Since the late nineties, the gambling has been a common practice in the society. Then technology took off and gambling followed suit; growing in depth and width. People found convenient and more fun ways of gaming in the comfort of online casinos. However, we can all agree that online casinos are more robotic and lack human touch. How was that solved?
Technology always seem to have a fix. Live casinos were unveiled to fill that gap and so far, they have been revolutionary by offering a rich gaming experience.
So, what’s a live casino?
A live casino is a perfect blend of online casinos and land based casinos. Take the real life thrill and the human interactive aspect of an offline casino and place it on an online platform where convenience and locational freedom is at its best. What you get is a live casino.
Simply put, a live casino allows two people who are in the same room to play their favorite casino games like they would in a real casino. There are two types of live casinos namely:
- An online Live Casino; The online casino takes place on the internet. Players use apps or the website to play on their computers or smart devices. You don’t have to go to the real casino to do that.
- The brick and mortar live casino; Here, the player goes to a physical casino and uses the computer screens available there to play against live dealers on the screen
In both versions, the dominant factor is the platform. If you want to play away from the casino, your computer or phone will get the job done. On the other hand, if you love terrestrial casino environment, then you will play with your opponents on the screen available there. The fact that they are live dealers gives you the freedom to chat with them to discuss your moves as you play.
How does a live casino work?
The word live is associated with real action. So it is expected that in a live casino you will be able to see real action across the interface. Forget about the noises made by the cards on your ordinary online games. Instead, you will see the other person flipping the cards, spinning the wheels and rolling the dice in real time. The rules, wagering requirements and house edge effects remain the same as in real casino gambling.
So, how do you get started?
You will need to sign up to get an account then place your bets after carefully reading the terms and conditions. You can discuss the details of the game with your new opponent on screen before you play. Just like that, you are set. The winner gets rewarded as usual.
The games offered in a live casino are similar to those offered in a land based casino. I guess that is how they complete the thrill without being too far-fetched. You will find games such as blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, sicbo, and Hold’em. Depending on your choice of a live casino, you will find different games being offered. Software providers that online casinos might have are; NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Microgaming, Playtech and BetGames.
Casino gambling has never gotten better than this. For anyone who enjoys the thrill and hates the pressure of having to dress up to get the casino, live casinos are the perfect solution. As long as you know the rules of the game, the limit is your imagination.
