Live Casino offers an immersive experience where gamblers can play their favorite online casino games with a real dealer in a studio or land-based venue. These games are streamed to players in HD video so that they can interact with the dealer and the other players. Generally, the games follow standard casino game rules with the dealer taking bets, dealing cards or spinning a roulette wheel. Moreover, some Live Casino providers offer extra features like a chat interface for gamblers to communicate with the dealer and other players during the game session.
In order for a casino to have live casino games it requires certain equipment including a video camera, a room for the live dealers and a monitor for them to see which gamblers are online. This monitor also helps them interact with the gamblers by showing their nicknames on the screen (as a rule, each time a new player joins a table, the dealer welcomes them). Lastly, there is an engineering staff that works separately from the gaming room, which is responsible for controlling everything going on in the studio.
The game portfolio of a live casino varies widely between different providers but the core usually includes the golden trio of blackjack, roulette and baccarat as well as poker. In addition, some providers have unique games such as unlimited blackjack that lets an infinite number of gamblers play the same hand at the same time. In this case, the dealer has to keep track of each player’s action with the help of a special software.
