Many online casinos now have a live casino section. In these sections, you’ll find a range of casino games such as Blackjack, Roulette, Sic Bo, Baccarat and many others. The way that live casino games differ from the standard computer generated games players have become used to at online casinos is that the games are played in real-life with real dealers and croupiers.
For example, if you are playing live roulette, you are betting on a real ball to land in a pocket of a real roulette wheel which is spun by a real croupier. If you are playing live blackjack, you are playing on a real table with real cards and a real-life dealer. You place your bets via your computer or mobile device and the game is streamed live from a real casino location.
There are several games now available in live casinos and more being added on a regular basis.
Let’s take a look at some of the live casino games which you can currently play at many online casinos.
Blackjack is one of the most popular games to play at a casino and is now available to play against a real dealer.
As you are taking a seat at a real-life blackjack table, seats are limited. However, there are multiple live blackjack tables to choose from with various minimum and maximum stakes. There are also different variations of blackjack such as live Quantum Blackjack and others.
Cards are dealt by a real-life dealer who you can interact with via the chat box.
As you would expect, Live Roulette is widely available to play online with a number of live roulette tables available. Many online casinos have a number of roulette variations which you can play such as European & American Roulette, French Roulette, Lightning Roulette and more.
Casino Hold’em is another popular game which is available to play live. Only one set of cards are dealt meaning that an unlimited number of players can play at a single table with the cards dealt by a real dealer.
A number of live Baccarat games can be played online including standard Baccarat, Speed Baccarat, Lightning Baccarat, Squeeze Baccarat and more.
Similar to Live Casino Hold’em, an infinite number of players can play any one game which means you will never have a problem getting a seat.
Sic Bo is a game where players bet on the outcome of three dice. There are a number of exciting betting options and the addition of a real-life croupier hosting the game makes betting even more exciting.
As well as standard casino games which you’d expect to find at a live casino, there are also games which have been specifically developed for live casinos. These are game show type games which have proved extremely popular and entertaining to players.
When playing Live Monopoly Live, players bet on which number a large spinning wheel will stop on. There are also bonus rounds which are entertaining and can produce huge returns.
Similar to Monopoly Live, Live Dreamcatcher features a large spinning wheel. Players bet on the numbers the wheel will land on and when the wheel lands on a multiplier, the next winning bets are increased by often large amounts. The live host entertains the players with conversation and their energetic persona.
Live Hi-Lo is possibly one of the simplest live casino games. A card is dealt and players can bet on the next card being higher or lower. Despite its simplicity, Live Hi-Lo can be very entertaining thanks to the live host.
Live Lightning Dice is one of many ‘lightning’ games from Evolution Gaming. Players bet on the outcome of 3 dice with added excitement coming from the casino boosting the odds of selected bets after the betting round has closed. Lightning Dice has the potential to pay out huge returns from relatively small wagers which is one reason players find it so appealing.
If you’re familiar with the hit TV game show ‘Deal or No Deal’, you’ll understand how Live Deal or No Deal works. The live host and their assistant opens boxes to reveal numbers which are then removed from the board. Players have the option to take the bankers deal after each round or continue to the end and either take the value in the host’s box or swap it for the last remaining box.
Live Mega Ball is one of the most recent additions to Live Casinos. It’s a bingo-style game where players buy cards and have to match numbers which are drawn. The more lines you get, the more you win.
Yes, you read it right – Live Slots. Some online casinos allow players to play slots live with a real-life host. If you’re wondering how this works, you may wish to take a look by visiting Bet365 where you can play live Buffalo Blitz.
A real host plays the slot and players can choose how many spins they wish to participate in and at what stake. When a bonus round hits, the sometimes hundreds of players involved light up the chat box with excitement and anticipation.
Live slots are a new way to play slots online and one which we like very much.
