Live Casino is a real-time online gambling experience with a human dealer. Streamed to your computer, smartphone or tablet in real-time, players interact with the croupier as though they are sitting in Las Vegas or another major gambling city. In addition to a high-quality streaming studio and a variety of games, Live Casino features two-way chat options which allow you to discuss your bets with the croupier.
Live croupiers play their games in a special casino room and are filmed from a variety of angles by multiple powerful cameras. The dealer then watches a monitor which displays all the bets placed by players. They also receive messages from players and can respond to them in the stream. The whole process runs in HD and provides the same experience you’d get from a physical casino, but with the added benefits of convenience and speed.
The technology behind the scenes is quite remarkable. Optical character recognition software converts symbols, numbers and letters on the cards, roulette wheel or dice into data that’s displayed on your screen. This software is getting a lot of attention for its use in medical and insurance fields but it’s already an established component of Live Casino.
When you choose to play a Live Casino game, you’ll enter the online gambling site and browse through the games displayed in the live lobby in much the same way you would scope out a table on the casino floor. Some games are played with other players and others feature a one-to-one battle with the dealer. A number of live casino games are being added all the time and the range includes everything from blackjack to poker to baccarat.
