One of the biggest breakthroughs in online gaming history was the introduction of live casino games. With the advancement of technology and the inability for a certain amount of players travelling to the closest land based casinos, online casinos sought out a way of bringing casino games to players instead. In order to make this possible, these casinos have collaborated with either land based casinos or casino studios which have been purposely produced in order to satisfy online casino players’ desires and needs.
There are two methods in which the live transmissions are broadcasted. This would all depend on the collaboration of the online casino and whether it has utilised the services of a land based casino or casino studio. In the case where a transmission broadcasts the dealer within a land based casino, the game play of these popular casino games is slightly different. Cameras located above the dealers’ tables will zoom in and out between a bird’s eye view of the whole table and a close up of the results produced by the said dealer. As such there is no sound omitted from this camera feed but there is background music to help soothe the online player. These dealers will be giving their attention to the actual land based casino players but online players are able to join in and play simultaneously at the beginning of each round. As is expected in a land based casino, a player may choose from a series of tables which differ according to their table limits. An online casino is able to choose from these tables depending on the minimum and maximum wagering requirements they are willing to utilise during each round. As per the rules and regulations of live game play, a player is expected to abide by such rules or the system will not allow them to take part in the round. Once the choice has been made, the player will be diverted to a separate screen where they will be able to view an imitation of the table in question. This is where the players are expected to place their bets and play live casino games. On the same screen on the top right hand corner, there will be another smaller screen where the live transmission is being broadcasted. In this method, online casino players will be able to view every detail related to the relative game play and place bets judged on the previous outcomes.
On the other hand, live transmissions being broadcasted from casino studios are somewhat different. These studios have been purposely produced in order to supply dealers for online casino players alone. This means that although online players may not be able to see any other tables seated physically at the tables, they are able to view the moves of other online players during the same round. Although will transmissions from within the land based casinos there is no limit to the total number of online players who may play the same game round, there are some online casinos who provided a limited amount of players to play a round during the transmissions from within a casino studio. The reason for this is the fact that the dealers are aware of the actual online players at their tables, and thanks to the use of audio commentary, the dealers are able to communicate with these dealers. In the meantime, the players themselves are able to form some kind of contact with the dealers through clicks of their mouse and adequate live chat. This is something that is not possible with land based casino play. But the one thing remains certain for both methods of casino game play and is the fact that they follow the same rules and regulations of the traditional casino games and players are able to winning large sums through the use of strategies should they desire. But the greatest advantage of all is that no matter the level of experience a player has in the online gaming industry, their environment is user friendly and easy to follow and understand.
