Live Casino – A New and Exciting Way to Gamble
Live casino is a new and exciting way to experience real-time gambling without ever leaving the comfort of your own home. This is made possible by utilising sophisticated technology that allows players to play against a dealer and interact with them in real-time through a video link. The games are streamed in high definition and you can see the cards dealt, bets placed and the results of the game in the same way that you would in a brick and mortar casino.
The interface between the digital technology of the online casino and the live action of the game comes in the form of optical character recognition software which recognises specific playing cards or identifies where the ball has landed on a roulette wheel. It’s the same sort of technology that car parks use to capture number plates on vehicles entering or leaving and it’s an ingenious piece of hardware which ensures the smooth running of all live casinos. Every live game has one of these boxes which is only about the size of a shoe box and it wouldn’t be possible for any of these games to run without it.
As for the dealers, they undergo extensive training to be able to deal the cards and handle the bets as they would in a physical casino. They also have to be able to create an engaging ambiance in the virtual setting which is crucial for players to feel as if they are playing at a real table in a real casino. The fact that they are able to communicate with players through a chat option also adds a further dimension to the gaming experience and makes it feel more authentic.
One of the challenges for live casino operators is ensuring that they provide the same level of quality across the globe. This is why they tend to invest in a process called localization which involves adapting the game interface, graphics and audio to resonate with different markets. It is an important factor in attracting players and retaining them.
There are a wide range of games to choose from in our live casino, including popular card and table games such as blackjack and roulette. However, we also have a few specialities that set us apart from the rest. These include a casino version of an iconic board game in Monopoly Live, Football Studio where you can speculate on which team will be dealt the highest cards and Side Bet City, Lightning Dice and Money Wheel that complete our diverse range of live casino games.
