Live Casino Games
Ever wondered what’s in the Live Casino section? It’s like the table games section, only that instead of playing against an AI dealer or a machine with a random number generator, you play against a real casino with real human dealers. Basically, this means you’re experiencing the real brick and mortar casino experience, with the difference that you’re experiencing it online from home.
Live dealer casino games are usually streamed over the internet, allowing players to watch both the table and the dealer, and all the live action as it unfolds. The live casino dealer will behave in the same way as those you’ll find in a brick and mortar casino, and will, for example, ask you to place bets and make choices where necessary. You can do so via the interface where you can choose how much to bet and what kind of bets you want to play. Your choices will show up in front the croupier or dealer, who in turn can play his hands or spin the roulette, depending on the online casino live game you are playing. Traditionally, there will be plenty of cameras at each table and you’ll be able to follow the action through a variety of angles. For example, if you’re playing live poker or live blackjack you could also see scanned cards on your interface, and you’ll know which cards are already out on the table.
You may also find social features in certain online live casinos: these include chat functions with other players at the table, and sometimes you may even be allowed a little (just a little) convo with the live dealer. Live dealer roulette has also seen experiments with different formats such as game shows – turning them into a spectacular event indeed.
At live online casinos, you can only play using real money – this is a natural requisite since not only is it more expensive to run online live casino games, but the staff also needs to be paid and seats are usually limited, and paying players get priority.
Live Dealer Online Casino
Live casinos feature quite a few different tables, but only few can really be classified as the best live casino online games. Live dealer blackjack is one of these, where you can try to beat the dealer’s hand without going bust (ie, over 21) and since this is also considered to be the most popular table game worldwide, it is only natural to include blackjack in live casino.
High rollers and players with bigger budgets may prefer live baccarat, a relatively easy game to play which becomes even more authentic at a live dealer casino – maybe because superstitious gamblers may feel more at ease playing against a live dealer than a machine.
You will come across quite a few live dealer roulette tables at live dealer casinos, because quite a few players can sit at the table and you’ll also see a few tables where the capacity limit is – unlimited! Live casino roulette is fun and there’s a social element to it too, which is what makes it more enjoyable when played live.
And, among the top online live casino games, is the immortal Texas Hold ‘em up. Have a look at the huge selection of live dealer games available at Genesis Casino.
