Live Casino is a new breed of online casino that uses real people to operate the games instead of computerised software. This makes the whole experience far more realistic and a lot more exciting too! The games are played in real time and you will be able to chat to the croupiers and dealers as they play out the game.
A number of different cameras are used to capture the action in the casino room which then gets transmitted over the internet in HD video. This is all thanks to an ingenious piece of technology called a GCU which is really the heart of the system. This is only about the size of a shoe box and without it there simply wouldn’t be any live casino.
The GCU converts the information from the camera into data that can be processed by the online casinos that work with it. Then, the betting buttons are activated and players can place their bets. They will be processed until the dealer announces ‘no more bets’ and then the results will be shown on screen.
The games themselves are played to standard rules for the relevant table. For example, blackjack is played with a deck of cards and if you can beat the dealer’s hand or they go bust then you win. There are also multiple side bets for suited or unsuited cards and other combinations that can lead to a big payout. This is one of the main draws to this type of gaming and it has proved incredibly popular with many players who are used to playing land-based casino tables.
