Which Live Dealer Games Are Out There?
In this new digital world, there is no need for you to go to a casino to play out traditional offerings such as roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps, slots and others. All you need is a good internet connection, a high-quality web-camera (optional) and you can have your own private casino right in your living room!
What Are Live Dealer Games?
Simply speaking, a live dealer game is any casino or gambling game in which there is a real human being (whom you view and interact with via a computer or a phone) who acts a dealer for you - if for example, you are playing blackjack, there will be a remote human, located in a far-off studio, whom you can view on your computer screen and who will deal out cards for you in much the same way a traditional Australian casino would - the only difference being that your interactions with the casino are digital instead of face-to-face. The action in the studio is generally captured from various angles using HD cameras, making for a seamless and realistic gambling experience which typically runs 24/7.
The dealers/croupiers are very friendly, enable fast action and very good at interacting with you while playing. All the top gambling websites provide 100% licensed and regulated live games and offer 24/7 support in case of any issues that might crop up.
What Are The Various Live Dealer Games Which Are Available?
Although traditional offerings such as Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Casino Hold'em are very common, there are plenty of other unusual yet even more interesting options such as Lightning Roulette, Dragon Tiger, Dream Catcher, 3-Card Poker and many others being provided by various gambling operators. Each is typically very easy to understand and play, is great fun to be a part of and is guaranteed to keep you hooked for many an hour. We list below a brief explanation of some of the more traditional games out there:
- Blackjack: The objective here is to let the casino deal as many cards to you (each card dealt to you is a "hit" till you decide to "stay" and end the process) and the sum of the face value of the cards has to get as close to 21 as possible. The dealer too follows this process, not stopping till he either beats you or goes over 21 ("busts") and if you are closer to 21 than the dealer, you win! All the usual side options such as splitting pairs and insurance also exist in these live Blackjack deals.
- Roulette: This game needs no introduction and is replicated exactly how you may have experienced it in casinos (and also in movies!). Multiple cameras from various angles capture the action to give you a holistic view of the action and all the usual bets such as red/black, odd/even and others are there in these events just like in real casinos.
- Baccarat: While not as popular as some of the other wagers, this too has stood the test of time and still enjoys favor with some gamblers. All the usual rules apply with the one difference being the speed of play - a Baccarat live game is typically around 50% faster than a game at a real casino.
- Hold'Em A fun and casino-friendly version of the ubiquitous Texas Hold'em, this game too is fairly popular among gamblers and is much more fun, risky and entertaining due to the number of combinations involved. If you are well-versed with Texas Hold'Em, the casino version should be a breeze for you.
All said and done, these kinds of innovations in online gaming are the next step in the evolution of online casinos and is certainly here to stay. So, go ahead and give these newest live dealer games a try and prepare yourself for an exhilarating ride!
