Live casino is a recent addition to the portfolio of most online casinos and was designed with the notion of bridging the gap between land-based casino games and the home gaming experience. In live casino you will be able to interact with a real dealer as you play classic table games such as blackjack and roulette or more innovative variations and niche options such as the popular lottery-style titles.
When playing live casino games you will be able to select your game from the lobby of your chosen website, much like scoping out a game on the casino floor. The game will be displayed in the lobby and once you have selected it you will be automatically included in the session. The dealer will then deal cards or spin the wheel and your account balance will go up or down depending on the outcome. Many games are played with other players and some include chat functionality which allows you to communicate with the dealer.
The games are filmed in special studios which have been designed with your playing experience in mind and most modern home internet connections will be able to deliver the video quality that is required. You will also need a decent screen size to be able to follow the action as it unfolds. You will use buttons on your screen to communicate with the dealer what action you would like to take in blackjack or to place bets on a virtual roulette table.
