Live Casino is the latest effort that online casinos are making to chip away at the part of their market that still feels a little reluctant to play table games. The way that these games work is to connect the player with a real dealer via a live video feed that can be seen on their computer or mobile device screen. In order to communicate with the croupier, the player uses buttons on the screen to make their decisions and bets are made using software that works out how much they’ll win or lose based on the odds of their chosen game.
These tables and the equipment that makes them possible are usually located in a special room at the casino that’s been specially designed to allow for this kind of live gaming. The best live casinos also use multiple cameras that give players various views of the tables to provide a very authentic and immersive experience. They can also have monitors to help them keep track of the bets that players are placing and the messages that they’re sending to dealers.
These screens are used to show the results of the game as well so that players can see if they’ve won or lost within seconds of the outcome of the game being determined. This is especially important in games like roulette where the result of a spin can sometimes be difficult to see. The software that runs the live casino can also announce when a game is over and inform players of the results as soon as they’re known.
