How Do Live Casinos Work?
A live is an live casino which uses live dealers for its games. Advanced video technology allows the dealer to be streamed in real time to players online. Players get to make their bets at a virtual table. In some cases, they can even chat with the live casino dealer.
The term “live casino” is a bit misleading though. When you play at a live casino, the game is in real time, but you aren’t playing at a standard brick-and-mortar casino. Rather, the live dealers and their game tables are in front of a blue screen. The live casino will then “blue screen” live action into the background – such as a live casino entrance, lobby, or even real people playing other games. Only the actions of the dealer are live; the action happening in the background has all been recorded.
Even though there are a lot of different live casinos online, most of these are using the exact same providers. Currently, the two biggest live casino providers are CWC Gaming and Evolution Gaming. An live casino can sign up with these companies and will be able to include their live dealer games on their network. Thanks to the blue screen technology, the live casino can even choose to put their own logo in the background or customize the background in some other way. It is possible, for example, to play live casino at two different casinos, to see the exact same dealer, but have different backgrounds.
The room where the live dealers work does not resemble a real live casino at all. Instead, it is generally a large room with many different gaming tables. There is a blue screen behind each table. In front or above each table, there is a web camera which streams the action. The cards which live dealers use are generally much larger than real cards so that players can see them better. Since there are typically many live dealers all in the same room, spaced just about 2 yards from each other, it is common for them to chat amongst themselves – even if you can’t see the other dealer they are talking to
Each live casino company has its own particular style. For example, CWC Gaming has a modern style and a diverse group of dealers. Evolution Gaming uses dealers from Eastern Europe (though they do have some native English speaking dealers too) and a more traditional style. Just about every live casino company will use beautiful, female dealers – sometimes in bikini tops or other sexy outfits!
