different points of interest and microphones to hear the dealer.
Most live casino software features a chat room of some kind, where you can interact with other players, as well as speak with the dealer, and even leave them tips.
While the live casino world used to be about the usual blackjack, roulette and a few other table games, they’ve recently started many different innovation trends, coming up with completely new games and adding variants to classic ones, such as Evolution Gaming’s Lightning Roulette and Dreamcatcher.
Other suppliers of live casino products focus on live tables in actual casinos around the world, such as Authentic Gaming, who stream their roulette products from casinos in London, Denmark and the United States.
While the bulk of the live casino product offering focuses on popular table games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat and others, the speed of innovation in the industry is already pumping out new products, such as Evolution Gaming´s new game based on the popular board game “Monopoly”, which uses elements from the game coupled with gambling mechanics.
The best thing for some people is the fact that Live Casino never closes.
It will be open 24/7, 365 days a year for players’ enjoyment, so if you ever get the urge to interact with a real human dealer at anytime from the comfort of your own home or wherever you happen to be, you are now in luck!
The only things missing are physical people and free drinks, although some people prefer peace and quiet, part of the reason they may be playing online in the first place!
On the other hand, due to the fact live casino suppliers have a lot of overhead costs vs. traditional RNG suppliers, live casino tables will usually have higher minimum bets than RNG tables.
This could prove expensive, especially if you’re used to playing on the lower end of the budget, since some table games could ask from €1 to €5 minimum bets.
