What is Live Casino?
Live casino is a variant of online gambling where the player is able to interact with a real dealer using real casino equipment, such as cards and a roulette wheel. The interaction can be carried out via a chat window with the dealer, as well as by pressing buttons to place bets. This gives the experience a more authentic feel and makes the games much more like playing at a real casino than standard online slots.
Players can choose from a number of different table games, including roulette, blackjack and poker. Some of these tables also offer a VIP version for players that want to experience the game in a more luxurious setting with higher betting limits. Players can play a number of free games to get used to the gameplay before depositing any money, and this will help them develop a strategy before they start placing real money bets.
The dealer will be connected to a camera and the video of them in action is transmitted through the internet to the casino software that runs the game. The bets that are placed will then be processed and any wins or losses will be displayed instantly to the players. The digital interface between the casino software and the real world comes in the form of a piece of hardware that is no bigger than a shoebox, called the GCU. Every single live casino has one and without it the game would simply not be possible.
