What is a Live Casino?

When you play at a live casino online, you are taking part in real-time games with real dealers and players. You still use the same digital interface to place your bets but instead of using Random Number Generators for results a physical dealer uses cards and a roulette wheel or croupier to determine outcomes. This gives the games a more social feel and allows you to interact with the dealer by typing into a chat window.

The games are played in special studios which have been designed to be able to broadcast over the internet in great quality. The good news is that most modern home internet connections are able to deliver this video with no problems at all.

A live casino consists of three main rooms; the studio where the games are played, a control room and an analyst room. This configuration is fairly standard but can differ slightly from one operator to the next.

The game portfolio a live casino offers will usually consist of the classic table games found in every land-based casino along with baccarat and poker. In addition, there are often a few niche games to choose from.

A nifty feature of many live casino sites is the ability to claim cash rewards if you win. These bonuses have terms and conditions attached but are a great way to add extra value to your gaming sessions. You can claim these rewards by visiting the cashier section of your casino account.
