Playing at a Live Casino

live casino

Live casino is a new way to play online casino games, using video streaming technology to connect players with real dealers in real time. These dealers are based in a studio or land-based casino and stream the action to your device so you can place bets and chat with other players. This makes playing at a live casino much more realistic than traditional online casino games, which use computerised opponents.

The dealers in a live casino are filmed while they play their games and the image is then fed into software that converts it for online streaming. Once a player has placed a bet, the dealer will either deal them cards, roll a dice or spin the roulette wheel and the results are instantly displayed to players. The dealers also handle the chat functions and can answer questions from players.

Most live casinos offer classic table games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat. However, there are also unique options such as Sic Bo – an ancient Chinese dice game that has gained popularity recently – and Monopoly Live, which combines elements from popular board games with gambling mechanics.

Mobile apps make playing at a live casino even more convenient, as you can take the games with you wherever you go. You just need to ensure that your mobile device is compatible with the site and you have a strong internet connection, as live games can be quite demanding in terms of bandwidth. Some mobile casinos also provide special bonuses for live casino games, which can add value to your bankroll.
