How does Live Casinos work?
If you were to describe the truest meaning of live casinos in one sentence, it would probably sound like this. Live casinos are created to replicate the exact atmosphere you’d be getting on a real land based casino. Except now you’re playing at home, or wherever you want to play.
Live Casino combines the best of both worlds: online gambling and gambling on a land based casino. More often than not, this claim is literally true, as players from both casinos (land based & online) are able to play on the same exact table. There are usually several cameras rolling, sending live feed to your device (PC/Mac/Mobile), where you can make real time decisions, and play your favourite table games (roulette, blackjack, and more).
Live games are broadcasted by either:
- Straight from a land based casino
- From a studio setting, built just for the live casino games
There aren’t any particular differences between these two, at least not for the players. Regardless of where the game is broadcasted from, you’re fully anonymous. You can’t for example see other players who are participating on another side of the camera. You can see the dealers of course, as they are huge part why the live games are so exciting and interesting.
Most of the locations are in Europe, places such as: Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Malta, France. European casino culture is extremely prestigious, so live casino games are the best way to get a feel for that atmosphere, without traveling across the globe!
Dealers / Game hosts
No matter what the game is, almost all live games has a real person managing the game – just like it would be on a land based casino! Games like blackjack requires an dealer to deal out the cards, but there are also several live casino games that doesn’t necessarily require a human touch in order to work, but there are still dealers and game hosts to make sure you’re having the best time of your life at the table!
The most common language at the tables is english, but there are exclusive live casino lobbies for Indian players as well, where you can speak Hindi for example.
Depending on the provider, almost all live feeds are broadcasted in at least 720p, mostly 1080p. Based on what games are you playing, there can be multiple different camera angles, that you can actually control yourself, by changing the view from the user interface of that particular game.
Please note, that live games are broadcasted in real time, which means that you’d need to have pretty decent internet connection in order to play live games without any unnecessary disconnects.
